My Rating: 4 Stars
This was the first book I read from Ms Liz Mugavero and the A Pawsitively Organic Mystery series and this fast-paced cosy-mystery was a joy to read.
Stan Connor lives a peaceful life with her handsome boyfriend Jake Mcgee, ready to open her Pawsitively Organic Pet Patisserie and Bakery when her life is turned upside down. Not only she is forced to attend her mother's engagement party with the Mayor Tony Falco, she receives the unexpected visit of her sister Caitlyn and her daughter Eva who plan to stay for a while. As all of this wasn't enough, an old co-worker is found dead and Stan's ex is accused of the crime. Now it's up to Stan to solve the murder and make things right.
There are several aspects I enjoyed in this story. The first being the wonderful connections and relationships that Stan has with her family and friends. It serves as a reminder that even when life gets crazy, we have people that we can truly count on to have our backs and to help us in a moment of need. The second thing is Stan herself. I found myself smiling over her character, she's funny, compassionate and truly sees the good in people. Plus, her furry friends help too.
The plot is very nice and engaging and the story is fast-paced. There is nothing that I enjoy more than a murder plot that comes perfectly together in the end with all the questions answered and all the loose ends tied. Even though I caught up to the murderer before the final chapter, I still liked to discover the motivation behind it. Definitely didn't disappoint.
Looking for a cosy-mystery? Take this one!
