Death Of A Dog Whisperer
Between her boisterous sons and a house full of Poodles, there's never a dull moment for Melanie Travis. But no matter how hectic life gets, she can always pick up the scent of a howling good mystery--and she'll stop at nothing to dig up the truth. . .
It's summer in Connecticut, and Melanie's life has become an endless string of dog shows, soccer camp, and the antics of her energetic toddler. She hardly has time to pay much attention to her Aunt Peg's new protege, Nick Walden, a self-proclaimed "dog whisperer" with an uncanny gift for decoding dog-speak. The well-heeled dog owners of Fairfield County are lapping up his alleged talents, anxious to discover exactly what their pampered pets are thinking--that is until the pooches start spilling their secrets.
When Nick is discovered dead in his home, his sister Claire enlists Melanie to help track down the killer. Now, as she juggles the demands of marriage and motherhood--not to mention her six beloved Poodles--Melanie can scarcely even begin to nose through the growing list of suspects. But just when she thinks she's barking up the wrong tree, she'll find herself face to face with a purebred murderer. . .
Kill The Dog
The not so great Great Recession. Christmas. An out of work father. And an injured, aging family pet requiring costly ACL surgery. Ron Stempler fully intended to have their nine year old Labrador medically fixed up until everyone suggested an unthinkable alternative. Everyone except his wife and his daughter Darlene who claimed to have an unbreakable ESP connection with her beloved black lab. While trying to decide what to do with the animal they consider a "family member", it is Ron himself - disenfranchised, self doubting, but loving father - whose hard choices allow him to rediscover his valued place as a "family member".
Catered Fourth Of July, A
High noon on July Fourth in the quiet town of Longley, New York, and it's got to be one hundred degrees. Thankfully, sisters Bernie and Libby are setting up their yummy catering out of the sun in the gazebo for the reenactment of The Battle of Meadow Creek-and not baking in those Revolutionary War uniforms with their fellow townspeople
After a few cheery exchanges of "Moveth" and "Thou speakest treason," the muskets are fired and the fake battle is over. But the blood on notorious town playboy Jack Devlin looks very real. Is it possible that Jack has had his last tryst?
When town councilman and resident loudmouth Rick Evans fingers Libby's beau, Marvin, as the killer, Bernie and Libby know they've got to get cooking on the case. But the former Casanova has burned half the town-including the hot-headed politician and his occasionally faithful wife. And what about re-enactor Elise Montague, who is training to be an EMT yet almost fainted at the sight of blood on the deceased?
Bernie and Libby have their plates overloaded with suspects, and will need to work very fast to clear Marvin's name. The simmering killer is still out there, armed and taking shots, and unless the sisters quickly get to the bottom of this patriotic pre-meditationtheir goose may be cooked!
