A Twist in the Tail by Leighann Dobbs

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing "A Twist in the Tail" an Oyster Cove Guesthouse Mystery by Leighann Dobbs.  I have enjoyed Ms. Dobbs Mystic Notch series, Blackmoore Sisters Mysteries and Lexi Baker Mysteries so was happy to see there was a new series to enjoy.

Print Length: 236 pages

Publisher: Bookouture (May 16 2019)

Genre: Cozy Mystery


‘Talk about inconvenient. Not only did I have a dilapidated mansion and no money to repair it with, two cats I had no idea how to care for and a room full of cranky guests waiting for their breakfast, I also had a dead body on my hands.’

Josie Waters has to admit she may have acted a bit hastily when she agreed to purchase the Oyster Cove Guesthouse – a charmingly gabled Victorian mansion on the breathtaking Maine coast – from elderly family friend Millie Sullivan. But Josie was desperate to flee Ohio and in particular her ex-husband, a chef who loved his job so much he left her for it. And anyway, how hard can running a guesthouse be?

The truth is, Oyster Cove Guesthouse is a mouldering money pit with falling-in roof and a cohort of regular guests who are as mischievous as a litter of kittens. And Millie keeps dropping by to dispense unasked-for advice. And Josie might have made a mistake in promising to adopt Oyster Cove’s two resident cats Nero and Marlowe, and treat them in the manner to which they’ve become accustomed. Josie has never had a cat before… let alone two feisty felines who think they own the place.

Ok, it’s not going well. At least it can’t get any worse, Josie thinks. Until her first guest ends up dead.




“A Twist in the Tail” by Leighann Dobbs is a great start to
a new series and is everything you want in a cozy.  I have been a fan of this author for years
when I read her Mystic Notch books which also featured cats!

The protagonist Josie is a likable main character, with quirky supporting characters Millie, her mother and Nero & Marlowe.  I wasn’t sure if I liked the book at first but a few chapters in I got use to how it is written from different prospective, Josie’s, cats etc.  Cats having conversations who wouldn’t love that.  

There were twists and turns and a well-paced story.   I enjoyed this book and recommend to my friends and any fan of Leighann Dobbs.
