Gone With the Witch by Heather Blake, to be published May 3, 2016 by NAL
Wishcraft Mystery #6

Book beginning, Chapter One:
Sunlight burst through the front windows of As You Wish, spotlighting the pink streaks in Ivy Teasdale's shoulder-length strawberry blond hair and the vehemence in her blue eyes. 
"The integrity of the event is at stake, Darcy," Ivy said to me, the sound of hammering outside punctuating her words like exclamation points. "Along with its sterling reputation." 
She sat ramrod straight on the velvet sofa cross from me, her hands fisted, her black-tipped fingernails pressing deeply into the fleshy skin of her palms. 
Publisher description:

Wish-granting witch Darcy Merriweather is put to the test at a pet show. . . . 

Darcy and her dog Missy are at the annual Pawsitively Enchanted pet contest. The show’s organizer hires Darcy to keep an eye on things among growing suspicions that someone is sabotaging the event. But her lead suspect is found dead, and someone begins snatching up prize-winning pets from under their owners’ noses. Darcy is determined to protect the pampered participants at whatever cost.

My hand shook as I said, "How did you do this?"

Sounds like a fun story. I love the description in the beginning - "vehemence in her blue eyes". Today I am featuring Dragon Harper by Anne McCaffrey as I work to lower TBR mountain. Happy reading!

Sounds like a fun cozy mystery. I love the sweet cover, and stories that feature dogs almost always appeal to me.
My Friday post features FELICITY’S POWER.

I've read a lot of her books under the Heather Webber name but none of her Heather Blake books. This one sounds like a lot of fun!
