This was a very pleasant cozy mystery. The characters were realistic and likable and the small community that Kate lives in was the perfect place for murder. I bought the next book before I finished the first one.

A good start to a new series
Eileen Brady seems to have found a good new amateur detective, in Dr. Kate Turner, a veterinarian. Early in the story, she discovers a murder, and because there are no satisfying solutions turning up in traditional police channels, her own curiosity keeps her digging to find the truth.
The characters (human and animal)are interesting and well-drawn, and hopefully will continue into future stories. The narration was okay, Caroline Shaffer does various voices pretty well, though I sometimes felt her inflection was off in a few places. It was a book I had not expected to enjoy as much as I did, but the plot moved along, with a nice balance of conversation, details, never dull, and always kept me wondering till the end. I loved the the animal characters--patients of Dr. Kate's, fun and charming in their own way. I hope this will develop into a long-lasting series.
