    One thought on “Purring around the Christmas Tree”

    1. Cute and festive cover on this one. Great use of graphics that represent the story well. Good composition and OK title work.The first 50% or so of this one was really good. Then certain characters started to grate on my last nerve. Jake became a huge jerk. Jessie became an even BIGGER b!tch, and Stan turned into a self-righteous know it all. How this woman even ran a business is beyond me since she basically would only spend like five minutes at a time there before she was off sticking her nose [...]

    2. I always enjoy visiting Stan Connor in Frog Ledge, Connecticut, and love her schnoodle, Scruffy. In this story, Stan has worked hard to prepare for the Grand Opening of her Pawsitively Organic Pet Patisserie. It's been her dream to have a shop where pets and their owners can meet and the fur-babies enjoy gourmet delights. At the annual tree lighting ceremony, however, Santa's arrival in a beautiful sleigh is diminished by a call for an ambulance and the state troopers. Someone is dead, and someo [...]

    3. The town of Frog’s Ledge, Connecticut, is celebrating the start of the holiday season with their big tree lighting, and Stan is doubly excited since her new pet patisserie is opening the next day. However, things take an unexpected turn when Santa dies on his way to light the tree. Meanwhile, two other men are missing. Is there a connection?I was hooked from the start with this book. Even though I figured out one thread early on, I still wanted to know how it was all going to play out. I did f [...]

    4. The annual Christmas tree lighting in Frog Ledge is always a big deal but this year it's been marred by the unexpected death of the man playing Santa Claus, which turns out to be a murder. At first everyone thinks it's Seamus McGee who was supposed to have played Santa but it was actually a transient sort of guy named Harold. There has also been a national story shared by newspaper man Cyril about the book of Kells being stolen from Ireland. With Seamus missing along with B&B owner Char's hu [...]

    5. I loved this latest installment of the Pawsitively Organic Mysteries. I love travelling to the town of Frog Ledge and I really enjoyed how this one focused a lot of Stan's family, Jake's family, and other families throughout town. I do wish Nutty and the rest of Stan and Jake's pets were a little more prominent in this story. I can't wait to read the next installment! Kristan (Stan) is finally ready to open her pet patisserie and the grand opening is scheduled for the weekend of the Christmas tr [...]

    6. It is Christmas time in Frog's Ledge and Stan Conner is busy with the tree lighting and Santa arrival. Only Santa is dead in his sleigh. Jake's uncle Seamus who was to play Santa is missing along with Ray Mackey. Stan's dream of opening her own pet bakery is coming to fruition. So much is happening that the animals play only a minor part. There are enough twists and turns to please everyone. The minor themes are skillfully blended together for a gratifying book. The ending will please and is a s [...]

    7. This series just keeps getting better. I gave 5 stars to the 5th book in the series and this is just as good. This is my idea of how a series should develop. I am especially impressed since cozies usually do not have intricate plots, but along with a great setting, protagonist and reoccurring characters, Liz Mugavero writes a good mystery. This just came out and I can hardly wait for the next one.

    8. I absolutely adore this series, so I was beyond happy when I was given the chance on Netgalley by Kensington Books to read this early. It was like all my Christmases had come at once! (No pun intended)I'm very familiar with Stan and Frog Ledge, having visited with them before. I think the only book I haven't read in this series is the one just before this one, and although I had missed the introduction of a few key characters I had all the background I needed to fall back into this world. From t [...]

    9. I enjoyed the writing and the characters, but there were just SO MANY of them. Some series you can pick up any book and read without having read the earlier ones, but I think this is one where I would have enjoyed it more if I had started from book one and read through. 2.5 stars

    10. I enjoyed the people (except Jessie who went back to being b*tchy) and loved how they all helped each other through crisis. The first part of the book went a bit slow and confusing as many of Jake's relatives were around and his uncle turned up missing as Santa died.I have no idea how Stan thought she could run a business. It was her Grand Opening and I think she managed 10 min there a day. That doesn't work for any business and especially not one that has consumables that need to be prepared.Bu [...]

    11. Purring Around the Christmas Tree by Liz Mugavero is the sixth book in this series and was a delight to read from beginning to end. I do love this series and was glad to be back in Frog Ledge with Stan, Jake, Breanna and the other characters. This time the mystery is more centered around Jake's family and I found this fascinating. As much as I like Stan and Jake, I've always wondered about Jake's other family members. This story highlighted new to me family members as well as the family members [...]

    12. I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.When it comes to cozy mysteries, I do love holidays, pets and food so this book checked a lot of the boxes for me. I'm going to start out with my failing on this - when I requested it, I didn't realize it wasn't first in a series. Because the synopsis mentioned a new shop, I assumed it was first in the series and requested it. This does give me the ability to comment on whether or not this is a series you can star [...]

