Publisher's Summary

The first book in the Shady Hollow series, in which we are introduced to the village of Shady Hollow, a place where woodland creatures live together in harmony - until a curmudgeonly toad turns up dead and the local reporter has to solve the case.

Reporter Vera Vixen is a relative newcomer to Shady Hollow. The fox has a nose for news, so when she catches wind that the death might be a murder, she resolves to get to the bottom of the case, no matter where it leads. As she stirs up still waters, the fox exposes more than one mystery, and discovers that additional lives are in jeopardy.

Vera finds more to this town than she ever suspected. It seems someone in the Hollow will do anything to keep her from solving the murder, and soon it will take all of Vera’s cunning and quickness to crack the case.

easy listen

Entertaining narration, but the characters are oddly stereotypical (fox is clever, racoons is theif, etc.) Pretty classic murder mystery story full of traditional gender roles and slut shaming. The males work so hard and just need a break from their harpy wives. Same old same old. if not for the great voice acting and short length, I would have stopped listening.

Why the critters?

The plot was good
The animal thing stupid
I just pretend they were people because it was too disturbing to think of some of the cross species romances
