I really enjoyed the first Mae December mystery. I found Mae a fascinating character, with depth and intrigue, and I was looking forward to tagging along with her and all her canine friends on another mystery.
Mae’s second adventure is even better than the first. In the first book, Mae alludes to the fact to July’s first love, but it doesn’t give away any details. In this second installment, the whole sad story is revealed. July and Tommy were in love and July really thought she and Tommy were going to get married and live their happily-ever-afters. However he went missing and that was the end of their relationship. I like how Lia Farrell has picked up this loose thread in July’s life and made a mystery out of it.
The mystery was quite suspenseful, while still fitting accurately within the cozy genre. If you’re looking for a compelling mystery, then this series is for you. I was kept guessing right till the end trying to figure it out before Mae and Sheriff Ben did.
Lia Farrell writes very character-driven mysteries. All my favourite characters from One Dog Too Many are back and there is a new canine to love. “Tater” is Mae’s new corgi puppy and she’s just adorable! Animal lovers everywhere will fall in love with Tater.
Two Dogs Lie Sleeping was another fantastic whodunnit from Lia Farrell. This series is now one of my firm favourites and I’m really excited to see where she takes the series next.
