An out of town dog show, a creepy old inn (could it even be haunted?), a mischievous (some even say he�s psychic) Saluki and � comic books?
What do all these things have in common? Not a heck of a lot�unless, of course, you�re hanging out with Rhiannon Antonio and her Junior Handler friends.

Travel with Ree, Jake, Stacy and their dogs (including Ree�s trouble-attracting Saluki hound, Merlin) to a distant dog show, where the families wind up staying in a run-down old inn. In The Willow�s Shade finds our young handlers chasing shadows, tracking the theft of one of Jake�s prize possessions, and landing in hot water once again.

Of course, this is all thanks to good old Merlin (although his Irish Setter pal Finn has a paw in this one, too)!

In The Willow�s Shade follows The Corpse That Wasn�t There and Wild Wings of Danger as the third book in the Junior Handlers Mystery Series.

About the Author

Gayle Nastasi is a writer, wildlife rehabilitator and professional animal communicator who lives with her family in the beautiful mountains of upstate New York. The non-human members of her family include a Saluki hound, several cats, and a trio of talking Starlings. In addition, an ever-changing array of wild birds moves through her life, as new rescues come in, are raised, and are released back into their natural world. Her love for animals, and her work in animal rescue, has a strong influence on the subjects about which she chooses to write. She is also the owner/moderator of the internet group, JrShow-L. It was her enthusiasm for Junior Showmanship, and her desire to encourage the bond between young people and animals, which inspired the Junior Handler Mystery Series.
