#7 Reigning Cats & Dogs mystery series (Vet/amateur sleuth Jessica Popper)

Jessica is awakened before dawn by a phone call from a vet school friend she hasn't heard from in ten years. Erin urges Jessica to meet her immediately, as she has an urgent problem and needs Jessica's help. When Erin is a no-show at the coffee shop, Jessica learns she's been murdered.

As always, Cynthia Baxter's cozy mystery series features lots of four legged, feathered friends as mobile vet Jessica is drawn into a mu

This is another great Jessica Popper cozy in the Reigning Cats and Dogs series by Cynthia Baxter. While Jessica's getting ready to marry Nick, a call from a friend from vet school calls her for help, before she's murdered. It's up to Jessica to find out more about friend's life and work at the zoo, while dealing with exotic animals and suspicions from an unexpected person. Shocking twists and turns. Though I skipped #5-6, which I'll read later this year, I can't wait to read #8 next year, along ...more

This series just is what it is. Mobile house-call vet Jessica Popper. Lots of fun, familiar characters, plenty of appearances by pets, and a decent story line. You can usually see all the plot points coming, if you're paying attention, but when reading a cozy mystery, you're usually just letting your brain rest, be entertained, and coast along.

I am loving this fun book. It's about a veterinarian detective . . . which is right up my alley! I love the author's description of all the animals and the silly things they do while the main character is trying to solve a murder. It is quite enjoyable to read it while I'm munching on my pumpkin cookies!

This is another story in the series featuring Long Island veterinarian, Jessie Popper. (Although if you are trying to figure out the location references, the names of the Long Island towns have been changed.) Jessie stumbles into a illegal animal smuggling business in this "light" mystery.

Reigning Cats and Dogs Mysteries are cute, fluffy reads. This one involves the murder of vet school classmate Erin and may or may not have ended with Jessie's wedding to Nick. It was a good beach book.

I thought this one was good. I liked the characters on her suspect list. This author always has you guessing until about halfway through the book. The zoo angle was different too, which I liked.

Continue to enjoy the series. Sometimes a little alike, but each book has focused on different things so you also learn quite a bit about them.
any book with a monkey on the cover can't be too bad :) kinda reminded me of a stephanie plum novel...some funny moments and a fast read...

Very light but amusing. Decent characterizations. Info dumps occasionally. I'll try another.

My favorite thing to do is read - and my second favorite is to write. Since 2003, I've been writing The Reigning Cats & Dogs Mystery Series, which features veterinarian Jessica Po
