Description
Melanie Travis is back - after her first run through the competitive dog show world in A Pedigree to Die For. Now, the Connecticut teacher and single mother returns to elite canine circles, this time as the owner and handler of her own pedigreed poodle and uncovers a killer lurking among the dogged handlers and their prize-winning pets.It's not easy being the underdog, but what Melanie and her five-month-old pup lack in experience, they make up in enthusiasm. Melanie signs up for a breed-handling class at Connecticut's classiest obedience school... only to have her education cut short by sudden death. Melanie - with her unerring nose for detection - smells a murder.With her rambunctious puppy, five-year-old son, and Sam Driver - the man giving her both hot fantasies and cold feet - in tow, Melanie hits the championship circuit. In this dog-eat-dog world where winning is everything, she discovers that more than one suspect had a bone to pick with the victim, including: an unctuous rival handler, an adoring but possessive husband, an envious younger sister, and a kennel owner whose secret recipe for dog biscuits isn't the only thing she's guarding.

display_descriptionWelcome 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 "Don't make me sit up and beg. Read this book today." --Dorothy Cannell.
