The Sugar Maple Inn is hosting a matchmaking event – Animals Attraction, for pet owners. They have brought in their own matchmaker to pair up couples based on a very pet based questionnaire.
Where you cat or dog sleeps says much about you and who your mate should be.
As if running the event isn’t enough to keep Holly on her toes, her grandmother has secretly filled out a form for her. Her ex surprises her by showing up too. No, they were not matched together. 🙂 But while out walking with her match Trixie, her Jack Russell terrier, sniffs out another body. A man that just happens to have a personal letter in his pocket a letter from her grandmother. So while Wagtail is overflowing with cats, dogs, and the people who love them trying to find Mr. or Ms. Right, there is also a murderer on the loose. Hopefully the police with Holly’s “help” will catch them soon so some of the couples can begin their happily ever afters.
I want to move to Wagtail as soon as possible. Yes, they have had a little crime wave of late but it sounds like the purrfect place to me. Restaurants, stores, hotels all allow pets to come right in with their people. The restaurants even have special pet menus. Krista Davis has created a wonderful place.
There are several new characters introduced as The Sugar Maple Inn’s guests arrive and each of them is accompanied by their pet or one loaned to them by the local, If The Dog Fits program. Not everyone is there to be matched up though, there are 2 moms spying on their daughters to make sure they make good matches. This makes for some funny moments until their daughters find out. The pets also bring their own type of humor to the story. Whether human, canine, or feline, the characters are so well written and unique. It was a pleasure to meet or revisit each and every one.
As for the mystery, I was drawn in immediately and it was pretty complicated too. I was totally in the dark until the final reveal. I had theories but they were all debunked as new clues were uncovered. This is how I love my cozies, the ones that keep you guessing from start to finish. Ms. Davis is a wonderful storyteller.
Love and murder is in the air in Wagtail, Virginia and I recommend you read all about it as soon as possible!
