There never seems to be a dull moment in Frog Ledge, CT for Stan Connor, owner of Pawsitively Organic Pet Patisserie. Stan is attempting to plan her wedding to Jake, who owns and runs McSwigg’s Irish Pub. However, she and her mother, Patricia, are at odds as the older woman wants to do the planning *her* way. As this delightful cozy mystery begins to unfold, I wondered what on earth could Organic farming and a bachelorette party have in common? One thing’s for sure—I was surprised by this plot t ...more

I know that I’ve said it before, but here it is again, I love finding a new cozy mystery series. So, here I am with Murder She Meowed which is book #7 in the Pawsitively Organic Mystery series by Liz Mugavero. I was not disappointed.

Let me preface this review by stating that this was my first introduction to this particular set of stories; I had not realized that it was a part of a series when I saw it on NetGalley. However, apart from a few references made about earlier books, I did not feel to

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for the chance to read this book!

I always enjoy this seres, and this book was no exception. I did feel at times that the mystery took a backseat to the other story, that of the preparation for Stan and Jake's wedding, and that maybe they weren't AS invested in finding this murderer as Perry wasn't really connected to them. However it still had all the fun of previous books with baking and pet antics, and Stan is still a great character. I wonder how many

I love this series! It just continues to get better and better. The author shares her love of pets and people to bring us an eclectic group of small-town friends, lovable cats and dogs, and more suspects and twists than the average cozy mystery.

Stan, owner of a new storefront, organic pet patisserie in Frog Ledge, is marrying Jake, who she met shortly after moving to Frog Ledge. I like Stan. Her priorities, business acumen, and loyalties to friends, family, and pets are what make her the fine yo

Welcome to Frog Ledge and the wedding of the season. The time has arrived for the nuptials of Stan and Jake but alas it's Frog Ledge so everything can't go as planned. Over the last six books in this series, Stan has come across her fair share of bodies and this book is no different.

I love this series and was so happy to be able to review this book. I've been reading about Stan, Jake, and the rest of the gang since the beginning. Finally, in this book, we come to the wedding of Jake and Stan - whoo hoo! Unfortunately, murder overshadows the planning process, as does Stan's mother, Patricia, with all of her over-the-top wedding plans. We are finally introduced to Stan's best friend, Nikki in the flesh and even Jessie seems to have softened up to Stan and her "meddling" ways. ...more

In this one, Stan and her pets and Jake and his pets are finally getting married, but a man is murdered at Stan's bachlorette party leading to some complications, thrills and chills.

I really enjoy this story. Liz Mugavero always delivers in this series.
This had an interesting twist to the story, Jessie needs Stan’s help. I liked how everyone pulled together to solve the mystery and get the wedding on the road.
Thoroughly enjoyable.
Looking forward to another installment.
I volunteered to read and review an ARC of this book provided by Kensington Publishing Corporation and NetGalley. These are my unsolicited opinions.

When a vital, happy young man is murdered everyone is shocked. Could it be he wasn't as wonderful as people thought? It turns out that he does have a well kept secret but is that the reason he was murdered? Stan Connor feels she needs to find out what happened because not only was he murdered in her pet patisserie but also during her bachelorette party.

After some unique twists and one very creative threat the murderer is revealed but I was left wanting to know what is next for many of the main

Liz Mugavero has been writing stories since she could hold a pen. Before that, she would tell them to anyone who would listen (not many at the time). After deciding early on she would write books for a living, she practiced by writing bad, angst-filled poems, short stories and even a storyline for a soap opera--all by age 15. She never wavered from her goals despite all the usual questions includi ...more
