I love the title for Jacqui Lane’s new release, Maltipoos Are Murder, it just makes me grin. 😀 And the plot made me giggle. I have Maltipoos Are Murder on my TBR mountain. (And I’m still just beaming.) Check it out and add it to your pile if it makes you happy too. Oh! Enjoy the guest post by Jacqui and Lane. They indulged my curious streak. 😉

♥ Guest Post ♥

The girls asked me for guest post topics so I was my normal nosy self and asked questions. They couldn’t pick so they turned it into a mini-interview and answered both my questions. Ha! Curiosity does NOT kill this Kat. 😛


The Secret of the Mansion (Trixie Belden, #1)
Me: What book or series hooked you on mysteries? I started with Trixie Belden and Nancy Drew 😛


JC: I read my first Nancy Drew at six years old and read many of those as well as Trixie Belden. When I was 12, I started in on Agatha Christie.Death on the Nile (Hercule Poirot, #17)


LS: In elementary school I read, Janet Lennon and the Angels – which I still have- then other Janet Lennon and the Angelsbooks in the series. In high school I started reading Agatha Christie. When I got my first job out of college, I bought a nicely bound set of Agatha Christie books


Me: How do you write in tandem/together? Phone calls/ skype/visits?


JC: We used to live close to each other, so we would meet at the Panera’s close to both our houses. Since I’ve moved about half an hour away now, we usually do phone or e-mail.

Can a murder investigation keep these opposites from attracting?

Cara Rogers wants a fresh start after a slew of bad luck in Washington DC. Moving to Virginia to help her aunt run La Maison de Chien, a doggie spa, is just the peace of mind she needs. No stress. Just her aunt, the dogs, and wide-open country.

But when she finds Aunt Marian floating in the doggie swimming pool, the rest she so desperately needs flies out the window. The only witness to the death is Rex, an apricot maltipoo, and while he may not be able to talk, he’s communicating the only way he knows how—one paw at a time. And Rex’s clues lead to murder.
Can Cara keep the doggie spa afloat, convince Middleburg homicide detective Cole Sampson that Aunt Marian’s death was no accident, and keep Rex from the killer’s clutches before they all end up as dead as dogs?
