After a short break from crime solving, stay-at-home mom Melanie Travis has not become boring no matter what her alarmingly opinionated Aunt Peg says. She still has a nose for sniffing up a good mystery, especially when it involves the life of a legendary dog breeder

Despite Melanie's domestic demands a toddler and a house full of Standard Poodles helping Edward March pen his life story is an opportunity she can't pass up. Of course Edward turns out to be a growly old man who wants his book "Puppy Love" to consist mainly of his amorous encounters with women from the dog show community. It's juicy gossip, but not dangerous until Andrew, Edward's son, pays Melanie an angry visit to stop her from working on the book.

When Andrew suddenly turns up very dead, the victim of a seemingly intentional hit-and-run, the police are looking at Edward as Suspect #1. There was lots of bad blood between Andrew and his father, but Melanie is looking at the bigger picture. Would some of Edwards' ex-trysts have gone after Andrew to shut Edward up? How about all of those husbands and boyfriends with bones to pick? And who is that woman who everyone is avoiding at the funeral?

Between getting caught up in the bafflingly dysfunctional March family, sorting out two generations of disgruntled ex lovers, and uncovering a shocking case of secret hoarding, Melanie's running into dead ends almost as fast as she's running out of time. The longer the killer stays unleashed, the sooner she may end up in the dog house for good.

Review: Gone with the Woof (Melanie Travis #16)

User Review  - Mary - Goodreads

This is the 16th book in the Melanie Travis Mysteries. The last book was published in 2008 so it was great to reunite with Melanie, Sam, Aunt Peg, Davey and the Standard Poodles. I loved every book in this series. Thank you Laurien Berenson for writing number 16. I look forward to the next book. Read full review
