Wicked Flea: A Dog Lover's Mystery
The Wicked Flea finds dog walkers and joggers
battling for territory in the local park-and Holly Winter
caught up in a struggle with a poorly-trained canine and
some barely-civilized humans.
Breeding: A Dog Lover's Mystery (Dog Lover's Mystery)
Dog's Life columnist Holly Winter has just
landed a plum contract to write a book on Geraldine
Rockefeller Dodge's legendary pre-World War II dog shows.
Holly arranges to interview one of the last living
participants in those fabulously opulent and exclusive
shows: canine fancier B. Robert Motherway.
But there's something decidedly unsettling about the
gracious old gent's imposing home with its acres of
kennels. His dying wife wails piteously in an upstairs
room, his servants are his sullen son and his downtrodden
daughter-in-law, and his favorite German shepherd dog has
an ill-bred snarl. Meanwhile, Holly's mail is laced with
anonymous packages-old photographs, letters in German, and
a brochure on pills for listless pooches.
Nothing makes sense until a garroted body is found
in a nearby cemetery. Suddenly Holly and her Alaskan
malamutes, Rowdy and Kimi, are on a seventy-year-old trail
of deception, decadence, and death. And either they
unearth the skeletons or join them.

Speaking: A Dog Lover's Mystery
a mutt who hears for the hearing-impaired, tunes into
sounds no humans can hear when he and his owner move into
the home of a recently deceased dog-lover--and amateur
sleuth Holly Winter suspects murder.
Discomforts: A Dog Lover's Mystery
Dog's Life columnist Holly Winter regains consciousness
atop a cliff in Acadia National Park, she has no idea who
she is. Not even the arrival of two beautiful and oddly
friendly dogs, who happen to be her own Alaskan malamutes,
Rowdy and Kimi, is enough to jar her memory. Instinct
tells her that her fall was no accident and she'd best
keep her amnesia a secret. Yet when she follows the clues
back to the guest house of Gabrielle Beamon, a charming
woman surrounded by an eccentric band of preservationists,
all she finds is more questions. What was a dead man, who
reportedly hated exercise and the outdoors, doing hiking
in the first place? Why did Holly have a file filled with
information on arsenic? And why does the charismatic
founder of the Pine tree Foundation seem so hauntingly
familiar? As Holly gets closer to the truth, not even her
faithful dogs may be able to save her from a human who is
ruthless to the bone
