About the author
Bethany Blake lives in a small, quaint town in Pennsylvania with her husband and three daughters. When she’s not writing or riding horses, she’s wrangling a menagerie of furry family members that includes a nervous pit bull, a fearsome feline, a blind goldfish, and an attack cardinal named Robert. Like Daphne Templeton, the heroine of her Lucky Paws Mysteries, Bethany holds a Ph.D. and operates a pet sitting business called Barkley’s Premium Pet Care.
And I thought
Another new series to enjoy. I loved Death By Chocolate Lab.
I enjoyed meeting Daphne and Socrates (he dog he's pictured on the cover).
This fun little cozy mystery is full of twists. I thought I knew who 'did it'. And I thought I figured it out. Then I talked myself out of my 'accusation' only to find in the end I was correct in my first thought.
This reader was kept guessing.
I am looking forward to more books in the series. Especially because I want to see the 'infatuation' between Daphne and the handsome Detective Black turn into a real romance. They are so cute and funny together. Each try's not to 'get involved'. But circumstances and Daphne's meddling in 'his case' keep bringing them together.
Daphne is a fun quirky 'free spirit' who tends to run out of gas and tends to be meddlesome when it come to proving that her sister
Piper isn't the murder.
There a few other characters in town that become suspects for various reasons. Each of the characters are a fun part of the story.
I wasn't entirely sure how I would feel about the book and the concept of a mystery revolving around a bunch of dogs. I was afraid it would be a little corny.
But it wasn't I was delighted as I read the story. It was much more than I expected. The addition of the various dogs made the story fun.
The author did a great job of telling a story that kept this reader
interested all the way to the end.
I usually try to choose a character in the book that I would like to meet and have coffee with and interview for a future blog post.
The character I chose I wouldn't be able to share a cup of coffee but I might could offer a dog treat. And see if I could get him to 'talk'. I enjoyed Daphne's dog Socrates. His character was adorable. He was a laid back dog that 'thought' alot. Hence his name. He was Daphne's constant companion. And in the end he turned out to be one of her hero's saving Daphne from becoming another victim.
I am looking forward to reading many more books in the series.
I received a complimentary e-copy. I read the book on my phone.
