About the book
pleasing mélange of mystery and pet lore." — Kirkus Reviews
In the second installment of this animal-themed cozy series, Dr. Kate Turner has one New Year's resolution: Stop finding corpses...
All Dr. Kate Turner wants to do is get her life in order before ringing in the new year, but with bodies turning up left and right, she'll have to trust her own instincts—and those of her beloved animals—to stop a killer in their tracks.
As the only veterinarian at Oak Falls Animal Hospital, Dr. Kate's life is complicated. She's swamped with hospital patients and house calls, a long-distance relationship with law student Luke Gianetti (that is less than perfect), and a handsome, flirtatious artist who sets his sights on her as his new muse.
When the body of Sookie Overmann is found outside the community center after her organization seminar, the entire town is hunting for answers. All of Kates hopes of quietly ringing in the new year are lost and when the body of Sookie's assistant falls with the confetti at midnight, she has no choice but to sniff out the killer.
And I thought
I typically don't really research a new author until I write my review.
I couldn't help but wonder about Eileen Brady. I was thinking she had some excellent help and did a bunch of research because as I read I felt like I was really in a Dog hospital.
The emergency scenes, the typical day appointments at the clinic were spot on.
I really enjoyed reading this book.
The mystery was entertaining and a bit twisty and turning taking the reader on a bit of a wild ride.
When an author includes a sub plot or another story or mystery woven into the main plot speaks volumes to me and I realize just how well written the book is. In this cc asr the mysterious hurt Pit Bull that shows up wrapped in a blanket by the clinic dumpster.
Eventually his mystery is solved and he is reunited with his family.
And through lots of interviews and and digging Dr. Kate manages to untangle the web of lies and deception and figure out who did it.
This one will be on my picks of the year. And I will be reading book 1 as soon as I get a chance.
Author Eileen Brady is a veterinarian living in Scottsdale, Arizona. She is a wife and mother of two daughters and often has to chase her six cats and two dogs away from her laptop keyboard. The Kate Turner, DVM Mysteries is her first series.
