Welcome to Adlebury where village life can be downright deadly.
Veterinarian Petronella Knight seems to have it all. A job she loves, good friends, and patients who adore her. But when she gets into an argument with dog breeder Gladys Harrington, and she finds the woman dead, she also finds herself accused of murder.
Ella will need all her friends, including the new and very handsome American policeman, and all her sharpest sleuthing skills to figure out who murdered the dog breeder before another dead body pops up.
Paws for Murder contains one enthusiastic amateur detective with a penchant for rescuing animals, a guard duck called George, a large amount of homemade gooseberry wine, and a very confused American who has never met an English village quite like this one.
You’d be Barking Mad to pass this one by.

This was so much fun. A mix of British gentle mysteries and American cozy mystery reads.
Garrett has had enough of his job as a US detective. He is looking forward to a quiet post and unadventurous lifestyle taking care of his grandmother in a small English village.
Before he can introduce himself he is knee deep in a murder case.

Told from alternating points of view, both under stress, we follow along as Garrett meets Petronella, the local vet, albeit a young woman who is still trying to prove herself to the older residents who have watched her grow up. Whether at a murder scene or at a dog show brawl, Petronella seems to be in the thick of the action.

Will Garrett get to enjoy his dreamed of quieter lifestyle or will life continue to be unpredictable as he gets to know his new neighbors better, we will have to wait until the next book to find out.
This first of what I hope is a rolicking series, is very exciting.

About Scarlett English

Scarlett English is a crazy cat lady who likes solving mysteries. Or actually, make that a dog lady. Much to her chagrin, the police have never sought to consult her, which is why there seems to be so much unsolved crime. Especially—surprisingly enough—in the small English village where she lives. So, armed with curiosity, a penchant for taking in strays, a love of homemade wine and a good gossip, she puts her detecting talents to good use murdering her imaginary friends and neighbors and solving the cases one story at a time.
