Going to the Dogs

Detective Sam Kendall wants to avenge his partner's death. To help him with the task, his boss gives him a standard white poodle with a voracious junk food appetite. He goes undercover and takes a job working for Jodie McBride, a dog trainer and also his prime suspect. At first he thinks the woman is nuts, but over time he comes to respect her touch with the pooches and her customers. If she'd only stop taking about jewels in hushed telephone conversations, he'd swear she was innocent.

Both the poodle and Jodie get under Sam's skin as the investigation heats up. The show down takes place at a dog show. Will his girl get caught, will the jewels be found, and will his crazy poodle be of any help? These questions and more are answered in Going to the Dogs.

As far as a romance goes, Going to the Dogs was as cute as they come. Sam, Jodie, and their pack of kooky canine are sure to please. I thoroughly enjoyed the dog training, dog show, and doggy quirk aspects of this book.

Regarding the mystery, it started off strong, but the tension and danger were low. Not an edge of your seat page-turner, but certainly a fun read.
