~Cozy Up With Kathy
A wonderful start to an interesting series that shows much potential.
I loved this fascinating mystery! Heather Day Gilbert’s descriptions of the setting were impressive and the pacing was spot on. There was always plenty going on and there was certainly never a dull moment!
~Brianne’s Book Reviews
What a way to start a new series – red herrings galore, hidden killers, and mysterious motives. All of these lead to an unexpected ending.
This was a great start to this series and it was a good clean and times lighthearted read despite the murders! I have to admit the twist and turns kept me on my toes and I really did not see the actual culprit coming!
This is a brand new cozy mystery series and it’s off to a wonderful start. The book grabs you right from page one. It’s fast-paced with humor sprinkled throughout the book.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
Belinda Blake and the Snake in the Grass is an upbeat cozy mystery with Louboutin heels, chauffeured cars, a debonair gentleman, a massive mansion, a quirky amateur sleuth, and a slithering serpent named Rasputin.

When exotic pet-sitter Belinda Blake moves into a carriage house in tony Greenwich, Connecticut, she’s hoping to find some new clients. Instead she discovers a corpse in the garden—and a knack for solving murders . . .
Pet-sitter Belinda Blake doesn’t rattle easily, but move-in day has been eventful, to say the least. The python in her care tried to slither to freedom—just as she met Stone Carrington V, her landlords’ disarmingly handsome son. With the constrictor back in its cage, she heads out to the garden, only to discover a designer shoe poking out of the boxwood hedge—attached to a woman’s dead body.
The victim, Margo Fenton, was a Carrington family friend, and no one in their circle seems above suspicion. Between client trips to Manhattan and visits to her family in upstate New York, Belinda begins to put the pieces together. But though she’s falling for Stone’s numerous charms, Belinda wonders if she’s cozying up to a killer. And soon, daily contact with a deadly reptile might be the least dangerous part of her life . . .
