Hi folks,

The latest installment in The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries, is now available for pre-order on Amazon. You can grab your copy here: http://amzn.to/2xKMp9d

It’s Book #12 in the series and is called, The Case of the Lovable Labs and I think fans of the Doggy Inn series are going to enjoy it.

It’s also my twentieth book, something I consider to be both a milestone and a minor miracle. I’m pretty fortunate to be able to have a job that basically entails me thinking up a bunch of goofy stuff and writing it down. And for your ongoing support and encouragement, I continue to be extremely grateful.

Here are the cover and summary for The Case of the Lovable Labs.

Happy reading!



One wedding, two murders, three of the most adorable Labrador puppies Suzy and Josie have ever seen, and a wide variety of suspects provide the foundation for The Case of the Lovable Labs, book #12 in the increasingly popular, Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries.

It’s wedding time for Sammy and Jill, two of the Inn’s most important staff members, and it should be a joyous time for them as well as their friends and families. But when the boyfriend of Jill’s mother drops dead while giving his toast during the rehearsal dinner, things take a turn for the worse in a hurry. And when a second body is found after the reception, it becomes clear that the two murders are definitely connected, and a whole host of suspects are soon lined up directly in Suzy’s sights.

At the top of the list are Jill’s sister, her maid of honor who’s taking her responsibilities way too seriously, and her mother, a woman with a few serious issues of her own. Also on Suzy’s list are two of Jill’s aunts who have a fondness for Kamikazes, and like the maid of honor and her mother, were previously romantically involved with the first victim. And just when Suzy and Chief Abrams begin to narrow their search for the killer, the second victim is discovered, and it’s back to square one.

Further complicating things is the tension between the maid of honor and Josie, as well as between Suzy and her mother who is convinced that her daughter has finally gone off the deep end. And when Suzy puts herself in an extremely dangerous situation, she provides her mom, along with everyone else, with more than enough ammunition to prove the point.

The Thousand Islands Doggy Inn Mysteries features two of the smartest and funniest lead female protagonists to hit the cozy mystery scene in a very long time, and Suzy and Josie’s affection for food and their boundless love and devotion to their dogs puts this new series in the don’t miss category. The Case of the Lovable Labs is the latest installment in this fast-paced and funny series that affectionately focuses on dogs, food, and the natural beauty of the Thousand Islands region.


On another front, Book #11,The Case of the Klutzy King Charles, remains the #1 Dog Breed book on Amazon and is now available in paperback. You can get a copy here: http://amzn.to/2g0Po5T
