Murder She Meowed
Murder, She Meowed by Liz Mugavero Kensington Books Mystery & Thrillers Pub Date 29 Jan 2019
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 for readers. I definitely recommend Murder She Meowed to anyone who enjoys cozy mysteries.

Description Kristan “Stan” Connor loves concocting tasty organic treats for dogs and cats—and she also loves her fiancé, pub owner Jake McGee. But she’s not so enthusiastic about finding a dead body at her own bachelorette party . . . Stan and Jake’s wedding will soon take place on the town green in Frog Ledge, Connecticut, followed by a reception at their beloved Irish pub filled with friends, family, and their four favorite canine companions. Stan just has to endure the traditional girls’ night out first. Male strippers jumping out of gigantic cakes aren’t her preferred entertainment. But the hired hottie never gets around to taking it all off . . . because someone takes him out first with one of Stan’s kitchen knives. A heartbroken Stan recognizes the victim as one of the delivery men from the local farm—who must have been moonlighting for some extra cash. Now the guest list has turned into a suspect list—and Stan’s making a vow to find the killer . . . Includes Gourmet Pet Food Recipes!