    13. Purring Around the Christmas Tree is the sixth book in Liz Mugavero’s Pawsitively Organic mystery series. The storyline is well plotted and the characters well developed and colorful. The mystery began quickly, there was always something happening to keep my attention. There’s plenty of twists and turns to hold the reader’s interest and keep them guessing. I highly recommend this series to readers who love well-crafted cozies.Kristan “Stan” Connor lives in the small town of Frog Ledge, [...]

    14. PURRING AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE, the sixth book in the Pawsitively Organic Mystery series by Liz Mugavero, grabs your attention from the very first sentence and keeps you entertained until the very last page. The plot includes a missing ancient national Irish treasure, a missing Uncle Seamus, a dead Santa, and strangers invading the town of Frog Ledge, Connecticut. Frog Ledge is a charming Norman Rockwell type of town and the protagonist, Kristan “Stan” Conner has just opened her equally c [...]

    15. Princess Fuzzypants here:This is one of those series that I have enjoyed since the first book and look forward to each one. The latest did not disappoint. Stan has more than enough on her plate with Christmas holidays, a house full of people and the grand opening of her new store. When the Santa for the town’s celebration dies during the festivities, it puts a damper on things. He was poisoned and there is some controversy about whether the victim was the intended or whether the man who was su [...]

    16. Book six in the series. I haven't read a book in the series since book 2 and while I felt like I was missing a little background, it didn't stop me from enjoying this book. It just made me want to go back and read the rest to see what I missed, haha.Kristan "Stan" Connor is opening a store front for her organic pet items and what better time for her grand opening then right after the lighting of the town's Christmas tree?Things go immediately wrong for Stan, her boyfriend, Jake and the town when [...]

    17. What could be more festive than waiting for the Christmas tree in the town green to light up?

A fear washes over Stan, her heart beating and her brain repeating "not again."For all fans of the Pawsitively Organic Mystery series by Liz Mugavero, w [...]

    18. Not a bad story, just not as well developed as former installments in the series. Stan is caught up in Christmas festivities and getting her store launched, but keeps getting pulled away to investigate the death of a Santa Claus. Considering the Santa in question is her boyfriend's uncle whom he accepts blindly, this would be an opportunity to really develop his character. Why would he care so much about a man with flaws visible to every one else? Stan is determined to solve the mystery to the p [...]

    19. Once again, Liz Mugavero has brought us delightful characters and a great community that looks so peaceful, until you start wondering whether any of them are who they are supposed to be. Throw in Jake's uncle and a bunch of people who come looking for him, and you'd have a pretty good Keystone Kops routine. Stan has gotten roped into serving on the committee for the holiday lighting festival, just as she is trying to open her organic dog treat shop. Her boyfriend's Uncle Seamus, who visits every [...]

    20. Purring about the Christmas Tree may be my favorite so far. I love the way the characters have developed even though I don't always agree with the main characters, the same way I don't always agree with my sisters that I love.

    21. Liz Mugavero has done it again! Purring Around the Christmas Tree is the fabulous 6th in the Pawsitively Organic Mystery series. It surpasses expectations and can be read as a standalone. Scruffy, Stan’s Schnoodle, and Nutty, her Maine Coon cat, both inspired by the author’s own pets, and her additional rescued pups provide impetus for the grand opening of her Pet Patisserie. Treats she custom designed for them and has been selling from her home are wildly successful, so a shop is born.The s [...]

    26. I have been a fan of the Series from the start and when I was able to get a copy of the book through NetGalley I jumped at the chance, but I have to say with a heavy heart that I did not like this book as much as the previous ones. Having been on this journey with Stan, I would recommend you read the books in order, and she finally fulfills her dream of opening her shop, she does very little to make it a success, if it was not for her trusted helper Brenna, she would not even be open, somehow I [...]

Stan and company are getting ready for all of the town festivities with Jake's uncle tapped to play Santa. When Santa ends up murdered and it is not Jake's uncle, Stan is thrown into solving the crime and to find out the whereabouts of Jake's uncle. This series is so enjoyable on many different levels.

    28. If you're like me, you read a lot of cozys- and this time of year an equal number of Christmas themed books (I really should save these for days when the temperature is under 85 degrees!). This is a good example of the genre and if you haven't read the series before (I hadn't) you'll be fine. Mugavero has created a classic in Stan, who owns an organic pet food shop and who seems to bump into murders at every turn in her small town of Frog's Ledge, although really- at the Christmas tree lighting! [...]
