April 6 – My Reading Journeys - REVIEW
About the book
Two murders on the same strip of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach means dog bakery owner Samantha Armstrong and her fellow shopkeepers have reached their quota of bad stuff. Right?
They should be so lucky…
Samantha is thrilled that life in her new hometown has finally settled into a fun, peaceful rhythm. Canine Confections’ business is on the upswing, and her days are filled with jogs on the beach with her pooch Sweet Pea, cozy time with Aunt Mary on her aunt’s estate, and yummy treats at her upscale dog bakery. But things are not peaceful for long when Donna from the local gossip magazine, Pulse on Palm Beach, winds up dead at Samantha’s first foray into catering a millionaire dog’s birthday party.
Once again, Samantha finds herself smack dab in the middle of the investigation. But this time, it’s another reporter from Pulse that’s making her center-stage. With the aid of her precious Sweet Pea, Samantha pads around the splashy Worth Avenue sniffing out clues. Unfortunately, the more she searches, the more suspects she finds. And it doesn’t help that Angelina from Mystic Dreams has hired a psychic who warns that trouble in Palm Beach isn’t about to end anytime soon.
Includes an original recipe from the world-famous Three Dog Bakery!
And I thought
A cute cover. Like really cute. Which usually don't 'Get me'.
Many a time I have had made the mistake of judging a book by its cover.
I took a chance and was glad I did.
Paws of Death was a page turner that kind a had me on the edge of my seat.
Maybe it was the long forgotten (or so you would think) tunnels hidden beneath the shops in town. Which are not forgotten and make great little hidden holes for bad guys and makes for an adventure to figure out who's doing the crimes and leaving us in the tunnels.
This was my first chance to read the series.
I enjoyed meeting the characters.
Samantha the main Character reminds me of the character in one of my favorite series. She kind of tends to be a bit noisy when she's sleuthing. And we'll doesn’t really have a filter.
But in the end she is quick to apologize and make friends with folks she really doesn't intend to befriend.
I was a bit uncertain about the detective. I wasn't sure how he fit in.
Which makes me want to read the previous books.
I enjoyed every page turn and putting the series on my Wish List.
I received a complimentary copy.
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.

I'm so glad you enjoyed my book! Thank you for reading it. And poor Detective Trumble. I'm a little worried that Aunt Mary might break his lollipop-loving heart in Book 4. I guess we'll have to wait and see...ReplyDelete
