Take a rather ordinary cozy, add a magnificent scene-stealing German Shepherd and you end up with an extraordinary story. I'm a sucker for dogs, but this one is more than just window dressing, and has an appeal even those not fond of dogs would have difficulty denying.
Kate Davidson receives an unexpected shock when an expected proposal is replaced with an unexpected confession. Her boyfriend Michael is married, and his wife won't accept a divorce unless he pays her off. Kate, Michael and Company travel to see her, but hopes of an amicable settlement are quickly dispersed when Kate and her dog Bella find his wife’s body and Michael becomes the police’s chief suspect. Once again Kate and Rene have their hands full investigating a murder.
Pre-Meditated Murder is a cute cozy that will appeal to dog lovers and mystery lovers alike. It is a terrific addition to Tracy Weber’s series. I'm definitely a fan of Bella and her human.
4 / 5
I received a copy of Pre-Meditated Murder from the publisher and Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
If Kate Doesn't Act Fast, the Only "I Do" in Michael's Future Will Be at His Trial
Yoga instructor Kate Davidson is ready to marry her boyfriend Michael, so she's disappointed when a special dinner doesn't end with a proposal. But disappointment turns to dismay and outrage as she learns the real problem: Michael is already married and his estranged wife is blackmailing him.
When his wife's body is found—by Kate and her dog, no less—Michael is strangely unable to remember where he was the night she died. Since Michael has no alibi, Kate steps up to uncover what happened. What she walks into is a tangled web of deceit, obsession, and immigration fraud . . . with Michael trapped in the middle.
