Murder with a View

Readers who appreciate house-flipping television shows and country music will love this exploration of Nashville. A nosy pet and great human characters make this a worthy buy.

Bending the Paw

Kelly successfully combines police procedural with cozy in a mystery that has moments of humor. Readers of the previous title in the “Paw Enforcement” series, Paw of the Jungle, will be familiar with the author’s style of incorporating viewpoints from Megan, Brigit, and the primary criminal. Fans of Spencer Quinn’s “Chet and Bernie” books will enjoy Brigit’s comments and the dog-human partnership.

Paw of the Jungle

While part of a series, this cozy can be read as a stand-alone and will be appreciated by animal lovers. Recommended for readers of Spencer Quinn’s “Chet and Bernie” books.

No Comfort for the Lost: A Mystery of Old San Francisco

Herriman (The Irish Healer; Josiah's Treasure) crafts a finely detailed series debut with a sympathetic protagonist and impeccable, colorful depictions of 1860s San Francisco

Laying Down the Paw

Kelly's sassy third installment (after Paw and Order) is another lighthearted, engaging adventure. Like Spencer Quinn's canine narrator Chet, the reader hears from Brigit, which adds to the fun. A strong suggestion for fans of Susan Conant's dog mysteries. Readers who feel the loss of Lee Martin's "Fort Worth" police series featuring Deb Ralston or who are devoted to Susan McBride's "Texas Deb" books will also be thrilled.

Death, Taxes, and Peach Sangria

Death, Taxes, and a Skinny No-Whip Latte

It is hard not to notice a sexy CPA with a proclivity for weapons. Kelly's sophomore series title (after Death, Taxes, and a French Manicure) isn't cozy, but it has huge romance crossover appeal. With surprisingly dense financial trails and details, the story is not quite as light as the title suggests.
