As the dog days of summer turn to the playful nip of autumn's chill, Melanie Travis is ready for a little relaxation. Her Aunt Peg has the perfect solution--a five-day symposium for dog show judges in Pennsylvania's idyllic Pocono Mountains. While Peg and Melanie's sister-in-law Bertie welcome the opportunity to socialize with the dog world's elite, the very pregnant Melanie embraces the chance to simply unwind.

But when renowned judge Charles Evans delivers a keynote address that irritates many of the attendees, the symposium's agenda takes a deadly turn. For later that evening, Charles is found floating face-down in the outdoor hot tub.

With few clues to go on, the police are baffled. But Melanie decides to take matters into her own hands, suspecting that a cold-blooded murderer may lurk among her fellow dog-lovers. . .

"This canine cozy is absorbing enough to delight even cat lovers."
-- Publishers Weekly

"The mystery keeps the book rolling along, but it's the entertaining relationships Melanie has with her family that keep the reader involved."
-- Romantic Times

A convention and controversy culminates in murder. No dog shows in this one but there are still dogs even though the entire story takes place in a hotel. Rules don't apply to Aunt Peg.
