#ShareAReviewDay — To Kill A Labrador by Kassandra Lamb

shareareviewday2

Marcia has given me permission to kick off today’s Share A Review Day with a review for one of my books, To Kill A Labrador, A Marcia Banks and Buddy Mystery.

First, let me point out that the Labrador does NOT die. If you look at the titles of the books that follow this one in the series—Arsenic and Young Lacy, The Call of the Woof and my latest release, Patches in the Rye—the title makes more sense. 😉

For us writers, our books are like our children, and we shouldn’t have favorites, right? But I must confess that this book and its four-legged protagonist Buddy are particularly dear to me. Below is one of my favorite reviews.

5 out of 5 stars ~ by Diane, Excellent Mystery

This story kept me turning the pages from beginning to end. Marcia trains service dogs for veterans with PTSD. I was fascinated by the training. Buddy (a Labrador Retriever) and Jimmy were her first match. She was so proud of them, but then Jimmy is accused of killing his wife. The sheriff sends for Marcia to retrieve Buddy. She’s convinced that Jimmy couldn’t have murdered anyone.

While Marcia investigates, she riles up the townsfolk and intrigues the sheriff. A budding (no pun intended) romance between them confuses her, and she’s not sure she’s ready after her divorce. Engaging characters, a plot with many twists, and plenty of tension make this a memorable book. I’ll be reading more by this author.

BLURB

Marcia (pronounced Mar-see-a, not Marsha) likes to think of herself as a normal person, even though she has a rather abnormal vocation. She trains service dogs for combat veterans with PTSD. Then the former Marine owner of her first trainee is accused of murdering his wife, and Marcia gets sucked into an even more abnormal avocation–amateur sleuth.

Called in to dog-sit the Labrador service dog, Buddy, she’s outraged that his veteran owner is being presumed guilty until proven innocent. With Buddy’s help, she tries to uncover the real killer. Even after the hunky local sheriff politely tells her to butt out, Marcia keeps poking around. Until the killer finally pokes back.

  1. Thank you so much for being our guest today, Kass. So nice to read your lovely review and to pass it along to others. I hope you’ll continue to share other reviews, promos, and news with us, whenever possible. It’s always great to have you here! 🙂 ❤

  2. I was intrigued enough to peek at Kassandra on Goodreads and, when I read her own review for the first of her Kate Huntingdon mysteries, I knew I needed to give the series a go. So, I’ve got another book to add to my pile and I’ve a feeling I’ll be carrying on through the rest of the series and then slipping into the others!
