The Gumshoe Chicks Mysteries 1: Gone to the Dogs
Abigail Truelove believes her champion standard smooth dachshund¸ Chloe¸ has a lock on the Ladies Kennel Club Best in Show trophy. That is¸ until she discovers her nemesis¸ Petra Sullivan¸ has been sleeping with the show judge- and with Abi's boyfriend. Understandably¸ Abi's upset. Might even have threatened blood-thirsty consequences. In front of a show ring full of witnesses… So¸ later¸ when Abi trips over Petra's dead body in a dark alley¸ she knows she must find Petra's killer-the only clue-an expensive designer dog leash knotted murderously around Petra's neck. Or she could end up showing her wiener dog¸ in prison. To help catch the killer¸ Abi and her two best friends¸ Molly¸ a virgin romance-writer and Dana¸ a ball-busting mother of two¸ revive their High-school sleuthing group¸ The Gumshoe Chicks. But when the list of suspects becomes longer than a week's grocery list¸ the Chicks quickly discover that sleuthing isn't as easy as the Nancy Drew books portray. The local dog show world is full of angry wives¸ irate competitors and a Mick Dundee type guy with a yard full of man-eating crocodiles-all cheated¸ tricked or dumped by Petra. But which one would stupidly waste their big-ticket luxury dog leash for a murder weapon? The same one who is now determined to collar Abi? Available in EPUB and PDF formats.
