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...

Here is what I thought

Left Fur Dead is the first in the Jules and Bun series and it’s about Jules who ones a rabbit farm where she takes in domesticated rabbits that have been abused by their owners or no longer wanted. One of her favorites and the one she takes along with her everywhere is Bun. Bun is unusual because he can communicate with Jules through her mind. He is very talkative and one of the reasons his last owner got rid of him.

One one of their walks Jules and Bun discover a dead body and soon find out he was Artie the mime. Artie had resently started harassing her about her rabbits and how she shouldn’t keep them. Now it seems someone else is taking up where he left off as she has been having things happen around her farm.

Sheriff Carter is trying to figure out what happened but with things happening around the farm she can’t just leave it to him and decides to do some snooping on her own leading to her getting in a mess a few times and Sheriff Carter not being happy with her.

I really thought this was cute and I loved the fact that the pet was something besides a dog or cat. I love rabbits as we use to raise them so I just loved Bun. He was so funny and really loves to solve crimes and is probably the reason that Jules starts investigating anyway…lol. I also liked Jules and all the other cast of characters but I think Bun stole the show.

If you love fun cozy mysteries then you should give this one a try!

Things get pretty hare-y when rabbit rescue and rehab expert Jules Bridge and her brilliant bunny go undercover to catch a murderer hiding in plain sight . . .
When Juliette “Jules” Bridge began caring for rabbits on her beloved Fur Bridge Farm in rural New Hampshire, she never imagined she'd be solving murders with one of them. Not only can her
black-and-white rabbit, Bun, communicate with her telepathically, he happens to be a pretty sharp sleuth. Bun comes along as part of a petting pen for a birthday celebration—but for one of the guests, the fun is soon over. Evelyn Montgomery is found lying in the bushes with a knife in her chest, and the distraught hostess begs Jules to help . . .
To her surprise, so does Sheriff Jack Carver—who usually discourages Jules from getting involved in criminal investigations. But now she's drafted at the last minute to fill in for Evelyn as a judge at a rabbit show, and Jack wants her to go undercover. Yet as she and Bun expose the dark—albeit fluffy—underbelly of the world of rabbit competition, a killer is ready to act as judge, jury, and executioner . . .

In Who’s Dead, Doc Jules and Bun are at it again. Jules is at a birthday party as she has set up a petting pen for it with her rabbits. Things go wrong when Jules and Bun find the body of Evelyn Montgomery. Bun can’t wait to start solving the crime but Jules is not so sure but then Sheriff Carter actually asks Jules if she could help because he was short handed and she is in a place that she could help. Evelyn was going to be a judge at a pet show and Jules was going to enter the show but the rabbit she was entering gets sick, so she is asked to be a judge. This puts her in even a better place to snoop with Bun.

She about gives Sheriff Carter a heart attack with how many times she almost gets herself in some serious trouble as someone is really not wanting her to snoop. She also holds back some info from the Sheriff making him a bit upset but in the end they figure out whodunit.

Again I really loved Bun he is just so cute! Though sometimes I think he likes trying to figure things out a bit to much and that gets Jules in trouble. I really like Jules though and love how much she loves her rabbits and her farm. I really like the Sheriff and his wife, plus Jules friends. It just has a fun cast of characters. It really had a good mystery as I had a hard time figuring it out and didn’t have the whole things figured out but parts of it.

I think this is starting to be a new favorite series as it’s just a lot of fun! Recommend it!
