Book Read in Ireland: A Wonderful Dog-Lovers Mystery: Gone With the Woof (A Melanie Travis Mystery)

While on vacation, I (Rob) bought and enjoyed the paperback mystery called "Gone with the Woof" by Laurien Berenson. It's part of a series called the Melanie Travis Mysteries that involves a woman who has 5 standard poodles and works with show dogs, agility, etc. and has an aunt who does the same. The book was really enjoyable, especially to a dog dad like me who loves mysteries. The characters were all interesting and their personalities stood out. Secret relationships are uncovered throughout the book during Melanie's investigation, keeping you guessing. It's a great book and one I recommend!  - Rob

Despite a toddler and a house full of Standard Poodles, Melanie Travis can't pass up an opportunity to help legendary dog breeder Edward March pen his life story. But her enthusiasm flags when the breeder's angry son Andrew demands she stop working on the book. Why becomes imperative once Andrew is killed by a seemingly intentional hit-and-run and Melanie becomes Suspect #1. To get herself out of the dog house, Melanie sniffs out every possible clue, only to run into dead ends as fast as she's running out of time. And the longer the killer stays unleashed, the sooner she may end up in the dog house for good.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
