The passions aroused by canine competition can inspire violent fantasies. But when a talented handler falls flat on her face during the obedience trials, Australian Shepherd lover Janet MacPhail can hardly believe someone would actually resort to murder.

As she takes care of her mother and falls for a hunky black Lab owner, the last thing Janet needs is to find out she's become a "person of interest." Nosing around for clues that might clear her good name, Janet and her friends--Australian Shepherd Jay, tabby cat Leo, and eccentric neighbor Goldie Sunshine--discover the hard way that killers don't like snoops. And it soon becomes apparent that the next victim might just be Janet herself.

Praise: "Sheila Webster Boneham's delightful debut mystery combines a likeable sleuth and] a keep-'em-guessing plot. First place with a perfect score "--Susan Conant, author of the Dog Lovers Mystery series
