    1. Book on CD read by Hillary HuberBook two in the series featuring zookeeper Teddy Bentley has our heroine discovering the body of co worker and TV darling Koala Kate in the harbor She obviously fell overboard after the previous night s party, and in a drunken stupor drowned Or did she I like this cozy series for the information about the animals and the relationships between Teddy and her mother, Caro, and boyfriend, Sheriff Joe Rejas Webb gives us plenty of suspects and twists in the plot that k [...]

    2. I brought this after reading the first book when it was offered as a freebie.The book isn t prefect, but it is still an enjoyable read Webb is at her best when writing about the animals, and this book includes several funny scenes at a news studio where Teddy is giving an animal talk I also liked some of the character development.To be fair, though, I found the ending to be somewhat weak I couldn t understand why Teddy simply didn t tell the deputy in the first place But still, it was a very enj [...]

    3. Teddy returns as keeper of the Gunn Zoo in coastal California She is a liveaboarder in the harbor, living in a converted trawler The night after a party on a neighboring boat, a party that included many of her co workers, her morning routine is disrupted by the discovery of a body overboard It turns out to be another keeper, Kate Nido Kate s job included publicity and public relations for the zoo.Teddy s Sherrif boyfriend and her rich, socialite mother spend their time encouraging entreating Ted [...]

    4. While I enjoyed this read, and The Anteater of Death before it, I do take the author to task for Outback Bill s language He appears to be modelled on Mick J Crocodile Dundee but even our Mick didn t use the word sheila , or throw in every old slang word he could think of And then to offer translations, presumably for her American readers You mustn t underestimate the intelligence of your readers to figure out what is meant by the context It s still English after all.I didn t consider this as goo [...]

    5. In the 2nd book in the series, zookeeper Theodora Teddy finds the body of a fellow zookeeper floating in the water beside her houseboat Koala Kate has been murdered Teddy is asked to take over many of Kate s responsibilities, including tv spots and PR stuff not Teddy s forte Teddy s boyfriend, Joe, is the local sheriff, trying to figure out who killed Kate I really enjoyed this I love all the extra animal info that is shared throughout the book I think I was actually interested in things other [...]

    6. All right, I liked this book, I did But.what is it with the recent trend of repeating things over and over in a story Yes, I know the zoo keeper is from Australia, your mom wants you to date somebody other than the sheriff, the Zoo director doesn t like her job and the Rhino keeper has a heart of gold, no need to keep telling me that every time you bring that character into the story.I thought the book was well written, a great cozy mystery I am not interested in reading any of the others in thi [...]

    7. I really tried to get into this book but just couldn t I did not care for the way she writes She also had annoying habits like translating people and animals Also I found an unusually high number of errors in this book.

    8. Another charming addition to the Gunn Zoo cozy mystery series As I mentioned in my previous review, I found Llama of Death on the shelf at my library and decided I d like to read it I love llamas A quick trip to fantasticfiction told me that I should read Anteater of Death and Koala of Death first, so here I am I still LOVE that the main character is a redhead like me Teddy Bentley is spunky and spirited and caring and fun and hardworking just as a redhead should be Ha ha ha She works in a large [...]

    9. I truly give it about 2.75 stars There were lots of errors throughout the book I may have a poor vocabulary, but it seemed to me that the author was trying to make Teddy sound sophisticated than she was Some random facts that aren t right I enjoyed the story itself It kept me wanting to read.

    10. Good plot that is well paced Interesting characters that you can t help like despite their human flaws Zoo animals make it a fun read.

    11. A fun read centering around a privately owned zoo with a zoo keeper who hangs out with millionaires and boat live aboarders.

    13. First Line I awoke during a pearly dawn to hear something bump against the Merilee s hull.Unfortunately that bump against the hull of Teddy Bentley s boat wasn t a wake up call from the resident sea otter who comes for breakfast every morning The bump turns out to be the body of Koala Kate, a fellow keeper at the Gunn Zoo and darling of Good Morning, San Sebastian s Koala Kate s Kuddly Kritters.Having been a guest at a party aboard the Gutterball the night before, it is assumed that Kate drank t [...]

    14.

    17. This is the second book in the series that I have listened to They are great entertainment On a light to serious scale, I would put them a serious than Stephanie Plum but less serious than Agatha Christie, probably the closet equivalent would be the quilting mysteries of Earlene Fowler The plotting in the book is very solid The main characters that continue from one book to the next are becoming well developed When you read a summary of the books, some of the cutesy names are given because tho [...]

    19. Very cool book with lots of zoological info that is shared in a natural manner Interesting characters and mystery I would highly recommend this one After my second read finished October 20, 2016 , I still enjoyed the book a lot, although some of the characters overreacted towards Teddy, especially Robin and Myra If a person works with animals, many of them dangerous, all day long, I think they would keep their moods in check, because extreme mood swings between humans with whom the animals are [...]

    24. OK, that is a fantastic title.Who knew that zoo mysteries were a thing This is the second one I ve read in the last month I liked the other one, but I really enjoyed this one.It s also a cozy mystery, where a random person in this case, Teddy, a zookeeper gets involved with a murder investigation, often by being the one to discover the body as is the case here.What I really like about this book is in spite of multiple dead bodies how upbeat it was The koala was cuddly, the baby anteater was cute [...]

    25. Since I don t normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here s the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won t be reading any from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won t go out of my way to read , But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I d pick it up.4 stars I really enjoyed t [...]

    27. Using the fictional Gunn Zoo in California s Central coast as a setting, this delightful cozy mystery series has humor, suspense, cute animals and a touch of romance Oh yeah, and a murder or two.If you are familiar with Betty Webb through her Lena Jones series Whoa This is not as issue oriented although conservation themes ran through the book and definitely not as dark Your taste will tell which is suited to you I enjoy them both, probably prefer Lena Jones You gotta love a mystery series hero [...]

    28. Another cute murder mystery featuring the koala at Gunn Zoo This book didn t have a chapter devoted to the thoughts of the koala That was the main thing that threw me off in the first book The Anteater of Death But, overall, I enjoyed how Teddy handled herself and would like to read about her But seriously, how many murders can her life take
