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

4.5 stars!


An especially intriguing and enjoyable book in a series that always delivers a GREAT cozy mystery read!

I just love how Cynthia Baxter mixes so many various elements into her plot in each book that add layer upon layer of interest. This time we have several surprise events in Jessica and Nick's relationship, a hoity-toity ultra exclusive high school for the daughters of the super wealthy, lots

It was a good mystery. The heroine got herself lots of funny predictments from her plumbing in her cottage. The tape came off ; the water flooding everything ; all she had on a bathrobe and a man friend helped by turning the water off and all he had on was a towel after cleaning the floor. Her fiance came in at wrong moment and went in a huff. But she found the person who kill her fiance's cousin and had her cottage burned down and finally got married.
Good but nothing especially noteworthy or unexpected, kind of run of the mill for this series. Minor quibbles: some characters are pretty stereotypical; and the title is cutesy but there's no lamb in the book outside a few mentions of a family's "black sheep". And if I were a client of this mobile vet, I'd be ticked off at the way she trashes her pesky appointment schedule at the drop of a hat to make time for sleuthing.
Another cozy mystery series which is based on a veterinarian and she stumbles on her mysteries by having a vet-mobile to visit her patients which also gives her the chance to find all kinds of murders that she can solve. This series involves animals, but not the talking type. I enjoyed these WHEN I just wanted very light reading….

Murder Had a Little Lamb is a wonderful light read. The main character in the Reigning Cats & Dogs Mystery series is a vet on long island with a longtime fiance. She is constantly getting involved in murder investigations which she juggles with her mobile vet practice. The characters are likable and the storylines interesting. This is one series that I don't want to see come to an end.
If you've made it this far into the series you should know what to expect. This was a light read with another situation Jess has gotten involved in. My problem with this one was the ending. It just seemed a bit rushed.
This continues to be a fun series. A distant cousin is killed at Jessie's wedding, and her mother-in-law to be asks her to help find the killer.
Another enjoyable read. This time we learn about the world of art and private schools.
