  • Charming

    This is the 10th book in the Lovely Lethal Garden series, although it is a standalone I would sincerely recommend reading the rest of the series to get the most enjoyment from this book. Doreen Montgomery is divorced from her controlling husband and is left with nothing apart from a house donated by her beloved Nan, she has no domestic skills and is in the process of being taught to cook by her best friend Mack Moreau of the Kelowna Police Department. Doreen does however have a talent for snooping and is gaining a reputation as an amateur sleuth and for helping Mack solve cold cases. Mack is impressed by her results but not her methods, in fact he sometimes finds her totally exasperating, Doreen tends to have het head in the clouds and jumps in with both feet regardless of the consequences. When she is presented with a collection of very valuable gems by Mack's mother Millicent and asked to trace the owner Doreen sets off on yet another adventure accompanied by her equally eccentric and protective pets, Mugs the dog, Goliath the cat and Thaddeus the talking parrot. Dale Mayer has managed to cleverly combine the serious crimes of murder and theft and marry them light heartedly with the delightful, slightly wacky Doreen, her lovely Nan and her entourage of clever pets. This is an enchanting book with lovely characters and a very slow burning, will they wont they, romance between Doreen and Mack. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • This book was a hilarious page turner.

    This book was a hilarious page turner. Not only is Doreen a super sleuth, she has a big heart. Clearing cold cases with help from her little menagerie of animals. Mack is turning out to be a wonderful friend, and maybe more as this series continues. Gran is still the lively firecracker in her seniors home, and always there for Doreen. I love reading each of the books in this series.

  • It's all about the characters

    The Lovely Lethal Gardens series is a fun whimsical series. The books are enjoyable due to the various characters. Doreen has gone from riches to rags when her rich husband divorced her. Doreen has been so sheltered, her husband had help and didn't think that Doreen should take care of anything her self. Now on her own, she needs to learn to how to get things done. There is Mack the Detective for the town, he helps Doreen answering any question she has (although sometimes he can't stop laughing at her questions.) He is always at her house helping her out and teaching her to cook. Then there is Nan, she lives at the retirement always giving Doreen food and sneaking money to her . Then there are the animals. Doreen is known around town because always has her dog, cat and parakeet with her. As Doreen gets involved in solving cold cases, Mack gets annoyed that she is getting in the middle of his cold cases. He can't complain too much since she is solving the cases that have been open for decades. Although Doreen always ends up in trouble, her pets are always there to save her until Mack gets there. When I am looking for a fun story this is my choice. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

  • This cozy mystery series is great fun

    It is always such great fun to meet up once again with Doreen and the rest of the gang for a new cozy mystery. The story is of course engaging and it keeps you on your toes as you strive to put the clues together and solve the case before Doreen; just so you can feel a bit smug and proud of yourself. Mack, Nan and Doreen's furry menagerie are also around and they add plenty of humor and charm to this read. A really delightful series that consistently delivers time and again. This is my frank and freely posted review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Love this series

    When a new book in this series hits my kindle I smile. I actually laughed out loud in this one. Doreen and her animals are very entertaining, especially the bird. Another cold case just landed in her lap, can she resist snooping to find the answers? Jewels, murder, robbery and arson, so many pieces to put together. You know the animals are going to save the day again. Great entertaining story, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
