As owner of prize-winning Poodles, Melanie Travis knows
how to handle fierce competition. But when a conformation
show turns deadly, itâ€™ll take every trick in the book to
outsmart a murderer who refuses to lose . . .
With the excitement of the spring dog show season sweeping
Connecticut, Melanie is determined to help her son finally
lead his Standard Poodle toward a championship title. Aunt
Peg even skips the judging panel to exhibit a pup of her
own, and sheâ€™s set on standing out from the pack with a
handmade leash from Jasmine Crane, a talented canine
portrait artist who also crafts stunning accessories for
discriminating show-goers. Jasmineâ€™s handiwork is to die
forâ€”but Aunt Peg didnâ€™t expect to discover the woman
murdered behind the concession booth, strangled by one of
her dazzling custom creations . . .
Another shockwave ripples through the close-knit show
community when Amanda, Aunt Pegâ€™s longtime dog sitter and a
renter on Jasmineâ€™s property, ominously vanishes that same
day. While nosing around for clues, Melanie suspects a
dangerous connection between Amandaâ€™s disappearance and the
homicide caseâ€”a hunch that grows as her investigation
reveals sketchy secrets about the late artist. Juggling a
demanding teaching job, the pressures of the show ring, and
a daunting suspect list, Melanie finds herself entangled in
a mindboggling murder mystery . . . and hot on the trail of
a desperate killer . . .
