In posh Laguna Beach, murder has gone to the dogs.

When Caro Lamont, former psychologist turned pet therapist, makes a house call to help Kevin Blackstone with his two misbehaving German shepherds, she expects frantic dogs; she expects a frantic dog owner; she even expects frantic neighbors. What she doesn't expect is that two hours later the police will find Kevin dead, his dogs impounded; and that as the last person to see Kevin alive (well, except for the killer) she is suddenly a person of interest, at least according to Homicide Detective Judd Malone.

Detective Judd Malone scanned my living room, his baby blues taking in my overstuffed couch, easy chairs and crowded bookshelves. My cats, Thelma and Louise, perched in the window sill, replete with tuna. Each opened an eye and then, unimpressed, went back to their beauty sleep. Dogbert climbed from his doggie bed, trotted over for a sniff, but then also dismissed Malone and went back to his nap.

Yes, I did. I'm the behavioral counselor for his German shepherds. What about Kevin? I had a really bad feeling about this.

    " A very enjoyable book. I liked the main character, Caro, as she seems to put herself in the wrong place at the right times. Its a series that I will have to follow up with. Caro has a lot to do yet, especially with her love life and her dog business. "
