Zoe, a animal rescuer and owner of "Zoe's Zoo" where she rescues stray animals and her fiance, Zac are the perfect couple, Zac is the kind of guy that will do anything to make Zoe happy and rescue her out of every hair brained scheme she seems to get  herself into something I love about him with their upcoming wedding Zoe still has time to find a dead body and find time to investigate what is discovered to be a murder . Zoe is jogging with her dog, Charlie when she finds who is known as "Pat Rat Nelson" dead in a unknown run down pick up truck in front of a local bar. "Pat Rat" is known around town to the merchants on Main Street, digging in their dumpsters behind each of their businesses for digging up "treasures" he is not homeless as his cabin is surrounded by the treasures he finds.

Zoe is also faced with her best friends Ellie and Levi's uncertain future of their relationship and Zoe and Zac are also dealing with  young children that they have welcomed into their lives, Scooter, Tucker and Alex. Alex is also facing an unknown future with regards to her education, being bullied because of her high IQ and Pi a sixteen year old that Zac has hired to work at Zac's software company after Pi hacked a program he was developing. Heading off to each of the businesses on Main Street Zoe talks to each of the merchants to see what they know about "Pat Rat Nelson's" murder and "Pack Rat has been seen around town with "Stubby" a one armed man that "Pack Rat" is reluctant to hang around.

 Dealing with Zoe's mother-in-law from hell and Zac's crazy family but someone from Zac's crazy family, Nona soon becomes Zoe's ally to help solve the murder before Chief Salinger can.
With characters that keep your wanting to read the next book in this exciting series. Zoe, Zac, Ellie, Levi and the kids and even the animals are treasures to behold and you want and need to know what is going to happen in each of their lives. Conflicts that you hope will result in happy endings. With each new book I have found that I love and care for these characters more and more.

 I hope that we see the crazy senior, with the pink Harley from Zac's family, Nona in future books. She certainly brought some excitement and she seemed like a perfect side kick but also Zoe and Nona are like a odd couple of crime fighting but it still seemed like they were the perfect fit together.Highly entertaining with unforgetable and zany characters that seem all too real, a picturesque setting and a fast passed read. I always want to know what trouble Zoe will find herself in next and I admire her heart and determination to solve a murder. To top that all off a wedding that will have your crying tears of joy.
