Busty Cat and I have just finished reading Poisoned Ground, Sandra Parshall's brand new Rachel Goddard Mystery. As I promised a few days ago, Busty Cat has returned to review it with me.
I found Poisoned Ground to be very professionally written. It flows nicely. I like the way Sandra writes in shorter chapters. It's a style that keeps me turning the pages.
character, Rachel Goddard, the veterinarian, doesn't go around town being nosy and trying to solve crimes all by herself. She's married to the sheriff, and he does most of the investigating, which is more realistic.
Busty Cat: I liked that it's not too cozy, and not too scary.
Lilly Faye: I agree, it's just right.
I liked that Sandra included lots of dogs and cats, and even birds and rabbits in the story.
Lilly Faye: The mystery is well plotted, with plenty of red herrings. It kept me guessing 'til the very end.
Busty Cat: I love red herrings. Yum!
Dizzie: Hey, this book sounds good! Can I have it now that you two girls have finished reading it?
Book Rating: Two paws up. Highly recommended!
Busty Cat: Just a minute, Lilly Faye. We aren't done here. There's still the matter of my payment. Here's my invoice:
Lilly Faye: But Busty, I only have one can left!
Busty Cat: Hand it over.
Take my advice: if you like mysteries, get yourself a copy of Poisoned Ground, and always read the fine print when dealing with a cat.
