The Icing on the Corpse by Liz Mugavero (A Pawsitively Organic Mystery #3)


Kristan "Stan" Connor is thrilled to be invited to the Groundhog Day festivities in quirky Frog Ledge, Connecticut. Her organic, home-baked pet treats are a big hit at the annual celebration, though an important guest is curiously absent . . .

When Helga Oliver, the town's elderly historian, is found crumpled in the basement of the Historical Museum, the close-knit town is devastated. But after some tenacious digging, Stan discovers Helga was pushed down the stairs--and that this picture-perfect New England town may hide some dark secrets . . .

Stan's dogged determination reveals Helga's ties to an unsolved death in 1948 . . . but how does that connect to Adrian Fox, who's just arrived in town to shoot an episode of Celebrity Ghost Hunters? Stan is going to have to be very careful in chasing down the killer--if she wants to live to see another winter . .

    4 STARS

    This is a cute animal lover mystery.  There is a dog wedding  in this cozy mystery.  There is a death and it might be connected to a murder  in 1948 that was never solved.  Lots of drama, relationships, and humor.  It is also a clean read.

    Kristan "Stan" Connor is single and she makes pet treats and meals as a business. She has been dating Jake.  She has 2 dogs and 1 cat and finds a cat on her door step with a note on her collar asking for a home.

    There is a celebration on the green on ground hog day when the local historian can't be found.  She has fallen down the stairs at the museum.  Some thing it might be murder.

    Adrian Fox star of Celebrity Ghost Hunters comes to do a episode on the old library.  A boxer died in the basement in 1948.  The town is in a uproar half wants to stop the filming others want it.  Kristan is a big fan of the show.

    Kristan has also been asked to help a few people in town.  She has  trouble saying no.  She is also asked to plan a dog wedding on Valentines day.  It sounds cute and fun to dress up and make special cake and treats.

    The setting is Frog Ledge, Connecticut.  A small town that is a farming community.

    I have liked this series.  It makes you smile while reading it.  I hope there is more of this series.

    I was given this ebook from Net Galley and Kensington Books .  In return I agreed to give a honest review of The Icing on the Corpse.
