Welcome to Creede, a lovely little western town in the Colorado Rockies. This year's renowned theater production stars an Australian Shepherd with stage fright, two backstage love triangles, a shifty stagehand...and a real-life murder. Dog therapist Allie Babcock has grasped the brass ring of work assignments-stunning scenery, the love of her life at her side, and stage-training a brilliant Australian Shepherd and an adorable Pug. The dogs are starring in a romantic comedy, "Good Dog, Blue!" written and directed by a friend of Allie's boyfriend. Within an hour of Allie's arrival, however, a heavy light fixture crashes onto the stage, nearly hitting the Shepherd. Before night has fallen on this not-so-sleepy town, a cast member is poisoned, and an anonymous note warns that Allie might be next. To leave puts a dog in jeopardy. To stay puts everything Allie holds dear at risk. Can she thwart a determined killer before the final curtain?

About the Author
Maintaining a sense of humor is a mainstay of Leslie's life. Many years ago, when taken hostage in a robbery by an irate customer afterhours at the bar where she was head waitress, Leslie thought, "This guy is taking his having missed last call way too seriously." That made her laugh, which in turn made the robber strike her with his shotgun. The experience taught her that writing about crimes is much more fun than taking part in them.

I have enjoyed the Allie Babcock Mysteries. All of the books could use some proofreading. There are references to Sam and Sam in a couple of sentences that should be Sam and John. In the prior book, Allie refers to Pavlov as a he in one instance and there is a reference to Toofroo that should be Bailey. It's these small inconsistencies that can be confusing to the reader but the story lines are engaging and interesting.
