    3.5 stars- A nice change of pace

    Hunting Hour is the first book I’ve read by this author. I was in the mood for something a bit different from my usual so I dove back into the mystery/law enforcement genre for a little reset. Plus, that cover made it hard for me to pass this title by. Although Hunting Hour is the third book in the Timber Creek K-9 Mystery series and there are references to characters, crimes, and circumstances from the previous books, it was easy enough to read this title as a standalone. While tragic, the crime detailed in Hunting Hour immediately grabbed my attention. I loved the search dog element and appreciated how accurate those components were. I also liked that the book featured a flawed heroine. The opening sequence provided a glimpse into Mattie’s history that hooked my interest and gave ample opportunity for character growth over the course of the book and series. Unfortunately, I felt like that’s where the book floundered too. Mattie let her own experiences and judgments cloud her views and color her perceptions of secondary characters. While a very honest approach which I initially liked, when it impacted her treatment of others, I struggled with liking her. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the drawn out romance between her and Timber Creek’s vet, Cole Walker. I certainly didn’t anticipate a romance to dominate the book’s plot, but when it’s teased at, I expect that side plot to advance a little more than it did. Although I struggled with the romance side plot and elements of Mattie’s character, I really enjoyed the crime detection portions of the plot. The action scenes moved steadily with a good amount of detail that kept me engaged. I also appreciated the slow reveal of how the players fit into the story and liked there were some twists involved to keep me guessing. Overall, I found Hunting Hour to be different than the usual law enforcement mysteries I read and certainly wouldn’t mind reading more from this author in the future. *ARC received from Netgalley.

    Engaging Action!

    Engaging action in this mystery. Enjoyed the read. Could have more suspects; they seemed stereotypical. Liked the characters especially Robo, Sophie, Angela and Mrs. Gibbs. The main characters, Mattie and Cole were okay; there was too much restating of her past, and quick judgements with Mattie. First time reading author. Would read again. Voluntarily read ARC for honest review.

    Hunting Hour

    I enjoy these K-9 mysteries. Not only are the stories, characters, and mysteries well written, but I adore the dogs and especially how the dog is handled in different situations. The characters are well described, and those who have emotional and mental problems are treated with dignity and respect. The story line also brings home the trauma experienced by the families whose children are abducted and/or murdered.

    Murder has a Scent

    Timber Creek K-9 Robo is amazing and due some real Lassie worship! This is my first reading of Margaret Mizushima's K-9 mysteries of which "Killing Trail" and "Stalking Ground" are also a part of this series. Had no trouble following Hunting Hour even without first reading the other two. Hunting is what Robo and his handler Mattie Cobb do best as part of the local law enforcement team. Many bumps in the road are hit in this novel whose ball rolls down the hill at an amazing page turning rate. Modern issues of elderly care, teen drug and sex secrets and the need of counseling for life's challenges are all glimpsed. Murder investigation leads into another abduction and tests the skills of Robo and Mattie. Many twists and turns made this a mystery to enjoy along with hints of romance. "A copy of this book was provided to me by Crooked Lane Books and author via Netgalley with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read and my comments here are my honest opinion."
