Rosalinda Alameda Mysteries

Cozy Zoo Short Stories

Lisa Shea Rosalinda Alameda Mysteries Author Lisa Shea has adored zoos since she was very little. She treasures the value of in-person encounters with endangered animals as an important way to inspire young visitors to become researchers, educators, and animal rights activists. Videos and web photos can tell a story - but spending time with a live creature in a well-designed habitat can be the life-changing moment which fosters the next Jacques Cousteau or Jane Goodall. It became natural for Lisa to embark on a project to combine her love for zoos with her desire to write and help battered women's shelters!

And it's up to her to figure out the puzzle.
