My Review

What’s not to love. A fun cozy mystery, colorful characters, sweet cover art, and the book is full of critters. I knew I had to read Unleashed.

I had a good time and met some fun characters. Dr. Kate Turner came across as professional and spunky. I could feel the authors experience in her and loved the interaction between Kate and her patients.

There were some interesting cases with her patients. The one with the potbellied pig was so funny. It’s always wonderful to read how other people are with their precious furry family members. We all hold them so dear.

The case was a pickle too. Not easily solved and fun was had ‘sniffing’ out clues and following wrong ‘leads.’ Excuse the puns:)

Oak Falls reminds me a lot of my hometown. It’s small, most of us know each other, by sight if not by name. There’s a huge animal coalition and artist colony too. And many of our veterinarians make house calls. I felt quite at home in this town too.

As for romance. I think there’s something about to happen between Kate and Luke, the sexy police officer. They’re good friends but me thinks they are both denying a sexual attraction. Could get interesting.

Love animals, mysteries that lead you down winding roads, and lots of humor? You’ll enjoy Unleashed and I urge you to give it a read.

4 Stars



Dr. Kate Turner is happy with her new life in Oak Falls, upstate New York. Working as a relief veterinarian at a small house-call practice, she truly enjoys helping her patients.

All that changes when client Claire Birnham is found dead, an apparent suicide. A talented artist, Claire had everything to live for: new job, Manhattan apartment, her Cairn terrier Toto. As feisty as the Wizard of Oz Toto, he and Claire were devoted. Kate can’t imagine Claire simply abandoning her pet. Was her death murder?

Questions end in the police arresting young kennel helper Eugene. The fragile friendship between Kate and police officer Luke Gianetti frays as she ignores his advice and keeps asking questions. House calls provide gossip and clues, some helpful, some not so much, as she treats her animal patients. Did Claire’s recent insurance windfall prove too tempting for her hard working and hard drinking mother? What does trouble in the art gallery where Claire worked signal? How huge a grudge did heavy metal rocker A.J. hold against high-school sweetheart Claire after she dumped him? Was Claire a threat to AJ’s rich new girl?

Dr. Kate mixes real medicine with murder as she risks her life over Claire’s death, aided by insights from a former fire investigator, aka her Gramps. Unleashed is as irresistible as Muzzled.
