This book revolves around a murder at a private pet-rescue operation that is directed by Lauren Vancouver. Ms. Vancouver is our new sleuth and she brings her talents of organization to the search for the killer, which, we know is Not herself, despite what the prime detective feels.
In a way, I wish that our police persons would give our sleuths a vote of confidence once in awhile, but at least this detective didn't harass her to bits and pieces.
Also, inside the book, we glimpse the cruelties of puppy mills and how "non-kill" animal shelters work. Our local shelter just joined this grouping and I'm so happy about it.
I expect this book series will continue to gain strengths and soon be a 5 star one for me.
But I couldn't like this "Pet Rescue" mystery. I like a mystery that is escapism, perhaps with a bit of humor. This series, with the spectre of animals being abused and euthanized, is just too dark.
The person who killed the dog abuser in the case should have been given a medal, in my opinion.
None of the characters were particularly sparkling. I liked Lauren, but I don't have any desire to spend more time with her. I don't want to hear more about animals in cages.
If another Pet Sitter mystery comes out, I'll quickly buy it, but I'm not returning to the Pet Rescue series.
