Darcy and her dog Missy are determined to put their best foot forward at the Enchanted Village’s annual Pawsitively Enchanted pet contest. She’s happy to lend a hand when the show’s organizer hires Darcy to keep an eye on things among growing suspicions that someone is sabotaging the event. But Darcy’s quest for justice is thrown off the scent when her lead suspect is found dead at the competition.
As if a murder weren’t bad enough, someone begins snatching up prize-winning pets right from under their owners’ noses. Darcy is determined to protect the pampered participants at whatever cost. But she’ll have to work fast to sniff out the thief before she becomes the next victim of a killer determined to stop her dead in her tracks...
I loved how many side mysteries were in this book. It never felt like there was too much going on, and it wasn’t confusing following all the various mysteries. I guessed the answers to who the Elder was, as well as the mystery around the dove by about half-way through the book or so. But I liked getting to see how the plots would unfold.
I had no idea who the killer was, and no idea who the petnapper was. But it made total sense once those mysteries were revealed. I liked the way Craft worked in the book, and really liked the thought of familiars being witches reborn into an animal body.
There was a very minor thread of romance in the book, but it was fairly backseat to all the mysteries. The characters were well-developed, and I liked reading about all of them as well as their town. I will definitely be going back and reading the earlier books in the series.
If you like paranormal cozies, you need to give this one a try.
