When Jules and her special best bud, Bun the rabbit, discover a dead body and Fur Bridge Farm is faced with an intruder determined to ‘free’ the rabbits they find themselves in the middle of an investigation.
I took a little while to really get into the story despite the interesting setting but then the action kicked in and my attention was caught. The mystery is two-fold as we have to figure out who is the murderer, who is the intruder and how they are related. We meet several potential culprits along the way, including Bun’s absolutely awful former owner, and have to weed through the red herrings and real clues. I do wish a more conclusive trail was laid to the real killer. Some very key info is withheld that makes it impossible to figure out motives. Yet, we do get a nice juicy trail to the who of the matter.
We also meet some fun characters along the way. Meredith is the sheriff’s delightful wife who is addicted to shopping for yarn and keeping her husband in check! Then there’s the mysterious Andrew who unexpectedly shows up and brings a conundrum of his own. Bun and Jules, despite never having solved a crime before, are very cocky about their abilities. That contrasts against a caring sheriff who also comes off a bit brusque with his repetitive warnings that they stay out of his investigation.
There’s a solid backstory laid out in this first in the series book, providing a lot of potential for future stories set in the picturesque New Hampshire town of Windermere.
Left Fur Dead is a cute cozy mystery featuring even cuter rabbits as part of the narrative and one special bunny as a lead detective.
The First Jules and Bun Mystery
Juliette Bridge, better known as Jules, is the owner of Fur Bridge Farm. From providing rehabilitation to rabbits that have been abused to bringing bunnies as entertainment to children's parties, Jules deals in all things rabbit. Her sidekick is Bun, a black-and-white rabbit who has the ability to communicate telepathically with her. After stumbling across a dead body the pair find themselves victims. Someone has been entering the barn and attempting to release the rabbits. The break-ins must be connected to the murder. But how? Not content to leave matters to the police Jules and Bun begin their own investigation. But will they stir up even more trouble?
Never give up and don't make yourself a victim. These are the two resounding messages found in the first Jules and Bun Mystery. After being left for dead after being run off the road years prior, Jules recovered with the help of rabbits and has vowed to stand up for herself and her friends no matter what. This attitude, while generally commendable, leads her to sometimes be abrupt and act rashly. Jules is refreshing in that she is so independent with a take charge attitude. By far my favorite character is Bun. This is a rabbit with an attitude. He's funny and forthright, smart and protective.
LEFT FUR DEAD has a quaint premise. A rabbit with telepathic powers is certainly unique in the mystery scene and I appreciate how proper care for rabbits is emphasized. While it fit that Bun's speech patterns were slightly off kilter, the whole book had an odd use of phrasing and word choice that stopped the flow and made the pacing someone erratic.
Unfortunately, the author hit on a major pet peeve of mine. At the end of the story the villain, who had a very good motive, and had been behaving rationally, suddenly became a "maniac" with an "evil" laugh. The author could have gotten the story exactly where she needed with the same villain, motive, and even final exciting scene, without creating yet another crazed killer.
Bolstered by a charming rabbit LEFT FUR DEAD provides a unique mystery. With room to grow the first Jules and Bun Mystery is a promising start to a new series.
