Overall | This was a cute mystery with an interesting murder
Pros | She’s an animal rescuer! Thank you for not leaving the animal out in the wild to fend for itself – I can automatically tell when an author doesn’t like cats or dogs because they think it’s “happy” being all alone fending for itself + being homelss and starving.

Warnings | None
POV | First Person POV Past Tense
