When Tobi Tobias decided to open her own ad agency, having to moonlight in a pet shop wasn’t part of her vision . . . of course, neither was murder.
Sometimes when opportunity knocks, the door you open leads to a closet. That’s certainly the case for Tobi, whose weekends spent cleaning cages in her best friend’s pet shop may soon be over. She’s just landed her first big break—Zander Closet Company needs a catchy campaign slogan ASAP, and Tobi thinks she’s got the right hook to knock ’em dead: “When we’re done, even your skeletons will have a place.”
But when a real dead body topples out of a showcase closet, she’s about to discover there is such a thing as bad publicity. To save her fledgling business and not get killed by the competition, Tobi takes on a new pet project: solving the murder. But with a stressed-out parrot as the only witness to the crime, Tobi will really have to wing it to put the cagey killer behind bars.

Review of Death in Advertising
Review (4 Stars): Death in Advertising was a fun, quirky mystery and I loved the humor that was laced throughout the story, which made it an absolute delight to read. Tobi was a great character that you can instantly connect with that is trying to build her advertising business and doing whatever she can to pay the bills. I loved the pet store aspect of this story because it provided me insight on what happens behind the scenes and provided a different background to this new series that I haven’t seen before. The mystery was also well-written and complex making it difficult for me to figure out the killer until the final reveal. I loved Death in Advertising and looking forward to the next book in the series.
Thank you for the lovely review! I’m so glad you enjoyed Death in Advertising.
Thanks for the review and the chance to win.. I am reading the Sewing Circle series and just finished the Amish ones. Looking forward to reading what I am sure will be another great one!
