Kristan “Stan” Connor loves concocting tasty organic treats for dogs and cats—and she also loves her fiancé, pub owner Jake McGee. But she’s not so enthusiastic about finding a dead body at her own bachelorette party . . .
Stan and Jake’s wedding will soon take place on the town green in Frog Ledge, Connecticut, followed by a reception at their beloved Irish pub filled with friends, family, and their four favorite canine companions. Stan just has to endure the traditional girls’ night out first. Male strippers jumping out of gigantic cakes aren’t her preferred entertainment. But the hired hottie never gets around to taking it all off . . . because someone takes him out first with one of Stan’s kitchen knives. A heartbroken Stan recognizes the victim as one of the delivery men from the local farm—who must have been moonlighting for some extra cash. Now the guest list has turned into a suspect list—and Stan’s making a vow to find the killer . . .
Includes Gourmet Pet Food Recipes!

Murder She Meowed
Seriously. I knew this stupid bachelorette party was a bad idea, but does anyone listen to me? Especially anyone in my family? Of course not. And now I have a dead guy in a fake cake in my store two weeks before my wedding. And even worse – I knew the dead guy. He delivered my organic farm orders. He was a sweet kid, and I can’t help but feel like this is all my fault. Or at least my sister Caitlyn’s. If she hadn’t pushed for this party, he never would’ve agreed to be the stripper who pops out of the cake. He didn’t even get a chance to pop out of the cake in his fancy underwear.
I’m marrying Jake McGee soon. He’s the love of my life and I can’t wait. If it was up to me, I’d pack our stuff and take off to a remote island to get married today. I was never one for big ceremonies and all that. Honestly, I’m doing it for all our friends in town, and Jake’s family of course. This wedding is a big deal in town – the local newspaper is even putting it on the front page. It’s partly because people love us, and partly because Jake getting married is a big deal. No one ever thought it would happen, since he was so devoted to Frog Ledge and his pub, which was a deal breaker in a lot of his other relationships. I’m glad I was the one who made it happen. And that I love Frog Ledge as much as he does. I can’t think of a better place for us to live our life together. I kind of wish people would stop killing each other, though. It kind of brings the value of the neighborhood down.
Which brings me back to the latest problem. Everyone wants me to forget about this mess and focus on my wedding, which my mother is trying to rejigger into what she wants it to (a big church affair and a garden reception at her fancy house where she lives with her new husband the mayor). I so don’t want that. And we’re kind of at a stalemate.
But I feel a sense of duty to figure out who killed Perry Puck. Like I said, he was a good kid, and there’s also a connection – he was dating Jake’s little sister’s best friend. She is devastated, and Jake feels terrible for her. As usual, Jake’s other sister, our resident state trooper, is on the case. But I want to help. And despite the fact that Perry was a good kid, there seem to be a lot of people who want him dead. But who would actually do it?
It’s a lot to take on, but at least it gets my mind off all the things my mother wants me to do that I don’t want to do. Like hire some millennial wedding planner and shop for some fancy dress. And then I have to get my shop cleaned up and reopened and that seems very daunting also…and oh yeah, I forgot to mention, I think I’m being stalked.
But I’m focused on getting this murder solved, then having our wedding in the pub like we want to with all our dogs present. Then we can jump on a plane and go to Ireland for our honeymoon, which I can’t wait for.
As long as we get through all this unscathed…
About the Author
Liz Mugavero has been writing stories since she could hold a pen. Before that, she would tell them to anyone who would listen (not many at the time). After deciding early on she would write books for a living, she practiced by writing bad, angst-filled poems, short stories and even a storyline for a soap opera–all by age 15. She never wavered from her goals despite all the usual questions including, “So are you going to be an English teacher with that degree in English?” or, “That writing thing sounds nice, but how are you REALLY going to make a living?”
She went on to get a master’s in writing and publishing and spent time in journalism, PR, and presently, corporate communications. And she’s confident this writing thing IS the way to make a living.
Aside from writing, she loves animals (has a houseful), the beach, reading other writers’ masterpieces and Starbucks coffee.
