    A wonderful entry in this simply super series

    This is another wonderful entry in this simply super series. Once again suspense, danger, mystery and secrets are drawn to amateur sleuth (and pro trouble magnate!), Doreen. The story is very engaging, well written and captures and holds your interest easily. This cozy mystery makes sure things don't get too intense or dark by adding liberal splashes of humor, a heavy dollop of zaniness and some sweetness from a slowly developing romance. Along with Doreen, all of the old friends make their return as well. So you can expect plenty of laughs from Nan (who's a real character!), Mugs, Goliath and Thaddeus (Doreen's devoted, furry and feathered assistants) and of course, the long-suffering Corporal Mack Moreau. So enjoyable!

    Doreen is at it again.

    The cozy books only get better. Not only are the mysteries are all cold cases, but they are also very different. Mack is always after Doreen to stay out of police business and naturally, she falls right into each and every one by accident. Each one is generally about a social issue that plagues all countries and does need addressing. Dale does it masterfully and with empathy. This one I got to see my last name as a district and a street. It was cool. Not that I think it was intentional but I loved it. Thanks, Ms. Dale. If you want an easy read with some drama and murder mixed in, you cannot go wrong with one of Dale's Cozy Mystery Books. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    An Old Life for a New Life

    Doreen has been able to find several missing persons since her arrival in Kelowna. This one, however, is unlike any of the others. So much is going on here. Her cranky neighbor, Richard, has agreed to let Doreen do some yardwork for him in exchange for the large quantity of dirt she had "borrowed" during the Guns in the Gardenias case. Her intent was to show appreciation when she asked whether she could look to see the reason why one of his hydrangea bushes looked a little small. Imagine her and Richard’s surprise when her eye caught sight of something in the nearby blooming heather. You guessed it, handcuffs! BUT, these were not ordinary handcuffs…more the recreational type, pink satin similar to the ones sex workers use, but covered with the filth that can only come from years in the dirt. A prostitute in Richard’s yard? Are the handcuffs the key to unlocking another one or two old open cases? The title of this review is another key. Armed with the box of files she inherited from Nan’s old journalist friend, Doreen has a plethora of resources to support her extracurricular volunteer work. And now, so do you.

    Love the series, and loved this book

    I love this series, and I loved this book! Doreen is working on another cold case, and pink satin handcuffs play a part in it. Doreen shows so much empathy, you can’t help but love her. Doreen and her little furry and feathered companions make me smile. Corporal Mack is the perfect friend to have. Helping Doreen learn to cook, and slowly but surely he seems to be letting her do more investigating without telling her to stay out of it. Nan is fairly docile in this book hahahaha. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book

    A good book with great characters

    Handcuffs in the Heather is part of the Lovely Lethal Garden Series. Once again we find Doreen in the middle of a cold case investigation. Usually I don't like reading the amateur sleuth genre, but what makes this book different are the characters. Doreen is an ex-trophy wife, who has never lived alone, can't cook, work or take care of the house. Then there's the animals that Doreen inherited the cat Goliath, the dog Mugs, and the parrot Thaddeus who seems to know the appropriate comments for the occasion. Then there is Mack, the police officer friend that helps her out. There is definitely chemistry between Mack and Doreen and Mack spends a lot of time at her house. I am waiting for them to move things to the next level. Once Doreen feels that she knows who the suspect is she goes and confronts them. When the suspect goes on the attack, her menagerie holds off the suspect until Mack is able to come to the rescue. If your looking for a steamy romance this isn't the book for you, but if your looking for a story with characters you will love, this book is for you.
