I've enjoyed it, but my taste in books is a little weird.

And yet you are an enthusiastic reader, which indicates you find things that capture your attention. What does that tell you? ;)

"A Cast of Falcons" by Steve Burrows.  It's a birder murder mystery set in the Western Highlands of Scotland.  I just started it, so I'm reserving my opinion for later.

What it actually tells me is that no matter your taste, there is something somewhere that will appeal to it ;)
I wouldn't say "weird." I'd go with "eclectic."

Looks like Steve Burrows has written at least 4 books, that are available on Amazon.
I may have to check out his mystery series.

So far; so good.  (But, he takes a while to intro all of his characters.)

My daughter passed on a series suggestion that she had gotten from someone, after my daughter had suggested the Jasper Fforde "Thursday Next" series. The suggestion was a British author named Jodi Taylor, and the series is "Chronicles of St. Mary's." The first book is "Just One Damned Thing After Another." Madeleine Maxwell is a time-traveling historian working for St. Mary's, which is a research facility. Their job is to witness historical events, and record them if possible, then come back and show everyone what really happened at Agincourt, or the Fall of Troy, etc. A lot of fun, with a cafeteria-style dollop of historical study ;) I'm already in book 4, after only 2 weeks.
*Thursday Next is a "literatec;" the characters in books get a lot of downtime when the books aren't being read, and sometimes they get up to shenanigans and the literatecs get them back in line. Also a fun series, although not as lighthearted as St. Mary's.
