Review: Sniffing Out Murder by Maria Grazia Swan

Mina runs a animal rescue and when one of her rescues is found that had been adopted, she tries to find out what happened.

The owner is dead -- a strange accident where she was run over by her own car.  (Which I would have once thought absurd for the cops to believe - but after Anton Yeltin's terrible, death.. not now).

The dead woman left two sons behind, and as Mina and her coworkers and friends help the boys to go on with their lives, AND keep their beloved pet, they find that it really wasn't an accident.

I did really enjoy the story.  As a mystery though, there really were not suspects or clues per se.  More of a - she knew who it was and how would she prove it?

That said, one of the things I loved about the book was how the amateur sleuth actually questioned her involvement and WHY she felt compelled to be so involved.  I thought that was a nice change from just having a sleuth follow an absurd reason to get involved which happens in too many cozies IMHO.

Anyway, really enjoyed.
