$25 Amazon/PP-1-WW-Mystery at the Groomers: Cottonwood Springs Cozy-Dianne Harman Ends 11/3

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

Somebody is causing trouble for the new dog grooming place and the owner. When Brigid went to get her dog groomed she saw what initially happened and tried to get the owner to report it. The woman hemmed and hawed--she did not do it. Then some real damage was done to her property and she finally called the sheriff. Actually two different people did the damage-but both were finally tracked down!

Meanwhile, Missy, the preachers wife was pregnant and about to give birth. Nobody had planned a baby shower so Brigid with the help of her sister got it all together. Then in the middle of the shower the baby decided it was time to come. No worries--they made it to the hospital in time--

If you want to know if she had a boy or a girl--you will have to read this book to find out!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

There's a new dog groomer in Cottonwood Springs, and Brigid's delighted! No more taking her dogs, Jett and Lucky, to an out-of-town groomer.

But there are a few problems, like broken statues, dug-up plants, and a very bad word written on a window. Joss, the owner of Happy Paws Grooming, thinks it's probably just the work of neighborhood kids and doesn't want to pursue it. But what if it isn't? What if someone has more sinister plans in store for the groomer?

Brigid becomes concerned not only for the safety of the groomer, but also for the neighbors, because the more she and Sheriff Davis discover, the more certain they are that someone intends to seriously harm the groomer.

During their investigation, they uncover family feuds, revenge for a dog being too friendly, and a person seriously depressed from the death of her mother.

Then when Brigid plans a baby shower for her good friend, Missy, and the mother-to-be goes into labor during it, life becomes a little more hectic than she'd planned!

If you like to feel good at the end of a book and like a good cozy mystery with dogs and recipes, this one's for you.

This is the 16th book in the Cottonwood Springs Cozy Mystery Series by a USA Today Bestselling Author.
