The third book in a mystery series centering on the owner of a Seattle yoga studio begins with an animal rights group disrupting an event to support an animal shelter. Shortly after the protest, one of the members of Humans for Ethical Animal Treatment is found murdered. Kate should probably just go on with her life, but the woman arrested for the murder is Kate’s estranged mother, Dharma, who Kate feels compelled to help. Bringing in Dharma allows Tracy Weber to organically incorporate much of Kate’s backstory while also creating a reason for Kate to become involved in yet another mystery. Weber infuses this cozy mystery with bits of humor (especially involving Kate’s rescue dog) that make the plot all the more entertaining.
