A review by yetanothersusan
Hunting Hour, by Margaret Mizushima


Detective (Mattie) Cobb is in love with the town vet, Cole Walker. But he is still in love with his ex-wife. That means little when his daughter goes missing days after another young girl is found dead. Though very much too personally involved, Cobb and Robo, her amazingly awesome and gorgeous canine partner, pull out all the stops to help track down the missing girl. Like the previous 2 books in this series, Ms. Mizushima infuses the story with information about animal care and dog training. Not so much that it gets boring, but enough to feel realistic. Unlike the previous 2 books in this series, it wasn't as easy to discover who was taking the girls. Ms. Mizushima's plots are getting deeper and more evolved, and her characters' lives are getting more complicated, but her writing style still remains straight forward and a refreshing change from all the twists and turns so overly used in most books today. I have enjoyed reading these cozies and look forward to the next one!
