Review - On St. Nick's Trail by M.K. Scott


* Goodreads * Amazon *



 


Old Saint Nick is missing, sparking shenanigans in the town of Santa Claus.

Private Eye Nala Bonne and her trusty crime-fighting rescue dog Max spend their days surfing social media for telltale signs of disability fraud and philandering husbands, but when a lucrative opportunity to investigate something entirely different, Nala readily agrees to take the case. The task: find a missing Santa impersonator.

 

Unfortunately for her, someone is dead set against the search and will stop at nothing to drive Nala and Max out of town before their search even begins. Can this dynamic duo locate the missing Santa before it’s too late?




 
 
Yes, it's a bit too early for me to be reading Christmas-themed books, but despite the title, On St. Nick's Trail isn't a Christmas story, though it does involve Santa Claus. Set in a town called Santa Claus, the plot centers on the disappearance of a Santa Claus impersonator, and it's up to private detective Nala Boone and her canine pal Max to solve the mystery.

This book is my first venture into The Talking Dog Detective Agency series, and I thought it was a fun little read. It reminded a lot of the Cat Who... books by the late Lilian Jackson Braun. The characters are quirky and likable, and the dialogue is lively.

Overall, On St. Nick's Trail is a fast-paced mystery that will easily distract you from all the craziness in our the world.

M.K. Scott is the husband and wife writing team behind The Painted Lady Inn Mysteries. Morgan K Wyatt is the general wordsmith, while her husband, Scott, is the grammar hammer and physics specialist. He uses his engineering skills to explain how fast a body falls when pushed over a cliff and various other felonious activities. The Internet and experts in the field provide forensic information, while the recipes and B and B details require a more hands on approach. Morgan's daughter, who manages a hotel, provides guest horror stories to fuel the plot lines. The couple's dog, Chance, is the inspiration behind Jasper, Donna's dog.
