"If you like dogs, you'll love Laurien Berenson's Melanie Travis mysteries!" --Joanne Fluke, New York Times bestselling author 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 prot#65533;g#65533;, 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. . . Praise For Laurien Berenson And Her Melanie Travis Mysteries! "Laurien Berenson just keeps getting better and better." --Harlan Coben "Berenson throws dog lovers a treat they will relish." -- Publishers Weekly "A wonderful reason to celebrate--Melanie Travis is back on the job in this always charming and clever series." --Earlene Fowler, author of The Road to Cardinal Valley and the Benni Harper mysteries "A special treat." -- Library Journal "Delightful. . .Four paws for this one." --Carolyn Hart "Fun reading." -- Dog News PRAISE FOR GONE WITH THE WOOF "A sprightly pooch-packed escapade. With unexpected twists, humor, and a wealth of information about the story's milieu, Berenson wraps up this caper in a tail-wagging finale." -- Publishers Weekly "Berenson, who has a nose for balancing fun and fright, devises another story that will appeal to dog aficionados and cozy lovers alike." -- Kirkus "Berenson's canine frame story will have dog lovers' tails wagging, and it doesn't detract from either the savvy heroine or the smart mystery." -- Booklist "A wonderful novel. Even better if you read it with a dog on your lap." -- Suspense Magazine
