Death by Chocolate Lab by Bethany Blake is the first book in the Lucky Paws Petsitting Mystery series. Readers are introduced to Daphne and her sister, Piper, who seem as different as night and day. Daphne is a free spirit who owns the Lucky Paws Petstting company. Piper is the extra responsible owner of a veterinary practice. When Piper's ex-boyfriend is found murdered, Piper is the prime suspect. Daphne and her canine companions - serious Socrates and hyper Artie - set out to help Detective Black solve the murder. Daphne and her friend, Moxie, are wonderful characters in every sense. While the writing style is a bit weak, the series has potential for growth. I look forward to reading more by Mrs. Blake!
