Book Review: The Dead Dog Day by Jackie Kabler

Amazon USA Amazon UK

Review by Suze

Cora Baxter is a well known woman because of her job for a breakfast television show. She's recently been dumped by her boyfriend. Unfortunately the bad luck isn't over yet as her boss, who nobody at work really likes, has been murdered. The killer might be someone she knows as it happened at work. Cora doesn't feel entirely safe as she thinks someone's watching her, but she soon forgets about it when she meets someone new. Her friends and the men in her life are keeping her busy. The same goes for her work. She has to get up early almost every day and sometimes she finds herself in the most bizarre situations. Will they find the killer and does Cora indeed know this person?

The Dead Dog Day is the first book of the Cora Baxter mysteries. I really liked this book. It's fast paced and Jackie Kabler has a unique writing style that's very fitting for the world she's writing about. It's amazing to read about Cora's television work and her coworkers. It intrigued me and I wanted to keep reading. I felt like that from the start, the story immediately fascinated me. I like the way Jackie Kabler shares her knowledge about the television world. 

Cora has an exciting life. She does live shows, she's often going out and spends many merry evenings drinking with friends or gorgeous men. She's also someone who wants to be loved for who she really is. I liked that aspect a lot. The reader has the chance to get to know her well, to come close to her. The mystery itself is a good one. I couldn't wait to find out who the killer was and really liked the ending. Jackie Kabler has written a great finale. The Dead Dog Day has it all, it's clever, it's witty, it has many terrific settings and the main characters are fantastic.
