Bark If It’s Murder by V.M. Burns
"Really enjoyed this book! Love that the whole dog training group helped out in their own way to put the pieces together. Didn't see the ending coming. Fun read!"
Bark If It’s Murder by V.M. Burns
"Terrific read with a twisty plot and logical but surprise ending. Love Aggie and all the other K9 characters as well as the various people working together to get to the truth.
Thank you to the publisher and netgalley for this arc."
