The Paws and Claws Mysteries

When Oma (German for grandma), asked me to be her partner at the Sugar Maple Inn on Wagtail Mountain, I was thrilled. I love the inn almost as much as I love Oma. And I knew she needed a break. Running an inn is a 24/7 job. Guests have needs in the middle of the night sometimes. And no two days are alike. You never know what might happen next.
Oma and her best friend, Rose, are finally off on a cruise! I was beginning to wonder if Oma would ever trust me enough to leave the inn for a vacation. I'm determined to prove that I'm capable of taking care of everything. We have a full house because Wagtail is throwing a murder mystery weekend called Murder Most Howl. I know that sounds dangerous because we've had a couple of real murders in Wagtail recently, but I can handle pretend "murders." This should be a snap. The ladies from the Thursday Night Cloak and Dagger Club will be arriving soon. With a name like that, they have to be fun! And the Tredwells are coming to adopt a dog through the If the Dog Fits program that allows them to spend a weekend with a dog before they adopt it.
Cross your fingers for me. I need everything to go smoothly!
By the way, you know how I said you never know what might happen next? I walked into the inn library the other day and caught Trixie and Twinketoes singing! You can see a larger version here.
Trixie and Twinkletoes appear to have gotten hold of two copies of the book that they'd like to give away. Leave a comment here with your email address so they can get your mailing address if you win one! Good luck!
