Please enjoy reading this first cozy which I look forward to becoming a great series.
Olivia Rickard is a dog walker in Lexingburg, has a wonderful boyfriend, Andrew Patterson, who she thinks will propose to her soon, loves her sister, Janelle, and doesn’t like change. Janelle wants to purchase the brownstone where she operates her bakery, Happy Endings, but can’t swing a loan by herself and would like Olivia to help her and use the upstairs as an office for her dog walking business. Franklin Kennedy, Janelle’s current landlord, has only made minimal repairs and the building is in need of lots of TLC. While walking dogs with Andrew one morning, Olivia saw Jump Start Coffee, the food truck Yvette Dunn rented from Franklin, was still in its early morning location and decided to stop for some much needed coffee but instead of caffeine, she discovers Yvette lifelessly lying on the floor soaked in coffee and Olivia thinks it was murder. Nicholas ‘Nick’ Limperos is a good sheriff but doesn’t have much experience with murders and Olivia, who loves mysteries, really wants to help him. After viewing surveillance camera feeds, Nick brings Janelle in for questioning. Unfortunately, she and Yvette, who were arguing outside, went into the food truck and only Janelle came out. Yvette sold baked goods from Happy Endings and Janelle confronted her because she wanted her to stop selling items that weren’t fresh but insists she didn’t kill her. Olivia and Andrew find evidence that takes Janelle off the suspect list but even though Andrew want her to leave the investigation to the professionals, she can’t control her impulses.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Barking Up the Wrong Bakery is an extremely cute novel. Olivia’s extreme response to anything that looks like it means “commitment” is at times so profoundly over the top it is humorous. At other times it is simply annoying. I liked the other characters more, even the self-centered toupee wearing mayor who goes out of his way to try to get the resident psychic’s attention - to the point of adopting an ancient basset hound.
As pet cozies go, Barking Up the Wrong Bakery is pretty solid. It isn’t particularly innovative, but it is a cute and entertaining with a touch of romance.
4 / 5
