Publisher's Summary

If Lucy, the pregnant giant anteater from Belize, didn't kill the man found dead in her enclosure, who did? California zookeeper Teddy Bentley must find the real murderer before her furry friend is shipped off to another zoo in disgrace.Then another human bites the dust, the monkeys riot, the wolves go nuts - and that's just the beginning. Teddy's father, on the lam from the feds for embezzling millions, gets targeted by a local gangster. Her socialite mother, Caro, a former beauty queen who loathes Teddy's dangerous job, starts introducing her to "eligible bachelors"; but Teddy has already given her heart to Sheriff Joe Rejas, a migrant worker's son. Caro is not pleased.Zoo life, animal lore, and the leaky ups and downs of California central-coast houseboat living create a thrilling backdrop for murder.

Fun!

Enjoyable all the way through. Light. Fun. Loved the info about the animals. Especially loved the care and respect for them evident throughout. Teddy is great--I'll definitely want to hear more about her shenanigans : )

An excellent start to a new series

Betty Webb has done a wonderful job of crafting a cozy mystery series. The characters are well rounded and likable. Hillary Huber brings the characters to life with their own distinct voices. If you're a fan of cozy mysteries, you'll enjoy this one.
