Publisher's Summary

Mike, the sheriff of Beaver County, Oregon and his wife Kelly, the owner of Kelly's Koffee Shop, have just returned from a fly fishing trip to Cuba. On the drive home from the airport Mike gets a call informing him that the owner of Doggie Love Kennel, where they had boarded their dogs when they were in Cuba, has been murdered. To make matters worse, all of the dogs in the kennel, including Rebel and Lady, have been released and are running loose in the surrounding area. They immediately begin to search for their dogs as well as trying to determine who killed Mary Barnes.

They have plenty of suspects to choose from: the druggie kennel employee; the owner of the award winning Yorkie that was impregnated while staying at the kennel; the disgruntled head of the Pit Bull Sanctuary who was instructed by the owner of the kennel to get his pit bulls off of the property within 24 hours; the impoverished woman whose property is next to the luxurious kennel and is jealous of the dogs being boarded there; the kennel manager; and her husband who has anger issues. Will Mike and Kelly find the killer before the killer comes after them? And what about the dog named Skyy? Is she cute enough to make Mike rethink his decision to only have two dogs? Can she worm her way into his heart?

This is the ninth book in the best-selling Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series. Find out more at DianneHarman.com

Not exceptional

animals, pets, murder, law-enforcement, cozy-mystery

The publisher's blurb is somewhat informative but rather misleading. There seems to be an abundance of suspects and red herrings, but it moves a bit slowly for my taste.
Erin deWard does a respectable job as narrator.

A Dog lovers delight

This Audio Book will especially entertain Dog lovers which although short has a good plot with a great variety of characters.

The Narrator makes this Book come alive and makes it a much better story.

Doggies, Doggies, Everywhere!

Who doesn't love a good murder mystery and TONS of dogs? I do!
I thought this was a delightful story, lots of interesting characters and I loved it from beginning to end.

Cute story about the owner of a dog kennel who is murdered, and all the dogs are loose! The owners of two of the dogs at the kennel at the time, Mike and Kelly, are on a quest to find their beloved dogs and find out who could have possibly murdered this lady? A lot of suspects, but you'll need to listen to find out what happens!

Great taily tale, very much enjoyed it :)

The Town Is Going To The Dogs!

A gentle cozy mystery, murder notwithstanding, with a lot of lovable dogs and some clever sleuthing. Nicely narrated by Erin Ward, whose vocalizations capture the closeness, mutual regard, and deep caring between the main characters. Author Dianne Harman has a real feel for small town interactions and politics, and a number of issues relevant to everyday lives are focused on including education and various addictions.

Great Story, Great Narration!

I really enjoy cozy mysteries that deal with pets. I found this book pulled me in immediately with the characters and the premise of the book. I had my suspicions on who the killer was, and was pleasantly surprised. I love it when its not obvious. The narrator, Erin deWard did great with this book. She fit the characters and added the right emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. This book is a standalone listen. I would definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Cozy Mystery

This is the 9th book in the Cedar Bay Cozy Mystery Series but it stands alone. A beloved retired school teacher is murdered. Her 30 dogs are sent to the financially struggling, filled to capacity animal shelter. Who would want to kill her and what was she doing with all those dogs! Mike is the sheriff but his wife Kelly, who owns the coffee house, wants to solve the case. The story was entertaining and the characters interesting. I enjoyed solving the case along with Mike and Kelly! I would like to listen to the whole series now!

Pound Puppies

Trouble at the Animal Shelter
: Dianne Harman

I was so glad to get to listen to the next book in The Cedar Bay series. Kelly and Mike have returned with their fellow townspeople along with a few new characters. The animal shelter is barley staying in business and soon things go crazy with a death in town. A nice cozy that gives the listener a list of suspects and Kelly goes on a mission to help Mike solve the crime. The book is quick, clean and simple; something I needed after some other subjects I've read or listened to recently.



The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed by Erin deWard.

An entertaining, clean small town murder mystery

Trouble at the Animal Shelter is a good, clean small town murder mystery with dogs. The story is entertaining and pleasant to read or listen to. The narrator of the audiobook fits the story perfectly and does a nice job.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook at my request. This is my honest and voluntary review.
