Great Escapes Tour: Murder Most Finicky by Liz Mugavero

29 Feb


FTC Disclosure:  I received a free advance net galley of this book in exchange for an honest review.

My Thoughts:  I first discovered this series in March of 2015 when I was lucky enough to be a part of the Great Escapes Tour for The Icing on the Corpse.  I had never read any of Liz’ books before. Fortunately, I had an opportunity to read the first two in the series at the same time and I was hooked. Murder Most Finicky is just further proof that the Pawsitvely Organic series should be a permanent fixture on the list of books I always read.

I love Stan. She is such a no-nonsense character. I do feel a bit sorry for her because does keep coming across dead bodies. But that just makes for more great reads.

Murder Most Finicky is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the end. The mystery is well plotted and will keep you engaged througought. It was interesting to learn a little more about Stan’s sister. She’s not exactly one of my favorite characters, but you have to love the way Stan steps in to be a good sister any way.

Taking the story to Newport, RI provided a nice little change, but I can’t wait to read about Stan back in Frog Ledge. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

If you would like to do a little home baking for your four legged family members, be sure to check out the pet friendly recipes included at the end.

Be sure to check out the other stops on the tour (schedule listed below) and visit the Great Escapes Tour Page for a chance to win a print copy of Murder Most Finicky.

I really enjoyed this book it had so much adventure, lots of questions and kept me thoroughly entertained.

The action started right from the very first page and continued with the collection of quirky characters that added to the appeal of the book.
~Cinnamon and Sugar and A Little Bit of Murder

This mystery is a total page turner, is so full of twists, unexpected events, disappearances.

There is a lot going on including a trip to NYC, a catnapping, a surprise investor for Stan’s patisserie, some infidelity, and of courses a lot of food.

…a wonderful cozy mystery that is fast paced and totally engages the reader. The plot is pretty solid and very unique.

The plot takes several turns as the secrets unfold, making it a fast-paced read. I believe that animal lovers and cozy mystery fans will enjoy this novel.

The dog days of summer have arrived in the small town of Frog Ledge, Connecticut, and business is booming for Kristan “Stan” Connor. Her Pawsitively Organic pet food has even caught the attention of celebrity pastry chef Sheldon Allyn, who helps Stan open a fancy pet pastry shop in Frog Ledge. A partnership is born, and Sheldon invites Stan to Newport, Rhode Island, for an appreciation weekend he’s hosting for all his independent chefs. But the gourmet getaway turns sour when one of the chefs turns up dead, and a second one goes missing…

As Stan tries to figure out who had a recipe for murder, the pool of suspects expands. And if she can’t sniff out the culprit soon, this killer may just serve up a second helping of murder…

About This Author

Liz Mugavero has been writing stories since she could hold a pen. Before that, she would tell them to anyone who would listen (not many at the time). After deciding early on she would write books for a living, she practiced by writing bad, angst-filled poems, short stories and even a storyline for a soap opera–all by age 15. She never wavered from her goals despite all the usual questions including, “So are you going to be an English teacher with that degree in English?” or, “That writing thing sounds nice, but how are you REALLY going to make a living?”

She went on to get a master’s in writing and publishing and spent time in journalism, PR, and presently, corporate communications. And she’s confident this writing thing IS the way to make a living.

Aside from writing, she loves animals (has a houseful), the beach, reading other writers’ masterpieces and Starbucks coffee.
