Publisher's Summary

Melanie Travis thought her sleuthing days were behind her. She has a new baby to take care of - not to mention five Standard Poodles. These days, the closest Melanie gets to detective work is scoping out the scene at the local doggie day center for her friend Alice Brickman. As Melanie learns, it's a dog's life at the Pine Ridge Canine Care Center - and life is good. Everyone seems blissfully happy. Everyone canine, that is, as Melanie soon discovers there are some simmering resentments among the Pine Ridge staff. And when Steve Pine, the center's charming, good-looking co-owner, is found shot to death on the floor of his office, there's no shortage of suspects. With the police at a loss for leads, it's now up to Melanie to go undercover and sniff out a killer whose secrets lie buried in a dog's paradise that's proving to be anything but....

One of the Best in the Series

Always willing to please, Melanie investigates a doggy day care for her friend Alice. She gets into a lot of trouble, but she does get the job done. The mystery is well written and the characters are entertaining. Another good read in a good series.
