Waiting on Wednesday (53) - Booker T and Cassius Style

"Waiting on" Wednesday" is weekly meme hosted over at Breaking the Spine which spotlights upcoming anticipated releases.  

Mom is working out of town a lot this week and while she will be home in the evenings, she will have some long days so the timing was prime for me and Cassius to sneak in and do the W.O.W. feature while she isn't looking.

FROM GOODREADS: New to the historic town of Metamora, Indiana, Cameron Cripps-Hayman is looking to make friends with her neighbors. What she isn’t looking for is one of their bodies floating in the canal. 

When she and her estranged husband, the town sheriff, are both named suspects for the murder, Cameron takes solving the crime into her own hands, teaming up with her eccentric co-workers who dub themselves The Metamora Action Agency. 

As if hunting for a murderer with two high school geniuses, the town drunk, and an elderly kleptomaniac isn’t hard enough, Cameron adopts the five mangy guard dogs of her deceased neighbor. But maybe a stint at playing gatekeeper is just what she needs to come face-to-face with the killer and save another neighbor from being the next victim.

WHY BOOKER T IS WAITING: I know Mom likes cozy mysteries and who could resist the cute dogs on this cover.  And you can't go wrong with a story that has a woman adopting 5 dogs.  Plus, there has been TOO much cat love on here lately!

FROM GOODREADS: Rory Chasen, manager of the Lucky Dog Boutique in Destiny, California, hopes her new line of good-luck doggy toys will be a hit, especially the stuffed rabbits with extra-large feet. The timing of the line’s debut proves ill-fated, though, as several local shops—including Rory’s—are ransacked and vandalized with spilled salt and other unlucky charms.

The most likely culprit is disgruntled real estate agent Flora Curtival, whose issues with the town give her a motive. But when Flora is murdered and one of Rory’s toy rabbits is found with the body, Rory needs all the luck she can get while trying to determine just who killed the superstitious vandal.

WHY CASSIUS IS WAITING:  This book features a doggy boutique which sounds like a fun place to visit (we go to the pet store every once in a while).  Also, BECAUSE BOOKER T TOLD ME TO!!!!!!
