Publisher Description

Elise Butler is a wildlife biologist who enjoys her stable (if somewhat predictable) job in finance at the World Wildlife Trust. However, when the veterinarian at Riverbend Animal Conservation Center goes missing, Elise offers to help the unlucky wildlife Conservation Center get back on its feet. Not only will the job in Riverbend, Indiana let her get back to her roots of working with animals, but it’s also a short drive from her sister’s workplace at Riverbend K-9 Academy, a training center for some of the FBI’s best explosive detection dogs.

FBI Special Agent Finn Cooper and his canine partner, Sedona, are chasing a well-funded animal trafficking ring. After an injury sidelines Finn from official FBI undercover work, he goes to work at Riverbend K-9 Academy to stay busy while he recovers…and to investigate his only remaining lead in the animal trafficking case.

Just as Elise begins to settle into life in Riverbend, her sister asks her to help the K-9 Academy by fostering one of their puppies. Finn is eager to keep Elise focused on training Zeke, the enthusiastic German shepherd puppy earmarked to become Riverbend’s first wildlife detection K-9, and keep her well away from his quiet animal trafficking investigation. Zeke quickly proves himself an expert both at chewing shoes and sniffing out clouded leopards. When Zeke starts finding scents where they don’t belong, Elise and Finn begin to realize that the Conservation Center may be more criminal than unlucky. And if Elise doesn’t keep her nose out of it, she might be the next target.

Great overall book

The first thing to mention is that there’s isn’t a lot of cozy mystery hero’s who works in animal zoology. I was truly happy to have read this book, especially since I was able to read the first book of a new series which features a materials engineer.
The second thing would be that Elise is a relatable, clever and overall lovely character. I was fascinated by her competence and her fortitude as she was expertly clever.
Thirdly, would be writer’s background grows this book to an even more interesting level. I can appreciated the details and that make it sophisticated but not overly much so. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series, I can’t wait to have it loaded in my kindle. I recommend this to everyone! Dog lovers, cozy readers, zoo lover reader, even budding romance readers???.
