Waiting On Wednesday (104)

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Murder Likes It Hot
A Downward Dog Mystery #6
Tracy Weber
Midnight Ink, January 2019
Mystery, Cozy

From the publisher—

Newly married yoga instructor Kate Davidson feels stuck in low-energy limbo, despite her high-energy life. She’s trying to conceive a child, keep her studio afloat now that the ultra-cheap Some Like It Hot Yoga studio has opened across the street, and start a yoga program at a local resource center for homeless youth.

When a center employee is found dead, Kate sets aside her fertility and financial woes to delve into the world of teenage homelessness. While digging for clues with her German shepherd Bella, Kate discovers that family can be formed by bonds stronger than shared DNA, and she must defend it at all costs.

Why am I waiting so eagerly? I think cozies can be too sappy sometimes and a little goes a long way if you know what I mean 😉 This series has held my attention from the first book, partly because the protagonist is not TSTL and the author sets each mystery around a theme that teaches the reader a little something. In this case, teenaged homelessness is at the core of the story along with a look at different types of family…and I’ll get to spend more time with Bella!
