Paws of Death (A Canine Confections Mystery)
by Amy Hueston
I am thrilled to welcome Amy Hueston to Escape With Dollycas today!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hi there. I’m Amy Hueston. I just released the 3rd in my Canine Confections series and I also just released the first in a puzzle series that accompanies the Canine Confections books. This first puzzle book has mazes, wordsearches and crossword puzzles and has subjects related to Paws for Concern, book 1 in the series. I really like to read and solve puzzles and mysteries, and thought others might too.
What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book? I visit Palm Beach for this series and I don’t have a set amount of time. There are so many fun things to do there, it’s hard to decipher what counts as “research.” 😊
Do you ever suffer from Writer’s Block? Yup. Whenever I think too much and don’t let the creative juices just FLOW…
What advice do you have for someone who would like to become a published writer? It’s harder than it appears. It’s also a lot of fun.
When you are not writing what do you like to do? I’m a singer and I get hired for that a lot, and I like it, so that counts, right? I also like to spend as much time with my dogs as possible. They totally deserve it, dogs get bored if they just sit around all day, plus it makes me happy!
How has the COVID pandemic affected you and you’re writing? It hasn’t really.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go and why? I’d like to go to the hotel where Stephen King stayed when he wrote The Shining. I love spooky fun.
What is next on the horizon for you? Ummmm….petting my dogs? And maybe a 4th installment of the Canine Confections series and a psychological thriller. Singing. Meeting new people and dogs. Traveling. Reading. Writing more stories for Woman’s World magazine. So many things, hard to finish the list now that I’ve started.
Thanks so much for having me here. I certainly appreciate it. Amy
You are so welcome!
Keep reading to find out about Amy’s new book.

Two murders on the same strip of Worth Avenue in Palm Beach means dog bakery owner Samantha Armstrong and her fellow shopkeepers have reached their quota of bad stuff. Right?
They should be so lucky…
Samantha is thrilled that life in her new hometown has finally settled into a fun, peaceful rhythm. Canine Confections’ business is on the upswing, and her days are filled with jogs on the beach with her pooch Sweet Pea, cozy time with Aunt Mary on her aunt’s estate, and yummy treats at her upscale dog bakery. But things are not peaceful for long when Donna from the local gossip magazine, Pulse on Palm Beach, winds up dead at Samantha’s first foray into catering a millionaire dog’s birthday party.
Once again, Samantha finds herself smack dab in the middle of the investigation. But this time, it’s another reporter from Pulse that’s making her center-stage. With the aid of her precious Sweet Pea, Samantha pads around the splashy Worth Avenue sniffing out clues. Unfortunately, the more she searches, the more suspects she finds. And it doesn’t help that Angelina from Mystic Dreams has hired a psychic who warns that trouble in Palm Beach isn’t about to end anytime soon.
Includes an original recipe from the world-famous Three Dog Bakery!
Like a bad penny that never fails to show no matter how much you wish for a silver dollar, Dick appeared across the street
Two occasions of dipping my toes back into the dating pool after my old boyfriend broke my heart back in Sun Haven, and I was already wanting to go full-on up to my ankles with this guy.
“Snowball, you’re going to have to play nice if you want to live here,” I said, hearing the empty threat in my words and knowing there was zero chance we would ever give the cat away just because we had a learning curve on how to make this work.
Now that I didn’t have to worry as much about my income stream, I could think about other things…sweeter things…like Peanut Butter Clusters and PupCakes
The furry girl and I were whizzing along Ocean Avenue for another day of work in paradise.
“It’s not my fault you’re a magnet for murder.”
Aunt Mary in spandex was one thing. Trumble in spandex was a good reason to wash my eyes out with battery acid.
A few months ago, when I lived in Sun Haven, I didn’t run into a murderer once, far as I know. This town was rife with them
