Pit Bulls are Sweet . . . and that’s no mystery!
(previously published as Pit Perfect in 2016)
When cougar-shifter Lily Mason moves to Moonrise, Missouri, she wishes for only three things from the town and its human population. . . to find a job, to find a place to live, and to live as a human, not a therianthrope.
Lily gets more than she bargains for when a rescue pit bull named Smooshie rescues her from an oncoming car, and it’s love at first sight. Thanks to Smooshie, Lily’s first two wishes are granted by Parker Knowles, the owner of the Pit Bull Rescue center, who offers her a job at the shelter and the room over his garage for rent.
Lily’s new life as an integrator is threatened when Smooshie finds Katherine Kapersky, the local church choir leader and head of the town council, dead in the field behind the rescue center. Unfortunately, there are more suspects than mourners for the elderly town leader. Can Lily keep her less-than-human status under wraps? Or will the killer, who has pulled off a nearly Pit Perfect murder, expose her to keep Lily and her dog from digging up the truth?
Fall in love with Lily Mason, the shifter who only wants to live as a human, and her pit bull Smooshie, a rescue dog who in the end may be the one doing the rescuing!
Pit Perfect Murder, Book 1 of the Barkside of the Moon Mysteries from USA Today bestselling paranormal cozy mystery author Renee George, is an exciting tale of mystery and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat. A clean read full of humor and small town charm.
Review by Twinsie Angie
I purchased the audio book with my credits.
Hello Pittie momma so of course I had to grab it. Then when I saw the main character Lily is a shifter….uhm paranormal are my jam so yessssss score score score!!
I will admit I am not a giant mystery reader but I loved the format and the comedy of the story, so it hit me in the right spot.
Lily has been surrounded by sadness her whole life. She leaves home to find a long-lost uncle she never knew existed. Uncle/Cousin Buzz wasn’t so keen on keeping his niece/cousin in town buuut they start to bond. If you wanna know the uncle/cousin and niece/cousin story line I guess you need to read the story.
Lily is wondering through town when a pit bull runs up and adopts her as her person. Lily also meets her new friend, Smooshies, owner and smitten is a word you could use. Parker is kind and gentle plus kinda hot for a human so when he is accused of murder……Lily can’t handle it and is off to use her paranormal powers to solve the case. No offense but she really was an awful person in live…old Katherine. *Growls*
I really enjoyed the who-done-it and getting to meet the characters in the town. I personally can’t wait to see Buzz settle down, but I really want to see Parker and Lily maybe *wiggles eyes* admit some feelings for one another. But Parker’s dad was also the best ever. Honestly other then the old bitty who died, I loved the town. LOL

USA Today Bestselling author Renee George writes paranormal mysteries and romances because she loves all things whodunit, Otherworldly, and weird. Also, she wishes her pittie, the adorable Kona Princess Warrior, and her beagle, Josie the Incontinent Princess, could talk. Or at least be more like Scooby-Doo and help her unmask villains at the haunted house up the street.
When she’s not writing about mystery-solving werecougars or the adventures of a hapless psychic living among shapeshifters, she is preyed upon by stray kittens who end up living in her house because she can’t say no to those sweet, furry faces. (Someone stop telling them where she lives!)
She resides in Mid-Missouri with her family and spends her non-writing time doing really cool stuff…like watching TV and cleaning up dog poop.
