To Kill a Labrador
Marcia (pronounced Mar-see-a, not Marsha) likes to think of herself as a normal person, even though she has a rather abnormal vocation. She trains service dogs for combat veterans with PTSD. Then the former Marine owner of her first trainee is accused of murdering his wife, and Marcia gets sucked into an even more abnormal avocation–amateur sleuth.
Called in to dog-sit the Labrador service dog, Buddy, she's outraged that his veteran owner is being presumed guilty until proven innocent. With Buddy's help, she tries to uncover the real killer. Even after the hunky local sheriff politely tells her to butt out, Marcia keeps poking around. Until the killer finally pokes back.
A great read
I loved this book and was delighted to discover it was the first in a series. A feisty heroine, hunky hero, great storyline and, the cherry on the cake for me, gorgeous dogs. I enjoyed this so much I came straight back to buy Lacy's story.
My thanks to the author for a really enjoyable read.
Eye catching cover, then I read the title!!!!!!
Not to worry, this is a murder mystery and the labrador is a character in the plot, he's well protected and completely unharmed.
Marcia, who trains service dogs, is determined to discover the murderer of her client's wife and subsequently finds herself in danger with her snooping.
The local sheriff wants her to keep out of his case but is this only to stop her inquiries or for some other reason?
In the process of her investigation, Marcia continues to annoy the sheriff and a bad tempered alligator threatens her - still no animals harmed.
An enjoyable and well written murder mystery with 'will they, won't they' from Marcia and the sheriff to fill the romantic element.
