About the Book

Ridgeway Rescue Mysteries can be read in 1-2 hours. Perfect for when you're waiting for an appointment or just want a fast read. Don't miss out on this quick, clean, cozy mystery that will keep you guessing until the end! It's St. Patrick's Day and 20-year-old Emma Wright is working hard at training five-month-old Molly, her foster puppy, to become a therapy dog. But her training coach and neighbor gets an emergency call, cutting the lesson short, and Emma volunteers to pick up her daughter at a St. Patrick's Day concert in town. When Emma arrives, the concert has just finished up, and the teenage girls are visiting with the band. Then the lead singer stumbles and falls to the ground, dead. Emma becomes the only level head in the crowd and calls for help. When the Sheriff and Colby arrive, they investigate it as a potential accident. But Emma finds subtle clues that something more sinister is going on. Did the leader of the band die in an accident, or was it murder?  

My Review

Quick Read for Mystery Lovers and Animal Lovers.  While I read a lot--I do not always have the time nor attention span for a long, full-length novel. I love short stories and novellas because I always seem to have a bit of time (usually while waiting for a child at an extracurricular activity).  Murder on St. Patrick's Day is truly a quick, hour or so read that has a little more depth than a simple short story.  The author creates an entertaining, clean mystery with frequent mentions of Molly, a rescued, foster dog, that appeals to all ages of cozy mystery fans.

Would I recommend Murder on St. Patrick's Day by P. Creeden?  I always enjoy the author's characters and her cozy mystery writing style.  While the story does offer a short mystery from murder to solution--everything may be wrapped up a little too quickly for some readers. This is a simple mystery with the cozy mystery "realism" of Murder, She Wrote or Diagnosis Murder where the police (sheriff's department) follow the lead and insights of an amateur, slightly more observant, "detective".  Entertaining read with likeable characters--and, of course, a lovable dog for short story fans.

About the Author

P. Creeden is a horse trainer from Virginia, but writing is her therapy. In her fiction, she creates worlds that are both familiar and strange, often pulling the veil between dimensions. She becomes the main character in each of her stories, and because she has ADD, she will get bored if she pretends to be one person for too long.
