Pru Marlowe has a special sensitivity to animals, and since she’s an animal behavorist, her gift makes her the best in the small resort town of Beauville. It can also get her into trouble. Pru discovers the murdered body of a man she had noticed the previous night while having dinner with her policeman boyfriend in a popular restaurant. The man was overly loud and rude, and Pru’s first impression of him wasn’t good. The murdered man was with a beautiful ski bunny, and Pru, while sticking her nose into the case, ends up being hired to help her with her dog. There are some characters who are connected to organized crime, and Pru finds herself in danger, especially after being told to stay out of the case.

While the novel is well-written, and certainly a cozy for animal lovers, Pru’s powers aren’t particularly believable. However, it’s fun to read a light novel where the protagonist has powers that most readers don’t. There are twists and turns in this novel, and of course, a surprise ending.

The Pru Marlowe Pet Noir series is one for animal lovers, and When Bunnies Go Bad is the sixth in the series. The book has a lot of humor, as well as interesting scenarios having to do with pets in the community. Readers who love animals and enjoy light mystery thrillers with a bit of suspense will enjoy this unique series.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this novel.
