    The Dog Who Knew Too Much is the 6th book in the popular Paws and Claws Mystery series. I always love a visit to Wagtail, a completely pet-friendly town. I love the characters, the setting and the plots in this series. Always a relaxing, entertaining, cozy read! This time, all of Wagtail is excited because a famous pooch is coming to town. Pippin is called America's Favorite Dog. Turns out, the television celebrity dog is a bit naughty....always running off and not minding.

Pippin is called America's Favorite Dog. Turns out, the television celebrity dog is a bit naughty....always running off and not minding. Holly Miller from the Sugar Maple Inn and her dog Trixie join in the festivities. During an outdoor treasure hunt, the two dogs find a dead body..... Not only does Holly have a murder to investigate, but someone shows up claiming ownership of Trixie. Plus, there is a dognapper in town! Yikes! Lots going on in Wagtail! I enjoyed this book! The mystery moves along at a fast pace with lots of Wagtail quirkiness to make it fun. There are a couple subplots in this newest book, but they add to the mystery rather than over-powering the main plot. Trixie's past comes back to nip Holly.....that bit of the plot had me wanting to jump into the book and slap a certain scruffy character. As the owner of two rescued dogs who were abandoned by prior owners, I have deep-set emotions on the issue. If anybody showed up saying my dogs belonged to them......oh I'd be kicking some butt. Immediate. Butt. Kicking. I got so worked up I was talking to the character as I read portions of the book.....I won't repeat what I said. This is a cozy review. No cussing. No graphic threats of violence. The front cover is colorful, cute and engaging as usual! I'm giving this book full stars. Any book that has me grumbling and wanting to punch a side character, plus gets me so engaged in the plot that I binge read the story in one sitting deserves full marks! Enjoyable read as usual! Cute animals. Light humor. Fun mystery. Fun setting. And cozy all the way. No spurting blood. No sex. No cussing. Just a nice, fun,entertaining read! Krista Davis always delivers! I am eagerly awaiting the next book! **I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book from Berkley via NetGalley. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.**

    Dollycas’s Thoughts After a brief hiatus Holly, Oma Liesel, Zelda, Mr. Huckle, Gingersnap, Twinkletoes, and Trixie are back and I am thrilled! Wagtail welcomes America’s favorite dog, Pippin, his co-stars, and entourage for a bit of a vacation before they start filming. The community has set up a treasure hunting game as an event for people to meet the star of the show but Trixie’s nose has other ideas. Yup, she has found another dead body and the death may be linked to the town’s newest visitors. Dollycas’s Thoughts After a brief hiatus Holly, Oma Liesel, Zelda, Mr. Huckle, Gingersnap, Twinkletoes, and Trixie are back and I am thrilled! Wagtail welcomes America’s favorite dog, Pippin, his co-stars, and entourage for a bit of a vacation before they start filming. The community has set up a treasure hunting game as an event for people to meet the star of the show but Trixie’s nose has other ideas. Yup, she has found another dead body and the death may be linked to the town’s newest visitors. The town is also up in arms as dogs disappearing, two so far. Plus a man claiming to be Trixie’s rightful owner tries to take the dog away from Holly. It is all paws on deck as Holly tries to find the missing pups and a killer before Wagtail is no longer safe for man, woman, or their lovable beasts. The entire concept of Wagtail is absolutely delightful. Imagine an entire town dedicated to serving pets and their people. When you go on vacation leaving your pets in a kennel or with friends checking in on them can be heartbreaking for everyone. Wagtail is the perfect locale for all. Krista Davis has created such wonderful characters, both humans and their pets. They are all well-developed and practically leap off the page. I have to say all of the dogs quickly worked their way into my heart. Twinkletoes too in her own standoffish way. The core set of characters continues to grow and we learn a few secrets along the way. The new characters this time were a quirky group with some secrets of their own. One dog, Stella loses her person and everyone looks out for her. Even the dogs. I loved the way the author dealt with her feelings throughout the entire story. At first, it brought a tear to my eye, but soon my heart was warmed by all the love and care Stella received. In addition to the great world-building of Wagtail and its residents and visitors, Ms. Davis gives readers a marvelous mystery to sink our teeth into. All the subplots blend in seamlessly with the mystery plot. The author sets a fast but comfortable pace. Clues are dropped amongst several twists to keep our tails wagging as we are in hot pursuit to solve the mystery. The murder’s weapon of choice was interesting and scary, something you would never think would be found in the small town of Wagtail, but it shines a light on a real problem in the world today. So much happens within the pages of this book I was impressed with the way everything came together in the end. I really didn’t want this story to end though. I love hanging out with these characters and I truly wish Wagtail was a real place to visit. I would pack my bags and move there as soon as possible. I hope we get to visit again soon. The Dog Who Knew Too Much is an entertaining and heartwarming story full of wonderful characters set in an idyllic place for pet lovers far and wide. I highly recommend the entire Paws & Claws Mystery Series! Check out all the covers, they are adorable.

