Poodle Versus The Yeti (Cottage Country Cozy Mysteries Book 4) by [Anne Shillolo]Extra, extra! Rocco the Nasty Small Poodle is running down clues.
Zora Flynn is a 50-something newspaper publisher and reluctant participant in a promotional camping weekend. Can it possibly be worse? She and Rocco, her pampered prince of a poodle, are trapped on a remote island with a dead body, a Yeti roaming the woods, and a colorful cast of local business owners.
Once the castaways are rescued and back on the job in the picturesque cottage country town of Williamsport, the Yeti sightings start. Not to mention, a vandal strikes, spray-painting accusations of murder across the windows of Zora’s paper and the other downtown storefronts.
Each fall when the leaves in the highlands change to brilliant colors, Williamsport welcomes thousands of visitors. A high-profile murder case could definitely be bad for business. Rocco is hot on the trail of the Yeti, and Zora and the reporters are working overtime to solve the mystery and avert an economic disaster.
(It probably goes without saying, but the Poodle Versus… series is good, clean fun, except for the occasional suspicious death. No graphic violence, sex or swearing.)  (Amazon)

Twice the Crime This Time (Trailer Park Tales Book 2) by [Maggie Pill]Maggie Pill’s characters seem like people we know: In The Sleuth Sisters Series, it’s siblings we love but can’t always relate to. In the Trailer Park Tales Series, we meet the residents of an RV park in Florida: fussy husbands, smart-aleck wives, grumpy neighbors, conspiracy lovers, and more. The residents of B-Bird Over-55 RV Park are mostly snow-birds, so for months each year they face the joys and irritations of living in tight spaces with people from all over the place. Usually they cope with politeness and good humor, but at times it’s difficult. In the first story, Once Upon a Trailer Park, a murder on the property put residents on alert and one woman in deadly danger.

In this second story of the series, our heroes are presented with two crime threads, one hot and one cold. The cold case is half a century old, which is okay, since many residents remember those days like they were yesterday. In 1967, on a warm night in Nashville, Tennessee, someone committed two brutal murders. It’s reported that person now lives in the park, hiding under a new identity. When local police ask Ron and Julie Rogers to try to find out who it is, they enlist the help of their friends, intending to ask each man in the park where he was on the date the crime occurred.

The other crime is ongoing and more annoyance than concern. Rumor says someone is cruising the streets in the evenings and peeping in windows, but rumor is often wrong. Ignoring the peeper sightings, the sleuths concentrate on finding the eighty-year-old killer. Neck-deep in suspects, they have no idea how dangerous things are going to get for one of them.  (Amazon)

Things get worse when the target criminal’s wife recognizes one of the cops as her policeman ex-boyfriend. Will she rat them out or keep their dangerous secret?

Greg Hallstead lost the championship buckle to Terry McCaskill at this year’s Policemen’s Rodeo. Now, he’s partnered with his rival, working undercover at a Florida resort, while sparks fly between them at every turn.

Greg & Terry are unconvincing as a brother/sister duo, but even less convincing are the cops pretending to be their “parents:” a gay “dad” and sexy, flirty “mom.”

Still, the four cops may survive, if the resort owner’s wife, Emerald, doesn’t reveal she dated Greg years ago. And if a hotel hooker doesn’t recognize him from past arrests. And if “dad” and “mom” will stop flirting with the same man.

If they can’t keep their secrets, all four cops will soon be shark bait off the Florida coast.  (Amazon)
