Killing Trail (A Timber Creek K-9 Mystery)
By Margaret Mizushima
Why this book?
I enjoy stories about close-knit communities like the rural area and Sheriff’s Department created in these Timber Creek K-9 Mysteries by Margaret Mizushima. The main character, Deputy Mattie Cobb, is no superhero, but she is kind, gutsy, and resilient under stressful circumstances. The events that Mattie and her K-9 partner Robo are called upon to investigate take place in the rugged Rocky Mountains, with their unpredictable weather and challenging topography. Animal lovers like me especially appreciate Mattie’s special relationship with German Shepherd Robo, as well as her affection for local veterinarian Cole Walker and his daughters. Killing Trail is the first book in this series, and Mizushima’s stories get better with every subsequent mystery.
