The Puppy Who Knew Too Much by V.M. Burns was an engaging second book in the Dog Club Mystery series.

Lilly Echosby and her toy poodle, Aggie, have moved to Chattanooga, TN to start a new life. Her best friend, Dixie, has welcomed her to her home town and is ready to help her get settled. I love both of these women! They are both smart, independent and determined. Fortune smiles on Lilly when she meets Mrs. Hanson who decides to rent her son's house and she knows about a job opening that would be

The story is cute with strong and sassy leading female characters. Protagonist Lilly Echosby is a recently divorced CPA who’s just moved from Indiana to Chattanooga, Tennessee with her toy poodle, Aggie (short for Agatha). I like how the action starts immediately as Lilly, accompanied by her best friend, Dixie, has the opportunity to rent a nice house practically drop right in her lap. A disagreeable neighbor manages to infuriate her quickly, but she’s told no one can get along with him. Lilly’s ...more

In THE PUPPY WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, V. M. Burns has penned an entertaining whodunit that will leave readers begging for more.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. With wonderful characters both human and canine, I quickly felt like I had known them all for some time. And it was a lot of fun to see the dogs playing a part in solving the case.

A great plot and a complex mystery, I found it very hard to put this book down. I kept telling myself, just one more page. One more chapter. Well, I’m sure you know

Very fun cozy mystery. It appealed to me as a dog person and anyone who loves dogs will most likely enjoy it. I wasn’t sure who did it all the way up to the end and even then got surprised.

*I received a free copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

This book is just too adorable for words!!! To start with the cover is just too cute with all the puppies and that is before the story. I side we get a town full of adorable fur babies that help solve the case while moving the story along. Lilly is a strong lead character with some interesting side kicks. Full of humor, mystery, and cuteness to create a book you just cannot stop reading. Perfect for fans

A book with dogs on the cover and I fell for it.
The Puppy Who Knew Too Much is a story with a lot of things in the mix. A second chance at life, a bit of romance, resilience, dog training, and a lot of canine love!
As a beloved pet unearths a dead body and through the course of investigations the body count increases, it all becomes a rather disturbing occurrence to what was once a peaceful residential area.
I loved the book for its characters who are strong and resilient. They love their pets a

This second book in the series is even better than the first!
A first rate mystery that kept me entertained and guessing (incorrectly!). The story was well written and engaging from start to finish.
The characters are really enjoyable and I look forward to reading the next in the series!

I really enjoyed this second book in the Dog Club Mystery series. I loved the first one, and I enjoyed this one as much or more. Lilly Echosby is a recently widowed CPA who’s just moved from Indiana to Chattanooga, Tennessee with her toy poodle, Aggie (short for Agatha). The first book in this series has her in the middle of a divorce, but when her husband is killed, she becomes a widow instead.

I so much enjoy VM Burns' cozy mysteries. They are so well-written and intriguing, and they star protagonists and their friends and family who are strong, intrepid, nearly fearless women, who refuse to be objects or chattel and neither are they afraid to speak their minds! In THE PUPPY WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, Lilly Echosby has moved to Chattanooga from her lifelong home in Lighthouse Dunes, Indiana, following her husband's attempt at divorce, his murder, and her temporary status as prime suspect.

The Puppy Who Knew Too Much by V. M. Burns is the 2nd book in the Dog Club Mystery, and another wonderful addition. I have enjoyed the author's Mystery Bookshop series, and her first book in Dog Club Mystery series. Ms. Burns is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Lilly Echosby's husband left her after thirty six years of marriage, so she decides to move to Florida and get a puppy her husband would never let her have. Lilly's new toy poodle is named Agatha Christie, and she can be a han ...more

Lily and Aggie have physically (and emotionally) moved but they can't get away from trouble! Lily and her friend Dixie are back in this second installment in a series about a, ahem, mature woman who finds herself solving murders. And, best of all, working with her poodle Aggie and rescuing other dogs. This time Aggie digs up a body in a neighbor's yard (yikes!) Who is who and what is what? All in all, this is a good cozy , especially for fans of books with dogs. Aggie and Dixie have a terrific r ...more

The Puppy Who Knew Too Much, the second great entry in VM Burns Dog Club mystery series, is another winner. A recent entry into the world of the cozy mystery, Ms. Burns has been spot-on with every book she has released and this series is taking off like a flash. The newest book includes a perplexing mystery that left me trailing around with no clue and an insightful presentation of characters who brought the warmth that I demand of a cozy mystery. Those characters feel realistic even when they f ...more

Second in the Dog Club Mystery series, this delightful cozy is even better than the first! In the midst of murder and mayhem, the author delivers a healthy dose of humor, friendship, and fresh starts in a new city, rental home, and temporary job in the genteel South.

Even with the best of intentions, it isn’t always easy to start over in a new city, and Lilly Echosby, whose almost-ex-husband was found murdered recently, is doing her best with her new pup, Aggie. Chattanooga, Tennessee is where on

Chattanooga, Tennessee, is my hometown, and it is also the setting of V. M. Burns’ The Puppy Who Knew Too Much. Although I know Chattanooga has changed since I moved away from the South, this book became a trip down memory lane. There are many factual details that make the book more realistic—the scary winding roads leading up to beautiful and tony Lookout Mountain, interstate highways that ease traffic across the Scenic City, and greasy burgers and delicious shakes in East Ridge. Other aspects ...more

Some mystery series can suffer from sophomore slump but this series is definitely not one of them. The Puppy Who Knew Too Much is just as strong, just as enjoyable as the first in the series, In The Dog House. After the huge life change Lilly went through in the first book, she pulls herself together and hits the road, moving to Chattanooga. Her friend Dixie lives there with her husband and two standard poodles and that friendship gives Lilly the anchor she needs now. As luck would have it she a ...more

If it wasn’t a definite after the first novel, it is now - I absolutely love V M Burns’ wonderful new mystery series.  Not only does it have brave, funny, and lovable pups, it also has fascinating larger than life characters (I love Dixie) and just the right amount of humor.  The Puppy Who Knew Too Much even has a hint of romance.


After solving her cheating husband’s murder, Lily and her poodle, Aggie, make a fresh start in Chattanooga Tennessee.  What she doesn’t expect is to come into conflict
