contemptuous of traditional veterinarians and recommends naturopathic veterinarians instead, even if the one in the book turns
to be pretty nasty, and bills her $250 for just taking a history without actually seeing her cat. That vet had said the cost for everything would be $175. Then Stan calls the naturopathic vet for someone else's dog and just knows that the concoction from the vet's vials saved the dog, when all he had in the first place was illness from eating a bunch of rotten food. (They did take the dog to a real veterinarian, who hospitalized the dog for a day or so, but they were given no credit for helping the dog.) Wolves often eat rotten food without any long term side effects, so one would assume dogs are similar. Stan is also into organic, organic, organic. I did try her cheese treat recipe for cats. This is made from organic spelt flour, organic polenta, 2 kinds of cheeses, organic Greek yogurt and uses organic cooking spray. None of these ingredients are natural for cats. My cat sensed that, and would have nothing to do with the treats. On the other hand, I thought they were pretty good and ate them myself. I suppose a dog would have eaten them, but then dogs will eat almost anything. She made dog treats and charged $2.00 for one little treat. Who is going to pay that when the dog snarfs it down in seconds, and dog treats at stores are fractions of the cost of $2.00? She also constantly says that store animal food and treats come from China. A lot are made in the US and Canada. It is easy to avoid products from China.
Unemployed, Public Relations Manager, Kristan "Stan" Connor, is beginning a new life. She, instinctually, bought a lovely home in Frog Ledge, Connecticut. Stan, has a kitty, Nutty, whom she bakes organic treats and food for. Her treats are 'miracles', at least in the neighboring pets minds and tastes. The neighbors are friendly, nosy, and quirky. I loved them at once!
Finding herself in the middle of a dispute of homoeopathic vs traditional veterinary medicine, Stan takes her kitty to the only Vet in town, and finds her 'dead' on the floor. Oh boy, now Stan is the new murder suspect in town.
We follow Stan as she endeavours to find the real killer, endear herself in the community, and create a future for herself.
I loved this book. Also, the recipes at the ending I've already shared with my friends who are gourmet dog food fanciers. They sound wonderful! I will eagerly await Ms. Mugavero's next novel in this series.
When Stan loses her position at a big company, she decides to make a change and head to Frog Ledge. If Stan thought life in the big city was rough, she had no idea what life in her quaint new town would be like.
When she finds the body of the local vet, all eyes turn to Stan and she feels like everyone is targeting her as a murderer.
When things heat up, Stan defends herself and hopes she doesn't regret the decisions she has made.
This book is about a women named Stan. She got fired from her PR job and bought a Victorian house in a small town, Frog Ledge, in Connecticut. Stan meets all sorts of interesting folks that live in Frog Ledge. She has a boyfriend named Richard, who was strongly against her moving, a best friend named Nikki, who doesn't like Richard and has her own pet rescue. Oh and we can't forget about her cat, Nutty, who she makes special homemade food and treats for. Stan, being the newbie in town, wants to be friendly with everyone, and finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when the local vet was murdered. That is how it starts! She is the person of interest with the murder and a few other incidents that happen later on. She wants to prove her innocents and starts to investigate on her own.
I found this book enjoyable because I could feel Stan's worry, fear, frustrations, and happiness! Liz Mugavero did a great on that! I would recommend this book to any one just looking for something easy to read. I look forward to her next book!
