Doggone Deadly by Deborah Blake

Hello my cozy friends,

Today I am reviewing "Doggone Deadly” the 2nd instalment in Catskill Pet Rescue Mystery series by Deborah Blake set in the Catskill town of Lakeview.  What a great series!

Kari Stuart is roped into helping out at a dog show—but soon finds she’s bitten off more than she can chew when her best friend is framed for murder in this new Catskills Pet Rescue Mystery.

When the woman running the big regional dog show calls out sick, dog groomer Suz Holden is asked to take over. But it’s too much for her to handle by herself— considering the president of the kennel club, Olivia Weiner, criticizes her at every turn—so she calls in her best friend, Kari Stuart, for help.
A long, stressful day goes from bad to worse when a local breeder is found dead, and the murder weapon seems to incriminate Suz. 

While Kari knows her friend isn’t guilty, the police aren’t so sure, especially after a second murder points to Suz again. But trying to run a dog show and investigate a murder at the same time is like herding cats, and Kari will have to rely on the rest of the Serenity Sanctuary staff to keep things running smoothly while she—and her beloved and clever kitten, Queenie—sniff out the truth.
I have read other books by Deborah Blake and just had to try this series. I'm very glad that I did. The book was well-written with wonderful characters, some of  them you'll like a lot (Kari and Suz) and others you won't like at all!
I love Queenie the black kitten especially as she chose Kari to be her mum not the other way around.  It was that way for me when I walked into the shelter 21 yrs ago with Abigail.

The mystery is interesting and well plotted, I kept guessing and second-guessing myself on whodunnit right to the very end.   
I'm really looking forwards  to the next book Claws for Suspicion available May 2022.

I recommend this book to all my cozy lover friends.
