This is my first time reading a book from this series. I enjoy cozy mysteries and anything with four legged companions is always a big plus for me. It starts out innocent enough. Andy has big plans with his buddies for the weekend but first he needs to stop in at the Beaver Tail Resort to help his Aunt Bev. It’s the big event for Girls’ Weekend Out and she could use the extra hand. You know what they say about best laid plans. Andy’s goes out the window when a sudden snow storm leaves him stranded in a hotel full of women, one of the few other males present being his dog, King Harald. Events take a bizarre twist when someone is attacked and a valuable piece of jewelry is stolen. It’s time for King Harald to start poking his sleuthing snout into some snow drifts and for Andy to dust off his own crime solving abilities to flush out the thief before someone really gets hurt. This is the third book in the series so I’m starting out clueless. The author filled me in enough on past events to clear up most of my confusion and I settled in for a fun mystery. I was slow to solve the mystery as the crime didn’t happen until almost the halfway point of the story. Don’t let that deter you. Getting to know the character’s and touring the resort was a lot of fun. One of those fun character’s is King Harald. He’s a dog’s dog, full of mischief and an almost accidental talent for solving crimes. His ‘owner’ Andy has his hands full following his clues. He’s a dog after all. It’s not like he can tell Andy what he’s discovered. Lots of fun, a twisted mystery, and some delicious food and beverages left me hungry and thirsty for more of this cozy series. I raise my glass of Biberschwanzes to an adventure best served cold.

The perfect book to cozy up with! KING HARALD'S SNOW JOB by Richard Audry The Third Canine Cozy Andy Skyberg is looking forward to a weekend of fun with old pals and a new lady friend. But before he heads out for his weekend down in the Cities he agrees to help his Aunt Bev. She's managing a Girl's Weekend Out event and Holiday Faire at the Beaver Trail Resort and Andy will be there to make sure the vendors are happy and have everything they need. But King Harald has a bad feeling about all of this. Something bad is going to happen and Andy just won't listen to him! But what could go wrong helping for a few hours on a cold December day? I always enjoy hanging out with Andy Skyberg and I love King Harald. The two make a great duo, never wanting to get involved, but always landing in the midst of a crime. Yet, without really trying...and definitely not knowing what they're doing (in regard to criminal behavior at any rate) they always figure things out! In KING HARALD'S SNOW JOB a blizzard, as well as his own moral compass, force Andy to take a more active role in investigating the crime, in this case assault and theft. Unique characters and a definite sense of place are the foundations of this story, combining to make it feel like home, regardless of where your home truly is. My favorite part of the Canine Cozy mysteries is when the story is told from Harald's perspective. We get a glimpse into the canine mind and get Harald's take on things without humanizing him. The December snow, the holiday shopping, and the laid back demeanor of Anders and Harold make this the perfect book to cozy up with! FTC Disclosure – The publisher sent me a copy of this book in the hopes I would review it.

Dollycas’s Thoughts King Harald is a very special canine, “part Chesapeake and part moose”. He stole my heart in the first book, The Karma of King Harald, and still holds his place two books later. In King Harald’s Snow Job. Andy and King Harald have a plan for their weekend that is blown away by a huge blizzard leaving them stuck at the Beaver Tail Resort. They are joined by a bunch of women at the resort for a Girls’ Out Weekend, an author debuting her new book, a crazy fan of the author, a hockey team, many stranded travelers, and a jewel THIEF! Unbeknownst to Andy, King Harald will play a key role in the return of the jewel. Maybe just in time for Andy to save just a little bit of his weekend plans. Here is Wisconsin we know all about snow and blizzards that drop several unexpected inches so I can sympathize with Andy. At least her wasn’t trapped alone and the resort had plenty of food and drink available. Except his was pulled right into the investigation, something he had hoped to avoid. Richard Audry has plowed Andy right into the middle of everything happening and takes us along for a delightful ride in mostly organized chaos. Andy arrives to help his Aunt Bev for just a few hours and he watches the snow just keep coming down. Of course, Harald loves the snow and does all he can when let outside to run and frolic and even take off on his merry way leaving Andy to venture out in the cold himself. Funny how dogs get their way leaving their persons behind. The author does fill the story with quite of bit of humor, some of it comes from getting Harald’s own point of view on several situations. Some are laugh out loud funny and also have me wondering just what my own dogs are thinking sometimes around here. The good thing about investigating the jewel theft is that it is pretty safe to assume the culprit is trapped in the hotel like everyone else. The bad thing is that the theyr could be absolutely anyone trapped in the hotel. Several twists reveal things that start to eliminate suspects but the climatic reveal took me by surprise. Mr. Audry does an excellent job of snowing us readers and diverting our attention elsewhere until the end. The characters that join Andy in this story are all unique and so well written. I could see each and every one clearly in my mind. The resort and the weather were aptly described too forming very clear visualizations. Again, I am very familiar with the weather, but I found myself reaching for a blanket soon after beginning this story and it really wasn’t chilly outside. Mr. Audry is a wonderful storyteller. You will quickly find yourself immersed in this book and will have a difficult time putting in down. With winter coming fast this would be a fun book to read curled up by the fire. Mystery, comedy, great characters, all in a setting full of snow, do add up to a perfect escape and one I highly recommend!
