Wedding preparations can be murder - but in this case it is literally true as the body of the young man scheduled to dance at Stan’s bachelorette party is discovered within the fake cake. Between trying to prevent her mother from taking over her wedding, running her pet patisserie, and helping Jessie solve the crime, Stan has her hands full. But unless the murder is quickly solved she won’t rest easy - particularly when a stalker starts targeting her and her business.
Liz Mugavero’s pawsitively organic mysteries are a treat for animal lovers as well as mystery lovers. I enjoyed Murder She Meowed immensely, especially the interactions between Stan and her family and friends. Frog Ledge is a believably close knit community, and all of the characters readers have come to know are present without situations feeling forced. The mystery itself is well crafted, and has many surprises in store...
Wow, once again Liz Mugavero has served readers a treat as tasty as those her heroine “Stan” Connor serves up in her pet bakery. Liz Mugavero consistently provides readers with entertaining mysteries where pets are more than just window dressing. In this holiday themed cozy, Santa is found in his sleigh, DOA. At first, everyone fears the victim is Seamus, the uncle of Stan’s boyfriend. Instead, it is a local drunk known to spend the winter at the local Christmas tree farm. Meanwhile noone knows where Seamus has disappeared to and why he wasn’t in the Santa Claus suit. To top everything off, Char’s husband Ray has also dropped off the map, and a number of Seamus’s shady friends have arrived in town to await his return.
Purring around the Christmas Tree is a fantastic cozy as complex and satisfying as a well seasoned mug of spiced cider...
