#Review & #Giveaway: Pawprints and Predicaments #CozyMystery


It’s the first-ever polar bear plunge in Lake Wallapawakee, and Daphne and Lauren Savidge (TV producer filming the festivities) are among the eighty or so people who charge into the frigid water to raise funds for animals in need. Daphne barely makes it back to shore—with the help of a mysterious St. Bernard—but Lauren, is dragged out stone cold dead. Now, with her trusty basset hound Socrates at her side, Daphne intends to assist Detective Jonathan Black in his investigation—whether he wants her to or not.

My review:
As an avid lover of fur babies, I was drawn to this cozy mystery because the book highlighted the love of pets throughout the book. In fact, just about every character in the book either owned a pet or came into contact with one. The whole town was considered "pet crazy." This alone gave the book an interesting read.

Getting into the mystery part of the book, I felt it took a little time to get going but with the nice little twists and turns, I kept on reading and glad I did. I absolutely thought I knew who the killer might be and found out in the end how wrong I was. This says a lot for the author as she obviously is capable of weaving words together well.

I found out that this book is a series and this is my first time reading from this author but I enjoyed her very much and look forward to possibly reading more.

4 stars.
