Halloween creeps in, bringing costumes, carbs, and a corpse or two…

Estes Park is bustling with fall tourists as Winifred and Katie deck out the Cozy Corgi Bookstore and Bakery, while corgi mascot, Watson, helps in his own special way—snacking, napping, and being his adorable grumpy self.

On the right track?

Another exciting adventure for Free and Watson. Brandon is back in town and it increases the angst as to whether the latest murders are related to the crime family or not.

I know I said the last book was my favorite but THIS BOOK is my favorite. This series keeps heating up with more twists, more accusations and more danger. I really enjoyed trying to figure out which suspicious person tried to get away with murder in my favorite town of Estes Park. Fred's reputation is really starting to make her the person you do NOT want showing up at your house...or business. I loved quirky Watson and all of the crazy pets. There is so much I could say about this story but ...more

I would love to visit Estes Park on Halloween. Mildred brings the town to life and I can see how magical and fun it must be. But with fun comes murder and Fred will need her scooby gang to get things sorted out.

I love how Fred has grown throughout the series. She’s learned to trust and rely on her friends as sounding boards and partners to worry out the facts. Her romance with Leo is so sweet but I worry about the mysterious contents of an envelope she receives about Leo. And it’s always fun to

Twists and turns

This new installment in our view of the adventures of Fred and Watson, and their band of family and friends, brings us to Halloween in Estes Park. With a murder or two in town, and a grumpy corgi in tow, Fred has her hands full tackling the twists and turns that are thrown her way.

There are surprises in store, and they made this book a “must read” for me. If you’ve been reading this series, you will want to indulge in this newest. If you are new to the series, I recommend book

This is by far the best of the series, and I know that I say it with every installment. Fred, Leo, and Katie are back to their skills and their personality keeps us intrigued. The secondary characters are quirky and fit in well with the town. And that letter... OMG!!!

By far this probably my favorite out of the while series. It almost feels like a cliffhanger! You can't help but fall more and more in love with these characters after each book. As always I'm looking forward to the next installment.

What could be a better way to face the first chilly days of Autumn than the release of a new Cozy Corgi mystery? Started off the evening by opening my Kindle to revisit some of my favorite Estes Park characters.
With Fabulous Uncle Percival barging in to do a marvelous make-over on Fred before a not-casual dinner date with Leo, I knew I was home with familiar friends and in for a good read.
By the end of the fourth chapter, as I yelled “No!!” out loud, I realized that the readers’ imagination was

Watson falls out over Sherlock

Terrific. Back to the great books we have grown to expect although I do wish that she had opened the envelope about Leo. It's going to keep bugging me now. A plot that more twists and turns then a helter-skelter with murder as the lead. Schemes within schemes are revealed and as we get to the climax we have another murder and a barely averted one. The solution will come as a surprise to all, I got one culprit right but for the wrong crime and the other came like a

What a great read!! A perfectly executed murder mystery with an incredibly lovable heroine and the best sidekick ever. Watson is fierce and has so much personality for such a little dog.

I loved the suspense and sense of unease and danger that permeated the story. So many red herrings to sort out and never being quite certain who’s innocent or who poses a threat, with so many people not being what they seem at first glance. One of the things I loved most is that the story is framed in the

I have missed a couple of installments in this series, and this book makes me anxious to go back to see what I've missed. I'm happy to see Fred and Leo together, with their wonderful dynamic of love, respect, and patience. I adore Katie and the others who love Fred. I even like Susan, who is now much more tolerant when dealing with Fred. My favorite character, of course, is Watson the cranky corgi. He has more attitude than anyone in town!
The murder mystery this time takes place around

Cliffhanger Alert

This latest book is rather bittersweet. Why, you ask? I can't tell you because it will spoil the end. After 1 murder in town, all clues point to the Irons family. Of course, Fran can't help but look into it with Susan's blessing. But the more Fred looks the more she obssesses about them, and, the more she confuses herself. Finally, when she thinks she has it all figured out, something happens that makes her doubt herself. (It doesn't help that Branson pops up from time to time.)

Precarious pasta

Lies, suspense, intrigue all with a bit of romance. Precarious Pasta is a page turner. The plot twists and turns kept me guessing right up to the end! Fred and Watson are a great duo. And I just love her Scooby gang. Characters are fully developed, I can close my eyes and just picture them, along with the various businesses in their town. Please, keep the Cozy Corgi mysteries coming.

Fun series!

This is #14 in the cozy corgi mysteries series, and I found it just as enjoyable as the first 13. I own the whole series and love them. The plots are well drawn to keep you guessing, and the continuing character development and growth leaves you feeling that you really know these people. I highly recommend this series to all cozy readers.

Love this series

This is one of the most complex of the plots. It was so enjoyable to puzzle along with Fred, Leo, and Katie as the story unfolded. And grumpy Watson never disappoints.

Another great read!

I'm always excited to see another book released in this series. The only problem is I read them too fast and then have to wait for the next one. I love the characters and the descriptions of all the delicious sounding baked goodies make my mouth water.

Precarious Pasta

This is one of my favorite series!
Lots of action in this episode and more revelations about the Irons Family
The face slapping wife of an Italian restauranteur provides a bit of comic relief (of sorts)

After reading several twisted and complicated mysteries, it was a delight to kick back with Fred, Watson, Leo, and Katie in Estes Park. Abbott brought back Branson and he is lurking in the background most likely to be included in a future Cozy Corgi Mystery.

Ahhhh.. satisfied my Corgi craving for now!

Enjoyed Precarious Pasta immensely. I’m always surprised by who the murderer actually is. Christmas seems like a long time to wait for the next book. Thanks for all the happy hours I’ve spent reading your books!

Very Enjoyable

I picked this book to read because it said it was a Halloween story and it was almost that time of the year when I bought it. You will have a hard time figuring out who is the murderer! Very enjoyable book.

The latest adventure featuring Fred and the wonderful, grumpy Watson. Murder strikes again and they go into detective mode.There were so many twists and red herrings that I was confused. The unmasking of the guilty party was very tense. I loved it.

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
