Fun Cozy Mystery! 8 Jan. 2014
By Yvonne Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
After breaking up with her boyfriend, Izzy McHale goes home to Merryville, Minnesota where she opens a new store, Trendy Tails Pet Boutique. Along with her best friend, Rena, Izzy hopes her shop will be a huge success. Rena will make the tasty treats like pupcakes and kitty canapés, while Izzy designs canine and feline outfits. All is well until a local activist, Sherry Harper, shows up to protest.

Sherry is a trust-fund baby carrying a guinea pig in a sling like a baby. Sherry is very much opposed to dressing animals in clothes. Izzy’s argument is that most people buy animal clothes from big market places that get their shipments overseas. Izzy creates the outfits herself and offers a local non-toxic alternative. Sherry isn’t buying it.

As everyone celebrates the grand opening of Trendy Tails Pet Boutique, Sherry protests and eventually is found dead in the alley outside. The prime suspect is Rena. Izzy doesn’t intend to let her best friend go down for this murder. Rena hires a local attorney who happens to be a guy who loved Izzy when they were teens. Izzy blew him off then, but now she teams up with him to get Rena cleared of all charges. Of course, Sean and Izzy grow closer and old sparks start to rekindle, but their main concern is Rena and finding out who really killed Sherry. Much to their surprise, there is quite a long list of potential suspects.

The “A Pet Boutique Mystery” series gets off to a great start with this one. Dogs, cats, ferrets and even guinea pigs take center stage in this one. I was taken in on the first page as they discussed dressing animals in clothes. Not something I do, but it made for an interesting start to the story.

Izzy is a great character and I’m looking forward to getting to know her better. Sean, Rena…they are all fun characters, not to mention that Izzy has an entire family of fun characters.

I enjoyed the mix of mystery with romance in this one and can’t wait to see what happens with Izzy and Sean’s potential relationship. I didn’t guess who the killer was until the last chapter, so that’s a good thing. The mystery weaved through the entire book to keep readers guessing until the end. Annie Knox did a great job of creating a fun mystery with great character. The next book isn’t out until September, but I’ll be looking for it. Great start to a fun series!

Smarter than most! 9 Jan. 2014
By Oregonian - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Three things (at least) set this cozy mystery apart from the (very few) others I've tried. First, the main character, Izzy, teams up with a lawyer to solve the crime, rather than running around doing really stupid things that no reader willingly suspends belief to enjoy. Second, the animals are realistically portrayed. Annie Knox knows animal behaviors and resists anthropomorphizing them into the solvers of mysteries. Third, Annie Knox is literate! Her lively use of language is a pleasure to read. Step up to fine writing and a fine read.

Sure to be a big hit! 10 Jan. 2014

Loved loved this book!

This first in a brand new series is sure to be a hit! Annie takes us to Merryville, Minnasota where we meet Izzy Mchale and her friend Rena. Izzy makes outfits for animals and Rena makes tasty treats,for their boutique, Trendy Tails.

As Izzy and her friends are getting ready for the animal costume event a murder takes place and Sherry is killed. Sherry is one of their friends that had a run in with Rena the day before she is killed. Which leaves Rena as a main suspect. Izzy will do everything she can to clear Rena and get back to business at hand.

The characters you will meet in this book are strong, vibrant ones and you will find yourself there in Merryville helping to solve the case!

This was such a fantastic read! I couldn't put it down.

Annie is great at her craft and you can see it in this book!

WOW! This was one of the best cozy mysteries I've ever read!! If you love pets and mysteries, this is the purrfect read for you!! Izzy McHale is excited about the grand opening of her Trendy Tails Pet Boutique where she designs and sells canine couture and feline fashions. Her best friend, Rena, operates the 'barkery' inside the shop, making pupcakes, kitty canapés, and all things delicious for your spoiled fur-babies! The town of Merryville, Minnesota is a charming place for Izzy's new business. Unfortunately, a local activist, Sherry Harper, is picketing the event, and Izzy shockingly finds her dead body in the back alley after the party. Suspicion is cast on Rena, but with no solid evidence, Officer Jack Collins can't arrest her. Sherry's guinea pig, Ghandi, is missing, and so is her cell phone. With an amazing cast of possible suspects, Izzy and her friends put on their thinking caps and start to follow up on every lead they can find related to Sherry's past. Who had motive to kill her?

Annie Knox does a riveting job in weaving together all the threads of deceit in "Paws for Murder." The story is fast-paced, it completely holds your attention, all the characters are interesting and well-developed, and you'll find it hard to put down once you start reading!!! 5 STARS!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review.
