Deadly Dog Days (A Dog Days Mystery #1) by Jamie M. Blair

New to the historic town of Metamora, Indiana, Cameron Cripps-Hayman is looking to make friends with her neighbors. What she isn’t looking for is one of their bodies floating in the canal. 

When she and her estranged husband, the town sheriff, are both named suspects for the murder, Cameron takes solving the crime into her own hands, teaming up with her eccentric co-workers who dub themselves The Metamora Action Agency. 

As if hunting for a murderer with two high school geniuses, the town drunk, and an elderly kleptomaniac isn’t hard enough, Cameron adopts the five mangy guard dogs of her deceased neighbor. But maybe a stint at playing gatekeeper is just what she needs to come face-to-face with the killer and save another neighbor from being the next victim.

My review:
A fun new cozy mystery from new to me author Jamie M. Blair. Moving to a new place is always tough and has placed a heavy strain on Cameron Cripps-Hayman’s marriage. But Cameron is making the best of it and carrying on. The town is dying a slow death and she seems determined to nip that in the bud. She is surrounded by an eclectic group of misfits that will steal your heart and pretty much anything else lying around. When Cameron finds the body of a young woman rumored to have been seeing Cam’s estranged husband she is immediately a suspect. She is not going to take that lying down. With the help of her silly friends and the deceased’s pack of dogs Cam is a rather inept sleuth but determination and a big heart make up for a lot. This is a really sweet and fun read. I look forward to more from Cam in the future.
