Overview

Welcome to an elite Connecticut kennel club where shocking secrets gnaw at the best of the breed and competition has a sharp—and deadly—bite.

As if raising her son Davey, training her rambunctious Poodle Faith for the show ring, and grooming fellow handler Sam Driver for romance aren't enough, Melanie Travis's entrée into the exclusive Belle Haven Kennel Club has been met with a grisly murder. Unfortunately, the only witnesses to the crime were the victim's startled pair of Beagles. And they aren't talking. . .

Melanie hadn't intended to do any serious snooping, what with coping with the unexpected arrival of an ex-husband out to get joint custody of the son he's never known. In need of some serious distraction, she's off to sniff out dangerous secrets. . .only to discover that everyone at Belle Haven has something damning to hide.

As the shocking truth slowly comes to light—and her own domestic drama moves center stage—Melanie finds herself eager to put the bite on a dogged killer who's desperate enough to strike again.

"A story as controlled as a well-behaved dog on a lead." —Publishers Weekly

I have read quite a few mysteries of this type. I must congratulate the author, because this doesn't fit into the usual boring mystery formula I have noticed in so many of them, yet without resorting to pulling the killer out of thin air, or, another disappointment, having the killer revealed only when s/he attacks the clueless protagonist.

Natalie Travis investigates another mysterious murder. Another excellent story in the series & well worth reading, wether your a dog lover or not. I highly recommend this book.

Poor puppies! ( I only put one star because I had to rate it. I wish I could give it none!)

This book flat-out sucks! Each character in here is no more than a stupid caricature. The plot is dull and far-fetched and you don't care what happens. A fourth grader could write a more interesting story than this. I DON'T RECOMMEND.
