Mystery Woman Sleuth | Mystery Pet Lovers
Summer means two things to Melanie Travis: a break from
her teaching duties at Connecticutâ€™s elite Howard Academy
and a chance to plan the perfect wedding to her fiancĂ©,
Sam. She certainly doesnâ€™t need the unwelcome arrival of a
dinner invitation â€śpeace offeringâ€ť from Samâ€™s ex-wife,
Sheila Vaughn. And dinner proves to be only the beginning
of her problems. Sheilaâ€™s new man turns out to be Brian
Endicott, an old buddy-turned-enemy of Samâ€™s. To make
matters worse, Sheila announces her temporary stay in town
is now permanent: sheâ€™s accepted a job as co-publisher of
Woof!, a new gossip rag for the dog show world. But before
the first issue is even out, a hotter story breaks when
Sheila is found dead, strangled with a leather dog leash.
As far as Melanieâ€™s concerned, the woman should have been
on a leash long ago. And it seems she isnâ€™t alone in her
dislike of Sheila. Some of Woof!â€™s salacious stories
threatened to expose the dirty paws of quite a few
important exhibitors, and someone on Sheilaâ€™s staff may
have found her high-handed attitude worth silencing. Then
thereâ€™s the question of the life insurance policy Brian
took out only days before Sheilaâ€™s death.
Even more troubling to Melanie is her faltering
relationship with Sam, whoâ€™s hiding secretsâ€”secrets that
put him more deeply under Sheilaâ€™s spell in death than in
life. Now, it will take the instincts of a bloodhound to
sniff out a killer whoâ€™s bent on putting an end to
Melanieâ€™s amateur sleuthing...
