When Seattle yoga teacher Kate Davidson agrees to teach doga (yoga for dogs) at a fundraiser for a local animal rescue, she believes the only damage will be to her reputation. But a few downward-facing dogs are the least of Kate’s problems when an animal rights protest at the event leads to a suspicious fire and a drowning.

The police arrest a woman claiming to be Kate’s estranged mother and charge her with murder. To prove her innocence, Kate, boyfriend Michael, and German shepherd sidekick Bella dive deeply into the worlds of animal activism, organizational politics, and the dangerous obsessions that drive them. All while discovering that when it comes to murder, there’s no place like hOMe.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

This is my favorite book in this series so far and I absolutely love the cover.

Yoga for dogs! Yes, I have heard of it, but those have to be some well behaved dogs if the experience is going to be tranquil for the dogs and their owners. Kate’s class has a great turnout but things quickly turn to chaos when another type of animal and their person decides to take part in the class.  Add to that a group of protesters set on disruption and shortly thereafter a dead body and you have a great start for a mystery.

Kate has really grown since the first book. When her mother comes to town with a group of animal activists Kate isn’t very receptive to the woman that abandoned her when she was just a toddler but when her mother is accused of murder she can’t help but get involved. With the help of her boyfriend, Micheal, her fabulous dog Bella, a lawyer that raises goats,  and a very pregnant best friend, she sets out to clear her mother’s name and find out why her mother left her. With several calming breaths Kate handles these stressful events and many more before we reach the final page. Readers and Kate learn so much about her past in this installment. Kate’s reactions were perfect and so real. She went through all the emotions you would expect for anyone in her situation.

With a big dose of humor Tracy Weber takes us on quite an adventure. The drama of the fire at the fundraiser, the return of Kate’s mom, the body discovery and all the aftermath are joined Kate’s daily life. Things like dealing with a pesky pigeon, learning about the rehabilitation of a very friendly crow, activists attacks,  a little political corruption, a home renovation, and other people’s relatives behaving badly. Kate’s life is definitely not dull by any means.

This series is going in a fantastic direction. Animal lovers, you must read this story!!

perfect 2016
