KARMA'S A KILLER by Tracy Weber_Tour

Review: KARMA' S A KILLER by Tracy Mitchell

I really enjoyed reading KARMA' S A KILLER. It's a little deeper than many cozies, relying as it does on a foundation of yoga and yogic principles and literature. This made it extra interesting for me, as did the protagonist, Kate, who has strongly-founded psychological issues (with good reason). Neither character or author is shy about revealing these issues, and I experienced more empathy with the protagonist because of it. I definitely plan to read the earlier books in the series too.

Then there's the other excellent theme, for me, and that's animals. Kate is owned by a rescue dog with health and emotional issues. She encounters a feisty elder who runs a wildlife rehabilitation. There are also a couple of dog rescue operations (and cats). Kate owns a yoga studio; her boyfriend owns a pet store. It all makes for an intriguing mixture of input, including several sub-themes which I don't wish to spoil for future readers. It's all good.

When Seattle yoga teacher Kate Davidson agrees to teach doga (yoga for dogs) at a fundraiser for a local animal rescue, she believes the only damage will be to her reputation. But a few downward-facing dogs are the least of Kate’s problems when an animal rights protest at the event leads to a suspicious fire and a drowning.

The police arrest a woman claiming to be Kate’s estranged mother and charge her with murder. To prove her innocence, Kate, boyfriend Michael, and German shepherd sidekick Bella dive deeply into the worlds of animal activism, organizational politics, and the dangerous obsessions that drive them. All while discovering that when it comes to murder, there’s no place like hOMe.
