This book is a quick read filled with adventure! Loved it! I love how the author describes the locations her characters are in. Living in Vegas I found myself trying to guess where I might find Dr. Dailee. Can't wait to read the next mystery!Las Vegas Chew Toy

Did you know that we just completed "Read an Ebook Week"? Did you read one? I did--and thoroughly enjoyed it! Laura Alton's new cozy mystery, Las Vegas Chew Toy, was not only suspenseful but it was also fun to read.

Kayla is a local veterinarian who not only has a practice, but also provides support for the local police when needed, and has recently taken additional training to qualify as an animal behavioral expert. What that means, in this mystery, is that she somehow managed to be in the right place at the right time, or should I say, the wrong place, because she also became obsessed with proving the innocence of, and saving Amy!

Amy is the accused in the case of not one, but two murders!

Perhaps I should say that Amy is a beautiful puma, who was saved when she was young, even though she lost one of her forelegs, and was provided a loving home with, supposedly, her first victim.

In fact, Kayla and the police really didn't believe Amy was involved, even though those who had been killed had claw marks at their throats.

But figuring out who did the murders was not so easy. For an animal activist had helped Amy escape, yet she was the one who was later killed in the same manner! And local people really weren't concerned whether or not she was guilty--only that she was on the loose and could possibly be dangerous...

Sure, there were other people involved--local police Detective Kelly as well as the Animal Control Director, who both just happened to be handsome men who were interested in getting to know Kayla better. Somehow that resulted in their helping her rather than the other way around! Why is it women tend to think they can solve a problem, but they don't take the time to worry about their own safety?

Laura Alton has written a fast paced, intriguing mystery plot. The characters were fun and interesting. I enjoyed the mystery story and the way the author weaves in her background as a veterinarian. Las Vegas Chew Toy was a fast read, and an enjoyable one. If you like mystery with more than a little romance, you'll enjoy this new author and her delightful characters.
