Murder at the Falls
by Arlene Kay
Expected publication: July 14th 2020 by Lyrical Underground
Army vet Persephone “Perri” Morgan has found a second career handcrafting leather pet accessories—and a satisfying sideline in training therapy dogs. But there’s no cure for a cold-blooded murderer. . . .
Perri and her BFF Babette Croy team up to bring their therapy dogs to an upscale senior living facility. But The Falls’ pleasant façade hides some unpleasant secrets. Valuables are missing, feuds fester, and one resident even fears for her life. Sprightly senior Magdalen Melmoth swears she’s being targeted because her grandfather was none other than Oscar Wilde, and her legacy includes an unpublished novel by the literary genius.
Convinced it’ll take more than calming canines to sniff out the truth, Perri enlists the help of her beau, hotshot reporter Wing Pruett. When a nurse is poisoned by chocolates sent to Magdalen, and a physician is brutally murdered, the case takes a deeply troubling turn. Perri, Babette, and their furry friends race to bring a killer to heel, but can they outsmart an enemy who’s simply bad to the bone?
This is the third book in the Creature Comforts series by Arlene Kay.
I read the second book in this series and I have to say that the author is really just getting better and better. I like how she paired the leather making with the therapy dogs at the nursing home. I felt like that dynamic made so much more sense for these gals.
I thought the nursing home mystery made so much sense in this day and age. I was enthralled with Magdalen’s fascination about being related to Oscar Wilde. Such a cool concept for a story that just had so much meat to it.
Definitely enjoyed this one a lot. The main character was instantly relatable and the story just made me not want to stop turning pages. Definitely recommend this one.
If you love a good cozy mystery, check this one out. What a fun read!
