Miss Ruffles Inherits Everything is Nancy Martin's new cozy mystery and it is a charmer. Yes there is a problem in that MissRuffles is a dog and the family and Mule Stop, Texas community is in disarray at the prospect of such an important fortune going to the dog. Dog sitter Sunny who is new to Texas will have to find the murder, keep the dog safe and look after the famous roses maybe with a little assist from a cowboy lawyer who fills the jeans nicely. With wit and whimsey, Nancy offers a view of the local characters no doubt gathered during trips to visit her grands in Texas. It is a fun and fancy Texas tale that will keep you smiling long after you close the book.
