A Biscuit, A Casket: A Pawsitively Organic Mystery by Liz Mugavero

Stan's new business is taking off.  Everyone likes her gourmet pet food recipes and it helps their cats and dogs be healthy.  She even gets invited to provide the treats for a "doggy costume party".  This should be a happy time, but it's interrupted by one of the workers in the maze.  It's Halloween season and the farm has a corn maze with monsters inside to make it scary.  What's even more scary and chilling is the dead body in the center of the maze...

Kensington Books sent me a copy of the ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published April 1st, so watch for it at your local bookstore.

The dead farmer is Hal, the farm owner.  He has lots of folks who don't like him, he hasn't been much of a husband or father, but nobody really had a good reason to kill him.  At least nobody showed it.  The police chief is not happy to see Stan on the scene again.  It seems when death happens, Stan finds it.  Stan has a crush on Jake, who is the police chief's brother.  That makes these occasions even stickier.

When Hal's wife Emma is accused of his murder, Stan decides to get more involved in the investigation.  What she finds is that everyone in town has secrets.  She just has to find out which ones are the deadliest.  And she better find out before she's the one that is dead...

This is an entertaining cozy mystery that will keep you reading and rooting for Stan.

Happy reading.
