Gunn Zoo cozy mystery series by Betty Webb. The series is a clean cozy whose main character is a zookeeper (and volunteer environmentalist) and Joe, her local sheriff love interest.
This is a well written cozy which fits comfortably into the genre. For fans of continuing series with animals/antiques/librarians/bakeries & caterers, this series is engaging and fun.
The characterizations and plotting are adept and very readable. It's a diverting and entertaining read.
Due out 2nd May, 2018 from Poisoned Pen, available in ebook, hardback and paperback formats (according to Amazon pre-pub info). No page content listed, but it's a relatively short read.
Bonus points for the author's dedication. I practically grew up in my local public library and owe my lifelong reading habit to my parents (both educators) and a slew of engaged and intelligent public librarians who encouraged me to read anything and everything I could get my hands on.
Three and a half stars.