    As always when I read this series, I get a good book hangover from it. I wanted to stay on in Wagtail even after the story ended. It was great seeing what Holly and her friends were up to again.

Stella the boxer got to play a part in taking the killer down, almost like she got revenge for her owner's death. She got a happy ending with a new human to love. I can't wait till the next visit to Wagtail!

    This is my first sample of the cozy mystery genre and was one of the books that was in a cozy mystery genre grab bag that I picked up at the library, and it happened to be a dog-themed set of books. I'm not a dog person, but still I thought it would be fun to try one, so I picked the cover that also had a cat on it. :) So, to the book.

I think the idea of having an entire town built around having dogs as pets and catering to them was a bit much for me. I don't think a page went by without the mention of one dog or another getting a special treat or a rub behind the ear or whatever. Also, I can clearly imagine the main character's wardrobe as every skort and sleeveless blouse color combination was pointed out each time there was a change of clothes. This character owns many pairs skorts! :D A fun read, but ultimately not for me. Maybe one of the bakery-themed cozy mysteries would be more to my liking.

    In The Dog Who Knew Too Much, things were hopping for Holly Miller as her adorable Jack Russell terrier, Trixie, had recently received some national attention. Trixie had her moment of fame as a cover model when she was featured on the cover of Dog Life magazine.

Trixie had her moment of fame as a cover model when she was featured on the cover of Dog Life magazine. This gave Trixie some notoriety and not only did the Sugar Maple Inn have attention because of the magazine article but Holly and Oma were also to be hostesses to “America’s Favorite Dog,” Pippin. With everything that was taking place, Holly only saw good things in her future but little did she know that the article she had hoped would bring good publicity to the Inn, in reality, actually brought a very bad man into her life. A man who was insistent that Trixie belonged to him. Also, Pippin, as adorable and rascally as he was, brought with him an entourage of drama with characters who were not everything that they appeared to be. With guests to entertain and dogs to pamper, Holly decided to keep her spirits up and focus on what really mattered. It wasn’t until pooches started disappearing and Trixie found a dead body, that Holly decided that, for the good of the community, she needed to get to the bottom of what was taking place in Wagtail. With the help of some old friends and new, Holly found herself on the trail of a killer and was determined to figure out what was truly taking place in her beloved town. Even though this story is the sixth installment in the Paws and Claws Mystery series, I had no issues reading it as a standalone. The setting was quirky and I loved imagining the town of Wagtail with its shops and animal centered focus. The pacing of the story is nicely done, fast to keep the action going but slowed down when emphasis was needed. There were subplots within this book that were weaved very well into the overall story and led me on a delightfully merry chase. If you love cozy mysteries with adorable furry characters as well as a whodunit filled with twists and turns, then The Dog Who Knew Too Much is a story that you will enjoy. This review is based on a complimentary book I received from Berkley Prime Crime. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating.

In the midst of the excitement comes cause for worry for two local dogs have gone missing and a strange man shows up in town claiming Trixie is actually his and he wants her back.

