A Biscuit, a Casket by Liz Mugavero (Pawsitively Organic Mysteries #2)


The small town of Frog Ledge, Connecticut, has wholeheartedly embraced Kristan "Stan" Connor's new business--preparing quality organic treats for dogs and cats. On a healthy diet, the animals may live longer. . .but one local farmer won't be so lucky.
As Halloween approaches, Stan is asked to cater a doggie costume party hosted by the Happy Cow Dairy Farm. Part of a local co-op, Happy Cow specializes in organic dairy products, and farmers Hal and Emmalee Hoffman have started opening up the farm for parties, offering a "haunted" corn maze as an added attraction.

When Hal's lifeless body is found in the maze, the police at first suspect his wife, but Stan soon learns the dairy farmer had plenty of enemies--from bitter family members to shady business associates. If Stan can't extract a kernel of truth from the labyrinth of lies, she may be the next one to buy the farm.

  • My review: A Biscuit, a Casket by Liz Mugavero   (Pawsitively Organic Mysteries #2)

    4 stars
    This is book 2 in Pawsitively Oranic mysteries.  I have not read the first and I plan to read the next book in the series this week.

    This is a cute animal lovers mystery.  Animals are everywhere and spoiled. I admit I have dressed up my dogs in costumes and sweaters.  But having a birthday party and feeding homemade meals and treats. Sorry not for my pets.

    The mystery was pretty good.  Had some twists I did not see coming and some I did. Lots of small town community.  Lots of drama and action.  Also a clean read at least in language but not for clothes.

    Kristan "Stan" Connor's business is healthy organic meals and treats for cats and dogs.  She is just starting it and doing well so far.  She is still pretty new to Frog Ledge, Connecticut.  Stan is single. She has two dogs and a cat.

    While at a neighbor farm is having a corn maze and setting up for a birthday party for some dogs. people discover the owner Hal Hoffman dead in it.  Hal had been stabbed with a farm tool in the chest.

    Stan gets volunteered to help the widow with the farm books and office.  Hal and  Emmalee Hoffman
    have 4 children and run a farm co-op and dairy.  Stan also can't help but try and figure out who killed Hal and why.

    I liked reading A Biscuit, a Casket.  Sometimes it was over the top, but fun.

    I was given this ebook to read by Net Galley and Kensington Books.  In return I agreed to give a honest review of A Biscuit, A Casket.
