Has anyone read either of Cynthia Baxter's two cozy series--Reigning Cats & Dogs or the new series featuring travel writer Mallory Meadows?

I've not read this series but curiously, I errantly received one of her books a couple of weeks ago.  The book that I wanted has the same color cover (bright yellow) as "Hare Today, Dead Tomorrow" and the sender happened to have both books.  It's all sorted out.

I haven't heard anything aobut this series.

Anna, I have read all the "Reigning Cats and Dogs"  series and am anxiously awaiting the new book coming out in August.  I think you would like them.  There are a few authors that I wait with baited breath for their new books and Cynthia Baxter is one of them.  Main character is a veterinarian who runs her practice out of a mobile van on Long Island.  She has a love interest, several pets, and a quirky, loveable neighbor.  I'd rate the series PG.  Love them!

I read the first book and it just seemed too long for a cozy (at least I think it is a cozy!).  I have the 2nd book and will give it another shot but not sure after that.

It was good but could have been trimmed back quite a bit

I haven't read them, but I keep putting the newer releases on my wishlist for my mom.  She loves them!

I'm with Starla only I've read 1-4 of the Cats & Dogs sderies and have 5 - 7 on the ol' TBR pile.  I also have 1 & 2 of the Molly Marlowe sitting right next to them.  My TBR is organized, alphabethical - nose in the air...lol.  If only I could read faster, sigh.