Celebrity dog Pippin has come to Wagtail with his entourage for a little r & r before starting filming his new show and the inn is hosting the cast. In the midst of the excitement comes cause for worry for two local dogs have gone missing and a strange man shows up in town claiming Trixie is actually his and he wants her back. Holly knows she could never ever let Trixie go to the man who abandoned her and worries he'll try to snatch her beloved Trixie. Then all eyes are on Trixie as she discovers yet another dead body, this time of the local dog breeder Diane Bushner. Dave and Holly are determined to find out who killed Diane. If only her Boxer, Stella, could talk! Some of the Hollywood guests act rather mysteriously with one quitting the inn to move to a cabin outside of town only to beg to move back in after Diane is found dead and another sporting a wig and sunglasses. Trixie and Pippin manage to escape together and ... you guessed it... find another body. This time someone Pippin knows. Armed with the means of death, Dave sets out to solve the murders while he tasks Holly and Trixie with finding the missing pups. Will Wagtail ever be safe again? This mystery is a lot darker than previous mysterious. The murder weapon is a real problem here in the cities and bringing that into idyllic Wagtail rather ruins the escapism of the novel. Also, Diane was a nice person, a real dog lover and devoted mom to Stella. Her death is heartbreaking. There's also the rude man who wants Trixie back now she's famous. Still, I enjoyed the mystery. There is so much going on and so many red herrings, I didn't know what to think. I had the wrong suspect and wrong motive but I was starting to wonder if the real murderer was involved somehow. I stayed up far too late reading this book in one night. I couldn't put it down. While the town of Wagtail may have lost some charm, the Sugar Maple Inn is still a charming, wonderful place I want to visit. I just love the gourmet meals they make for the pets to match the human meals! It's a happy place where people can relax with their beloved furry companions. I love that! I really like Holly. She has a lot of common sense, is kind, caring and of course doting mom to Trixie and Twinkletoes. I rather suspect the furry people own Holly and not the other way around. There may be a hint of a love triangle brewing but Holly seems to know who makes her heart go pitter-pat and Holmes, when he finally appears, seems to be coming around. They are definitely more than friends! Holly is a sweetheart with amazing people skills. I don't know how she puts up with some of the people who visit the inn. Even Oma seems to have a bit of a hidden temper. As one character comments, she's scarier than a big tough guy because you can't look her in the eye and tell her you've disappointed her. Oma is devoted to her community and her family, which includes all the residents of Wagtail skin and fur. She's strong and practical but the dognappings have her a bit stressed. Dave knows Holly well and knows Trixie's unique skills. While he doesn't want Holly actively involved in anything dangerous, he knows she hears things by nature of her job and her position as the mayor's granddaughter. Dave can use this to his advantage and isn't afraid to ask for help. For one, in a cozy series, the police know how to do their job and the heroine isn't butting heads with them. I really like that. The residents of Wagtail are so quirky. Sugar McLaughlin is a seriously annoying young woman who will stop at nothing to get her hands on a man. Her mother is pushy, rude and creepy. There are some new Wagtail residents we haven't met before. There's La Rue aka "The Runemaster" a mysterious man who lives in the woods. Holly seems a bit afraid of him but he doesn't sound harmful and her grandmother and Dave know more than they let on. Even Holmes has an appreciation for the man's unique skills. Holly wonders whether this man may be a law unto himself and commit murder to avenge a wrongful death. The Hoover family plays an important role here. Archie, a restaurant owner is big, brawny and yet kind. He helps his community and loves his family. Glenda, his wife, works in real estate and adores her little Yorkshire Terrier Dolly who is missing. Glenda is bereft without her baby. Their son Stan doesn't seem like much of a prize. The way he states he's working for his dad AND his mom makes him sound like a lazy kid. He's in his 20s and doesn't seem to have a permanent job. Is he in school? The more we learn about him, the more he appears unlikable. Clara Dorsey is a sweet, scatterbrained old lady who is missing her Scottie dog McTavish. She may be scatterbrained or hit the cooking sherry too hard, but she loves her dog. I think she may need a little help to continue living on her own. The Hollywood characters appear unlikable at first but the more I got to know them the more I liked them and didn't want any of them to be murderers, with the exception of Howard. Pippin, a Border Collie-Yellow Lab mix is a social media celebrity and star of a new TV sitcom. He's adorable but Trixie teaches him a few bad tricks! His assistant Jim is more than "just" his personal assistant. Jim rescued Pippin and made the dog a star. He loves Pippin and I think he would even if Pippin wasn't a celebrity. I think Jim could take or leave Hollywood but the money is nice. Finch Morrison, a former child star, has a hard edge to him I don't like. He has a biting sense of humor and is tired of being recognized for a show he did when he was a tiny tot. Once he explained himself I understood he's sort of a modern Mr. Darcy. He unbends once he gets to know his castmates and traveling companions. Marlee Siedel is very secretive. She's supposed to be Pippin's social media manager and she is missing during key moments. Marlee is also desperate to break into Hollywood and may be headed for trouble. Camille Ladouceur is an up-and-coming actress. This show is her big break and she's being cautious so not to cause a scandal that will nix the show. I think she's OK but the least developed of all the characters. Rae-Rae is a bit much at first with her exuberant personality and her blinged out clothing but I grew to really like her. I hoped she wasn't a murderer. Her purpose in Wagtail is a bit mysterious at first but when she reveals what she knows, it's pretty shocking. Rae-Rae has a past with Howard Hirschtritt, the famous actor. He may play quirky, funny characters on TV but his real personality is completely horrendous. He goes beyond Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, etc. or at least there are rumors that can't be proven. What is known as fact is that he drinks too much and has an abrasive personality that rubs everyone the wrong way. He's too special to stay at the inn and thinks the world revolves around him. Everyone else should be serving him as his flunkies and yes men. When someone dares stand up to him it has disastrous consequences. Wade is a seriously stupid, rude, terrible man who should be in jail. He claims to be Trixie's former owner but calls her "Dummy." He doesn't deserve her. For that name alone, he should be arrested for animal cruelty. The very best character in this novel is sweet Stella, a boxer pup who has a traumatic experience. She is so sweet and loving. Stella has a MAJOR role in this story as the beloved companion of a murder victim. Stella deserves a happy ending after everything she's been through. She shows that Boxers can be loving, loyal companions. Trixie is up to her old tricks again. She's too funny. It's obvious how much she appreciates all Holly has done for her but she is confused and upset over Wade's presence. She doesn't want to go with him but she's scared of what will happen if she doesn't. Holly adores Trixie and knows Trixie is way smarter than a human and not dumb at all. Trixie's wanderings have a purpose even if it's just grabbing dinner. She always finds her way back to Holly. They have a special bond. I really enjoyed this latest installment in the series even if it was a bit dark. I can't wait to visit Wagtail again!

