She has to stay low. Ears to the ground. Danger's nipping at her heels.

Mel's tracking a killer in the world of racing dachshunds.

Wiener takes all at the Laguna Beach Dachshund Dash. Melinda Langston, owner of Bow Wow Boutique, and her quirky assistant, Betty Foxx, are on hand to root for their favorite racers. But before the starting gun goes off, hated dachshund owner, Richard Eriksen, is found dead, and gun-toting Betty is suspect number one.

Determined to clear Betty's name, Mel quickly picks up the scent of the cutthroat world of Doxie racing. Cheating. Doping. Gambling. Controversy lies at every turn. It seems everyone has a secret--including Betty. The killer is hot on Mel's heels. Can Mel expose the truth before the killer catches her?

This weekend, the Dachshund Dash has come to town, and Mel has closed down her Bow Wow Boutique to be there. Not only does she have a booth, but she is also providing the official racing jerseys for the contestants. While she isn't familiar with the backstage drama associated with this racing circuit, she quickly gets a crash course when Lenny and Richard, the owners of the dogs expected to finish in first and second, get into an argument right outside her booth. A little while later, her assistant, Betty, gets into an altercation with Richard, even brandishing a gun at him. So, naturally, when Mel finds Richard's dead body after he's been shot, Betty becomes the prime suspect. Only Betty claims that someone, a girl with a dachshund tattoo, took the gun away from her. Why is Betty being so secretive? Where is her gun? Who shot Richard? This is another fabulous book in the series. The plot introduces us to a couple of solid suspects before the murder takes place, and it then gives us a few more once things really get going. We get plenty of twists and turns before Mel figures everything out. And we also get plenty of humor. I was grinning and chuckling when I wasn't laughing. The characters can be a bit broad as a result as they serve the dual purpose of suspect and provider of laughs, but it works for the series. It helps that Mel is very real, and her concern comes through. The result is lots of fun.

Reading this series always gives me such pleasure.  The love for animals and a good mystery combinee with great friendships makes for a delightful cozy.  Betty gets on my nerves but I still can't resist her. When Betty suggests that Melinda sponsor shirts for the local Dachshund Dash and set up a booth, it sounds like perfect advertisement for her pet boutique and a lot of fun.  Of course things never turn out as they should. Melinda spends more time trying to keep Betty out of trouble, and trying to discover who is murdering people at the not so fun races than she does in her booth.  That would be bad enough but Grey shows up and their relationship appears to be in jeopardy, that stupid broach.
