I love her books and all the cozy books. I didnt know if I would like one on a an animal other than a dog or cat but she has pets and this was a very good mystery. I like her sense of humor too. The people in her books seem more down to earth and real
The main character is a veterinary, who falls into murder/mysteries, who happens to be better at solving them than the police! If you are an animal lover, who also loves murder/mysteries, her books won't dissappoint you.
Liked the twist of having a roaming vet-on-wheels slueth who tends to get nosey and loves to have truth win out. And her companions in her adventure are a stitch...animals with their own issues. Will let you read to learn about them. An extremely fun read!
3rd book in the reigning Cats & Dogs mystery series by Cynthia baxter. Enjoyable, cozy mystery. Jessica becomes involved in the high society polo circle as she investigates a murder and as always, ends up in serious danger herself.
