Publisher's Summary

Book 14 in the award-winning Raine Stockton Dog Mystery series.

Raine Stockton knows dogs, not kids. Nonetheless, she is supremely confident in her ability to take care her fiancé’s 10-year-old daughter Melanie for a week while he is out of town. After all, how hard could it be?

But things get complicated when Raine and her golden retriever Cisco rescue a dog who is locked in a hot car in a remote Smoky Mountain park and subsequently discover the owner of that car drowned in the creek only a few dozen yards away. Was it an accident, or was it murder?

Raine is certain that she recognizes the abandoned dog from her puppy training class, six years ago. Mere months later, the dog, along with his three-year-old owner, disappeared from the child’s bedroom during the night and were never seen again. Now, the dog is back, and Raine is convinced his reappearance might hold the key to the truth about the missing child. The problem is that no one believes her.

While Raine tries to unravel the mystery of the abandoned dog’s past - and a six-year-old missing child case - her ex-husband - criminal investigator Buck Lawson - opens an investigation into the death of the man in whose car the dog was found. He, soon, finds himself involved in another cold case - one that leads him from an apparent serial killer in Florida to a murder in his own hometown.

The one thing that ties the two cases together is the dog, whose shadowy history opens the door to questions better left unasked and whose answers may prove to be deadly. 

But when lives are in danger, it is up to Raine and Cisco to track down the truth, even though it means risking someone she loves.

The Perfect Canine Mystery

I have so enjoyed this series—read all 15 books in about two months. My type of mysteries—not scary, great story lines with twists and turns, dogs as an integral part of every book, and some romance sprinkled in for good measure. I laughed and cried in these books. I enjoyed getting to know the characters, real and flawed and wonderful. I will miss them. The narrator does an amazing job bringing the characters to life. I am a little sad to to be done with the series for now, and hope the next installment will come out soon.

Bravo!

While I am surely hoping there are more of the K9 Series to come, Murder Creek was especially the one for which I say, Bravo.

A friend introduced me to canine mysteries and before that had not participated in listening to books on tape. Admittedly, at the beginning, I did not care for the narrator’s voice, but I grew to appreciated her ability to play the different characters. She is quite talented.

About the series ... I went from book to book, eager to hear the next adventure. I even went beyond my Audible credits and purchased the books, because I couldn’t wait.

To the author, please keep them coming! To readers, keep reading. You won’t be disappointed!
