Andy Skyberg has headed back to his hometown, after his business fails and his wife leaves him. All he wants is a peaceful life. However things aren’t as peaceful in New Bergen as he would like. Crimes are on the rise in New Bergen with extortion, arson and even murder occurring in the small town. Andy becomes involved when ex-girlfriend, Trudi Bock, becomes the target of these crimes. It’s seems half the town has a grudge against Trudi, especially with her involvement in Wicca. With the help of his dog, King Harald, Andy is determined to restore peace in New Bergen and hunt down the criminals.
I really enjoy cozy mysteries with animals, and I have a new series to add my to “favorites” list with King Harald, the adorable canine in this series. King Harald, with his ability to sniff out clues, had me saying “aww” a lot as I watched while he and his owner, Andy Skyberg, try to solve the mystery surrounding the crimes in New Bergen.
As a first book in this series, I was instantly pulled into the town of New Bergen, and it’s “unusual” occupants. Trudi Bock, New Age retailer at Karma Kubbyhole, certainly lights up the pages, as she tries to get Andy to rekindle their flame, despite Andy dating Deputy Sheriff Cass Conlin. It’s not like she doesn’t have enough troubles of her own, especially with half the town holding a grudge against her.
The Karma of King Harald was a really fun, light hearted cozy mystery. For fans of canines in cozy mysteries this is definitely one you won’t want to miss.
