Welcome to the Barks & Beans Cafe, a quaint place where folks pet shelter dogs while enjoying a cup of java…and where murder sometimes pays a visit.

Fed up with her go-nowhere job, newly single Macy Hatfield moves back to her small hometown in West Virginia. She joins forces with her brother Bo in his crazy new venture—the Barks & Beans Cafe, which caters to dog lovers and coffee drinkers alike.

When a golf instructor is murdered at the nearby spiritual center, Macy winds up adopting his Great Dane. Just after Macy finds a mysterious message sewn under the dog’s collar, her Dane is dognapped. She launches into a relentless search for her newfound canine friend, but along the way, she digs up a cruel and confident killer.

Join siblings Macy and Bo Hatfield as they sniff out crimes in their hometown…with plenty of dogs along for the ride! The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series features a small town, an amateur sleuth, and no swearing or graphic scenes.

The Barks & Beans Cafe cozy mystery series in order:
Book 1: No Filter
Book 2: Iced Over

No Filter is the first in the new series The Barks & Bean Cafe cozy mystery series, and it got off to a great start. I am loving cozy mysteries that feature animals and Coal the Great Dane was just a great sidekick for Macy.

Following her divorce Macy has returned to her hometown and setup a cafe with her brother Bo – the Barks & Beans which features the very popular idea of a petting cafe allowing people to drink their coffee and potentially adopt a dog at the same time. I don’t think Macy planned on adopting a dog let alone get involved with trying to solve his previous owners murder!

As far as cozy mysteries goes this quaint little town takes a deadly turn, filled with a host of colourful characters, a little romance and of course cute doggies of all shapes and sizes.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I can’t wait to read more of Macy and Coal’s adventures.

    I’ve been wanting to read the Exotic Pet-Sitters series. Sounds like a great series.
