A Melanie Travis MysteryBook - 2000
Summer means two things to Melanie Travis: a break from her teaching duties at Connecticut¿s elite Howard Academy and a chance to plan the perfect wedding to her fiancé, Sam. She certainly doesn¿t need the unwelcome arrival of a dinner invitation ¿peace offering¿ from Sam¿s ex-wife, Sheila Vaughn. To make matters worse, Sheila announces her temporary stay in town is now permanent: she¿s accepted a job as co-publisher of Woof!, a new gossip rag for the dog show world. But before the first issue is even out, a hotter story breaks when Sheila is found dead, strangled with a leather dog leash. As far as Melanie¿s concerned, the woman should have been on a leash long ago. And it seems she isn¿t alone in her dislike of Sheila. Some of Woof!¿s salacious stories threatened to expose the dirty paws of quite a few important exhibitors, and someone on Sheila¿s staff may have found her high-handed attitude worth silencing. Now, it will take the instincts of a bloodhound to sniff out a killer who¿s bent on putting an end to Melanie¿s amateur sleuthing . . .
