    this series centers on manager of a pet rescue facility. lauren

    this series centers on manager of a pet rescue facility. lauren has been recruited to oversee that the care and feeding of dogs is carried out for the dogs welfare on a movie set. her friend carlie, a vet is also working on set. the films director is murdered and her friend carlie is the #1 suspect. lauren tries to help by investigating. this series is intriguing because they are about domestic animals. in this case many poodles. this story held my interest because of the many references to the movie business in relation to the treatment of animals in a movie. i'll be watching for the 'no animals harmed in this filming' label from now on. ms linda keeps us in the dark about whodunit until the very end. it's a surprise!! the info on the filming, the mystery and the romance are all wrapped up iin a story n ot to be missed!!! can't wait for the next one.

    Lauren is on hand to observe a movie that stars oodles of poodle

    Lauren is on hand to observe a movie that stars oodles of poodles, a movie about rescued poodles no less. Also on hand are Lauren’s friend, veterinarian Carlie Stellan and Grant, a handsome representative from the American Humane Association. They are all there to insure no animals are hurt or in danger during the movie production.




    Unfortunately the movie’s director didn’t have anyone protecting him. He was killed in a very suspicious hit and run accident after arguing with several people about animal safety. Carlie was one of the more outspoken people speaking up for the animal and that lands her in the hot seat as a prime suspect. Lauren start to search through the oodles of clues to try to save her friend and catch a killer before someone else is put out of the picture.





    I love this series because the author takes on real things that happen with animals and builds her intriguing mysteries around that issue. I have wondered for years about animals on television and movies and will now look for the “No Animals Harmed” tagline.




    Lauren really does step in “it” in this installment, so much so that a few of the members of the production crew really don’t even want to be around her. She was clearly stumped by this mystery until the clues started to come together. I like that in a story – when the protagonist struggles with the evidence and suspects – and things don’t just magically fall into place. The struggles with Matt and Lauren’s relationship scare me a bit. Is their relationship strong enough to weather the ebbs and flows of the life that keep getting thrown at them?




    Great Characters – Great Animals – Great Setting – Great Plot – Great Cozy Mystery!!!’
