Poisoned Pen Press Mystery (cozy)
An ideal mystery for animal lovers and mystery devotees. Brady does an excellent job of explaining veterinary terminology in a seamless way and taking readers into the field with her protagonist, Dr. Kate Turner. Dr. Kate is a woman on a mission, a woman who is usually immune to gossip, but not other tongue wagging like her patients share. However, once she discovers that the gossip trail is where the information she needs to solve the crime lurks, she deftly inserts herself into situations that yield the leads she needs. When a young man critically injured in an accident, which left him mentally challenged is accused of a murder, Dr. Kate is determined to prove that her young veterinary worker, Eugene, is innocent. First, she has to prove to the local police that the dead woman was not a suicide, but murder. A discreet intermingling of clues takes some serious thought to unveil.
