Guest Post
Moxie Bloom is the owner of Sylvan Creek, Pennsylvania’s unique salon for people and pets, Spa and Paw. She’s also best friends with petsitter and amateur sleuth Daphne Templeton. Moxie is supremely comfortable in her own skin — especially when she’s wearing her favorite vintage clothing from the 1940s and 50s.

She’s the kind of friend who will always have your back — yet inadvertently say precisely the wrong thing, at precisely the wrong time.

I’ll let Moxie tell you a little bit about herself, and what it’s like to be BFFs with someone who’s constantly stumbling across bodies.

Daphne Templeton and I have been best friends for as long as I can remember.

That’s not true. I have some memories before kindergarten, and they don’t involve Daphne at all. But the minute we met on the playground, we were kindred spirits.

Of course, Daphne is way more adventurous than me. She’s been all over the world, while I am content to stay in Sylvan Creek.

I’ve got the greatest garret apartment, above a used book store. It has a balcony that overlooks the whole town, so I have the best view of the annual Howl-o-Ween pet parade. I have a wonderful business, grooming dogs, cats and humans. (Humans are surprisingly squirmy.) And there’s a new coffee shop coming to Sylvan Creek, too, called Oh, Beans. I’ll be able to get mochas again. So why would I ever need to leave?

The only thing wrong with Sylvan Creek is the high number of murders, most of which get blamed on Daphne and the people around her. She does seem to attract homicide. Which is not her fault. She’s actually a very peaceful person.

She’s also destined to be with Detective Jonathan Black, although I don’t think either one of them will ever admit that. So maybe that prediction is wrong.

Anyway, if you are ever looking for a haircut or a shave, and you’re in the greater Sylvan Creek area — which is not that large — please look me up. And be careful! My town is the most dangerous safe place on earth!

The Tail Waggin’ Winterfest is the highlight of the season in the famously pet-friendly Pocono Mountains town of Sylvan Creek. But despite attractions like an ice sculpture display, a dogsled race, and gourmet hot chocolate, Daphne Templeton finds herself annoyed by TV producer Lauren Savidge, who’s filming the festivities. She’s critical, controlling, and as chilly as the January air. Daphne would like to tell her to go jump in a lake — and as a matter of fact, that’s exactly what they’re both going to do.

It’s the first-ever polar bear plunge in Lake Wallapawakee, and Daphne and Lauren are among the eighty or so people who charge into the frigid water to raise funds for animals in need. Daphne makes it back to shore — with the help of a mysterious St. Bernard — but Lauren is dragged out stone cold dead. Now, with her trusty basset hound Socrates at her side, Daphne intends to assist Detective Jonathan Black in his investigation — whether he wants her to or not.

Includes recipes for homemade pet treats!
