The first book in the Dog Lovers series introduces you to Holly Winter and her new dog Rowdy. A light yet enjoyable mystery I learned new information about malamutes and lok forward to the next books in the series.
If you're a dog person and into professional training, you'll enjoy this insight into the inner workings. I could imagine each adorable creature with her descriptions.
This is the first in the long-running series about Holli Winter, the writer for dog magazines, and her dogs. Im running out of shelf space and decided that Id give away this series but I wanted to re-read at least one of them before they go, so I pulled this one out. This is a nice little whodunit; a man is strangled with his dogs leash at a training class. Holli has an engaging voice and her occupation gives her the perfect entry to ask questions amongst dog people. We discover how she got Rowdy, her first malamute; we meet the boyfriend Steve, the neighbor cop, and her friend upstairs. I dont read the current ones now as I felt the later ones in the series were beating me over the head with the authors views on dog ownership (btw, I tend to agree with a lot of it, but the lectures were just too much) but re-reading this one helped me remember why I did buy a bunch of them. If you like dogs and havent read Conan before, give her a try. Theres quite a lot of dog show info and terminology but it does seem appropriate to introduce this series.
