Publisher's Summary

A killer wants Lilly Echosby to roll over and play dead....

Lilly may be losing a husband, but she's gaining a toy poodle. That could be seen as a win-win, since her new adopted pooch, Aggie (named after Agatha Christie), is cute and adorable and Lilly's dirty dog of a spouse is cheating on her with a blonde bimbo - except for one problem: Albert Echosby's just been murdered, and Lilly is the number-one suspect.  

With the cops barking up the wrong tree, it's a good thing her best friend, Scarlett "Dixie" Jefferson, from Chattanooga, Tennessee, decided to take a break from the dog club circuit to pay a visit along with her own prize pair of poodles. 

With help from Dixie, her defense attorney daughter, and a blue-eyed man in blue with a K-9 partner, Lilly is determined to collar the real killer. But when a second murder occurs, it's clear they're dealing with one sick puppy....

In the dog house will win your heart

I love all the characters. I could relate to Lilly, her age, her bond with Aggie. Please please please write more in this series. I haven’t been this excited about a new series in well I can’t remember!

Loved it.

I have been trying to find a new series to listen to and have gone through the listing several times not finding anything that I could thoroughly enjoy. I saw that Beatrice liked this book so I thought that I would give it a try. It was exactly what I was looking for. I am glad that the dogs are just dogs in this story and not involved in solving the mystery. Madison Vaughn was perfect as Lili Echosby and she also did well with the other voices. I suspected who the murderer was when the character was first introduced but I thoroughly enjoyed listening to how the story unfolded that it didn’t bother me at all. I will definitely get the next book.

A Pretty Fair and Standard Cozy

Everything about the story is pretty standard and likeable. Nothing too much to write home about and I'll be honest outside of the MC and her BFF having dogs, I don't see why the author seemed to play up the dog show angle in the title. Not a bad book but very paint by numbers and something light that u can use to kill a few hours with.
