Pawprints & Predicaments

Mystery & Thrillers
Pub Date 27 Feb 2018
I absolutely adore Bethany Blake’s animal cozies. She has such an amazing way of bringing the various furred characters to life. As an animal lover and pet parent I’m well aware of the quirks our beloved friends have and the ways we happily bend over backwards to make them happy. That is at the core of Pawprints and Predicaments. Sylvan Creek is famously pet friendly, so much so that it is the topic of a television series. But not everyone is enamoured with the quirky tourist town. Tv producer Lauren Savidge has other ideas - ideas that get her murdered. Once again Daphne Templeton, pet sitter extraordinaire is lured into investigating. This charming mystery has plenty of wonderful pets, unusual characters, quirky customs, humorous hijinks and just the right dose of romance.
Pawprints and Predicaments is fun, festive and funny - making for a fabulous cosy read.
5 / 5
I received a copy of Pawprints and Predicaments from the publisher and Netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
The Tail Waggin’ Winterfest is the highlight of the season in the famously pet-friendly Pocono Mountains town of Sylvan Creek. But despite attractions like an ice sculpture display, a dogsled race, and gourmet hot chocolate, Daphne Templeton finds herself annoyed by TV producer Lauren Savidge, who’s filming the festivities. She’s critical, controlling, and as chilly as the January air. Daphne would like to tell her to go jump in a lake—and as a matter of fact, that’s exactly what they’re both going to do . . .
It’s the first-ever polar bear plunge in Lake Wallapawakee, and Daphne and Lauren are among the eighty or so people who charge into the frigid water to raise funds for animals in need. Daphne makes it back to shore—with the help of a mysterious St. Bernard—but Lauren is dragged out stone cold dead. Now, with her trusty basset hound Socrates at her side, Daphne intends to assist Detective Jonathan Black in his investigation—whether he wants her to or not . . .
