Review

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite: ★★★★★ " . . . I really enjoyed Fur Ball Fever. Maureen Fisher wrote a book with a great plot, strong characters, a sense of humor and a good mystery. Fur Ball Fever is a perfect blend of good reading. I was emotionally attached to Grace and Nick. I laughed a lot at pot-smoking Auntie Beth, was tickled by Granddaddy Hiram and really didn't like the bad guys. Fur Ball Fever is warm and fuzzy, mean and tough, funny and I was hooked from the first word. I was sad when it was over; I didn't want it to end. I highly recommend this book to everyone. Great book to take along on your next vacation, read it on the plane, at the beach, just about anywhere."

"... I really enjoyed this book and the writing style of Maureen Fisher. This was a really funny book and I found myself laughing out loud at times (especially with how Aunt Beth was). 

I recommend this book to mystery readers out there, animal lovers, and readers who want a good laugh.  You'll definitely enjoy this funny, mystery book." - Book Lovin' Mamas

About the Author

I write sassy romance novels containing a slice of adventure and enough steamy sex to drive those who dare read them racing for a cold shower. Nothing makes me happier than taking readers into another world, a world full of romance, adventure, humor, fun, and excitement.

Born in Scotland, I emigrated to Canada at the tender age of seven. Years later as a University of Toronto graduate, I convinced the federal government to hire a Fine Arts specialist as a computer programmer. After three years of bits, bytes, and dumps (probably not what you're thinking), I graduated again, this time to full-time homemaker and mom, raising two wonderful sons. Plunging back into the business world, my second husband and I started a management consulting company. This marriage survived because my husband and I pledged never to work on the same project again. Ever.

After a century in the consulting world, I grew weary of wearing snappy power suits, squeezing into panty hose, and fighting rush hour traffic. I made a life-changing decision. I wanted to write books. Not dry, boring, technical treatises, but fresh, funny romantic suspense novels. How hard could it be? Thousands of authors did it every year.

Always an over-achiever, I quit my day job, attended a one-week seminar on writing a novel, read a couple of how-to books, joined the Ottawa chapter of RWA, and plunged right in. Learning can be a humbling experience, but I persevered. I slaved. I revised. I learned. After twenty-five rejections, countless workshops, six-re-writes, and two first-prize wins, my efforts finally paid off with the sale of my first book.

My husband and I live in Ottawa where I volunteer for an addiction family program, play bridge, bicycle, hike, square dance, read (naturally), and slave over my computer to improve my writing skills.

More About the Author

I write sassy romance with hot heroes, kick-ass heroines, tons of humor & an animal or two.

I'm a voracious reader, volunteer for an addiction family counseling program, bridge player, yoga enthusiast, seeker of personal and spiritual growth, pickleball enthusiast, and infrequent gourmet cook. My husband and I love to hike, bicycle, and travel. I've swum with sharks in the Galapagos, walked with Bushmen in the Serengeti, sampled lamb criadillas (don't ask) in Iguazu Falls, snorkeled on the Great Barrier Reef, descended into an Austrian salt mine, watched the sun rise over Machu Picchu, and bounced from Johannesburg to Cape Town on a bus called 'Marula'.

A quote about my books: "Maureen combines action, adventure, romance, mystery, and an often LOL sense of humor in her page-turning novels. They are the perfect additions to your electronic libraries, like da rum and da coconut in your pina coladas."

"Fur Ball Fever" is a fun, fast book. There is great dialogue, enough sexual tension to keep things things saucey, and characters who are loyal to their friends (be they human or canine). There is a lot to enjoy.

It is well written and skillfully plotted. Well done Maureen Fisher.

This book is for open minded readers who might enjoy a visit to some off the beaten path night club where things are different and so are the patrons (just so you know).

Grace and Nick's story is written with a light, breezy tone, perfect for it's genre. Full of snappy one-liners and just the right mix of introspection. The book is chocked full of quirky characters, adding charm to this romantic/crime romp. Lots of sizzling sex scenes too! Highly recommended.

This laugh-out-loud, sizzling hot story had me hooked right from the start and didn't let go until the end. The chemistry between Grace and Nick was amusing, hot, exasperating and thoroughly enjoyable. The dogs added so much fun and personality to the story that I can easily see dog lovers going for this book in a big way. The "investigation" kept me guessing and the situations Grace managed to land herself in kept the story interesting and engaging. My favorite character was dear, crazy Aunt Beth. What a hilarious addition to an already fun read! Maureen Fisher is a very talented writer and I'm glad to have found my way to her books!

I laughed out loud and so will you! This romantic comedy has a hero I adore. I love the way he talks and he looks like one of those men on the underwear boxes. I understood his reluctance to fall under the spell of this sassy heroine, who dares do anything, with or without him, which leads them into perilous waters. Perhaps this is not the place to confess my water fetish, but Nick looks great wet! Five stars all the way!

Grace Donnelly charges head-first into every situation. Which is why security specialist Nick Jackson left her--even though they were scorching hot together. No way is he going to watch her get herself killed.

But when she demands his help finding a missing dog, his protective instincts kick in, even though it puts his own undercover operation in jeopardy.

Fans of Stephanie Plum and dog lovers should love this one--it revolves around a dog show in an exclusive New Jersey community.

Grace and Nick are really cute together (he's a hot southern guy--yowsa!), and the mystery sucked me in. The supporting characters, especially the pot-smoking aunt, made me laugh.

Grace Donnelly needs help from former boyfriend Nick Jackson. He is the security director of Saltwater Estates and she needs to look at the surveillance tape from last night. It is a matter of life and death. Miss Coco Chanel is missing... not the fashion icon, but the winner of last year's Fur Ball. Miss Coco is a poodle that Grace is watching while her 90 year old owner is visiting her brother. Grace has only 6 days to find the dog before the next Fur Ball. It also seems that the second and third place dogs are missing too. Nick tells Grace to forget about it and not bother Milt at the security kiosk either.

Of course Grace does as she pleases. With the help of her pot smoking Auntie Beth, they devise a plan to watch the footage from the night before. That involves having Milt eat Auntie Beth's "special brownies". Hiding a large sleeping man still has me in stitches. Grace better be very careful or she could end up deep in dog poo.

Things to ponder: Will Nick get proof of the wrong doings of Reverend Oliver Hathaway? Will the dogs be found? When will Nick and Grace realize they are perfect together?

What a fun read. It is laugh out loud funny. The author has created a wacky cast of characters that are woven through the plot and keep you turning those pages. There are plenty of suspects to keep you trying to figure out whodunit. I hope the author is busy plotting and writing the next book. I can't wait to see what Grace will get up to next. So if you like your mystery with some cute pooches, then you should be reading Fur Ball Fever.

FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

What do you get when you cross a feisty heroine, a sexy hero, and a missing pooch? Fur Ball Fever! This was a great novel that I found hard to put down once I started reading. If you are looking for a funny and entertaining read, this is it!
