About the Book: 

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 . . .

My Review:

Left Fur Dead is a cute first book in J.M. Griffin's new Jules & Bun Mystery series. Juliette "Jules" Bridge owns and operates Fur Bridge Farms, a sanctuary for injured, abused, and neglected rabbits. She has help by way of Jessica "Jess" Plain, a vet school student and other student helpers. Jules also has an unusual bunny named Bun. I enjoyed Bun's ability to communicate telepathically with Jules.

When Jules and Bun are out for a walk, they discover a body. The body belongs to Arty, a mime Jules occasionally works with at children's parties. As the police investigate, Jules and Bun decide to try their hand - and paw - at sleuthing. During the hunt for Arty's killer, Jules also has people breaking into her barn and trying to release all the rehab bunnies, and a person from her past reappears - earlier than she expected. As more suspects are revealed, Jules falls further into dangerous territory.

An entertaining story, Left Fur Dead is an easy read filled with wonderful characters. The world building is done well and I was able to visualize every scene and felt like I was there. If Book 1 is any indication, the Jules & Bun Mystery series is off to a great start. I enjoyed Left Fur Dead and look forward to Book 2.

I was provided a review copy.
