Pet Rescue Mystery #5
Berkley Prime Crime
January 7, 2014
Available in: Paperback
Los Angeles animal shelter manager Lauren Vancouver has a
soft spot for animals in need—and a keen eye for
crime. . .
Thanks to a savvy ad campaign featuring
teacup pups sporting HotPets Bling—a new line of faux
jewelry dog collars—small dog adoptions have
skyrocketed across the city. So when Lauren discovers a
shelter in the Midwest with more toy dogs than it can
handle, she arranges a private plane to swoop in and fly the
pups back to LA.
But Lauren didn’t count on rescue
worker Teresa Kantrim coming along for the ride. Teresa has
cared for the dogs since they were found and doesn’t
trust anyone from La-La Land to take over the job. Her
biting comments clearly haven’t earned Teresa any new
friends, but when she turns up murdered, it’s time for
Lauren to dig into Teresa’s past and find out who
wanted her put down.
