    6. I received a free paperback copy of Fire at Will's, An Estela Nogales Mystery Book One by Cherie O'Boyle in a promotion from the author in exchange for a fair review.I'm happy to have found Cherie O'Boyle's work. I gave this book five stars. I enjoyed this cozy mystery about a body discovered after a fire in the Village of Arroyo Loco. The cast of characters can only be described as quirky. Some of them are iracsible & contentious as well. The only even natured residents seem to be Estela & [...]

    7. Fire at Will’s by Cherie O’Boyle is an Estela Nogales mystery. In Fire at Will’s we catch up with Etela as she is walking her two dogs – Shiner and Scout. While out on her late evening walk heading back home she hears the distinctive sound of the fire alarm going off down the canyon. The fire was spotted and called in by a neighbor who just so happened to be at home. Alarm spreads through some of the residents at the fear of the fire spreading and destroying their own homes; so they band [...]

    8. This mystery about an arson and possible homicide in a small canyon community off the Northern California coast unwinds at a leisurely pace. Residents seem not too community-minded as they resent and suspect one another of random acts of sabotage. The author shines when she describes the area and the lovingly-rendered doggies owned by the main character, a psychologist who is also the possessor of a very dry sense of humor.

    9. Fire at Will's is an intriguing mystery, featuring the new character Estela Nogales. Estela lives in the aptly named Arroyo Loco, whose HOA consists of a motley bunch of cranks, kooks, cat fanatics, crabby people--and evidently, a killer! Estela observes and participates in the affairs of her neighbors with a fair bit of eye rolling and snarky attitude. often accompanied by her border collies, Scout and Shiner (who have much more pleasant attitudes than most of the humans they encounter). When W [...]

    10. This is a delightful start to a charming cozy mystery series. It's a funny and insightful poke into community life and the quirky personalities of those who are part of it.

She is never far from her two border collies which are affectionate, playful and attentive to all sounds and interesting odors.Accompany Estela as she seeks out clues, uses her insight into human behavior and hopefully, sol [...]

    11. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this mystery with humor novel. I am not normally a mystery genre reader, but I have to say the two Border Collies on the front drew me in. And hey, who doesn't like a good fire? O'Boyle writes about an area in California with authority and has a great sense of humor about a not-so-funny topic. Psychologist Estela Nogales narrates the story and puts her two cents (or more) in about the personalities of all her neighbors who are possible suspects. As a suspect herself, [...]

    12. O'Boyle has a gift for describing the quirky characters of the small community of Arroyo Loco. The interactions of the community members and the self-deprecating humor of the protagonist make the investigation process both precarious and hilarious at times. Two border collies are always in the mix, sometimes to the surprise of their owner, the main character. Every reader will smile at the dogs' sometimes adorable, sometimes annoying, but always typical dog behaviors. You'll feel right at home i [...]

    13. Arson and murder in a small community makes for a fascinating read. Estela Nogales and her two border collies along with her quirky and often hostile neighbors try to solve the mystery while the sheriff's deputies are attending sensitivity training. It is entertaining, and a good read.

    14. This was my first book to read of the series. The characters are very interesting. They did not appeal to me. The main character does have two dogs and they are very important in her life. There's a fire and a dead body. This neighborhood is quite small in a canyon with one way in/out. It's like a 55+ Community with lots of rules and the neighbors are not very neighborly. They spy and talk about each other. They try to find out who started the fire and who killed Will. The ending of the book doe [...]

    15. The book is set in the small community of Arroyo Loco that has the world's craziest home owner's association. I got so sidetracked with their crazy rules (meetings where they all get to discuss their feelings? an actual HOA rule against rolling your eyes?) that I was distracted from the goings on in the community. The neighborhood felt so dysfunctional that I was a bit stressed, even though I don't live there. And while Estela Nogales was able to solve the murder and Ms. O'Boyle was able to brin [...]

    16. Very good book. I truly enjoyed itI am anxiously awaiting number 2 in this series. Many people cannot write good pet stories, but she seems to have captured the essence of the chore.

    17. I wanted to like this book a lot more than I did. But I liked it ok. Took forever to read it because I'd get easily distracted.
