The Puppy Who Knew Too Much
(A Dog Club Mystery)
by V.M. Burns

I really enjoy the way V.M. Burns tells a story. The care she takes with her characters is commendable and her love of dogs glows within the pages.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and made the setting so inviting that I want to go to Chattanooga, Tennessee, for a visit. I would love to spend a week with Lilly and Dixie.
~MJB Reviewers

The sleuth was believable, the mystery was so awesome, and I am glad that the sleuth’s love interest is in law enforcement.
~Baroness’ Book Trove

This book is just too adorable for words!!! . . . Full of humor, mystery, and cuteness to create a book you just cannot stop reading.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews

In THE PUPPY WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, V.M. Burns has penned an entertaining whodunit that will leave readers begging for more.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews

The story is well plotted and executed with strong and sassy leading female characters, twists and turns, a few suspects but no clear motives . . . I highly recommend this one.
~Carla Loves To Read

I was immediately charmed by the characters . . . The author brought them all to life and I had such fun getting to know them.

The characters drew me and didn’t let go.
~My Reading Journeys

This was a well-written story that had a great mystery, good humor, and good relationship elements in it.

Lilly Echosby and her toy poodle Aggie find a fresh start in Chattanooga, Tennessee, spoiled by the scent of murder . . .

Having solved the shooting death of her cheating husband, Lilly’s left behind the drama of Lighthouse Dunes, Indiana, to start over in the hometown of her best friend, Scarlett “Dixie” Jefferson. As she gets settled in her new rented house, Lilly gives Aggie, short for Agatha Christie, her own fresh start by enrolling her in the Eastern Tennessee Dog Club, where Dixie is a trainer.

But drama seems to hound Lilly like a persistent stray. Her cranky new neighbor appears unfamiliar with Southern hospitality and complains that Aggie barks too much and digs up his prized tulips. But what the poodle actually unearths is the buried body of a mysterious man who claimed ownership of the lost golden retriever Lilly recently rescued. Now it’s up to Lilly and Dixie to try to muzzle another murderer . . .
