Murder, She Barked

A Paws and Claws Mystery, #1

Krista Davis, author of the “Domestic Diva” mysteries, has given us another winner with the first in her “Paws and Claws” mysteries!

Holly Miller’s life has gone to the dogs. She has no job and her boyfriend’s old girlfriend wants him back and since she is his boss’s daughter she is always around. Then she gets a phone call to return home to Wagtail from her grandmother’s friend saying her grandmother needs her. She wastes no time, hops into her boyfriend’s car, tells him she will call when she knows more and heads to Virginia. She makes a quick stop for gas before heading up the mountain and picks up a “hitchhiker” – A Jack Russell Terrier who has been left behind by someone makes himself right at home in the car. Then she learns there was a hit and run accident and one of the Inn’s employees was killed. Holly thinks it may not have been so much of an accident.

Fans will love the humans and the animals in this series! The mystery is well plotted, the characters are well fleshed out. Looks like Davis has another winner!

Four and a half Stars!
