A TASTE FUR MURDER BY DIXIE LYLE

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Introducing an animal-loving Gal Friday with a telepathic cat, a shapeshifting dog, and a ghost of a chance of solving supernatural crime…

Meet Deirdre “Foxtrot” Lancaster. Trusted employee of eccentric zillionairess Zelda Zoransky, Foxtrot manages a mansion, a private zoo, and anything else that strikes her boss’s fancy. Her job title is Administrative Assistant, but chaos handler would be more accurate. Especially after she glimpses a giant ghost-beast in Zelda’s pet cemetery. For some strange reason, Foxtrot is seeing animal spirits. And, ready or not, in this mystery from Dixie Lyle, the fur’s about to hit the fan…

A TASTE FUR MURDER

Still reeling, Foxtrot comes home to find her cat Tango—her dead cat Tango—alive and well and communicating telepathically. But that’s not all: There’s an ectoplasmic dog named Tiny who changes breeds with a shake of his tail…and can sniff out a clue like nobody’s business. So when a coworker drops dead while organizing closets, Tiny is on the case. Can Foxtrot and her new companions ferret out the killer among a menagerie of suspects—human and otherwise—before death takes another bite?


A TASTE FOR MURDER IS OUT 25FEB14. 



ABOUT THE AUTHOR:


"Dixie Lyle loves animals, mysteries, books, reading, words, bad puns (are there any other kind?) and once had a torrid summer romance with an entire library. Did I mention the books? Oh, and definitely doesn't believe in the supernatural. Nope, not me. Hey, what was that sound? Where's that spooky green glow coming from? Oh, hello, didn't see you standing there in the corner, what with you being all see-through and everything. Want a cup of tea? Moan once for yes, twice for no.

Allegations that Dixie Lyle has a goofy sense of humor are entirely unfounded, and should be forwarded to the unfounded and unlost department."





MY REVIEW:  

I was given an ARC of this of book for an honest review.

A Taste Fur Murder kicks off Ms. Lyle's Whiskey,Tango, and Foxtrot Series.

I'm very picky about the first person books I read. And the types of mysteries I read. But I am a sucker for ANY book that gives animals a role in the story.

This book charmed me. A cozy little mystery with a paranormal twist and the purr-fect amount of humor. The mystery was unique and challenging enough to hold my interest. 

I'm a total fangirl and look forward to more books in this series by Ms. Lyle.
