Book Description, Modified from Back Cover:
In the pet-friendly town of Wagtail, Virginia, Holly and her grandmother, Oma, are working their tails off to prepare the Sugar Maple Inn for an upcoming matchmaking event for pet owners. While Holly has no interest in pairing up, Oma plans on playing Cupid and finding someone to warm her reluctant granddaughter's heart.

Unfortunately, one man Holly does meet is cold, dead cold, and he has a personal letter from Oma in his pocket. As suspicion is cast over the inn's guests, Holly, with the help of her furry friends, Trixie the Jack Russell and Twinkletoes the cat, must fetch the real killer, or she may soon have a date in court.

My Review:
Mission Impawsible is a cozy mystery. It's the fourth book in a series. You don't need to read the previous books to understand this story, and this book didn't spoil the previous ones.

The pet antics were fun, as usual, and Holly is generally a mature and nice person. I'm not seeing her attraction to a guy who is afraid of killers as something that could last very long, though. The mystery was clue based and could be guessed from the clues. It took a bit to narrow down the suspects as the meaning of the clues wasn't always clear. I wasn't completely certain I was correct about whodunit until nearly the end. Nice!

There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this interesting and fun mystery.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.

Is this, as the cover suggests, the story of forbidden love? What about the children?

Well, it's an odd cover. I guess they felt the need to get the heroine's pets on the cover despite the matchmaking theme. The dog actually gets attached to another dog, not the cat, and I don't think any children are going to result...
