This was perfect for a cross country flight. Funny, interesting, and a little romance. Can't wait to read the rest of the series!

**4.5 Stars**

Another cozy mystery that hit all of the right spots for me. The new setting allowed for the exploration of new characters, as well as the development of characters from the last book. I think I wanted a bit more development of some of the side characters from the last book, but I'm glad they still played important roles in this story.

First in the Monster Hunter Mystery series featuring Morgan Carter, bookstore owner and cryptozoologist. Several bodies are found washed up on the beaches of Washington Island in Lake Michigan, all bearing unusual injuries that look like bites from a giant, unknown animal. Police Chief Jon Flanders turns to Morgan for help in identifying the creature that may be responsible.

I loved the setting in Wisconsin’s Door County, an area I have often visited, including going to Washington Island. Of course, I’ve never come across any kind of store remotely like Odds and Ends, and I think I would find the mummified corpse too creepy and off-putting to spend any time in such a store. Whatever.

Morgan seems capable and certainly intelligent and a keen observer. The background story of her parents’ murder helped explain her issues with trusting others, especially men who might show any sort of romantic interest. And I do love her dog, Newt. What a champion!

My fellow book club members pointed out many inconsistencies in how the police chief behaved, as well as the implausibility of the final solution. But most agreed it was a fast and entertaining read, with the added interest in cryptozoology, and especially being set in our home state.

I’m not sure I’ll continue with the series, though I might just to spend more time with Newt.
