Summer in Estes Park is filled with tourists, wildlife, pastries, and scandal…

The Chipmunk Chronicles, the local newspaper, has a new gossip column—and gossip is great for the Cozy Corgi Bookshop and Bakery. Though infuriated by the way people are treated by the column’s author, Winifred Page can’t help wondering about the outrageous revelations. Fred’s grumpy corgi,

Did a little bird tell

This was a tough murder for our bookseller sleuthing to solve. She and officer Susan Green become wary comrades in order to find answers to the recent murders in Estes.

Omg! Just when I think Fred and Watson couldn’t get more wrapped up in a murder mystery, Meddlesome Money proves me wrong. I loved the twists and my little ol’ heart was beating pretty fast at the end. Fred does manage to find herself in some tight situations. I can’t imagine having her determination to find the truth. I enjoyed hanging out with the Estes gang and finding out more salacious secrets. What is going on in this town? It seems like everyone has something to hide and Fred is going to ...more

Small towns have just as many secrets as the larger ones. This is shown to be true when a gossip columnist at the Chipmunk Chronicles starts airing people’s dirty laundry. Will the secrets revealed lead to murder? Will Fred have to put on her sleuthing cap? We shall see.

I can’t help but feel proud of Fred. She’s come a long ways, and despite her doubts and fears of what she might discover, she pushes on. She has shown so much growth throughout the series. The more she digs, the more secrets come
So many twists and turns!

I just couldn't figure out how Fred was going to solve this one! And the way the story came together at the end was masterful! Loved it!

I was completely taken aback! Never mind the twists and turns. Maybe never underestimate the power of a strong woman. This is my new favorite book. I’m going to try to RE-read it to see where I missed the clues. I never would have guessed who it was!

Mildred Abbott has changed up her series, and offered us a new look at how a mystery can be written. It has been thru this series , that our sleuth Winifred happens to ‘find’ a body and the story is how she unmasks a killer. In Meddlesome Money, Ms. Abbott has chosen another approach and I found it was a

Who to trust???

This was an exciting and different story. I have read all the series in order from the beginning and have enjoyed all of them. Each story is about Winfred Page and her life journey when things happened in her previous career that forced changes. She moved to a small town in Colorado and opened a book store. That's where the stories begin and mysteries are solved. This particular story was full of a lot of surprises however I was not surprised at the demise of the first individual,

Winifred (Fred) and her corgi, Watson are expecting another glorious day at the bookshop/bakery. Instead, they enter into silence... what they find launches the pair into a level of secrets and death.

A gossip has entered Estes Park, CO. Now, there are several individuals, that shall we say, enjoy the art of spreading news of an intimate situations, romantic situations and more. This gossip no one knows. And, to make matters worse there appears to be a 'hit' list.

The gossip finds

Have the stories lost their edge?

I must admit that this has been one series that i have followed faithfully but although it was great to catch up with the characters the plot itself was a definite let down. Okay it was well contrived and well executed but the spark that made the others great is missing. Is this the end of the line for this series?
A gossip writer has moved to the town and is now writing in depth pieces on some of the residents. Offering up their skeletons for the world to see.

Fred and Susan--The Mystery Continues

Once again, Fred is involved in a mystery. An anonymous reporter is writing articles about certain people in town. The articles are not nice but they are truthful. The reporter is killed but, not before some of her articles are published. Then, one of her articles causes an upstanding citizen to commit suicide. Or did he? As Fred tries to solve the mystery, she keeps being sidetracked by thoughts of the Irons family and a possible vendetta against her family.

Meddlesome Money

Just when I thought that this series couldn't get any better, this author just hit this story out of the park! The plot twists kept the pages turning right to the end. Well developed characters and the pictures painted in my head of the beautiful setting for this series just keeps me wanting more and more. Thank you for such a great read! I look forward to each new story in this series!

I have to say, I have loved this series since book 1 - Cruel Candy … and it never fails to deliver. There is a bookseller who finds herself looking into situations, and yes a murder too, for friends. There is Watson, the most wonderful grump of a Corgi you could ever meet. His favorite word is T-R-E-A-T-S, and he earns them once again. There is the on-going list of friends and townspeople for us to like, love, and maybe even “strongly dislike”. Throw in a dead body, and lots of twists! What you ...more

I so enjoy these mysteries. I love Winifred and Watson her beautiful corgi. The murderer in this book was a complete shock, and I really like that!!! The entire series has great story lines and really lovable characters. At the risk of sounding old-fashioned, I like the absence of bad language and overly sexual content. I think the cozy reader will love this story especially because of the great details, and as I said I really did not expect the ending.

Another comfy cozy from Mildred Abbott

You don’t have to love corgis (but it doesn’t hurt) to enjoy this series. Ms. Abbott weaves a community of quirky characters into each of her books. This latest episode doesn’t disappoint in any way. I want to visit the Cozy Corgi and enjoy some of Katie’s goodies.

Always enjoyable

While I was pretty sure who did it this time I wasn't 100% until the end . I always enjoy reading this series. Not your run of the mill storylines ,which are usually predictable by some authors- this author is one of my favorites - because they aren't like everyone elses's!! Keep up the good work writing !
And I'll wait impatiently for the next book!!

Crazy Cozy Corgi

I really like the personality of Watson. I believe animals can tell when people need emotional support and are so willing to give it. The rest of the characters in the book are also interesting and make for good reading. There is not bad book in the entire series and I hope there are many more of them to come.

This one is just out so I won't say much and ruin the story for anyone. I found it a quick, easy read, with just enough mentions of corgi Watson to keep me smiling, and look forward to the next book from Mildred Abbott.

Number 13 in the series

This mystery was one I enjoyed a little more than some in the series. I was surprised by who done it just like our heroine. Looking forward to the next book in the,series.

Fred and Watson solve their most difficult case to date

Watch Watson sniff out clues while his human tries to make sense of what has been going on in her small Colorado town. Well-drawn characters in realistic settings. Highly recommended

I love the development of the characters in this series. This particular book had me intrigued from the beginning. I could not figure out the killer which I really admire in this author. Her clues are not obvious.

This series continues to entertain. The writing is still top notch, Watson is still the one in charge and is adorable. Fred's family is most definitely out there. I can hardly wait for the next one...

Also, the latest Hallmark dream casting: Treat Williams for Gerald.

Reading the Cozy Corgi series is pretty much all you need to know about Mildred. In real life, she’s obsessed with everything she writes about: Corgis, Books, Cozy Mountain Towns, and Baked Goods. She’s not obsessed with murder, however. At least not at her own hands (nor paid for… no contract killing here). But since childhood, starting with Nancy Drew, trying to figure out who-dun-it has played ...more
