Review – Death in Advertising by Laura Bradford

31385926
Synopsis:
When Tobi Tobias decided to open her own ad agency, having to moonlight in a pet shop wasn’t part of her vision . . . of course, neither was murder.Sometimes when opportunity knocks, the door you open leads to a closet. That’s certainly the case for Tobi, whose weekends spent cleaning cages in her best friend’s pet shop may soon be over. She’s just landed her first big break—Zander Closet Company needs a catchy campaign slogan ASAP, and Tobi thinks she’s got the right hook to knock ’em dead: “When we’re done, even your skeletons will have a place.”

But when a real dead body topples out of a showcase closet, she’s about to discover there is such a thing as bad publicity. To save her fledgling business and not get killed by the competition, Tobi takes on a new pet project: solving the murder. But with a stressed-out parrot as the only witness to the crime, Tobi will really have to wing it to put the cagey killer behind bars.

 
 
My Review:
5 out of 5 stars
★★★★★

Death in Advertising was my first book by Laura Bradford but I am certain it will NOT be my last.  I’m definitely going to be reading her other books.  I absolutely loved this book!  This is a very promising and wonderful start to this series.  The author has created a wonderful cast of characters that I’m hoping will continue to make appearances in later books in the series.  I really enjoyed Tobi’s character.  I found myself laughing out loud at a lot of her inner dialogue.  She is such a fun person and is very easy to relate to.  I picture Tobi as someone that I could definitely be friends with.  She has a wonderful support system in her friends and grandfather.  I really liked seeing her relationships with those people.  Andy is another character that I liked a lot and am hoping (fingers crossed) things go well and we’ll see him in future books.  The mystery surrounding the murder really drew me in.  You definitely learn while reading this book that things aren’t always as they appear to be and you shouldn’t make assumptions.  There were a few different suspects to choose from and the killer ended up being someone that I wouldn’t have suspected at all.  Everything was explained in a way that made sense and the background storylines were wrapped up as well.  I’m so glad I decided to read this book.  I’ve found a new go-to author for mysteries.

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
