Publisher Description

Riches to rags. ... Controlling to chaos. ... But murder ... well maybe …

Doreen’s success at solving murders has hit the newswires across the country, but all Doreen wants is to be left alone. She has antiques to get to the auction house and a relationship with Corporal Mack Moreau to work out, not to mention a new friendship to nurture with Penny, Doreen’s first friend in Kelowna, and Doreen doesn’t want to ruin things.

But when a surprise accusation won’t leave Doreen alone—about Penny’s late husband George’s death and made by one of the men Doreen helped put away—she thinks that maybe it can’t hurt to just take a quick look into her new friend’s past.

Before Doreen knows it, she’s juggling a cold case, a closed case, and a possible mercy killing … along with cultivating her relationships with Penny, Mack, and Doreen’s pets: Mugs, the basset hound; Goliath, the Maine coon cat, and Thaddeus, the far-too-talkative African gray parrot. And while Mack should be used to Doreen’s antics by now, when she dives into yet another of his cases it’s becoming increasingly hard to take ...

Evidence in the Echinacea

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it.

I just adore this book. The story is different in nature and is a great escape. I loved the antics of the pets. It makes for some great laughs. This story flows and before I knew it, it was over.

If you want to get away from it for a little while, this is a great bookcation! I highly recommend.

Cute and a little silly

I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. If you’re a loyal reader of this authors books; I feel I must warn you that this book (the fifth in her new series) is VERY different from anything else she’s written before.

Some may find it to be a little “young,” but as with most of Ms. Dale’s work, it is well written and a fast, easy read.

Doreen Montgomery moves to Kelowna (BC) to live in her Grandma Nan’s home after a nasty split from her husband of 14 years.

Her her first week in her new home she “discovered “ a few dead bodies (with the assistance of her new family; her Basset Hound Mugs, her Grandmas pets a cat named Goliath and a vocal African Grey Parrot named Thaddeus).

Doreen has somehow gotten involved in several murder cases in the time she’s lived in Kelowna, BC. Much mayhem and adventure ensues for Doreen, Mac, and Doreen’s pets.

This is an entertaining and somewhat silly story. I can’t say this is my favorite or Ms. Dale’s series; but, it is cute and of course well written. I’ve allowed a young teen to read, something I wouldn’t allow of her other book series.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
