A broken tree branch.
A dead body.
An ambitious personal assistant.
An unfaithful husband.

Was it murder or simply an unfortunate accident?

A lot of people resented Amelia Prescott, the grande dame of marketing agencies, because of her success. But did someone resent her enough to murder her?

That becomes the job of Sheriff Davis and Brigid – to find out if Amelia’s death was an accident or a carefully thought out murder.

Confrontations can get dicey. Good thing Brigid has a 125-pound Newfoundland to help her.

This is the sixth book in the popular Cottonwood Springs Cozy Mystery Series by a two-time USA Today Bestselling Author. (Goodreads)


The characters are well developed and well rounded. Brigid is a smart hardworking woman. She has passed the tests needed for her to work at the sheriff’s department and right away her assistance is needed. I really enjoyed getting to know her and her husband, Linc, and their other family and friends. They all seem to care about each other and are willing to do whatever is needed to help each other.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read. I really liked that the murder took place in the prologue and then the suspects were presented in the subsequent chapters. That allowed the reader to learn more about the suspects and their motives. The mystery was well plotted and carried on well throughout the entire book. I was not sure who the culprit was until the reveal.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy. Pick up a copy and enjoy.
