There’s a new dog groomer in Cottonwood Springs, and Brigid’s delighted! No more taking her dogs, Jett and Lucky, to an out-of-town groomer.
But there are a few problems, like broken statues, dug-up plants, and a very bad word written on a window.
Joss, the owner of Happy Paws Grooming, thinks it’s probably just the work of neighborhood kids, and doesn’t want to pursue it. But what if it isn’t? What if someone has more sinister plans in store for the groomer?
Brigid becomes concerned, not only for the safety of the groomer, but also for the neighbors. Because, the more she and Sheriff Davis discover, the more certain they are that someone intends to seriously harm the groomer.
During their investigation, they uncover family feuds, revenge for a dog being too friendly, and a person seriously depressed from the death of her mother.
Then, when Brigid plans a baby shower for her good friend, Missy, and the mother-to-be goes into labor during it, life becomes a little more hectic than she’d planned!
If you like to feel good at the end of a book, and like a good cozy mystery with dogs and recipes, this one’s for you.
This is the 16th book in the Cottonwood Springs Cozy Mystery Series, by a USA Today best-selling author.
