Cozy Review: A Taste Fur Murder (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Mystery) Mass Market Paperback



I've finished "A Taste Fur Murder" the 1st book in her Whiskey Tango Foxtrot series by Dixie Lyle.

Introducing an animal-loving Gal Friday with a telepathic cat, a shapeshifting dog, and a ghost of a chance of solving supernatural crime.

Meet Deirdre “Foxtrot” Lancaster. Trusted employee of eccentric zillionairess Zelda Zoransky, Foxtrot manages a mansion, a private zoo, and anything else that strikes her boss’s fancy. Her job title is Administrative Assistant, but chaos handler would be more accurate. Especially after she glimpses a giant ghost-beast in Zelda’s pet cemetery. For some strange reason, Foxtrot is seeing animal spirits. And, ready or not, in this mystery from Dixie Lyle, the fur’s about to hit the fan.

A TASTE FUR MURDER


Still reeling, Foxtrot comes home to find her cat Tango — her dead cat Tango — alive and well and communicating telepathically. But that’s not all: There’s an ectoplasmic dog named Tiny who changes breeds with a shake of his tail and can sniff out a clue like nobody’s business. So when a coworker drops dead while organizing closets, Tiny is on the case. Can Foxtrot and her new companions ferret out the killer among a menagerie of suspects — human and otherwise — before death takes another bite?

About the Author

Dixie Lyle, author A Taste Fur Murder from the Whiskey, Tango and Foxtrot Mysteries from St. Martin's Books, loves animals, mysteries, books, reading, words, bad puns (are there any other kind?) and once had a torrid summer romance with an entire library. Did I mention the books? Oh, and definitely doesn’t believe in the supernatural. Nope, not me. Hey, what was that sound? Where’s that spooky green glow coming from? Oh, hello, didn’t see you standing there in the corner, what with you being all see-through and everything. Want a cup of tea? Moan once for yes, twice for no. Allegations that Dixie Lyle has a goofy sense of humor are entirely unfounded, and should be forwarded to the unfounded and unlost department.

My Review:

Deirdre Foxtrot Lancaster is a personal assistant to Zelda Zoransky (ZZ) who spends her time in her employer's pet cemetery.  One day when she is relaxing she sees a flash of light and a dark and large menacing form that sends her scurrying from the cemetery.

Then a cat appears and she realizes it's her childhood pet Tango has returned with a ghostly canine partner Tiny.  She can also see ghostly spirits and communicate with them.

I really liked the byplay between Tango and Tiny it was hilarious and they go at it like a typical cat and dog.  Tango reminds me so much like my cat with her supremacy and snarkiness.  Tiny reminds me so much of my dog with his strong alpha traits and his dedication to his job.

4/5

Thanks St. Martin's Press for sending me this book to review, greatly appreciated!
