Can a murder investigation keep these opposites from attracting?Cara Rogers wants a fresh start after a slew of bad luck in Washington DC. Moving to Virginia
to help her aunt run La Maison de Chien, a doggie spa, is just the peace of mind she needs. No
stress. Just her aunt, the dogs, and wide-open country.

But when she finds Aunt Marian floating in the doggie swimming pool, the rest she so
desperately needs flies out the window. The only witness to the death is Rex, an apricot
maltipoo, and while he may not be able to talk, he’s communicating the only way he knows
how—one paw at a time. And Rex’s clues lead to murder.

Can Cara keep the doggie spa afloat, convince Middleburg homicide detective Cole Sampson
that Aunt Marian’s death was no accident, and keep Rex from the killer’s clutches before they all
end up as dead as dogs?
Cara Rogers arrived for her first day on the job at her Aunt Marion’s doggie day spa.  She was expecting introductions and training, never in her wildest dream would she think she would have walked in to se her Aunt murdered.
She was shocked by her Aunt’s death and even more surprised at her instant attraction to the hot police detective Cole.  He seems to notice her right away too.  The pair could not deny the instant attraction, but Cara may was also a possible suspect.
This was a really cute cozy mystery.  The details of the doggie day care made it easy to picture the rooms these pampered pets stay in.  I especially loved the recipes in the back of the book.  They are treats for dogs that are mentioned in the book.  The book kept me guessing the entire read.  I was happy with the way the book ended, but the author did leave room for a book or two more.  I do hope we hear more from these characters.
