Not a Creature was Purring - Krista Davis

Hello my friends,

I discovered this series March 8, 2017 and flew through the first 5 (will review in new year) the 6th book in the series "Not a Creature was Purring" was worth the wait.

Publication Date:  November 7, 2017 
Paperback 304 pages
Genre - Cozy Mystery

Santa Claws is coming to town and checking his list for a murderer—as the New York Times bestselling Paws & Claws Mysteries continue…

Inn owner Holly Miller finds it ruff staying cheerful over the holidays when the dead body of a beloved businessman turns up in the pet-friendly town of Wagtail, Virginia.

Inspired by her German heritage, Holly’s grandmother has arranged for Wagtail to have a Christkindl Market packed with goodies and decorations for the howliday tourists. But Holly’s mood takes an unseasonable turn when she learns that her old flame and childhood friend Holmes Richardson has brought his fiancĂ©e home—and she’ll be staying at the Sugar Maple Inn…

A love triangle becomes the last thing on Holly’s mind when her Jack Russell Trixie’s nose for trouble leads her to the corpse of a pet clothing tycoon. Now Holly and her dedicated detectives—Trixie and Twinkletoes the cat—must sniff out the killer to keep Christmas from going to the dogs…

Delicious recipes for owners and pets included!

Read this book in one sitting, I absolutely love this series. The characters are starting to feel like old friends and the new characters that were guests were quite like the people I met on holidays, crazy, and demanding but without the murders . Having had a Calico and Samoyed as a child, it reminds me of them and I love the antics that Trixie and Twinkletoes get up to in the guests rooms, and around the hotel.  You know that Krista must have furbabies to draw from and indeed she does.  I never know who committed the murders until the end, the food always makes me hungry - would love to vacation in a place where you and your dog are welcome everywhere.  Wagtail is definitely somewhere I would love to live or visit.

My Rating

KRISTA DAVIS is the New York Times bestselling author of the Paws & Claws Mysteries, including Mission Impawsible, Murder Most Howl, The Ghost and Mrs. Mewer, and Murder, She Barked, as well as the Domestic Diva Mysteries, including The Diva Serves High Tea, The Diva Steals a Chocolate Kiss, and The Diva Wraps It Up. She lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with a brood of cats and dogs, including a snoopy Jack Russell terrier and a nosy calico cat. Her friends and family complain about being guinea pigs for her recipes, but she notices that they keep coming back for more.
