Welcome to the Barks & Beans Cafe, a quaint place where folks pet shelter dogs while enjoying a cup of java...and where murder sometimes pays a visit.

Fed up with her go-nowhere job, newly single Macy Hatfield moves back to her small hometown in West Virginia. She joins forces with her brother Bo in his crazy new venture—the Barks & Beans Cafe, which caters to dog lovers and coffee drinkers alike.

When a golf instructor is murdered at the nearby spiritual center, Macy winds up adopting his Great Dane. Just after Macy finds a mysterious message sewn under the dog's collar, her Dane is dognapped. She launches into a relentless search for her newfound canine friend, but along the way, she digs up a cruel and confident killer.

Join siblings Macy and Bo Hatfield as they sniff out crimes in their hometown...with plenty of dogs along for the ride! The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series features a small town, an amateur sleuth, and no swearing or graphic scenes.

What I Thought:

Well, since I am from West Virginia, I am always partial to books set in my great state. But, honestly, this one was really good. I enjoyed the plot very much and the setting, a coffee shot that also features shelter dogs was really interesting. I enjoyed the story line and the mystery was gripping. Macy and her brother Bo were both great characters. Macy and Bo have both just moved back to Lewisburg, so neither sibling really knows the murder victim. Macy makes a visit to the neighboring town where the victim lived and ends up falling in love with his Great Dane and ends up adopting him. When Coal is dogknapped, Macy goes on a spree to find him. This takes her to Ivy Hill, the local spa and she gets immersed in all the shady doings going on there. I found this a fast paced book that kept my attention from the very beginning. I did not suspect who the killer was at all and was totally surprised by the ending. I definitely look forward to more in this great series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book.
