When Tobi Tobias decided to open her own ad agency, having to moonlight in a pet shop wasn’t part of her vision . . . of course, neither was murder.
As far as I'm concerned, Laura Bradford has created another wonderful series.
This is a fun, light cozy mystery, with a good set of characters that I want to learn more about, and see if there are any skeletons hanging in their closets! Well plotted and written, with a good entertaining story line.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. Published by Lyrical Underground/Kensington Books, and downloaded via NetGalley.
This book introduces us to Tobi Tobias who is trying to open her own advertising agency in the St. Louis area. She’s having just one pesky little problem – lack of clients. That’s why she is working at a friend’s pet shop part time so she can try to pay her bills. Naturally, she is ecstatic when a potential new client walks into her office. The Zander brothers own a closet company, and they are looking for a slogan and a campaign that will stick out since they are already at the bottom of any alphabetical listings. Tobi comes up with a real winner, and it catches the city by storm. It’s looking like a win for Zander Closet Company and Tobi’s agency as well.
Then the unthinkable happens. While shooting a closet for the brochure, a dead body falls out of a storage space. The media immediately connects it to Tobi’s slogan, and what looked like a win suddenly turns into a nightmare. Now, Tobi has to find the real killer to save her business. Can she do it?
As motives for an amateur getting involved in a murder investigation, this one is a winner. Naturally, as Tobi begins poking around, she finds out secrets and motives, but she also finds that the victim was a sympathetic man. The author walked a fine line in making us like the victim without making the book too sad, and I appreciated that. Naturally, things come together for a logical climax.
One thing you can count on in any of Laura’s books is a strong cast of characters who truly care for each other.Read more ›
With a lot of spirit, humour and bravery Tobi Tobias will face all the problems she finds to keep her business alive. While we accompany her in this dangerous mission we will meet a few interesting characters that I am sure will accompany Tobi in her future campaigns!
Tobi is a brave woman, something that sometimes I think I fail, she knows that her business is in danger and is ready to fight for it, something very admirable don't you think?
There's a skeleton on a closet, a bird without feathers, a maid in love with the boss and Tobi is just in the middle searching for the murderer! I really liked this book, it's a funny and interesting adventure where the characters are important like the plot, making it an easy read but at the same time engaging and intriguing!
This is the first book of Tobi Tobias series, but I am sure that if you start you will be hooked with her.
And if you are guessing, there's a little bit of love, just the first sparks, but I am sure in the next book we will see fire! ;)
Do you have any skeletons in your closet?

I requested an advanced readers copy of this book via NetGalley and was thrilled to receive it. The review is completely voluntary and the opinion is all mine. I always review books that I love. And I loved it so much I bought a personal copy!
Tobi is blessed with great friends and her Grandpa Stu, man I wish I had a Grandpa Stu.
Between her friends, grandpa Stu and some serious sleuthing skills, Toni solves the murder and loses a little more faith in the human race... don't worry, I think a love interest is on the horizon...
I can't wait for more stories with Tobi
*I was lucky enough to have received an early copy of this book and this is my honest opinion.
What did I like about this book? The characters, for starters. I connected with Tobi. I absolutely adore Grandpa Stu. Their relationship brought me thoughts of my grandpas and how much I miss them. Sam. Oh how I love this character! For once we have a teenager who acts like a teen without all the narcissist, petty or angry behavior I find in many books, (tv, movies, music and, sadly, real life), now. Sam loves his mom, is understanding of animals, is loyal to friends, is respectful, responsible and works. I know there are many, many Sams in real life but it is always the other teens who get noticed. I was thrilled to see such a caring teen included as a possibly returning character. And then the birds! They were awesome. This is my second book where birds played a part in the plot. I am a dog lover. My Shih Tzu, Zoey, is my reading partner. We tend to choose a lot of books with dogs in them, followed by ones with cats. We have been surprised by how fun birds can be. I hope Rudder continues to make appearances in the series. Beyond the characters, I really enjoyed the plot. It was interesting, fast paced and had us laughing together in a few parts. Aside from the murder to be solved there was also a possibility of romance, (or two, if Grandpa Stu hangs around). I had a good time reading this book. I was drawn in quickly and easily. Actually the only thing I missed was an update on Baboo. Zoey thinks that may come in the next book. I hope she is right.
There wasn't any graphic sex, violence, gore or language. No typos or editing issues that jumped out at us. I know some people are interested in knowing that before they choose a book. Zoey gives it two paws up and I give 5 stars
