The Tail Waggin’ Winterfest is the highlight of the season in the famously pet-friendly Pocono Mountains town of Sylvan Creek. But despite attractions like an ice sculpture display, a dogsled race, and gourmet hot chocolate, Daphne Templeton finds herself annoyed by TV producer Lauren Savidge, who’s filming the festivities. She’s critical, controlling, and as chilly as the January air. Daphne would like to tell her to go jump in a lake—and as a matter of fact, that’s exactly what they’re both going to do . . .
It’s the first-ever polar bear plunge in Lake Wallapawakee, and Daphne and Lauren are among the eighty or so people who charge into the frigid water to raise funds for animals in need. Daphne makes it back to shore—with the help of a mysterious St. Bernard—but Lauren is dragged out stone cold dead. Now, with her trusty basset hound Socrates at her side, Daphne intends to assist Detective Jonathan Black in his investigation—whether he wants her to or not . . .
Includes recipes for homemade pet treats!

*I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

Blake has done it again by writing an absolutely incredible cozy mystery novel that I was unable to put down. Daphne is gearing up to open her pet great bakery just as the winter festival is due to start. She signs up to do the polar plunge but things go horrible wrong when a women turns up dead. What follows is an excellent investigation into what happened that includes not only the awesome sidekick Socrates but a new canine friend of legends as well. The characters are easy to get attached to and the writing is smooth. The animals had a tough of whimsy that made me giggle (especially the costumes). This is a must read for fans of animal cozy msyteries. I loved every minute so I give it 5/5 stars.
