The Puppy Who Knew Too Much
The Puppy Who Knew Too Much by V.M. Burns Kensington Books Lyrical Underground Mystery & Thrillers Pub Date 12 Feb 2019
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 with the neighborhood curmudgeon or find another body and become a suspect in yet another murder investigation. Determined not to leave the investigation to the police, or the charming TBI agent that is helping to protect them, Lily, her daughter Stephanie and her best friend Dixie set off to find the killer.
If you love dogs and lighthearted mysteries with an engaging, unique plot, you should definitely pick up a copy of The Puppy Who Knew Too Much.

I received a copy of The Puppy Who Knew Too Much from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Lilly Echosby and her toy poodle Aggie find a fresh start in Chattanooga, Tennessee, spoiled by the scent of murder . . . Having solved the shooting death of her cheating husband, Lilly's left behind the drama of Lighthouse Dunes, Indiana, to start over in the hometown of her best friend, Scarlett "Dixie" Jefferson. As she gets settled in her new rented house, Lilly gives Aggie, short for Agatha Christie, her own fresh start by enrolling her in the Eastern Tennessee Dog Club, where Dixie is a trainer. But drama seems to hound Lilly like a persistent stray. Her cranky new neighbor appears unfamiliar with Southern hospitality and complains that Aggie barks too much and digs up his prized tulips. But what the poodle actually unearths is the buried body of a mysterious man who claimed ownership of the lost golden retriever Lilly recently rescued. Now it's up to Lilly and Dixie to try to muzzle another murderer . . .
