Bark Up and Smell the Coffee–review

This is the second book in the Paws Fur Play series by Stella St. Claire, the author of the Happy Tails Dog Walking series. I love the characters in this series and little Telescope is a pup I would just love to cuddle! He’s fiercely loyal to Willow, his human who adopted him, and he likes showing that just because he’s little and only has three legs, he can do anything he sets his mind to do. I think you’ll like this book as much as I did!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book provided by the author via InstaFreebie. The book releases next week, August 28. I’m now anxious for the third book!

My Goodreads review:

Bark Up and Smell the Coffee (Paws Fur Play Mystery Book 2)Bark Up and Smell the Coffee by Stella St. Claire

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was another awesome book in this series. I just love little Telescope and how intuitive he is to Willow’s needs or thoughts. He got to be a hero in this book too, proving that just because a dog is little, they can still be a good protector.

After the murder of a local B&B owner, Willow’s newest championship-bound client (actually the dog would be the champion-bound one) is suspected of the murder. Willow is sure she didn’t do it, so she sets out to find out who else may have wanted the woman dead. Her sister, Wednesday, was still working at the police department, but she seemed to be slacking a lot in her day job due to an assignment she got from a social news site. Then there was the matter of wanting to date again, and trying to figure out where she stood with Griffin, her high school friend and contractor. Tele got to save the day again in the showdown with the killer, who eventually confessed.

The book had opened with so many things going wrong for Willow, but I was pleased to find that it closed on a very happy note! Let’s just say she’s had an epiphany about dating! I’m really enjoying this series from the story itself to the adorable cover artwork.

I was able to enjoy this book a little early due to receiving an advance copy from the author as part of her ARC team. I would like to say thanks for that! I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book.
