Collared for Murder

A Pet Boutique Mystery, #2

Izzy McHale, the owner of pet boutique Trendy Tails, is back, complete with deerstalker cap and lineup of familiar – and unfamiliar – quirky characters.

The Midwestern Cat Fanciers’ Organization is bringing its annual weeklong retreat to Merryville, Minnesota. While that’s perfect for Izzy’s business, it unleashes headaches for everyone else. The event has lots of workshops on the care and breeding of cats, and it culminates in a cat show with a fabulous prize—a platinum collar dangle worth some big bucks. But the claws really come out after the prize disappears, and the wealthy director, Phillip Denford, is done in with a pair of grooming shears.

Once Again Annie Knox writes a good cozy that is enhanced with the subplots: Will she ever see her benefactor, Ingrid, again? Can Izzy overcome her fear of commitment to find happiness with policeman JackCollins? An excellent read for a lazy summer afternoon. Four paws. – ROCCO LOTEMPIO
