Kneading to Die by Liz Mugavero

Stan is just moving into a beautiful Victorian home in a small town with her cat, Nutty, when she meets the city vet.  The female vet is even nuttier than her cat and demands that Stan bring the cat by the next morning for a health checkup.  To keep the peace, she does so.  And what she finds is a murdered veterinarian...

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review.  It's being published this month and is the first in "A Pawsitively Organic Mystery" series.   Check with your local bookstore for a copy.

It's hard to get a good start to a new life when you find yourself accused of murder.  Liz had actually been a bit glad to lose her high stress publicity job, but this isn't much better.  No one knows her, her old boyfriend isn't around much, and she doesn't like the looks or the gossip going around.  She decides to do some snooping on her own.

This story is filled with animals, mostly dogs.  I'm an animal person, so this story really appealed to me.  Animals and a mystery, what more could I want?

There are also gourmet pet food recipes in the back.  Want to make some healthy, taste-good recipes for your animals?  Here you go.

By the end of the story more than one mystery has been solved and Stan is working on a new boyfriend, one she's met in town.  This was a good story and I look forward to reading about her next adventure and seeing how her romance and new business advance.

Happy reading.
