Publisher's Summary

Holly Miller's life has gone to the dogs. She has no job, her boyfriend's former flame is sniffing around, and a scruffy but lovable Jack Russell terrier is scattering crumbs all over her borrowed car. Just when she thought things couldn't get worse, a troubling phone call about her grandmother sends her rushing home to the family inn on Wagtail Mountain.

The staff - and a frisky calico kitten named Twinkletoes - adopts Holly and her new dog on arrival. Someone in this friendly town is bad to the bone, though. One of the employees at the inn has been killed in a hit-and-run accident, which is looking anything but accidental. Now Holly and her furry companions will have to nose out the murderer before someone else gets muzzled.

    "Great book, bad narrator"

    The story was great, but the narrator sounded like she was reading a children's book to a group of toddlers.

    "A Decent Cozy Mystery"

    First, I need to respond to the user who really slammed the narrator. S/he must be truly spoiled by the multitudes of talented voice actors used in so many Audible books. The narrator is quite acceptable--really! I've experienced MUCH worse in monotone voices who sound like they've just learned to read. Jeanie K is very easy to listen to!

    The story is intriguing with a lot of room to grow. It's fairly easy to forecast what's likely to happen in the long term relationships. Cozy mystery is the right term. Book candy of the nicest kind!

    "Do not waste your money!"

    Worst narrator I have heard in a LONG TIME!
    Totally amateurish and juvenile. I have never written such a negative review and hope not to feel it necessary to do so again!

    "Love this new series"

    I enjoy Krista Davis's Domestic Diva series and I also enjoy this one as well. There's a lot going on and a lot of characters, but Davis does a good job weaving the story together so the reader does not get lost. I can't wait for the next book in this series to be released.

    "Another Go To Author"

    Once and awhile you just stumble upon something good and this series is really something good. A rescued dog, a cozy mystery, an adorable cat, a handsome childhood friend, and a wonderful grandma! How could things go wrong. Well, there is this pesky "fiancé" who keeps hanging around. A "fiancé" whom Holly needs to dump! Give these books a try, I don't think you will be disappointed!

    "HORRIBLE HORRIBLE NARRATOR!"
    What would have made Murder, She Barked better?

    A narrator who knows how to read, interpret characters


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I'm not sure because the narration was so bad.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator was whiny, like a screeching mouse.


    What character would you cut from Murder, She Barked?

    I'm not sure because the narration was so bad.


    Any additional comments?

    I've enjoyed Krista Davis' novels. Looked forward to this new series but OMG, Jeanie Kanaly totally ruined it. I think there's a good storyline in there, but with Kanaly's narration, I had to keep rewinding the book. She gave me a headache with every chapter.

    "Poor direction and narration"
    What disappointed you about Murder, She Barked?

    The narrator sounds like she is trying, however, sentences are run together and there are awkward pauses. The story is OK, but the poor direction for the the narrator makes it hard to get into the story.
