Paws of Death (A Canine Confections Mystery)
3rd in Series
Setting – Palm Beach, Florida
Happy Press (January 20, 2022)
Paperback : 264 pages
Two murders on the same strip of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach means dog bakery owner Samantha Armstrong and her fellow shopkeepers have reached their quota of bad stuff. Right?
They should be so lucky…
Samantha is thrilled that life in her new hometown has finally settled into a fun, peaceful rhythm. Canine Confections’ business is on the upswing, and her days are filled with jogs on the beach with her pooch Sweet Pea, cozy time with Aunt Mary on her aunt’s estate, and yummy treats at her upscale dog bakery. But things are not peaceful for long when Donna from the local gossip magazine, Pulse on Palm Beach, winds up dead at Samantha’s first foray into catering a millionaire dog’s birthday party.
Once again, Samantha finds herself smack dab in the middle of the investigation. But this time, it’s another reporter from Pulse that’s making her center-stage. With the aid of her precious Sweet Pea, Samantha pads around the splashy Worth Avenue sniffing out clues. Unfortunately, the more she searches, the more suspects she finds. And it doesn’t help that Angelina from Mystic Dreams has hired a psychic who warns that trouble in Palm Beach isn’t about to end anytime soon.
Includes an original recipe from the world-famous Three Dog Bakery!
Like a bad penny that never fails to show no matter how much you wish for a silver dollar, Dick appeared across the street
Two occasions of dipping my toes back into the dating pool after my old boyfriend broke my heart back in Sun Haven, and I was already wanting to go full-on up to my ankles with this guy.
“Snowball, you’re going to have to play nice if you want to live here,” I said, hearing the empty threat in my words and knowing there was zero chance we would ever give the cat away just because we had a learning curve on how to make this work.
Now that I didn’t have to worry as much about my income stream, I could think about other things…sweeter things…like Peanut Butter Clusters and PupCakes
The furry girl and I were whizzing along Ocean Avenue for another day of work in paradise.
“It’s not my fault you’re a magnet for murder.”
Aunt Mary in spandex was one thing. Trumble in spandex was a good reason to wash my eyes out with battery acid.
A few months ago, when I lived in Sun Haven, I didn’t run into a murderer once, far as I know. This town was rife with them
Guest Post: Adding a Cat to my Dog Bakery Book Series
No doubt about it. People love cats. When all I talked about in my books and social media were dogs, there were more than one kind person who reminded me that CATS are loveable too. And you know what? They are absolutely right. I grew up with dogs and honestly, when cats do that thing where they show you their belly and stick their paws out, I don’t know if they want me to play or rub their belly. Turns out, you never know. So I’ve gotten swatted more than once.
But it’s okay, I’ve decided. Cats are people too. Ummmm…. I mean, cats are right up there on the important list with dogs…and with humans…and every other living creature.
In fact, one shows up in Book 2 in my Canine Confections series. The dog in the series, Sweet Pea, is a little afraid. Snowball, the white cat, has appeared to take over the mansion. It’s a good thing Sweet Pea has her cozy cottage with Samantha her mom to go home to at night.
But as far as turning the Canine Confections Dog Bakery into a dog AND cat bakery? I’m thinking there might be more than ONE scenario where that can terribly, terribly wrong. Mostly, I might lose out on the sweet treats.
Anyhow, thanks for letting me drop by. Let me know your thoughts on cats, dogs and any other animal you care to discuss.
