Overview

When Sheriff Jason Savage calls Niki Edgar to a murder scene, she arrives unaware the prime suspect is none other than her ex-husband, DeWayne’s, girlfriend, Cybil. She finds out when she smells Cybil in the murder victim’s closet.

Smells her? Yes! Niki suffers from hyperosmia, a medical condition that causes her to possess a superhuman ability to smell. As you can imagine, life takes on a certain intensity for hyperosmics.

Life gets complicated when the hunky sheriff and the ex-husband she’s not quite over ask Niki to help prove Cybil’s innocence. She reluctantly agrees, then spends a horrible few days vascillating between trying to prove Cybil’s innocence and hoping to find she did, in fact, murder her husband.

A fun story filled with hilarious situations, Niki Knows the Dirt is the book to take to the beach or curl up with on a rainy afternoon. First in the Niki Edgar Mystery series, Niki Knows the Dirt introduces sassy, sexy, lovable hyperosmic Niki Edgar, the men in her life, and the trouble she can’t seem to stay out of. A first person narrative, Niki’s quirky personality and penchant for embarrassing herself will keep you wanting to know what happens next!

Except for the fiddling part, she’s not anything like Niki Edgar, which her mother will probably be happy to hear. Oh yes, and denise does love a Godiva every now and then. And maybe a margarita or two.

She lives on a farm in rural Alabama. She enjoys gardening, exercising, reading, music, and making pottery. She lives with her husband and a visiting cat named Elizabeth. She has three sons whom she adores and the sweetest daughters-in-law in the world.

denise graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in Creative Writing. She is the author of several other books, but denise is a pseudonym, so good luck finding those 

This is the first book by denise hays that I have read - it won't be my last. Bloodhound is hysterical, intriguing, has great character development and mixes everyday life experiences that most women have had with a few not so usual twists and many turns. It's hard to put this book down. The writer lets Niki "get under your skin" and I tried to help her on every page. An easy read, a great story. Kudos to denise hays. I can't wait for her next book !

LOVE this book. Niki is funny, vulnerable, edgy, and innocent - all rolled into one. Ms. hays' characters are well-rounded and believable. The story is fast paced, and I caught myself laughing out loud at Niki's responses to the circumstances around her. Wonderful entertainment!
