To Mr. Dunn and all the others who gave this book low ratings. If you don't want to read about dogs, dog shows and dog breeds don't buy a book that says right in the title or the first few pages that it's dog mystery and has a picture of a dog on the cover. What did you think it was about,aliens or cats? Most people who follow this series and can't wait for the next one, want to read about exactly that, dogs, dogs and dog shows, dog breeding and anything else to do with dogs, get LOST the rest of you. Look for a book that has a picture of something you like on the cover and let the rest of us enjoy the fantastic writing of an author who really knows her subject.

This was a fascinating story line and one of the best books in the sereies so far. The characters are so real I feel like they are old friends. There is just enough romance to keep the story interesting and make you keep rooting for Mel and Sam to work out their problems and get together where they belong.

The dogs are the best of all. Faith'campaign to win her Championship was terrific and very realistic. One of the reasons I love these books so much is because they let me relive all the joy and heartache of such a campaign, that because of physical handicaps I can no longer participate in. I can clearly picture each dog involved, even breeds I am not well versed in. The author describes them so well I can even see their expressions in my mind. I love the asides Melaine thinks to herself.

All in all this is an exciting, well written series of books I would recommend to anyone who loves mysteries and or dogs, not nessecarely in that order.
I recently finished reading "Hot Dog" - A Melanie Travis Mystery (Book 9). I read another (Gone with the Woof) in the series and liked it so much I got this one. This is precedes the other, and there's a lot of character development in it. You really get to know Melanie, her ex, her son, her quirky aunts, her boyfriend and supporting characters, plus a good bit of info about what's involved with showing dogs.
The book is easy to read, and a good mystery and story, that will keep you guessing until the end. Of course, being a Dachshund dad, I enjoying having a dachshund to read about,too- and part of the mystery involves him. If you're looking for an enjoyable mystery that involves dogs- this is one to get I look forward to reading more in the series!
I started her series in the last quarter, got hooked, went back and started at the beginning. So, I have read quite a few now. This one was different from the others. Anyone who likes her books needs to read it. It is pivotal and connects earlier and later events and changes in her life and relationships, still kept me guessing till the end. Very enjoyable.
This cozy series follows Melanie Travis, her son Davey, assorted friends and relatives, and Melanie's standard poodles. Books can be read individually or in order. As a standard poodle owner myself, the dogs are what started me on this series. However, it is the cogent writing, the always intriguing mysteries, and most importantly the character development and relationships that make this series so special. While many cozy series involve a lot of fluff writing and or simplistic characterizations, Berenson grows and expands Melanie and her world with every book.
Global Progression
I have read 8 of her Melanie Travis series. All the characters are extremely likable and after a few books, they make the reader feel that they also know them and are personal friends. This equally applies to the lovable poodles who are an important part of the stories. The author's description of the world of Dog Shows is quite interesting. What I like best about the main characters is that they have a happy relationship and are living a fulfilling life. The plots are quite well thought out and held my interest until the last. I do suggest that a potential reader start with the first book in the series in order to better follow the development in the main characters' lives.
Another great book. I loved that another breed was in this book. I love the way she writes. This one Melanie was alittle slow on the uptake but no wonder with everything that was going on. Still the best animal series I've read.
Melanie has a few complications in her life right now. Sam has returned, and although she still loves him, she still hasn't forgiven him for running out on her. Her ex is still in the picture and hasn't totally accepted the fact that she doesn't want him anymore, except as Davy's father. His latest gift to Davy is a pony however, and he is now dating the owner of the stable, Pam. Pam is awfully possessive for a new relationship, but she is great to Davy and is teaching him to ride and take care of his pony. Bob is also buying into Melanie's brother's coffee bar and they are talking about expansion. Faith's puppy, Eve, is ready for competition, fun, but exhausting. The last thing she needs is to get in the middle of one of her two aunts' disagreements. Rose has accepted a daschund puppy as an item in a charity auction she and her husband are running. She needs help caring for it, and Peg is furious that they would even consider auctioning off a living breathing creature. Melanie finally agrees to take care of the pup. Strange things are also happening in her home, lights are on when they shouldn't be, TV's on in the middle of the night, cumulating in the pups disappearance, and her own dogs being let out of the yard into the street.
As usual, I really enjoyed the book. The mystery isn't really difficult, but there are many twists and turns and some red herrings also. I don't think I can wait another year to find out what happens in the next book. There were a few loose ends I can't wait to see tied up.
As always, a fun ride. Berensen captures the dog show world while providing a huge scoop of entertainment. This book gave a nice transition in Melanie's life, as well a a good mystery. Loved it!
