The focus of this book is on pet stores and puppy mills. It's up to Holly Winter to track down the mystery of the source of Malamute puppies in a local pet shop. At first convinced that the puppy had to have come from the midwest, she later realizes that the actual problem is much closer to home.
One thing I have noticed in these books is that they are definitely written in the 90s. It's interesting how just the slightest things really highlight that!
