    Funny/silly mystery

    I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. This is book 7 of 7. in the Lovely Lethal Gardens series. This book series is quite different from anything else Ms. Dale has written before. But, quite excellent. The series continues to remind me of Janet Evanovich’s fun/silly Stephanie Plum mysteries. Doreen seems to inadvertently get into similar “adventures” as Stephanie Plum, and in lieu of a crazy, potty-mouthed, ex-prostitute, side-kick; Doreen has an crazy African Grey parrot. (Seriously).. The book while dealing with some morbid events, is light-hearted and comical in parts, but no hot-steamy love scenes, violence, or profanity. As always, Ms. Dale writes an entertaining and fast read. Series begins with Doreen Montgomery, a divorced 35 year-old woman who’s on her own for the first time. After losing everything but her dog (Mugs) an adorable Basset Hound moves into her grandma “Nan’s” home. Where she ends up the new caretaker/owner of some interesting pets. As before, I recommend this book, if you want a fun-light-hearted, but easy read book. If you are accustomed to some of Ms. Dale’s steamier work and that’s your preference; then you may not enjoy. It does help a bit to read the series in order, just to understand the characters better. The fun and crazy adventures of Doreen and her pets are suitable for younger readers 14+ in my opinion. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Another case to crack for Doreen and company

    This is another incredibly enjoyable entry in this terrific series. I am a true romance fan but I think it is impossible not the fall under the spell of Doreen and the rest of these lovable characters as each new mystery unfolds. The storyline will quickly capture your attention and have you trying hard to solve the case before Doreen can. In my opinion, what really makes this series so special is the cast of characters. From the sometimes too clever for her own good, trouble magnet that is Doreen, to the long suffering and much put upon Corporal Mack, to Doreen's outrageous, hilarious (and quite scene stealing) grandma, Nan, to Doreen's passel of loyal furred and feathered sidekicks (Goliath the cat, Muggs the dog and Thaddeus the parrot), these characters are genuine, likable and so very funny. If you are new to this series, you can feel free to jump in at any time as each book can be read as a standalone. However do keep in mind that character growth and relationships are evolving over the course of the series. A really fun read!

    I can't not love this cute cozy mystery series

    I really adore Doreen and her adorable critters, always love it when they're in action, and this book totally not disappoint, although kinda predictable, but with all the fun and the joy Doreen and those quirky critters bring, I still love this book, especially the relationship between Mack and Doreen, they're just so sweet and cute together. This book has a good cold case story, great chemistry between characters, loveable fur babies, cool actions, yup love this book a lot. If you're looking for a cozy mystery read, this book is it.

    It just gets better.

    This series is so much fun to read. The animals are so adorable. Doreen is in trouble with her neighbors all the time because she keeps solving cold cases so the media camps out in the cul de sac trying to see what she is up to next. Just when things quiet down, something pops up like a gun in the gardenias, of course, brought over by a disgruntled neighbor. Things keep heating up and it just gets better. I could go on and on and then I would spoil it, so I must stop. You will love this series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    So much happening in such a short time

    Still smarting from the headwound she suffered in Book 5, Doreen now faces false rumors that she fabricated the allegations against her former new friend Penny Jordan. With the support of her good friend Corporal Mack , along with her 2-legged, 4-legged, and winged family members and an unexpected diversion from her neighbor’s finding a gun in his gardenias, Doreen is able to resolve completely several open questions from the cases in Books 5 and 6, as well as some new, now-related cold cases. Never a dull moment, even on the days when she is determined to rest so she can finish cleaning out her old house now that the valuable antique pieces have gone to the auction house. A good mix of excitement, danger, and exhausting housework in this, Book 7 of the Lovely Lethal Gardens series. Can’t wait to see what happens next!
