“The Fast and the Furriest”

by Heather Weidner

Cassidy Green just wants to keep her racetrack business from crashing. When an altercation breaks out between two race teams at the driver meeting, it adds one more problem to her already full plate. Cassidy gets more than she bargains for when Oliver, her Rottweiler, finds one of the star drivers dead in her garage. She hopes her fuzzy director of security will help uncover clues to reveal the killer before the bad publicity drives business into the wall.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

This was a quick fast and entertaining read. I love the racetrack setting and that Rottweiler Oliver plays a key role.

I have enjoyed everything I have read by Ms. Weidner including her Delanie Fitzgerald Mysteries. She does both full length and short stories very well.


“Pawsitively Scandalous”

by Jayne Ormerod

Pilar Pruitt and her black Lab Natti live in a community that has not had so much of a whisper of a crime in over 60 years. So, it’s disconcerting when a neighbor is hauled off in handcuffs by the police for crimes unknown. But it’s downright alarming when another dear friend is found dead. Pilar and Natti start digging deeper into residents’ pasts, and the things they find are pawsitively scandalous!



“Ruff Goodbye”

by Rosemary Shomaker

Bar owner Len Hayes’ frenemy Perry Lambert brings misery to all. Len finds himself strong-armed into shady business dealing by Winks family human attack dog Rocco Moretti, compliments of Perry. Len’s grief over his best friend Curt’s cancer death imbalances him and everything unravels at Curt’s funeral home visitation. The bar’s stoic black Lab and Curt’s miniature poodle have Len’s back and resolve the mayhem.

Dollycas’s Thoughts 

This is my first time reading Ms. Shomaker’s work. She gives us a wonderfully detailed short story about how one man can really upset the applecart with his careless actions with a group. He pushes too far getting bar owner Len Hayes into something illegal. The final twist is so good and I love the parts dog’s play.

I look forward to reading more by this author.

by Teresa Inge
