This was my first paranormal cozy mystery and I really loved it. I adored the characters and setting. My favorite element of the book was “Boo” the very lovable and unique dog. I look forward to reading the rest of the series because I’m hooked!
A lottery winner uses her good fortune to save a local pet sanctuary, but when a body is discovered on the property, she just might be in the doghouse in this first book in a new, charming cozy mystery series from author Deborah Blake.
Kari Stuart’s life is going nowhere—until she unexpectedly wins the lottery. The twenty-nine-year-old instant multimillionaire is still mulling plans for her winnings when rescuing a bossy black kitten leads her to a semi-abandoned animal shelter. They need the cash—Kari needs a purpose.
But the dilapidated rescue is literally going to the dogs with a pending lawsuit, hard to adopt animals, and too much unwanted attention from the town’s dog warden. When the warden turns up dead outside the shelter’s dog kennels, Kari finds herself up a creek without a pooper-scooper.
With the help of some dedicated volunteers, a cute vet, and a kitten who mysteriously shows up just when she needs it, Kari must prove her innocence all while trying to save a dog on death row. Now she just needs to hope that her string of unexpected luck isn’t about to run out.

I am looking forward to the release of Furbidden Fatality by Deborah Blake on February 23, 2021. It is the first in the new series, A Catskills Pet Rescue Mystery.
I had so many plans for this website in 2020. Then COVID-19 happened to the world and I put this blog on hiatus. I actually put reading on the back burner completely last year which looking back, is sad. Reading could’ve helped me a great deal while getting through the chaos of the year.
But, at least reading now has gotten me out of a bad funk. I finally turned back to my love of reading and my love of cozy mystery novels. I didn’t realize just how cathartic books can be. They really can feed the soul.
So, I have a new found dedication to renew this blog. I want to keep finding wonderful cozy mysteries while sharing my finds with the book community, and meeting wonderful readers and authors along the way.
Thank you for stopping by. I wish you health and happiness during these trying times!
