Hopefully, you’ll find some great suggestions to add to your TBR pile and wish lists. Also, be sure to comment below and let me know what murderous mystery books you are reading!
I recently read Murder, She Barked by Krista Davis. This is the first book in the Paws and Claws Mystery series. I really loved it and am excited to read more in this series. And, as a bonus…there was even more than one murder and crime in this book! 🙂 Since this was a 5-star read for me, it is the first book I am featuring for Murderous Mondays!
The Sugar Maple Inn in Wagtail, Virginia, is the country’s premiere vacation hot spot for pet owners who can’t bear to leave their furry friends behind. But this tourist town smells trouble when a killer goes on the prowl…
Holly Miller’s life has gone to the dogs. She has no job, her boyfriend’s former flame is sniffing around, and a scruffy but loveable Jack Russell Terrier is scattering crumbs all over her borrowed car. Just when she thought things couldn’t get worse, a troubling phone call about her grandmother sends her rushing home to the family inn on Wagtail Mountain.
The staff—and a frisky Calico kitten named Twinkletoes—adopts Holly and her new dog on arrival. But someone in this friendly town is bad to the bone. One of the employees at the inn has been killed in a hit-and-run accident—which is looking anything but accidental. Now Holly and her furry companions will have to nose out the murderer before someone else gets muzzled.
Delicious recipes for owners and pets included!
My review of Murder, She Barked from Goodreads:
I enjoyed reading this first-in-a-series cozy mystery from author Krista Davis. I purchased it for my Kindle a couple of years ago and I’m so glad I finally made time to fit it into my reading schedule.
Holly finds herself heading back to Wagtail, Virginia, to help her grandmother (Oma). After murders and some unsolved crimes, Wagtail, a premier pet town, is feeling uneasy. Wagtail sounds like the perfect town, and I would love to stay at the Sugar Maple Inn with Oma and Holly.
The mystery kept me guessing, as I tried to figure out just how the crimes were connected and who could be the guilty culprit. I am looking forward to my next visit to Wagtail. If you like cozy mysteries with a smart female sleuth, LOTS of pets, and an endearing town, look no further than Murder, She Barked.
