Death By Chocolate Lab
by Bethany Blake

Death By Chocolate Lab is full of subtle humor, intriguing characters, and dogs with a great deal of personality. Oh – and a really well-plotted mystery with lots of twists and turns.
~Reading is my SuperPower

A great fast paced read that will keep you guessing until the end and even I was taken back by who it was.
~Bab’s Book Bistro

The writing was superb, therefore, the story flowed really well.
~Melina’s Book Blog

I just loved the dogs. Daphne’s basset hound, Socrates and Artie, the one -eared Chihuahua are just the best.~Because I said so — and other adventures in Parenting

The author is off to a grand start with this new series. I was so impressed with the writing style and how the story kept my attention.
~Texas Book-aholic

Pet lovers will be hooked on this one.
~Shelley’s Book Case

This fun little cozy mystery is full of twists.
~My Reading Journeys

I really enjoyed a couple of the dog characters, Socrates and Artie. I felt so bad for the poor little chihuahua Artie for everything that he has been through.
~Bookworm Mom

I thought this was a great start to a new series…it contained one of my favorite things, dogs!
~Storeybook Reviews

This is going to be a new favorite series for me. So much to love! A good sibling relationship, with its inherent complications but mutual attitudes towards mom, strong friendships, and of course the fantastic canines.
~Laura’s Interests

Even though I can only give five stars, this book is easily eight paws and two hands up!
~Bibliophile Reviews

The author’s writing style is phenomenal. All dialogue was smooth, thought out, and conversational. The twists and turns kept me guessing all the way until the end.
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews

If you are looking for an entertaining read that includes lots of furry friends and interesting characters, then Death by Chocolate Lab is one for you.
~A Cozy Experience

The villain was a complete surprise to me, which I like. I totally did not see that plot twist coming!
~Valerie’s Musings

Likeable characters, loveable dogs, a touch of romance and a good amount of comedy made Death by Chocolate Lab an enjoyable read. Doggie friendly recipes also added a nice touch.

Death by Chocolate Lab (Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
New Series
Kensington (February 28, 2017)
Mass Market Paperback: 304 pages
ISBN-13: 978-1496707383

Pet sitter Daphne Templeton has a soft spot for every stray and misfit who wanders into the quaint, lakeside village of Sylvan Creek. But even Daphne doesn’t like arrogant, womanizing Steve Beamus, the controversial owner of Blue Ribbon K-9 Academy. When Steve turns up dead during a dog agility trial, Daphne can think of a long list of people with motives for homicide, and so can the police. Unfortunately, at the top of the list is Daphne’s sister, Piper—Steve’s latest wronged girlfriend.

Certain that Piper is innocent, in spite of mounting evidence to the contrary, Daphne sets out to clear her sister’s name—and find Axis, Steve’s prize-winning chocolate Labrador, who went missing the night of Steve’s death. Aided by Socrates, her taciturn basset hound, and a hyperactive one-eared Chihuahua named Artie, Daphne quickly runs afoul of Detective Jonathan Black, a handsome and enigmatic newcomer to town, who has no appreciation for Daphne’s unorthodox sleuthing.

Can a free-spirited pet sitter, armed only with a Ph.D. in Philosophy and her two incompatible dogs, find the real killer before she becomes the next victim?

Includes recipes for homemade dog treats!
