Friday Memes: A Taste Fur Murder by Dixie Lyle

Happy Friday everybody!
Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader. The Friday 56 is hosted at Freda's Voice. Check out the links above for the rules and for the posts of the participants each week. Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week I am spotlighting A Taste Fur Murder by Dixie Lyle. I got this eARC from St. Martin's Press via NetGalley. Here is the description of this Feb. 25 release:
Introducing an animal-loving Gal Friday with a telepathic cat, a shapeshifting dog, and a ghost of a chance of solving supernatural crime…

Meet Deirdre “Foxtrot” Lancaster. Trusted employee of eccentric zillionairess Zelda Zoransky, Foxtrot manages a mansion, a private zoo, and anything else that strikes her boss’s fancy. Her job title is Administrative Assistant, but chaos handler would be more accurate. Especially after she glimpses a giant ghost-beast in Zelda’s pet cemetery. For some strange reason, Foxtrot is seeing animal spirits. And, ready or not, in this mystery from Dixie Lyle, the fur’s about to hit the fan…


Still reeling, Foxtrot comes home to find her cat Tango—her dead cat Tango—alive and well and communicating telepathically. But that’s not all: There’s an ectoplasmic dog named Tiny who changes breeds with a shake of his tail…and can sniff out a clue like nobody’s business. So when a coworker drops dead while organizing closets, Tiny is on the case. Can Foxtrot and her new companions ferret out the killer among a menagerie of suspects—human and otherwise—before death takes another bite?
Ever had a job that threatened to drive you straight into a loony bin?
Friday 56:
I looked down at the tablet in Estevez's hands, but it took me a second to understand what I was seeing. "It's got on onboard camera, too?"

  4. I definitely could relate to the opening sentence! But the telepathic cat and ectoplasmic dog don't sound like "characters" I'd enjoy reading about. I guess it depends on how the author handles the characters. It sure sounds like a unique book.
    Here's the link to my Friday post: CAKE.

  5. Like the beginning...who couldn't relate to that observation LOL. Thanks for visiting my blog. Happy reading!

  6. I really want to start this one soon. It sounds wonderful.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. A telepathic cat and shapeshifting dog? This sounds adorable!

  8. To that beginning.... yes! :-)