    I love this series. This is one of the best books in the series so far. My favorite book is still The Ghost and Mrs. Mewer. I love all the fur babies in the book but especially Trixie. Trixie reminds me of my daughter’s daughter’s dog. I also like the human characters as well, the are likable and well developed. The mystery is full of twists and turns and kept me guess until the big reveal. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    I probably would have rated this 4 stars if I had started this series at the beginning. But there were so many characters, human and canine (and one cat), that I really had a hard time keeping track of them. This was book 6, and I imagine someone who read from the first book would know them by now. The story was pretty good, and the solution complicated.

    The Dog Who Knew Too Much by Krista Davis was one of those cozy mysteries that I read trying to get to the end and then when I got there I didn't want it to end! I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I like Wagtail, the folks at The Sugar Maple Inn, and their four legged side kicks! In this installment, Holly and Oma are busy welcoming America's favorite dog--border collie and yellow Labrador retriever mix named Pippin, and his human entourage to The Sugar Maple Inn.

There are a few secrets and a few twists and turns along the way that make this book really entertaining. I definitely want to read more Paws and Claws mysteries!

    Wagtail has a lot going on when a famous dog that is starring in a new TV show comes to town with the cast of the new show in an effort to bond and get to know each other. Holly has her sleuthing skills put to the test when there are dogs being taken and more than one person is murdered. I really enjoyed this story. There are multiple mysteries going on throughout the book and Krista Davis keeps all of the clues juggling throughout the entire book.

    Krista Davis never disappoints in this series. I soooo want to live in Wagtail! From the yummy food descriptions to all the animals to the location, it's just so much fun to read these books. As usual, this was a great read, and a very fun book with all the characters and their secrets, and the pups and their antics. I really enjoyed the story. The drug angle was handled with the respect it deserves, as it is a serious problem in society today. Can't wait to read more about Holly and Oma! Krista Davis never disappoints in this series.

America’s favorite dog comes to pet-friendly Wagtail for some rest and relaxation, but Holly quickly discovers that this perfect pup is a total scamp who takes every opportunity to run off and misbehave. During an outdoor treasure-hunting game, the star dog and Trixie, Holly’s beloved Jack Russell terrier, stumble across a dead body. Holly has more than murder to worry about, though, when a man shows up after reading an article featuring Trixie in a magazine and claims that he is the dog’s rightful owner. Holly will need to prove that she is her pup’s only parent and catch a killer to restore peace to her pet-loving happy place. Review: “The Dog Who Knew Too Much” brings me back to my favorite place in the world – Wagtail. A place where animals are accepted everywhere and places even are made for them to be comfortable. A place where Oma is a big part and I miss my own Oma. A place where dogs and cats are welcome and loved. Who could ask for more? Well, there is more, there is mystery, great characters, wonderful events, and fun times to be had. So when I know there is a new “Paws and Claws Mystery” coming out, I place my order and wait and wait and wait. And when it comes to my house, I have to read it right away. This has to be one of my very favorite series of all times, and this 6th installment did not disappoint!! Holly Miller and her dog Trixie are so much fun to read about. Their adventures draw the reader in and keep them riveted to the book till the end. Which, by the way, comes way too soon. In this one, a famous dog is visiting Wagtail for some relaxation. Pippin is America’s Favorite Dog and a huge television star. Pippin has a mischievous streak and loves to run with Trixie. Which can mean only one thing, dead bodies will be found. Of course Holly will have to find answers and her dog and friends will be there every step of the way. The one thing this book had that worried me was when someone came to claim Trixie as their own. I could not fathom this happening. It was a tense and fitful read for me, but of course I loved it. With all of Krista Davis’ books, there are lots of things going on and lots to keep the reader guessing. Her writing style is so enjoyable and this book is truly a hit. I was racing around in my own mind trying to put all the pieces together and could not until Holly had it all in hand. “The Dog Who Knew Too Much” is wonderful. If I could give more than 5 stars I surely would. I so love visiting Wagtail and only wish it was real. (One of these days). Krista Davis’ writing is as always entertaining, enjoyable, and intriguing. I only wish the next book in this fabulous series was already out for me to read. I recommend this book to any animal lover, cozy lover, and anyone that enjoys a well-written read full of fun and mystery. *OBS would like to thank the publisher for supplying a free copy of this title in exchange for an honest review as part of their ongoing blog tour*

    THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, the sixth book in the Paws and Claws Mysteries by Krista Davis, is another charming addition to an endearing series. From the inviting adorable cover (who can resist Trixie and Twinkletoes!) to the heart-warming quote at the beginning: “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself,” this newest release draws the reader in from the very start. The protagonist, Holly Miller, is co-owner of the Sugar Maple Inn with her Oma. I love the relati THE DOG WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, the sixth book in the Paws and Claws Mysteries by Krista Davis, is another charming addition to an endearing series. From the inviting adorable cover (who can resist Trixie and Twinkletoes!) to the heart-warming quote at the beginning: “A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than you love yourself,” this newest release draws the reader in from the very start. The protagonist, Holly Miller, is co-owner of the Sugar Maple Inn with her Oma. I love the relationship these two women have along with the various pets that come to share their abode. They are caring and leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling despite the conflicts that might come their way…like murder. Ms. Davis has created and developed the characters over the course of the series, so that they’ve grown and become like good friends. I appreciate that the pets are also allotted the author’s expertise with character development so that each animal has a unique personality. This makes Wagtail seem all the more realistic. The charming pet-centric town of Wagtail is playing host to the doggie star and cast visiting for some rest and relaxation. But when Holly’s body-finding dog, Trixie, finds a victim during one of the star’s events and when local pure-bred dogs start disappearing, Holly knows she must get involved and help solve the mystery. Ms. Davis weaves the subplots into the central murder mystery and oft times I wasn’t sure how she would manage to tie the pieces together. But she did and left me feeling thoroughly entertained and impressed! There were plenty of clues and suspects, but honestly I was enjoying the flow of the story so much I just wanted to sit back and go along for the ride while I watched it unfold. All in all, if you enjoy a pet-themed mystery, with well-developed characters, and a great plot, this is one series you shouldn’t miss! I was provided an advance copy via Netgalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    Everyone in Wagtail is excited that Pippin, America's most beloved dog, is coming for a visit. Pippin will be starring in an upcoming show, and the producer wants the cast to spend some time together. It should be a fun time, but when Trixie and Pippin discover the body of a local woman, speculation runs wild that one of the actors killed her. As if that wasn't bad enough, some dogs in Wagtail have gone missing, fueling rumors of a dognapper.

It should be a fun time, but when Trixie and Pippin discover the body of a local woman, speculation runs wild that one of the actors killed her. As if that wasn't bad enough, some dogs in Wagtail have gone missing, fueling rumors of a dognapper. Holly encounters a sketchy man who claims that Trixie belongs to him. She is determined not to let him take Trixie. After another murder, Holly doesn't know whom she can trust. She's going to need more than just Trixie's help to set things to rights. The story was exciting and enjoyable, but there is such a thing as too much going on. You have the dognappings, the man who is trying to lay claim to Trixie, two murders, people behaving strangely, porch pirates, and a mysterious recluse. On top of that, it seems that Holly once again has competition for Holmes' affection. Come on! We just got rid of his annoying fiancee, clearing the path for Holly, only to have another contender arrive on the scene? Do not want. In spite of all the intersecting subplots going on, the narrative flowed smoothly enough. Characterizations were as wonderful as ever. Very good!

    "The Dog Who Knew Too Much" is a cozy mystery. It's the sixth book in a series. You don't need to read the previous books to understand this story, and this book didn't spoil the previous ones.

The Hollywood actors drew a lot of attention and added drama, but it was a local woman who turned up dead. Several of the visitors knew her a long time ago, but it's not clear why any of them would murder her now. Holly asked questions and observed people, then passed on clues to the detective. The mystery was complex enough that whodunit was guessable but not obvious. The characters were interesting and engaging. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this fun mystery. I received this book as a free review copy from the publisher.
