Product Description

With a new litter of Standard Poodles on the way and her sons enrolled at the Graceland School''s summer camp, it''s shaping up to be a vibrant July in Greenwich, Connecticut for dog show champ and amateur sleuth Melanie Travis. But Melanie''s busy life shows no signs of slowing down for the dog days of summer - especially when the arrival of three rambunctious Dalmatian puppies sets off a series of mysterious events...

While usually protective, Melanie feels comfortable sending her sons to the Graceland School''s summer camp for two reasons: The institution is well-regarded and proprietor Emily Grace is a trusted friend. But Emily has been acting strange since three rambunctious Dalmatian puppies suddenly appeared on her doorstep. The unusual arrival marks the first of several mysterious happenings at camp, each more intense than the last. Emily''s rough streak takes a frightening turn with a discovery in the nearby woods--the body of her estranged ex-husband.

As suspicions rush in, proving that Emily didn''t murder her biggest mistake will be about as easy as raising prize-winning show dogs. Realizing she''s the only one who can prove her friend''s innocence and keep the Graceland School from shutting down, Melanie dives into an investigation on the victim''s whereabouts leading up to his demise. With a few spotty clues and Aunt Peg''s growing curiosity about the Dalmatian pups'' origins, Melanie must name the culprit before good intentions come back to bite!

This is the latest in a sweet series involving a gal who learns to show poodles from her aunt, a breeder and dog show judge. Melanie was a single mom who is now married to Sam and has a second son. Mysteries and intrigue seem to find her. The mysteries are interesting, the various characters are fun, the language is clean, and the author clearly understands dogs and dog shows. I have read every one of her books and found this one to be just as good as all the others. Nothing dark or dirty, just enjoyable or escapist reading. I have come to love all of the characters and look forward to the next Melanie Travis mystery.

It was just too short, but Laurien I''m sure your next book will tell us if Kevin gets to keep one of Willows'' puppies and what mystery Melanie gets entangled in next!

I’m not going to tell you what this mystery was about. If you like dogs, dog shows, or mysteries, you will love this book. I read it in one day because once I started it, I couldn’t put it down.

I enjoy the way Laurie Berenson writes, in a very breezy funny style that makes me chuckle. Her amateur detective does little detecting, mostly running from place to place to question everyone until the answer surfaces.. Lots of dog show "color". I had two complaints about this particular entry. 1) the solution to the mystery made no sense. (I don''t really care, because I had fun). 2) She complains about rescue groups saying, "Adopt don''t shop" without saying a word about how the AKC enables terrible cruel puppy mills by providing them with "papers".

Another great read
Reviewed in the United States on September 12, 2021
I love the Melanie Travis series, and not just because it includes dogs. The story in Pup Fiction was well written, with just enough false clues to keep you guessing. The mystery kept me engaged to the end.
