Publisher's Summary

Middle-aged bookstore owner Willa Chance is often haunted by ghosts who want her to do their bidding. Usually it involves the nasty business of bringing their killers to justice, so when the ghost of Adelaide Hamilton asks her to find an old recipe book and give it to Elspeth Whipple, it seems like an easy job. Except Willa's search for the book has her crossing the path of Sheriff Eddie Striker one too many times for comfort. He's acting almost as if he's investigating a murder, but Adelaide died of natural causes. Didn't she?

When it turns out Adelaide's entire family had means, motive, and opportunity, Willa's search becomes dangerous, and she finds herself matching wits with a cold-blooded killer who wants the same thing she does. Luckily Willa's cat, Pandora, is looking out for her and enlists the aid of the other cats of Mystic Notch, who will stop at nothing to ensure Willa's safety as well as the recovery of the book...even if it takes a little bit of magic.

Little Dissapointed

Again Willa sent us reeling into a myriad of possible senarios, but thankfully less than before. They become tedious instead of entertaining. Also the repetitive narrative needs better editing. Willa told us numerous times about the dangerous animals in the wild. Okokok! I would like to have heard Willa and Striker confess to each other about their extraordinary talents and see where the story line would take us from there! Still a good read/listen.

Leighan Dobbs

I have thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Dobbs books on Mystic Notch mysteries. I am sorry the series is finished. I hope that she will write a #5.

Could have been much shorter!

What did you like best about Probable Paws? What did you like least?

I am a fan of almost any cozy mystery but this one missed the mark. Willa Chance as portrayed in this one could be described as the definition of a confused, rambling ditzy female. Hardly the character one expects in a seasoned, 50 something former crime reporter.

What was most disappointing about Leighann Dobbs’s story?

The author seemed to be trying to find a way to drag out the story. Willa repeating conversations over and over while totally ignoring all the obvious clues. Just did not fit with the persona developed in the earlier books.

Any additional comments?

Normally I do not write reviews but this book made me want to push fast forward just to get it over with! The book could have been at least 8 chapters shorter.

A Recipe for Murder

Willa is attending a funeral when the ghost of the deceased asks for her help. Turns out her boyfriend also sees ghosts but on a different plane. Now they are both on the hunt without knowing each other’s secrets. Great series.

Volume fluctuation

I do enjoy the Mystic Notch series. Elisabeth Rodgers narration is good but her voice fluctuates from quiet when she is reading the story to very loud when she is reading as a character so much that I was constantly turning the volume up and down throughout the book.
I do love the characters and the story line.

Another great tale by Leighan Dobbs.

Great narration and a story that keeps you guessing. Wonderfully imagined cats...if only they could talk or we could understand their ways of communication.

Easy listening

I had to get this latest book after listening to the other 4. It is a good story. It may be predictable for some, but it lets you rest your brain and try to enjoy a charming book. I have completely enjoyed this series.

A good easy read

Ideal series to listen to whilst plodding along doing house work or gardening. Nice and clean with just enough drama but not too much!
