Can a murder investigation keep these opposites from attracting?
Cara Rogers wants a fresh start after a slew of bad luck in Washington DC. Moving to Virginia
to help her aunt run La Maison de Chien, a doggie spa, is just the peace of mind she needs. No
stress. Just her aunt, the dogs, and wide-open country.
But when she finds Aunt Marian floating in the doggie swimming pool, the rest she so
desperately needs flies out the window. The only witness to the death is Rex, an apricot
maltipoo, and while he may not be able to talk, he’s communicating the only way he knows
how—one paw at a time. And Rex’s clues lead to murder.
Can Cara keep the doggie spa afloat, convince Middleburg homicide detective Cole Sampson
that Aunt Marian’s death was no accident, and keep Rex from the killer’s clutches before they all
end up as dead as dogs?
