I'm an animal lover...BIG time, so this series is right up my alley. Stan is a great character and her new friends in Frog Ledge are, too. I love all the animals and the fact that the people all seem to love them so much, though Jake needs to get a better handle on Duncan! I was really at a loss as to who the killer was, so Ms. Mugavero did a good job on setting every thing up. I'm looking forward to the next one, especially since it will be a Halloween tale from reading the sneak peek! RECOMMEND!!
