Overview

She’s Named After A Motorcycle. Her Dad’s An Elvis Impersonator. Her Mom Talks To Spirit Guides.
Someone’s Kidnapped The Family Dog—Named King, in Elvis’s Honor. There’s a Ransom Note.
And Then Things Really Get Weird.

Memphis tour guide, Harley Jean Davidson, is about to enjoy a rare day off when her parents call with news that King, their border collie, has been dognapped. Harley Jean’s mom insists the culprit is Bruno Jett, their next door neighbor. Harley Jean would rather run over her own foot with a motorcycle than talk to him. He’s drop-dead gorgeous—with a dangerous attitude she’d like to avoid.

But King has to be rescued, so she sets off to find him. Harley Jean gets more than she bargains for when she finds a body, as well. Bruno Jett is definitely involved, but how?

The Memphis P.D. wants to pin the murder on Harley Jean’s dad. Now it’s up to her to clear his name . . . and avoid becoming the killer’s next victim.

Virginia Brown is the author of more than fifty novels, including the bestselling Dixie Diva mystery series.

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    Harley Jean Davidson is a Memphis tour guide who spend most of her time driving conventioneers and tourists to Graceland and Beale Street. Her parents, Yogi and Diva, are old hippies who never quite gave up the flower child lifestyle. When their dog, King (named, of course, for Elvis) is dognapped, they call Harley for help. While searching for King, she finds their elderly neighbor murdered. When Yogi and Diva go missing, the police leap to the conclusion that Yogi must be guilty. Harley makes it her mission to find her parents before the police do.

    Any novel that is set in Memphis, has a protagonist named after the iconic motorcycle, features the Peabody, Beale Street, and barbecue, has to be good. Add two characters named Yogi and Diva and you know it's going to be a fun read. Because I don't believe in "spoilers", I won't explain this next part, but by the time Harley started carrying a wooden phallus, I knew this was a series I would return to again and again. It has a good plot, entertaining dialogue, offbeat characters, and again, I have to say it, a wooden phallus.

    If I could, I would give it more than 5 stars. Thank you, thank you very much....

    4 STARS
    I laughed in Hound Dog Blues. In fact I was even thinking
    reminds me of I love Lucy. "Then Harley rubbed her head and
    envisioned them as Lucy and Ethel on speed."

    being kidnapped. A daughter Harley Jean Davidson worried that the police are going
    to arrest her father for murder, So she wants to solve the crime
    first. Police to solve a murder. Police to solve jewelry robbery
    ring. Jewel thief to find the diamond necklace that Yogi had last
    he saw of it.
    Harley was named for a motorcycle. She gave up her stressful
    job working for a bank and now is drives tourists around Memphis.
    When her mom calls up about their dog King being kidnapped.
    King has lots of enemys in their neighborhood. Harley is asking
    her parents neighbors if they have seen him. When she see into
    new good looking neighbor a bunch of jewels on his coffee table.
    another neighbor house she goes into that hates King & Yogi.
    she finds King their and the neighbor dead. Her father who not
    supposed to be at that neighbors house was last seen their.
