Description:

Kristan "Stan" Connor is thrilled to be invited to the Groundhog Day festivities in quirky Frog Ledge, Connecticut. Her organic, home-baked pet treats are a big hit at the annual celebration, though an important guest is curiously absent . . . 

When Helga Oliver, the town's elderly historian, is found crumpled in the basement of the Historical Museum, the close-knit town is devastated. But after some tenacious digging, Stan discovers Helga was pushed down the stairs--and that this picture-perfect New England town may hide some dark secrets . . . 

Stan's dogged determination reveals Helga's ties to an unsolved death in 1948 . . . but how does that connect to Adrian Fox, who's just arrived in town to shoot an episode of Celebrity Ghost Hunters? Stan is going to have to be very careful in chasing down the killer--if she wants to live to see another winter…

My Thoughts:

This book starts out with a Groundhog Day festival in the quaint town of Frog Ledge.  Kristan known to everyone as Stan is presenting a gift to the groundhog when Helga Oliver the local historian winds up dead, Stan's curiosity is getting the best of her wondering what happened. Who would want Helga dead and why at the beginning of the Groundhog Day festival?

I enjoyed this book a lot and loved the aspect of the pets and pet recipes that Stan comes up with also I enjoyed learning about other characters that are in this small town.  I think anyone who loves small town mystery and pets in their stories.  Such a great mystery had me guessing until the end!
