Publisher's Summary

Holly Miller doesn't believe in spirits, but the Sugar Maple Inn is filled with guests who do. The TV series in development, Apparition Apprehenders, has descended on Wagtail's annual Halloween festivities to investigate supernatural local legends, and Holly has her hands full showing the ghost hunters a scary-fun time.

But the frights turn real when Holly's Jack Russell, Trixie, and kitten, Twinkletoes, find a young woman drowned in the Wagtail Springs Hotel's bathhouse - the spot of the town's most infamous haunting. The crime scene is eerily similar to the creepy legend, convincing Holly that the death wasn't just accidental. Now she'll have to race to catch a flesh-and-blood killer before someone else in town gives up the ghost.

Thoroughly Enjoyable!

I adore the premise of this series and wish a town and hotel of this caliber really existed in the Virginia mountains. It's not hard to imagine all of the special ways clients and pets are treated. It sounds so fun! The mysteries have kept me stymied. The author keeps the path just complicated enough so that it's not easy to deduce the answer. The characters are fun, and others are fun to dislike. All the makings if a very enjoyable series. I look forward to more Wag Tail mysteries! Write faster!! ;-)

Difficult to get through due to narrator

Would you try another book from Krista Davis and/or Jeanie Kanaley?

I love Krista Davis books so yes but not narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator sounded like an elderly lady from deep in the Appalacian mountains. Worse she takes inappropriate pauses and strange accents on words and in strange places within sentences. It was difficult for me to get through this book and I had to make a conscious effort to get beyond the narrator to the story.

Any additional comments?

Really a shame that the narrator made the story so difficult to get through. I love Krista Davis cozy mysteries and have listened to every audiobook in her other series. I will probably read the rest of this series instead of listening.

The Ghost 👻 and Mrs Mewer

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story was fun and the naration was very well done ✔. But this will be my last book because I cannot spend the kind of money you require now. The fun is gone. I will not be listening to Audiobooks again unless the price comes down. To spend $15:00 to $20:00 for an 8hr book is robbery.

Sure wish Wagtail were a real place

This series is a light read, intriguing, and entertaining. The characters are not simple, nor are they overly complex. The mysteries are just intriguing enough to keep me wanting more. Sometimes Holly does not pick up on the simplest clues, but it makes her more believable. The narrator adds to the characters personalities as well, giving Oma, (the grandmother) a delightful German accent (reminiscent of my own German grandmother). There is a bit of romance included, also. The town of Wagtail and the descriptions of the mountain community, and old historic hotel has a permanent spot in my dreamworld. I wish it were a real place, where the pets are given some attention, rather than viewed as nuisances.

Love Wagtail

Another nice cozy mystery. I love these books. Holly and her pets solve everything clean and neat. I just wish the ex finance would leave. She just doesn't need him around. I can't wait for Audible to get more of her books on their website. It is hard to wait, ya know?

Charming Series

I love this series. The narrator does a perfect job too. I wish I could live in a town that caters to dogs and cats as much as Wagtail does!

Love Krista Davis, Not a Fan of the Narrator

I really want to like this series, but it is tough getting past the voice of the narrator. She sounds very kid-like and it’s so tough to tell the difference between the various characters. Additionally, she mispronounces numerous words (such as brooch). I just keep wishing the narrator who does Krista’s Domestic Diva series did this one too.

Another good cozy by Davis

Like other books by Krista Davis, I enjoyed the storyline and characters. I like her Diva series better. but this has been a fun change.

That said, I'm really disappointed with the narration. I find this narrator to always sound both saccharine sweet and exasperated simultaneously.
