Review of Left Fur Dead

On Fur Bridge Farm, Jules cares for rescued rabbits. But when a killer strikes, she’ll need a rabbit to rescue her . . .

Juliette “Jules” Bridge prides herself on the tender rehabilitation she provides for injured or abused rabbits on her New Hampshire rescue farm, but she has a very special relationship with one bunny in particular. Bun is a black-and-white rabbit who happens to have the ability to communicate through mental telepathy. Once she got over the shock, Jules found her furry friend had a lot to say.

One frigid March morning on their walk together, Bun spots a body. The police identify the frozen stiff as Arthur Freeman, aka Arty the Mime. Jules and Arty knew each other on the children’s party circuit, where he’d perform magic tricks and she had an educational rabbit petting pen. With Bun egging her on, Jules decides it’s time they hop to it and put their heads together to discover who silenced the mime. But their investigation leads them down a rabbit hole of more suspects and lies, while a killer sets a trap for them… (Goodreads)



The characters were well developed and well rounded. Jules is a hardworking smart woman who is very proud of Fur Bridge Farm. She loves animals and will do whatever it takes to keep the rabbits in her care safe and well cared for. I liked the premise of the story, I do not know of very many other cozy mysteries that center around bunnies. Bun, Jules telepathic talking bunny, was a very interesting character.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and I felt like I was at the farm, watching all of the action taking place. At times I felt like there was too much information and repetition. I did not need to keep reading about all of the barn chores and what the rabbits were eating. That is only my opinion and other readers may not agree.

The mystery was carried on well throughout the book. I was pretty sure who the culprit was about halfway through the book, but I did not know the why. I felt the reason for the murder was a little thin but again that is only my opinion.

For the first book in a series, I thought this book was good and the series has a lot of potential. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery and I will definitely read the next one.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher, Kensington Books, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.

  1. Thanks. I have been waiting for a review that I trust on this one to decide whether or not to buy. The few others that I have caught were just summaries, not reviews. I am sure there are others that I missed but I sure am glad that I caught this one in my email!
