    Scent of Murder

    The Scent of Murder takes place in Cleveland and tells the story of Jazz Ramsey, an administrative assistant at an all girls Catholic school during the day but in her off hours she trains cadaver dogs. Her current recruit is Luther, as pictured on the cover, a German Shepard and while training in an abandoned warehouse Luther suddenly goes on alert. This is alarming for Jazz, especially when she discovers a body. Even more alarming is the fact this is a former student from her school. The investigator turns out to be Jazz's ex-boyfriend Nick. While there is an undertone of romance, this is not prominent but could have been more and would have made this book better. The mystery was somewhat flat in that the murderer was evident early on but for some reason the players could not see it. Yea, right. Anywho, I probably will not continue this series as there is only so much time but it was an okay book if you like cozy mysteries, it was just not full on as it was trying to be. **Received this ARC to review from the publisher via NetGalley**

    Entertaining

    I really enjoyed this story. I would have given it a higher star rating but there are a few confusing holes in the story. An example is why is Jazz allowed to investigate the murder when she is in fact a dog trainer not a cop? I just had to let some things go and use my imagination to fill in the holes to enjoy the story itself. I do wish there had been more of a focus on Jazz's work with the dogs and their training. Why? Because - dogs! The mystery part of the story could have been stronger as well. Neither Jazz nor Nick seem to be able to solve the mystery even though the answer seem apparent to me. Still with all this I did enjoy the story and was completely entertained so I would recommend it to others.

    K-9 Murder Mystery

    The Scent of Murder by Kylie Logan Jazz Ramsey #1 At the end of this book I felt this book was a bit more like a cozy mystery than anything else. The main character, Jasmine “Jazz” Ramsey is training Luther for his owner before Luther is to be tested and certified to be a Human Remains Detection (HRD) search and rescue dog. Stumbling upon a corpse at the beginning of the book is the introduction to Jazz, Luther and one-time-lover homicide detective Nick Kolesov. The blurb/synopsis of the book lays the groundwork and quite a bit of the backstory for this book and the characters within it. To me Jazz felt a bit lost and I am not sure if that is due to the death of her father, the loss of Nick as her significant other or something else. I hope to learn more about what motivates Jazz in future books of the series. Nick was someone I could understand as he seemed to be dedicated to his work and because he seemed to care for Jazz. I sometimes wondered if Jazz was into finding out who killed Florie because she was at loose ends and needed a purpose or if she is in fact nosy and likes to solve puzzles. I enjoyed following the leads that finally revealed who killed Florie. The supporting characters were interesting and no doubt will pop up in future books. I enjoyed the way the book was plotted and written and hope that Jazz’s personality will emerge more in the future. What I liked: * the dogs – when they appeared * the puzzle pieces that at first didn’t seem to have any reason being there and then later made so much sense * Nick – he seemed a level-headed and nice guy * Jazz’s brothers * The information about location * Finding out that my first thoughts about some “bad” people were unfounded * Not realizing right away who the murderer was What I didn’t like: * Some of Jazz’s less than polite ways of dealing with people she was questioning * Not finding out what happened to break Nick and Jazz up – was it volatile or just a slow moving away from one another * Not truly understanding what motivated Jazz Did I enjoy reading this book? Yes Would I read more in this series? Yes Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press – Minotaur Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 3-4 Stars

    All that Jazz

    Jazz Ramsey is an administrative assistant at a girls school. She also helps train cadaver finding dogs. So...when she and her companion dog Luther discover a dead body in a run down building; one would think this would not be a shock. Except finding a student she knows dressed in a horror garb in this position is eye opening. Good story just wish there had been more dog interaction and participation. A copy of this book was provided by St. Martin's Press via Netgalley with no requirement for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion. PLAN TO READ THE NEXT IN THIS SERIES - HOPE THERE IS MOVE BARKING GOING ON!

    First in a new series

    Jazz Ramsey is the second in command at an exclusive Catholic Girl’s school that trains dogs to search for cadavers. When she is working with a friend’s dog on searching, she stumbles across the body of a former student. While the memory haunts Jazz, she wants to find justice for the girl, unfortunately that means she will be crossing paths with her ex boyfriend, detective Nick Kolesov. The first in a new series, it is the first tie I have read anything by this author and I truly enjoyed the story. The characters are well developed and the mystery is well written and has a few red herrings to keep you from sniffing out the murdered too quickly. Looking forward to more in this series.
