About the Author:

Laurien Berenson is author of the delightful Melanie Travis canine cozy mystery series, including Jingle Bell Bark and Best in Show. She has a degree in psychology from Vassar College and has been married for almost twenty-five years. She lives in Georgia with her husband, her son, six dogs, and two Welsh ponies.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A third time on the Westchester/Connecticut dog-show circuit with Melanie Travis (Dog Eat Dog, 1996, etc.), divorced teacher, mother of five-year-old Davey, and lover of rugged computer designer Sam Driver. A little-liked trainer-handler, Barry Turk, has been shot and killed in the driveway of the house he shared with Alicia Devane, who had left her show-judge husband Bill for Turk. Pregnant, distraught, and under police suspicion, Alicia now asks Melanie to help her find the killer. A sympathetic Melanie starts asking questions, encouraged as usual by her bossy Aunt Peg, a breeder of Standard Poodles. Melanie's interest focuses on Viv and Ron Pullman--the two abruptly shifted their prize Chow from Turk's management to handler Crawford Langley and have been bad-mouthed by Turk ever since--and she also digs up several victims of Turk's sexual harassment, plus a spate of illicit affairs in unexpected places. It's going nowhere--slowly- -until a second killing and a magazine gossip item lead Melanie (the police have vanished) to an off-the-wall solution. Only for those obsessed with show dogs (their grooming, hair problems, and ingratiating personalities). All else here is absurdly contrived and unconvincing. -- Copyright ©1997, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
