If you like dogs and cats come along with Dr. Kate Turner, DMV as she makes her rounds for Oak Fall Animal Hospital. You will meet her patients, dogs, cats, and a parrot. On one home visit, she finds all the dogs running loose in the house. This is an unusual occurrence and checking it out, Vivian and Thomas Langthornes are dead and their Champion King Charles Spaniel, Charles Too is missing. Dr. Kate knows, the Langthrones would not have let their dogs loose and would have left instructions for their care. The case is ruled murder/ suicide at first; later changed to suspicious. Kate attends a dog show to ask questions about the dogs. A friend of the Langthrones is shot in the ring. Kate helps to save the friend’s life. Kate knows the elderly couple was murdered and she has no proof. Kate must decide what she knows to the police or let it go as no one would believe her. The ending is a surprise.
This is the first book I have read by this author and I am looking forward to going along with Kate again.
