Synopsis from Goodreads:
Yoga instructor Kate Davidson’s life takes a chaotic turn once she agrees to not only be the doula for her pregnant best friend, but also play foster mother to two puppies. The chaos only gets worse when Kate finds the dead body of a philandering fertility doctor and Rachel, one of her yoga students, fleeing the scene.
Kate is convinced her student is innocent, and she sets out to find the real killer before her testimony condemns Rachel to a life behind bars. But her hands are full with caring for three dogs, teaching yoga classes, and gaining an unexpected crime-solving partner. If she’s not careful, Kate’s next yoga pose may be a fatal one.
There’s never a dull moment for yoga instructor, Kate Davidson. She is preparing to be the doula for her best friend who is having twins when she stumbles upon the murdered body of a noted fertility doctor. The doctor happens to be the husband of one of her students, who had a huge fight with her husband in front of Kate. Kate’s complete belief in her student sends her on a chase for the real killer.
In the meantime, her boyfriend brings home two rambunctious puppies. The puppies, plus Kate’s own special needs dog Bella, is taking up all their time as well as adding much friction in their relationship.
As Kate investigates the murder, she discovers much more than she bargained for – not only for her student but for three unsuspecting dogs.
I love this series. I read the first two books and enjoyed them. I still have to read the third book, which is on my Kindle. This one is the fourth and is actually my favorite of the series so far. It's fast-paced with all the ingredients to keep you guessing to the end.
The characters are all well-written and have depth to them. The plot is captivating with so many different possible outcomes. The author gives us so many clues to solve the mystery and I still missed all the signs of the real culprit. A Fatal Twist has a captivating storyline with an interesting cast of characters. I was up until late at night reading this one, but it was worth it.
