Reviews for 2013 DISCOVER AWARD WINNER - MUZZLED
”In Eileen Brady's MUZZLED,the sleuth of this cozy mystery is none other than a veterinarian, and as a veterinarian myself, I couldn't be more thrilled. Here is a novel written with exacting authority, along with a frolicking sense of humor about life, animals, and the lengths to which someone will go to right a wrong, all while still maintaining a solid sense of tension and suspense. I look forward to future mysteries featuring the charismatic Dr. Kate Turner...and I'm sure you will, too!"
--James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of The Eye of God

Everyone in the charming Hudson Valley town of Oak Falls expected Flynn Keegan, their handsome blond "Golden Boy" to make it big in Hollywood. So when veterinarian Kate Turner identifies a bode dug up by one of her dog patients as human, no one thinks back ten years to remember Flynn. Until DNA and a smashed skull proved he was murdered.
With few clues available to the forensic team, the grieving family begs Kate to investigate. His four closest friends plead ignorance. Neighbors and teachers remember the charismatic young man but offer no real help. Meanwhile, Kate is juggling her eccentric house call clients, a silly pot-bellied pig wedding, and the sudden re-appearance of an old college boyfriend. But Kate soon discovers that chains of love can be as strong as those made of steel - and some deadly secrets have put her next on the kill list.
Dr. Kate Turner is happy with her new life in Oak Falls, upstate New York. Working as a relief veterinarian at a small house-call practice, she truly enjoys helping her patients.
All that changes when client Claire Birnham is found dead, an apparent suicide. A talented artist, Claire had everything to live for: new job, Manhattan apartment, and her Cairn terrier, Toto. As feisty as his namesake in the Wizard of Oz, Toto was devoted to his human mommy. Kate can't imagine Claire abandoning her beloved pet. She suspects it was murder.
House calls provide gossip and clues, some helpful, some not so much, while Dr. Kate continues to diagnose and treat her animal patients. The fragile friendship between Kate and police officer Luke Gianetti frays as she ignores his advice and risks everything to unmask an ingenious killer.
UNLEASHED is the second book in theKate Turner, D.V.M. Mysteryseries. Dr. Kate again combines humorous animal stories and real veterinary medicine then tops it all with a healthy dose of murder.
