Travel to picturesque New Bergen—where murder and mayhem abound. Where a dog and his guy are the sharpest sleuthing team in town…
After his business tanks and his wife ditches him for her Pilates coach, Andy Skyberg flees the big city for the peace and quiet of his hometown. All he wants is a decent job, a steady girlfriend, and a loyal canine. But fate has something else in store for Andy, when his jumbo mutt King Harald starts sniffing out crime.
The Karma of King Harald… When springtime arrives in New Bergen, so do the tourists and antiquers. This year, though, there are some unwelcome visitors. Extortion. Arson. And murder. It's clear that someone has it in for New Age retailer Trudi Bock. And it's also clear that she wants to rekindle her old romance with Andy. With Harald digging up clues in the case, it falls to Andy to channel his inner sleuth and make sense of it all. Throw into this mix one legendary ebelskiver recipe…a gimlet-eyed church lady…a van full of federal agents…a crusty socialist…a beloved iguana…and you have one classic, super-fun canine cozy mystery.
King Harald's Heist… Andy is focusing his full attention on his sister's new café—and on the sexy Finnish architect who's managing the project. But Andy can't catch a break. The two elderly sisters who live next to him want him to fend off a historian who thinks they had a scandalous past. Aunt Bev tricks him into seeking an improbable and unwanted new gig. And King Harald has a kennel full of trouble in store for him, beginning with a pilfered thousand-dollar bill and a naughty garden gnome. Before long, the crime-sniffing pooch finds all kinds of deep doo-doo to toss his boss into.
King Harald's Snow Job… Andy Skyberg is itching to blow town for a weekend of holiday cheer with old friends. But first, Aunt Bev needs a teensy bit of help with the Girls' Weekend Out event at the big resort hotel. Andy figures he can spare a few hours. Mother Nature, though, has other plans. A massive blizzard strands Andy and Harald in a hotel full of hard-partying women, snowbound travelers, hockey pucksters, a man-eating novelist, a belligerent blogger, and one violent, devious jewel thief. Before you know it, man and mutt are up to their snowy noses in another case. It's a winter wonderland of fast-paced fun and merry madness.
