"The tension makes for a fast moving narrative that, in true cozy style, is kept light and manages to uncover clues that lead to plot twists that throw you off the scent of the true murderer. "
"author C.A. Newsome has a lively bunch of eccentric characters who are developed enough that their interactions and dialogue add to the semblance of a quiet community and offer motives for murder."
"The romance between Anderson and Dourson is gradually developed, endearing and adds another dimension to the plot -"
"The murderer's point of view is successfully interwoven into the narrative to heighten the suspense with his/her eerie observation of the park and its visitors."IR Rating: 4*~IndieReader.
From the Author
A Shot in the Bark
is the first book I ever wrote. It was bornout of my desire to have all the elements I like in one book: a smart,fun mystery, with eccentric characters, realistic dogs, and a pair ofromantic leads I could relate to with no graphic sex. Lia and Peter have had many adventures since then and I've learned a lot: about them, andabout telling stories. In October 2017 I released the second edition of Shot,
motivated by my commitment to provide qualityentertainment to the best of my abilities. The entire book has beenedited to reflect the evolution of my writing. It also includes new and expanded scenes and it 15% longer. I hope you enjoy!
