They say every dog has his day.
Well today I’ve had mine.
Hey, I’m Albertus Eagle and it turns out I’m an unwitting pet detective. I haven’t always been such a successful legal beagle, but when I’m confronted with a case that is so personal I can’t ignore it, I discover I have a passion for finding those who don’t want to be found.
Cleo the cat? Well, she tags along for the ride.
I’ve not only found myself a new home after the untimely demise of my previous owner, but I’ve also made amends with the cat. It turns out she’s not that bad, really.
On top of that, what sends shivers racing down my spine to my paws, is that we’ve fingered a killer.
Because you humans underestimate us animals. And while you go about your business ignoring our very existence, the cat and I are listening and taking notes.
This is the first full length novel in the Albertus Eagle detective beagle series of animal cozy mysteries, starring Albertus Eagle, and his two sidekicks, Cleo the cat and Bella Schuhmann, the smart human who actually understands him. In this wonderful full length book packed with humour and satire, we see the world of murder and intrigue set up through the eyes of a loyal dog turned amateur sleuth.
Funny & Entertaining!
What a delightful read! Funny, entertaining AND a bit of a mystery too!
Albertus Beagle and Cleo the cat lived in a veritable paradise with their owner, Milly, until her death. Lucky enough to be rehomed together, they miss the large garden they used to be free to roam. Living in a luxurious apartment doesn’t quite live up to their expectations but they both know how lucky they are to have Bella in their lives. Happily, Bella has an affinity with both of them and soon realises that she has not only acquired two new pets, but it’s down to her to help them catch a killer . . .
This is such fun! The author has nailed the characteristics of both Albie and Cleo and writes in a very entertaining style. Investigating gives both Albie and ‘the cat’ the chance to show off their own personalities, and this is a very quirky read and one which made be smile as I read along. A clever puzzle too – I, for one, never suspected the real culprit. A super light-hearted read and a series I’ll be very happy to follow. I can’t find fault in any way, so in my book that makes it worth five shiny stars!

Meet the Author
Chloe Grace is the cozy mystery pen name for romantic mystery author, Karen Botha. While she doesn’t understand animals quite as well as Bella in the Albertus Eagle Detective Beagle cozy mysteries, she does chat along to her rescue dog, Shadow, pretty much all day.
And she’s sure that he chats back.
Chloe lives with Shadow and her hubby in a small outpost of London city—funnily enough it’s a little like where Bella and Albie live. As a family they like to go on walks in the local woods and throw a tennis ball until their respective arms ache, which is usually before Shadow shows any hint of exhaustion.
While her first romance novels were inspired by true life events, the Albertus Eagle series are complete imagination – although her conversations with Shadow can’t be ignored.
