Well, hello, new series that I will follow closely until the very end. I picked up this book for the fun pun of the title, and the pretty blue cover, and of course, the fact that the plot was an interesting one with a lot of promise, and let me tell you, sometimes, it is okay to judge a book by its cover and its title.
For those of you who want me to skip the fangirling and go straight to the point, let me introduce you to Deidre ‘Foxtrot’ Lancaster. She’s the executive assistant of one eccentric rich boss, Zelda ‘ZZ’ Zoransky. Life in the Zoransky estate can be described in one word as ‘chaos’. I would’ve liked to say I exaggerated, but if I were in Foxtrot’s shoes, well, I would’ve had a blast. But also been very tired. She deals with many different guests and their sometimes unusual demands, almost every kind of animal ZZ wishes to adopt, from cats and dogs to big, bad and ugly. She has to manage the household, arrange for all that’s needed for the big estate. And lately, more responsibility, this time in the supernatural variety, falls on her shoulders too. Oh, and her workplace is near an animal graveyard which requires her immediate attention and savior abilities.
