Review: Belinda Blake and the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing (Exotic Pet-Sitter #2) by Heather Day Gilbert

About the Book
Exotic pet-sitter Belinda Blake is nervous about her new job at the White Pine Wolf Preserve, but it turns out that the care and feeding of wild carnivores may be the least dangerous part of the gig . . .
Pet-sitter Belinda Blake is no stranger to dealing with wild animals, but she’s wary when the owner of the Greenwich, Connecticut, preserve asks her to help out with her “fluffy darlings.” Her caution seems justified on her very first day, when she discovers a tour guide—dead, bloodied, and surrounded by wolves in the enclosure.

Was it death by predator or something more sinister? The body count rises, but something’s not adding up. As she gets to know the rescued wolves and wolf-dog hybrids better, Belinda realizes that her human colleagues are not above suspicion. With help from her own “pack”—her pregnant sister, Red the chauffeur/bodyguard, and hunky farmer Jonas—Belinda is hot on the killer’s tail, but if she doesn’t find him soon, he’ll do more than muzzle her to keep the truth from escaping.

My Thoughts

Belinda Blake and the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing was another fun addition to the series. It was a quick and fast paced read that flew by.

Belinda's nervous about her new pet-sitting job at the White Pine Wolf Preserve. She has a bad feeling about the whole thing, but she doesn't feel like she can turn it down. She needs the work. She hopes her fears are unfounded. But when she stumbles across a dead body in one of the wolf enclosures, she questions her decision to take the job and stay with it. Did the wolves kill the man or could it have been murder? Belinda's on the hunt to find out the truth.

The mystery was great. There were plenty of viable suspects with strong motives and suspicious attitudes. I had a pretty strong feeling about who the culprit was and was excited when I was correct in my assumptions. If you're a fan of cozy mysteries, I highly recommend checking out this series. I'm excited for the next one.
