On Fur Bridge Farm, Jules cares for rescued rabbits. But when a killer strikes, she’ll need a rabbit to rescue her . . .

Juliette “Jules” Bridge prides herself on the tender rehabilitation she provides for injured or abused rabbits on her New Hampshire rescue farm, but she has a very special relationship with one bunny in particular. Bun is a black-and-white rabbit who happens to have the ability to communicate through mental telepathy. Once she got over the shock, Jules found her furry friend had a lot to say.

One frigid March morning on their walk together, Bun spots a body. The police identify the frozen stiff as Arthur Freeman, aka Arty the Mime. Jules and Arty knew each other on the children’s party circuit, where he’d perform magic tricks and she had an educational rabbit petting pen. With Bun egging her on, Jules decides it’s time they hop to it and put their heads together to discover who silenced the mime. But their investigation leads them down a rabbit hole of more suspects and lies, while a killer sets a trap for them . . .

Review 1

If you’ve ever wanted to know more about how to care for rabbits, this is the cozy mystery for you. Fur Bridge Farm is Jules’ home and where she runs her rabbit farm taking care of a plethora of bunnies including ones who have been rescued from abusive homes.

When Jules and her special best bud, Bun the rabbit, discover a dead body and Fur Bridge Farm is faced with an intruder determined to ‘free’ the rabbits they find themselves in the middle of an investigation.

I took a little while to really get into the story despite the interesting setting but then the action kicked in and my attention was caught.  The mystery is two-fold as we have to figure out who is the murderer, who is the intruder and how they are related. We meet several potential culprits along the way, including Bun’s absolutely awful former owner, and have to weed through the red herrings and real clues.  I do wish a more conclusive trail was laid to the real killer.  Some very key info is withheld that makes it impossible to figure out motives.  Yet, we do get a nice juicy trail to the who of the matter.

We also meet some fun characters along the way.  Meredith is the sheriff’s delightful wife who is addicted to shopping for yarn and keeping her husband in check!  Then there’s the mysterious Andrew who unexpectedly shows up and brings a conundrum of his own.  Bun and Jules, despite never having solved a crime before, are very cocky about their abilities. That contrasts against a caring sheriff who also comes off a bit brusque with his repetitive warnings that they stay out of his investigation. 

There’s a solid backstory laid out in this first in the series book, providing a lot of potential for future stories set in the picturesque New Hampshire town of Windermere.

Left Fur Dead is a cute cozy mystery featuring even cuter rabbits as part of the narrative and one special bunny as a lead detective.

I give this one 3/5 hopping espresso shots.
