A Hayden & Friends Mystery
Crooked Lane Books — Feb 2022

“Take a disarming protagonist, a delightful supporting cast, and a pacy romp of a plot, add boundless warmth, humor, baked goods, and puppy love and you’ve got DEVIL’S CHEW TOY. Rob Osler’s debut cozy — or “Quozy” — brings a rainbow of characters into the cozy universe with a lot of snap and even more style. I loved it!”
Catriona McPherson, multi-award-winning author of the Last Ditch Motel mysteries  
“This nail-biter of a book is gut-bustingly funny, endlessly entertaining, and little bit scary. Hayden McCall — teacher by day, relationship blogger by night, crime-solver by circumstance — is unlike any mystery protagonist you’ve ever met: pocket-sized, optimistic and — even though Hayden hates being described that way — adorable. This is one of those books that makes you wonder if the world isn’t just a bit more edgy, fun, dangerous, eccentric and exciting that you thought.”
— Hart Hanson, author of The Driver
“An out and proud crime story loaded with charm, warmth and good humor, DEVIL’S CHEW TOY introduces an engaging new voice with a fresh perspective on the sorts of stories a 21st century mystery novel can tell.”
— Charles Ardai, award-winning author of Nice Guys
