Bagels and Blackmail by C. A. Phipps

Why would someone steal Big Red?

More than a pet…
… so much more, it turns out that he’s not the only one taken. It’s a catastrophe for the owners who, like Maddie, considers them family members.

Where are they being hidden?

While the Sheriff, who happens to be her ex-boyfriend, is doing what he can to solve the mystery, Maddie can’t sit by and watch.

Going against her darling Gran’s wishes, she once again decides to do her own sleuthing—with a little help from her friends.

If you love your pet, this cozy mystery will have you cheering for Maddie, because she won’t give in until every animal is home!

The Maple Lane Mysteries are light cozy mysteries featuring a quirky cat-loving bakery owner who discovers she’s a talented amateur sleuth.

“Bagels and Blackmail is the second book in the Maple Lane Cozy Series and it’s another great story.
Madeline has decided to bring on extra help in the bakery, she’s decided to try making bagels as another baked good to sell at the bakery, and pets have started disappearing in Maple Falls. Unfortunately Big Red Maddie’s 11 year old Maine Coon cat is one of the animals that’s disappeared. Will Maddie see Big Red again?” ~ Alisha Collins
