No Filter (Barks & Beans Cafe Cozy Mystery)
by Heather Day Gilbert
What a wonderful cozy series debut! . . . Entertaining and totally engrossing, you wouldn’t want to miss reading this awesome cozy debut.
The Book Decoder
No Filter is a charming cozy mystery with a clever canine named Coal, deafening drums, a gone golfer, Brazilian beans, and a despicable dognapper.
~The Avid Reader
No Filter was a fun, exciting mystery that featured a charming furry sidekick.
I loved it . . . The Barks & Beans series is just my kind of read. I love the quain(t) town and the coffee shop/doggie daycare.
~My Reading Journeys
Full of cute critters, well developed characters, and just enough clues to keep you turning the page wondering what she will find next. A solid base for a new adorable cozy mystery series.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
No Filter by Heather Day Gilbert is a delightful beginning to The Barks & Beans Cafe Cozy Mystery book series. I appreciate the fact that this is a completely clean book with neither swearing nor sexual innuendo…
~Christy’s Cozy Corners
The mystery was well plotted and carried on well throughout the book. There were enough clues to sift through and suspects to consider. The mystery was intriguing and not easily solved.
No Filter is well written and entertaining. There are so many clues and suspects; you just have to pay attention.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
This book will keep you guessing and the mystery, while wrapped up nicely, allows for continuation on various planes, including romance.
If you enjoy quirky small-town mysteries, or mysteries featuring dogs as companion animals, and occasional sleuthing assistants, No Filter is an absolute delight.
~Brianne’s Book Reviews
Intelligent characters, an interesting setting, a wonderful Great Dane, and what looks to be a very interesting and dangerous story arc make me eager to read the next book.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
As far as cozy mysteries goes this quaint little town takes a deadly turn, filled with a host of colourful characters, a little romance, and of course cute doggies of all shapes and sizes.
The mystery is complex with a variety of suspects and twists and turns. In the course of the investigation, a huge secret is revealed which could change everything. I totally enjoyed the exciting chase to the big reveal.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
. . . this one was really good. I enjoyed the plot very much and the setting, a coffee shop that also features shelter dogs was really interesting. I enjoyed the story line and the mystery was gripping.
