Publisher's Summary

Halloween Hijinks: Amid a backdrop of zombies on the run and Halloween festivities, animal control officer Zoe Donovan is faced with losing something she loves in order to save someone she loves when she finds a dead body in the basement of a haunted house just two days before Halloween. With the help of her best friends, Levi and Ellie, and her dog Charlie, she delves into a mystery as complex and multilayered as the feelings she develops for her ex-nemesis Zak Zimmerman. Halloween Hijinks is the perfect recipe, combining holiday fun with a touch of humor, a pinch of romance, and a dollop of murder.

Zoe's Treasure Hunt: Zoe and Charlie meet a mysterious stranger at the hospital while doing therapy dog rounds. The man is in town to look for a 70-year-old treasure. When he is unable to continue the journey into the past himself, Zoe and Charlie take over the quest with the help of Pappy and a few of his friends.

Halloween thrills and hijinks

This is the first in the Zoe Donovan cozy mystery series. There are Halloween thrills! And there are lots of hijinks! Zoe and the rest of the town are preparing for the upcoming Halloween festivities, but then Zoe finds a dead body. There’s a lot hidden in the background. There’s possibly some new romances blooming. There’s lots of animals. I loved Zoe and her friends!

bonus short story

I read this a few years ago (2016) and had forgotten many of the details. I am glad I listened to this. I was in the mood for a Halloween themed cozy mystery.

Zoe works for the county and rescues animals. She strives not to have to put any animals down and is always trying to rehome them within the six-week stay limit.

A high school football player is run off the side of the road before the big game and breaks his leg in three places.
There is a big rivalry between the opposing high school teams. The antics between the teams leads to Levi, the coach and friend of Zoe, to be placed on probation.

Zoe is on the team for setting up events for Ashton Falls. The town events are how they fund the running of the town.
This month’s event is the Zombie Run. Interesting concept.

The body of the opposing team's coach and the primary suspect being Levi has Zoe investigating the murder. She continues investigating even though her job is at stake.

This book is well written with good character development. I look forward to the next in the series.

I was amazed that I had forgotten how naive Zoe was in this first book of the series. She was quick to blab about the body she found even though the sheriff specifically asked her not to talk about it. Also, the recounting of past issues with the sheriff shows she has a lot of learning to do.

I feel Zak will be a good influence on her.

The narrator did a wonderful job!
