A fast and intriguing dog mystery with Allie Babcock, a dog therapist. She has moved temporarily back home. Allie is asked to decide which party in a messy divorce case should receive custody of Shogun, a silky terrier. With her Mother’s permission Allie has agreed to foster a husky with her puppies for 3 weeks. The story takes a violent turn when she finds the body of one of her neighbors dead at the home of one of Shogun’s owners. There are enough turns as the story keeps changing direction. Despite the factor I feel the main characters are shallow and the book could use editing, it doesn’t take from the book. I don’t always agree with her to why an animal does something. Dog owners can definitely learn from the book. I highly recommend this series, especially to animal lovers.
