From the New York Times bestselling author of Murder Most Howl comes the fourth Paws & Claws mystery...
In the pet-friendly town of Wagtail, Virginia, there’s no love lost when Holly Miller meets her match in a murderer...
          Holly and her grandmother, Oma, are working their tails off to prepare the Sugar Maple Inn for an upcoming matchmaking event for pet owners. While Holly has no interest in pairing up, Oma plans on playing Cupid and finding someone to warm her reluctant granddaughter’s heart.
          Unfortunately, one man Holly does meet is cold—dead cold—and he has a personal letter from Oma in his pocket. As suspicion is cast over the inn's guests, Holly—with the help of her furry friends, Trixie the Jack Russell and Twinkletoes the cat—must fetch the real killer, or she may soon have a date in court.

Delicious recipes for owners and pets included!  

Author Krista Davis has a genuine talent for crafting eccentric characters that draw you into her stories and hold on to your imagination long after you’ve finished the story.

MISSION IMPAWSIBLE, the latest release in her Paws and Claws Mystery Series, is a prime example of Davis’ crafty characters and tantalizing storylines. Combining lovable pets, an amiable pet-friendly town, a dash of romance, a murder mystery, and the love of family and friends makes this a well-balanced tale.

The characters are realistic, likable and well-developed. Their unique interaction is captivating. The story flow smoothly and at a good pace.

The twists and turns of the story will keep you on your toes. Even if you guess the killer’s identity, the path to their unveiling is well worth the read.

This is a charming story that will delight mystery lovers and hold a special place in the hearts of pet lovers.
