When a local vet and a pampered pet disappear, Holly Winter and her veterinarian lover Steve Delaney go to the exclusive Cambridge Dog Training Club to investigate.
Thrown a bone—by a killer Holly Winter’s a Dog’s Life columnist in the wrong side of thirty, a canine-loving detective sniffing our crime and corruption on the streets of Cambridge. Holly is a dog’s best friend—and murder’s worst enemy. . . . If your name is Holly Winter, Yuletide can be a real female dog. When a local vet and a pampered pet suddenly disappear, Holly scents hemlock amid the pine and mistletoe and follows the tracks of a purebred killer. To get a leg up on the mystery, Holly takes her two Alaskan malamutes and hunk veterinarian Steve Delaney into the exclusive Cambridge Dog Training Club and back out onto the dangerous streets of the city. She won’t quit until she muzzles a rare breed of two-time killer because—when it comes to dognapping and sudden death—Holly has a short leash for murder. . . .

"It is Carmichael’s scenic descriptions of the northern Arizona setting, insider’s peek into the world of therapy pets and loveable characters, both human and otherwise, that make this lighthearted romp worth savoring."—Publishers Weekly
