Clever story with characters that make me hope there will be more forthcoming! S.C. Torrington has an eye for the quirky details in everyday life that may hide much more fascinating (or even nefarious) realities.

The title sparked my curiosity, and it continued to peak my interest as I was reading. It is a unique premise for a mystery series. The quirky characters put a smile on my face, yet kept me guessing. I look forward to reading the next mystery from S.C. Torrington.

An interesting mystery that was much more than I thought it would be. A couple of plot crutches help bring closure at the end, but I liked the way it matured from a small beginnings into a fuller adventure.

A very good short story with an original premise. The characters and motivations are pretty logical and believable, with a couple of unexpected twists. A good read for a free afternoon.

Great new mystery series from writer S.C. Torrington. Breezy, funny and fast-paced, Torrington brings her knowledge of shore wildlife and knack for quirky characters and weaves them together into a fun, murderous ride in "The Mystery of the Dead Squirrels." It will leave you hungry for more of her DelMarVa Mysteries ...

The squirrel had been dead for quite a while. Then another & another. The Community Animal
Control had been informed by Ms. Minerva it was happening all over town. Cindi’s boss didn’t want to hear about it. Cindi Stevenson (23, .11 BAL, Cynthia) the dispatcher for the Pinecone Cove Animal Control Center had been found dead at Osprey Point Canal. The Rustlers Inn was hosting a fundraiser for the funeral expenses on behalf of Cindi’s family in Utah.
What could the connection to Cindi & the dead squirrels be?
Awesome book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written mystery, crime short story (book). It wasn’t always easy to read/follow & never a dull moment from start/finish. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of bizarre exciting scenarios & a great set of characters. That said I will rate it at 4/5 stars for this short story (book).
Thank you for the free book

Squirrels are dying of unknown causes. The local community reacts not only with complacence but with downright hostility. Even humans who have expressed interest in the phenomenon have died. Why? Well, to find out the answer to that, Pilgrim, you're going to have to read the book.

Torrington has written an entertaining wee mystery that will draw the reader along for the ride and feel satisfied at the end. Hiser human characters are real: sometimes devious, often without much of a clue, courageous, and outrageous. WARNING! This story may leave readers with an unnatural desire to read more of Torrington's books.

You have been warned.
