Review of A Dashie Discovery


Hi, I’m Leslie Winters, and when I left Houston for my hometown of Pecan, Texas, I needed a do-over in a big way. So I set up shop in my dad’s old shed and took on clients less likely to run off with now-cheating exes.

My pet-grooming business turned out to be a pretty fun way to make ends meet… until I dropped off two tough Pomeranian clients at their home, and found their dead owner waiting for us.

Then local law enforcement finds me at the scene, and my dachshund finds the murder weapon right in front of them. Oh, boy!

Now I’m out to solve the crime before a certain dreamy detective tries to collar me for the crime. But someone is on my tail, and they’re making it clear they don’t want me to investigate.

After a few close shaves, I’m now more determined than ever to solve this case. Can I figure out whodunnit before I wind up in deep do-do or worse?


The characters are well developed and well rounded.  Leslie came back to her hometown when her ex cheated on her.  She is living with her parents and her Dacshund Bandit.  She has a pet-grooming business that is doing pretty good. But when she goes to drop two of her clients, she finds the owner dead. She is considered a person of interest so she decides to find out who the real killer is.

The writing style did not flow as smoothly as it sometimes does.  

The book could have used more editing.  The author is very talented 

in her descriptive writing and this made the book more enjoyable.  The mystery is well plotted and it was not easily solved.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a real crafted cozy mystery.  I plan on reading the next book in the series.
