Hounded by Zoe Dawson
Going to the Dogs Series Book 3
Poe Madigan judged her men in an unusual way. Were they bacon worthy? Would they be Zombie killers or Zombie food? She tended to date the more brainy guys who were more likely food than killers. When her partner for the Fur Ball had to back out he was replaced with a definite bacon worthy Zombie killer type. It didn’t take long for the hunky Texas and his adorable basset to work his way into her heart and home.

Rating: 5/5 stars

POE!!! Poe Madigan and her Terrible Two (the terriers known as Edgar and Allan) are the focus of Hounded, book three of Zoe Dawson’s Going to the Dogs series. Of the dog park group of girls, Poe is by far the weirdest of the bunch. Poe is a strange mix Goth girl and nerd with a passion for animals and bacon and a true belief in a Zombie Apocalypse. Does it really get any better

This is book three of this series and they just keep getting better and better. The first two were really great and I didn’t think you could beat it, but Zoe has done just that.
Hounded is Poe’s story and Poe I have to say is my favourite of the four girls, and the Terrible two are just so darn cute! I love them all but Poe I just relate with more. Poe gets mugged and threatening letters, so her rich friend, Harper, secretly hires a body guard for her.
Jared is a specialist and ex- marine t

OK, I have to get this out of the way: I’m a cat lady. I love dogs, have had three very special pooches in my lifetime and I’m grandmother to a delightful cattle dog mix BUT…I’m a cat lady. Now, though, I have to change my tune a little because I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Poe and Jared and the Terrible Two, Poe because she’s a goth and is into bacon and zombies and the Terrible Two because it’s awfully hard to resist Jack Russell terriers. Then there are their names—I mean, come on, ...more

Hounded is the third book in the Going to the Dogs Series. It is fun, mysterious, and full of laughs.

Poe and her two dogs, Edgar and Allan, or also known as "The Terrible Two", are mugged at the beginning of the story. The Terrible Two do their best to protect Poe, but it doesn't keep Poe from going to the hospital with a concussion. There her three best dog park friends, Harper, Brooke, and Callie come to check on her.

Worried about Poe, Harper hires her friend and body g

I received an ARC for Zoe Dawson's "Groomed for Murder" and she was gracious enough to include "Hounded" also.

Poe Madigan is being threatened and after she is mugged, she lands in the hospital. One of her closest friends goes to Jared Taylor, a former military man who now owns a successful security company. He agrees to become Poe's new partner for the Fur Ball, a dance competition that includes dogs, in order to guard her without her knowledge. Of course, things don't always go as p

Love This Story

This is the first time I've read a book by this author and I loved it. Poe is a smart, sassy vet that loves animals that's having problems with an unknown threat. Knowing how independent Poe is (make that hard headed) her friend Harper hires an undercover bodyguard to watch over her. Jared protects Poe as a favor to Harper. It should have been a simple job but things get complicated when Jared falls in love with her. Edgar, Allan and Daisy are the comic relief in the story ( E

A great addition to Zoe Dawson's Dog series. I loved every minute of the book. Poe enters a dance competition with her two dogs and a partner that backs out. She needs to win the competition so she can give the money to her mom to pay off her mortgage. Her new dance partner that was hired by her friend Harper as a body guard but she doesn't want Poe to find out. Jared can't dance the steps Poe wants him to do and the dog he borrowed Daisy is very lazy. Can they make this work? Both of them are f ...more

I loved following Poe and Jared's story. The ups and downs of new love. So many thing that can break a relationship or make it. Along with the funny terrible two that just made the story that much more loveable. I would recommend this to any one that has a love for animals!
