A perfect book in this series - set at the national specialty there is plenty of dog show and several twists and turns to the mystery that keep the book moving right along. Great fun read for any cozy reader and terrific for the dog loving mystery fan.

Poodle owner Melanie Travis is shanghaied into helping with the raffle sales at the poodle specialty show when one of her coworkers is killed. This writer is not restricted to those who like dogs, but rather will be enjoyed by most cozy readers.

If you're a fan of cozy mysteries, and love dogs this is a great book. Besides enjoying a great mystery, I learned a lot about the dog show circuit.

There are dog shows. And then there's The Poodle Club of America National Specialty Dog Show. For poodle purists, it's the pinnacle of the season, drawing competitors and spectators from all over the world. -- Once in Maryland, Melanie is put to work selling raffle tickets by the co-chairs of the raffle committee, Betty Jean and Edith Jean Boone. Sixty-ish steel magnolias from the South, the reclusive sisters make few appearances. But this year, they have a silver Toy puppy that has already caused quite a buzz on the show circuit.

While the poodles remain well behaved, it's their owners and handlers who start acting up. And when Betty Jean is found dead at the host hotel, murder takes center stage. But this is the PCA - and the show must go on. As Edith Jean staunchly resumes her duties, Melanie starts searching for clues, and comes up with a compelling cast of suspects whose actions prove that in the dog-eat-dog world of showing, a life can be as easily lost as a blue ribbon. And that unlike cats, dogs-and their owners-have only one to risk....

The plot is good and characters seem to be well developed. The downside is that I felt there was just to much info about poodles.
