Overview

Would you recognize a serial killer if you met one?

Talked to one every day? Artist Lia Anderson doesn't, and neither does anyone else who frequents the Mount Airy Dog Park. When Lia's boyfriend, Luthor, dies violently, Detective Peter Dourson is assigned to the case.

Peter penetrates the close-knit group of dog lovers with the help of Viola, the dead man's dog. The more he learns, the more he is convinced that someone is not who they seem.

As the investigation uncovers Luthor's secrets, Lia struggles to make sense of her feelings about Luthor and her growing attraction to Peter.

Meanwhile, a killer hides in plain sight and anyone can become a target.

Meet the Author

C. A. (Carol Ann) Newsome writes the Lia Anderson Dog Park Mysteries, a series of fun, romantic suspense/mystery novels which are inspired by and centered around her mornings at the Mount Airy Dog Park with her trio of rescues (rowdy hooligans).

A life-long lover of fiction, Carol turned to books and audiobooks during her decade-long recovery from a head injury that occurred when she and her bike were struck by a car. Years of immersing herself in popular fiction lead to imagining the book she wanted to read, and wondering if she could actually write it.

She is also an artist with an M.F.A. from the University of Cincinnati. You'll see portraits of some of her favorite four-footed friends on the covers of her books. She enjoys creating community-based public artworks. As an artist, she is best known for her New Leaf Global Good-Will Guerrilla Art Project.

Her other interests include astrology, raw food and all forms of psychic phenomena. She likes to sing to her dogs. The dogs are the only ones who like to listen.

    180 pages, cute

    This 180 page book was free. The over view was interesting. I did not read the other review. It looked like a plot spoiler and it was solicited. The book was well edited. There was some ho- hum sex. Murder(s), which had a dab of blood and good, some other violence but not too bad, wiccans, no christian religion, no cursing, drug use or animal abuse. There some unneeded details, which did not pertain to the story. The author has a fetish for VanDam ( The Rock) especially in the Pacifer, and I enjoyed the movie references. The ending was a cliff hanger. Now I will have to purchase book two. I don't really mind, as I did enjoy this novel. It had some lovable dogs, which acted like real canines, likable characters and a very puzzleing whodunit. For ages 16 and up.

    Ending????

    Was a great read but the ending left much to be desired--you never get the answer to the "who done it" but I'm guessing a sequel is in the making.

    Dogs Parkers unite

    Very good read. Would loved for Peter to have arrested the real killer. That would have earned five stars. "Dog Park" series is a keeper.
