Dial Meow For Murder
Dial Meow for Murder (Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery) - Bethany Blake

This is book 2 in the series by Bethany Blake. It is Halloween and Daphne has moved into the old caretaker's cabin. She has shown up at the old Flynt Mansion to help sell her dog treats to help raise funds for the dog rescue. Her mother is having a fit in the mansion as the owner cannot be found and her cat is running around and the place is a mess. Finally, Daphne, trying to catch the cat finds the body of Lillian Flynt and then takes in her terror of a cat. 


She and Jonathon are becoming better friends and he has formed a good relationship with Artie and Axis (the two dogs from the previous book that she convinced him to adopt). His ex-wife has moved to the area and seems to be trying to have a relationship with him. Her sometimes boyfriend is trying to have a serious conversation with him. 


Along the way, she finds another body and finds the real murderer. 


Pretty good story and Daphne is starting to become more dependable, but still flighty. I do recommend reading the stories in order and there is a 3rd book on the way in the spring.

Where Did Those Names Come From???
Dial Meow for Murder (Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery) - Bethany Blake
After enjoying "Death by Chocolate Lab" so much I knew I had to request this installment the minute I saw it offered on Netgalley. In "Dial Meow for Murder," the main character, Daphne, once again finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time when she finds the body of a wealthy philanthropist during a Halloween gala at the woman's home. Despite the objections from Jonathan Black, the local detective, Daphne continues to look into the murder and gets into all kinds of predicaments along the way.

I felt this second installment was just as strong as the initial one. I enjoy the interaction between Daphne and her family, as well as her best friend. There is still some sexual tension going on between Daphne and Jonathan, but if the author is planning on hooking them up eventually, she is taking her time which makes me very happy as I am not a fan of insta-love. In addition, Jonathan's ex has shown up in town and it's unclear if there is a reconciliation in the future between the two. 

What I like best about this series is the connection with the pets. The entire town seems quite pet-centric and since it takes place in October, there are lots of pet-centered activities throughout. In addition, we get to see more of Daphne's dog Socrates than in the first book. This book does introduce some new cat characters, as probably deduced from the title, named Tinkleston and Himmelfarb. I mainly mention them because I would love to ask Blake how she came up with these names! 

"Dial Meow for Murder" is a wonderful cozy mystery and is a must read for anyone who enjoys the genre and likes animals to boot. The mystery takes a few twists and turns along the way and because Daphne is a far-from-perfect character, her day to day actions are a lot of fun to read about. This installment has left me anxiously awaiting book #3. 

I received this book from Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This book will be used for my cozy mystery square on my 2017 Halloween Bingo Challenge.

This was an ok read.


Not as good as the first. I found the MC more annoying in this book. Her flightiness was more pronounced and not as endearing. I may give the next one in the series a chance, but my excitement for this series has waned a bit.


On a positive note the mystery was not bad and kept me guessing.


I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
