Product Description

Pit Bulls are Sweet . . . and that's no mystery!

Fall in love with Lily Mason, the shifter who only wants to live as a human, and her pit bull Smooshie, a rescue dog who in the end may be the one doing the rescuing!

Pit Perfect, Book 1 of the Barkside of the Moon Mysteries from USA Today bestselling paranormal cozy mystery author Renee George, is an exciting tale of mystery and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat.

When cougar-shifter Lily Mason moves to Moonrise, Missouri, she wishes for only three things from the town and its human population. . . to find a job, to find a place to live, and to live as a human, not a therianthrope.

Lily gets more than she bargains for when a rescue pit bull named Smooshie rescues her from an oncoming car, and it's love at first sight. Thanks to Smooshie, Lily's first two wishes are granted by Parker Knowles, the owner of the Pit Bull Rescue center, who offers her a job at the shelter and the room over his garage for rent.

Lily's new life as an integrator is threatened when Smooshie finds Katherine Kapersky, the local church choir leader and head of the town council, dead in the field behind the rescue center. Unfortunately, there are more suspects than mourners for the elderly town leader. Can Lily keep her less-than-human status under wraps? Or will the killer, who has pulled off a nearly Pit Perfect murder, expose her to keep Lily and her dog from digging up the truth?

This paranormal cozy mystery contains cougar-shifters, shifters, lovable pit bulls, and supernatural beings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pit Perfect is a fun paranormal cozy mystery filled with murder mystery and mayhem 15 December 2016
By D. Antonio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Pit Perfect is a fun paranormal cozy mystery filled with murder mystery and mayhem. Cougar-shifter Lily hasn’t had an easy life but she is starting over in a human town where the only other shifter is an uncle she has never met. Lily is plucky with a terrific sense of humor. When she gets to town she immediately discovers 2 things. The 4 way stop in front of the repair shop is deadly (Probably because the sign is broken) and she has been adopted by an adorable pit bull she names Smooshie. Smooshie introduces Lily to Parker Knowles owner of a pit bull rescue operation; the one Smooshie escaped from. When Parker is wrongfully accused of killing the meanest woman in town it is Lily and Smooshie on the case. This town is filled with memorable characters and a lot of secrets. Now that Lily is sticking around we may find out some of them but who knows Lily’s secret?
5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable Pitt! Cute cozy mystery! 11 May 2017
By Creating-Serenity Reviews - Published on Amazon.com

I’m a sucker for pups. I was not one to go all crazy and smiley faced because I saw a dog prior to getting my first pup. Then he spoiled me! Four dogs later and I cannot resist the urge to walk up to every stranger and pet their dogs. It’s a thing with dog lovers, apparently.

Pits are even more adorable, crazy babies. My pit is my counselor. Although he’s my hubby’s dog, if I get upset for any reason, he is on my lap. A 100 pound counselor on my lap is a great way to immediately recognize that I need to calm down! Needless to say, when I saw this cozy mystery I could not pass it up! Book two is publishing soon so I knew I needed to read book one.

This was just as adorable as I thought it would be. The pup in this, Smooshie, is more than adorable. She’s a Pitt, and as such she’s a protector and a lover. I can’t say that Smooshie stole the show though because Lily Mason did a wonderful job of keeping center stage with her Nancy Drew antics.

Being a cozy mystery lover, I wouldn’t say this is my favorite but it is definitely worth the read. The plot was perfect for a cozy mystery, the dogs added quite a bit of appeal, and the idea that Lily is not human adds another element that I normally don’t see in the average cozy mystery. Pit Perfect has a lot to pull the reader in but it is also good enough to keep you entertained as well.

Loved the characters, there are quite a few in this one, but Buzz and Lily definitely stay center. I think that was the only real downside. Lily is new to this town and as such she meets a lot of characters in a very small amount of time. Plus, sadly, a lot of information was given at the beginning of the book and it made me want a prequel to this. After searching Goodreads I’m guessing the prequel is Witchin’ Impossible but these two are in two different sets of series, although Lily does talk about Hazel, so I’ll have to do a bit more reading. I would have loved to read the story behind Lily in a book rather than just being force fed in this one.

That said, this is fun! I can’t wait to get my hands onto book two and here more of Lily and Smooshie’s shenanigans.

I love the pit bull mixes in this story. People should be aware of what great animals they can be when treated well, just like humans...
The Kindle Universe books are excellent entertainment. I have truly enjoyed every book I've read in it. I can't wait to buy the next pit story, so hopefully it's out now.
Happy reading!
5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Pet Lover Paranormal Cozy 29 May 2017

This is such a fun cozy mystery. Cougar shifter Lily leaves tragedy behind to make a new start by moving to a new town and finding her relative. She is saved from danger by a runaway rescue pit bull and that's where the fun and mystery begins. I really enjoyed this book. Steady pace with lots of action and just the right amount of romance. Love that is was also about such an amazing and loving breed and the rescue aspect made for an even more enjoyable story. I am looking forward to the next in this series and hope for many more.
