Publisher Description

A new cozy mystery series from USA Today best-selling author Dale Mayer. Follow gardener and amateur sleuth Doreen Montgomery—and her amusing and mostly lovable cat, dog, and parrot—as they catch murderers and solve crimes in lovely Kelowna, British Columbia.


Riches to rags. … Controlling to chaos. … But murder … seriously?


After her ex-husband leaves her high and dry, former socialite Doreen Montgomery's chance at a new life comes in the form of her grandmother, Nan's, dilapidated old house in picturesque Kelowna … and the added job of caring for the animals Nan couldn’t take into assisted living with her: Thaddeus, the loquacious African gray parrot with a ripe vocabulary, and his buddy, Goliath, a monster-size cat with an equally monstrous attitude.


It’s the new start Doreen and her beloved basset hound, Mugs, desperately need. But, just as things start to look up for Doreen, Goliath the cat and Mugs the dog find a human finger in Nan’s overrun garden.


And not just a finger. Once the police start digging, the rest of the body turns up and turns out to be connected to an old unsolved crime.


With her grandmother as the prime suspect, Doreen soon finds herself stumbling over clues and getting on Corporal Mack Moreau’s last nerve, as she does her best to prove her beloved Nan innocent of murder.

Arsenic in the Azaleas

Love this book.
The main character is not too flawed and her fur and feather family are lovable and bring humor to this story. Of course , Mack is the typical lawman saying stay out of my cases, but he has a soft side that is always nice to see.
Love this book!

Arsenic in the Azaleas

Fun, cute book. Too many bodies for over stressed heroine to deal with in such short time! Look forward to reading the next book in the series.
