I've read all of the malamute mysteries so far and I absolutely love them. I have learned as much about the breed from these books as I have from the breed books. As a fellow mal owner, I can totally relate to the dogs' antics. I really like the ending, it leaves you wanting to know what will happen in the next book...and the next. And it's a great whodunit, she constantly keeps you guessing!

Although I must admit to enjoying the latest Holly, Rowdy and Kimi adventure, I thought it lacked some of the spark of her previous books. I do love that she has a 'message' about responsible breeding in her books, but would LOVE to see a little more about rescue. Lets get some dogs 'adopted' and show we are responsible for dogs that are homeless.

Frankly, the fact that Holly figures out whodunit is irrelevant to me. The real lure of Conant's books (besides the fact that she tells a good story) is her knowledge of the dog world. Honestly, I love the books in which Rowdy wins big--the bigger the better. Rowdy should be Best-In-Show at Westminster. But at least we finally get to know that Rowdy's genes will continue through Emma's puppies and that the possibilities of Steve and Holly getting back together are good. We get to see the fall of the wretched ex of Steve Delaney's. The mystery is just an extra added bonus, as is the incompetent, dog-fearing therapist. We find out just how right Buck Winters is when he says Dogs and hard work can cure anything.

Holly Winter, proud owner of two beloved malamutes Kimi and Rowdy, is going through some hard times. She is recovering from a case of amnesia and related neurological problems, while trying to adjust to the fact that her long time lover and vet, Steve Delaney, married somebody else. To add injury to insult, Steve¿s wife is somebody Kelly absolutely despises for good reasons.

To get her mind off her personal problems, Holly spends some time with a group of pet owners and their dogs in a beautiful park in Newton, Mass. One of the members, Sylvia has a golden retriever named Zsa-Zsa who is rambunctious to the point of being dangerous. It is a shock when Holly and some other member of the group find Sylvia dead in the park, killed by a bullet in her chest. Holly goes into her sleuth mode and tries to ferret out the perpetrator.

It has been a long time since Susan Conant has written a book about everyone¿s favorite malamutes but the poignant mystery was well worth the wait. The relationship the heroine and her canines share is precious to behold while Holly¿s sense of justice encourages her to take risks that most people would not. THE WICKED FLEA is a delightful whimsical and humorous mystery that shows off the attributes of humans and canines that are rather similar in nature.
