Loose Screw by Rae Davies

Loose Screw, Dusty Deals Mystery Book 1Loose Screw by Rae Davies is the first in the Dusty Deals mystery series.

From the cover:
Lucy Mathews, crime reporter turned antiques dealer, avoids confrontation like a home perm. She even lets a cat shove her around.
When Lucy trips over the body of a buckskin-clad relics trader, her ex-boss asks her to cover the story. She tries to tell him no, but old habits die hard and soon she finds herself directly in the path of a killer and the exasperating, if attractive, detective in charge.
Can Lucy catch a killer or is this the last confrontation for her—period?
I liked the setting in Montana and being a crime reporter and antiques dealer gives Lucy access to a lot of resources for solving a crime. Throw in an exasperating yet handsome detective and there are all the makings of a great mystery. Of course any protagonist who owns a dog (a malamute that is often mistakenly referred to as a Husky by the locals) is a big plus for me. This is a series I will definitely read more of.
This book is currently free for Kindle.

Yep, including a critter is always a bonus!
