Overview

Did pawing at too many women get a dog handler shot dead? A twist-filled mystery that “will charm dog fanciers and cozy fans.”—Publishers Weekly
 
The dog days of summer have just begun, and Melanie Travis is looking forward to savoring them. And where better to enjoy herself than at her Aunt Peg’s Fourth of July barbecue? It sounds ideal, until an uninvited guest proves that even the laziest dog day of the year can suddenly turn vicious.

Melanie knew someone should have kept Barry Turk on a short leash. The star poodle handler and ladykiller had a habit of chicanery that bred contempt in the dog show circuit, particularly among its female members. But when Barry is shot dead in his own driveway, even Melanie is stunned at how unsporting the competition can get. Soon Melanie is investigating a litter of suspects, which includes Barry’s ruthless young assistant, her hot-tempered boyfriend, a Blue Ribbon judge with a grudge, and even Barry’s last lover, Alicia. Now, as Melanie digs for clues deep under Connecticut’s well-groomed surface, she finds herself sniffing around in the killer’s own backyard, and counts herself lucky to have the animal instincts to keep herself alive.
 
“A good choice for dog aficionados.”—Library Journal
