I finished this book on January 9. Amazon wouldn’t let me post a review there even though I’ve not made any rule infractions so I guess here and Goodreads will have to do. In fact, Amazon has totally wiped away ALL my reviews, even the non-book ones. I have no clue why. If anyone knows how to get those back, please let me know too!
I’ve been reading the Happy Tails Dog Walking mysteries from the beginning so these characters are always like coming back to old friends.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Olivia Rickard and her boyfriend Andrew are back together but lately he’s been a little distant and not talking much as well as postponing or cancelling their dates all together. Olivia follows him to one of these meetings since she eavesdropped on his conversation when they were together and he took the call. She sees him with a blonde and a rose. When the blonde ends up dead, Olivia is worried that Andrew would be the main suspect since he was probably the last to see her alive so of course she can’t have that and starts investigating.
In the meantime, Janelle hasn’t been in a great mood since she’s wanting to expand into catering which also means needing to expand her bakery. As if two things weren’t bad enough, Jackie tells Olivia she’s had a vandal in her book store. Soon after that, Olivia’s office is trashed and a warning note is found. Despite Nick’s warnings to stay off his investigation, Olivia feels the need to keep on but has to keep watching her back because she is afraid she could be the next murder victim.
Like the other three books, this books was fun and quick read and had plenty of great clues and suspects. I really didn’t see it coming as to the killers identity. Andrew’s secret was revealed and all was right with the world after the killer was caught. The vandal was never caught so I’m guessing that story line will continue into the next book which I will actually be reading…next!
