Murder Strikes a Pose (A Downward Dog Mystery) by Tracy Weber Review

Title: Murder Strikes a Pose
Series: A Downward Dog Mystery
Author: Tracy Weber
Genre: Cozy Mystery
Pages: 290
Price: $8.69
Thoughts: A fast-paced cozy mystery.

Book Synopsis:

When George and Bella—a homeless alcoholic and his intimidating German shepherd—disturb the peace outside her studio, yoga instructor Kate Davidson’s Zen-like calm is stretched to the breaking point. Kate tries to get rid of them before Bella scares the yoga pants off her students. Instead, the three form an unlikely friendship.

One night Kate finds George’s body behind her studio. The police dismiss his murder as a drug-related street crime, but she knows George wasn’t a dealer. So Kate starts digging into George’s past while also looking for someone to adopt Bella before she’s sent to the big dog park in the sky. With the murderer nipping at her heels, Kate has to work fast or her next Corpse Pose may be for real.


I have to agree with other reviewers in that I love that the main character, Kate, isn't perfect. As much as she wants to be a laid back person who can adapt and remain mellow, she fails miserably. She lets a ill-mannered dog get under her skin and acts inappropriately. However, the dog is soon in her care and things are far from laid back. Can she overcome all the stress, find a murderer, and save a dog from an unfortunate fate?

Murder Strikes a Pose is a delightful cozy mystery that is fast-paced and a must for dog lovers. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

A Girl and Her Kindle was provided a copy of Murder Strikes a Pose in exchange for an honest review.
