I have been reading these books out of order, but it s not really a problem, since each stands well enough on its own In this one, Melanie Travis aunt, Peg, who is a breeder of Standard Poodles and a force unto herself, holds a Fourth of July barbecue Because it is on the weekend of a major regional dog show, most of the whos who group is in attendance, with one noticeable exception An important but shady breeder and handler has been murdered Aunt Peg is determined to find out what happened, and turns to Melanie to help her At first there are a number of suspects, but when another murder happens, it gets even murkier as to what might be happening I like this series because the character of Melanie is pretty much a normal person, a single mom with a boyfriend, but the books focus on the characters and mysteries than being all about romance.This was the perfect read for a trip to the beach Another keeper Love Melanie Dog lovers will enjoy every moment of these One thing about these books so far is that Melanie Travis doesn t have to trip over policemen meddling in her sleuthing attempts They are rarely mentioned she blithely does her own thing and she s never a problem for them This is another lighthearted cozy mystery with plenty to learn about dog grooming, maintenance, showing, and breeding It s summertime and school is out so Melanie is available when Aunt Peg wants to put on a Fourth of July barbeque, because Aunt Peg hasn t had a chance to socialize since her husband s death Book 1 There is a trio of important dog shows converging in Connecticut for the weekend so it s a perfect opportunity One of the guests is Barry Turk, a Poodle handler with low professional standards and even less moral character, who is known for sexual harassing other female handlers He is shot at his home when he returns from the barbecue Suspects include Alicia Devane who had been living with Barry after she left her husband Bill for him She asks Melanie to find the person who did this to Barry It turns out she is pregnant but not necessarily with Barry s baby Bill Devane who is later murdered when Alicia moves back in with him after Barry s death Vivian and Ron Pullman who show Chows Barry was ecstatic over beating Ron s Chow, Leo, in the last dog show Ron has a secret of his own Austin Beamish whose Golden Retriever was supposed to win Best in Show over Barry s dog but didn t Obsessions seem to run his life Beth Wycowski Barry s assistant who s eager to learn dog handling and is ambitious to move up in the field Ralphie Otterbach, her mechanic boyfriend, has a hot temper and thinks Beth is wasting her time being a dog handler It s not a real job She also had a short affair with Barry Did Ralphie know this Aunt Peg has a new love interest in Douglas Brannigan who knows nothing about dog shows Aunt Peg can t seem to find the time to share any of his interests Will this relationship last Melanie s brother Frank also takes an interest in dog handler Bertie Kennedy when he takes Davey to a dog show for one of their play dates He asks her out for a date but also asks Sam Driver Melanie s boyfriend and Melanie to go along too Crawford Langley also has a new assistant named Terry Denunzio who is also a love interest Terry has some choice dialogue Davey, Melanie s five year old son, also is a lively and fun character This is a well written, well plotted, and somewhat convoluted story with some mystery mixed in with the dog show circuit Sometimes the repetition of the dog facts seem to make for slow reading but overall, it is a book worth reading But I almost waited too long to review this story as the plot, for me, is a forgettable one Hence, the detailed review so I will remember it.
