This is the second in Ruby Loren' s Madigan Amos Zoo Mysteries, a series I joyfully recommend. The animal lore is enticing, and protagonist Madi Amos Is a delight. She is sometimes indecisive, quite often feckless, but she loves all animals and deeply cares for their well-being, so that makes her a winner in my view. After her stint at Avery Zoo, Madi, with Lucky, her rescue kitten, has become a itinerant zoo consultant, reviewing procedures and animal welfare on contract. At a private safari park near Hull, England, Madi is again confronted with thievery, treachery, and murder, at an ophidiophile' s dream.
WOW, I never knew about those kinds of snakes before.
Madi is a remarkable, smart, daredevil when she has to. She is very good as a consultant at zoos that need help, but she is a magnet for bad things happening with the help of Lowell her now boyfriend that is a P.I.
She still has her ties with the Avery Zoo where she started.
This Snidely Manor had been in the snake business for many centuries down through the generations of family.
Of course, there is always some bad apples in every family.
You will have to read this very, very gripping story, I didn't sleep much. I hope YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!
I can't wait to read the third book in this series.
Penguins and Mortal Peril #1 - A good thriller. A well written, intriguing suspense with a well thought out, twisting plot and believable characters. There's interesting information about the zoo and its animals. Madi is an intelligent, caring person, especially with the animals, and takes loving care of the zoo. There's also humor; beware of furry pyschos. The animals are a good part of the story and some even have their own personalities. I finished the book in one sitting, immersed in the mystery. If you liked Blooming, you'll like this book, too.
Murder is a Monkey's Game #3 - Another well written, intriguing suspense this time set in France. There's an interesting plot that holds the reader's attention, although a bit slower when compared to the previous two books. The characters are still interesting and the relationships between the characters are realistic and entertaining. While not necessary since each book is a standalone, I would recommend reading the books in order. Madi's story is continuously evolving and her growth as a character, too. I contacted the author to review her work many books ago.
Lions and the Living Dead #4 - Her best book yet! This is a substantial and intriguing suspense with a well written, fast paced plot and believable characters. The main characters continue to evolve and the new characters are developed enough to have weight. The descriptions and storylines are vivid and full. The dialog realistic. The story flows from page to page making it difficult to put the book down. I stayed up late to finish it.
The Peacock's Poison #5 - Another well written, well thought out story with our Madi and her crew. A longer book than usual, but just as substantial, that keeps the reader immersed in the pages until the end. Someone did their homework and makes it look bad for Madi. Poor dummy, bad move. Each book in the series gets better and the books always have you thinking. I watched this author mature as an author and her work doesn't disappoint.
I have to recommend this series as must reads. Start with Penguins #1 to meet Madi and finish with Lions. If these are the only two books of the series you read, you picked well. But don't miss out on Silence and Monkey's Game. Sequentially is how they should be read, but it's not necessary, they're all standalones.
Death's Dark Horse #1 - A well written, suspense filled story with a unique and surprising character and many other interesting characters, along with humor thorough out the story. The plot is well thought out and the reader is kept guessing as to what is so specially about the main character: her job is surprising and you may guess at her animal. I guessed it but put it out of my mind and surprise I was right. I've read many of Ms. Loren's books and she gets better with each new book.
As usual, nothing can go simply for Madi. On part of her survey in the big cat open areas, one of the keepers has a funny turn and for some reason leaves her car! This starts just a small part of the weird and strange goings on at this zoo. Bring in someone from her recent past and matters are further confused.
Matters could become deadly for Madi and others around her. There is also something Madi doesn’t like about the niece of the manor owners. She should listen more to her instincts about others. She is so good at understanding animals, she just needs more practice with people.
Deadly snakes, missing people and dead bodies! All part and parcel for a mystery involving Madi and a zoo. Another great read which leaves you thinking you know who is doing what, for yet another surprise to rear its head, completely twisting the storyline. You can never know what might happen.
Yet another great read. I have read others in this series and had missed this one originally, so was very glad to catch up on it and find out what I had missed. Each book can be read as standalone books, but you get such a better understanding of Madi and the other characters if they are read in order, but it isn’t necessary. I was lucky to receive a copy of this book from the author and I have freely given my own opinion of the book above. I can’t wait to read anything and everything from this author.
