A Killer Retreat - Tracy Weber (2 giveaways!)

4 stars!

ABOUT THE BOOK -
When Kate Davidson gets an offer to teach yoga classes to wedding guests at the Elysian Springs resort, she jumps at the opportunity, even though it means being forced to endure the wedding ceremony of the center's two caretakers.

Avoiding the M-word turns out to be the least of Kate's problems when a wedding guest is found floating face-down in the resort's hot tub, shortly after a loud, public (and somewhat embarrassing) fight with Kate. The police pick Kate as their number-one suspect, so she's forced to team up with boyfriend Michael, best friend Rene, and German shepherd sidekick Bella to find the real killer. But they'll have to solve the murder before the police arrest Kate, or her next gig may last a lifetime--behind bars.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR -
Tracy Weber is the author of the award-winning Downward Dog Mysteries series featuring yoga teacher Kate and her feisty German shepherd, Bella. Tracy loves sharing her passion for yoga and animals in any form possible.
Tracy and her husband live in Seattle with their challenging yet amazing German shepherd Tasha. When she’s not writing, Tracy spends her time teaching yoga, walking Tasha, and sipping Blackthorn cider at her favorite ale house.

MY THOUGHTS-
This was a fun and quirky chick-Lit/Mystery. I am not a huge mystery fan but when they are written like this, I like them! I didn't quite love this one as much as I did the first one "Murder Strikes a Pose", but I still liked this one enough to make me want to read the next one. This is an author who knows how to write a great fun little mystery!

I am not really into Yoga (my daughter is!) and I am not into dogs, so if you love either of these things you would probably really love this series. You don't have to read them in order, but I do recommend it. It just makes it easier to know what is going on. It is not a continuing story but she does use the same characters in different scenarios.

For some reason I didn't love Kate, the main character, as much in this one. I mean she is suppose to be fun and quirky and a tad air-headed, but I found her to be slightly annoying at times. I guess that just added to the story though. Maybe she was really suppose to be that way. Nevertheless there is great character development! And you do get to know Kate and her friends very well.

Thank you Partners in Crime for sending me this book in exchange for my honest review!
