Claws for Suspicion: 05/26/22
Claws for Suspicion by Deborah Blake is the third book in the Catskills Pet Rescue mystery series. Kari Stuart feels like her new life running the animal shelter has finally settled into a comfortable routine. That feeling though is thwarted by the arrival of her ex-husband who insists that her divorce paperwork was never filed properly, meaning the two are still married. He's come to claim his half of the lottery winnings and has plans to turn the shelter into a glamping retreat.
When an ex appears with horrendous plans — plans that would end the entire mystery series, it's obvious the ex will end up dead. Given how he was described by Kari and how he acted in the few chapters he was alive, I was fairly certain how he'd die, where the crime would take place, and who would do it and why they'd do it. It took a while though to learn the identity of the who.
Let's just say this was the most accurate I've been on predicting the outcome of a cozy mystery. And the earliest! Despite all that, I absolutely loved this book. The Catskills Pet Rescue mystery series is one of my current favorites. I hope there's a fourth in the works.
