On Fur Bridge Farm, Jules cares for rescued rabbits. But when a killer strikes, she’ll need a rabbit to rescue her . . .

Juliette “Jules” Bridge prides herself on the tender rehabilitation she provides for injured or abused rabbits on her New Hampshire rescue farm, but she has a very special relationship with one bunny in particular. Bun is a black-and-white rabbit who happens to have the ability to communicate through mental telepathy. Once she got over the shock, Jules found her furry friend had a lot to say.

One frigid March morning on their walk together, Bun spots a body. The police identify the frozen stiff as Arthur Freeman, aka Arty the Mime. Jules and Arty knew each other on the children’s party circuit, where he’d perform magic tricks and she had an educational rabbit petting pen. With Bun egging her on, Jules decides it’s time they hop to it and put their heads together to discover who silenced the mime. But their investigation leads them down a rabbit hole of more suspects and lies, while a killer sets a trap for them . . .

My Thoughts…

If you like cozy mysteries and you are looking for a series with a difference, then look no further!

I loved this cozy with its unusual telepathic rabbit. The first in a new series, Left Fur Dead was set in a quaint New Hampshire Town.

In the opening chapters we meet Juliette ‘Jules’ Bridge who owns and runs a sanctuary for rescued rabbits. Jules was well drawn and very likeable in terms of her fearlessness and determination but her decision-making was extremely flawed as she kept on finding herself in undesirable situations.

Bun, Jules’ telepathic black and white rabbit, had a penchant for sleuthing, assisting Jules to solve crimes in their community, especially if they have a connection to the rabbit farm. Bun was sweet, very wise and observant, though garrulous and stole many a scene from the others.

All of the characters created by the author, J. M. Griffin, were fascinating in themselves and I could see some opportunities for character progression. The pacing was perfect for the story and with an effortlessly transitioning plot-line, the suspense built as the story progressed, right up until the surprising conclusion. I just had to keep turning those pages and I didn’t guess the identity of the perpetrator in this fantastic mystery, although I had them on my plausible suspect list.

If you’re looking for an alternative cozy mystery read, then I heartily recommend Left Fur Dead. I will be looking out for more by this fabulous author, J. M. Griffin.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Great Escapes Tours at my own request. This review is my own unbiased opinion.
