With her youngest son approaching toddlerhood, she's decided to return to her old job at Howard Academy, a posh private school attended by the children of Greenwich's well-heeled gentry.

But everything goes awry when a prize show dog goes missing and Santa turns up dead. The dog's owner is one of the school's most perfectly pedigreed alums, and she enlists Melanie to help find the purloined pooch. But just as Melanie starts pawing at the truth, she digs up a sleighful of sinister secrets that leaves everyone feeling less than merry . . ."A whodunit sure to please dog-loving cozy readers." —Publishers Weekly

Summary
"If you like dogs, you'll love Laurien Berenson's Melanie Travis mysteries!" --Joanne Fluke, New York Times bestselling authorEver wonder what Melanie and Aunt Peg were up to before solving murders? Let's step back in time, when college-aged Melanie and her indomitable Aunt Peg were little more than strangers... It's Christmas in Connecticut, and Peg Turnbull can't wait to spend her favorite holiday cozying up to husband Max and their clan of pedigree Poodles in Greenwich. But Peg's spirits drop when the family of Max's estranged brother Michael invites the pair over for Christmas dinner. Could her in-laws want to settle the long-standing feud over Nana's will? Peg isn't expecting any miracles, but it's been ages since Peg last saw her niece and nephew. Little Melanie must be out of pigtails by now... When they arrive at the Turnbull's, Peg is not just surprised by how much Melanie has grown up. The family has spared no expense in preparing for the festivities--unusual, considering Michael blew his inheritance after years of financial troubles. Peg suspects there's an awful secret tucked beneath her brother-in-law's ostentatious good cheer, and she's determined to get to the bottom of it. Once she does, someone's ending up in the doghouse...

Summary
Between her boisterous sons and a house full of Poodles, there's never a dull moment for Melanie Travis. But no matter how hectic life gets, she can always pick up the scent of a howling good mystery--and she'll stop at nothing to dig up the truth. . .It's summer in Connecticut, and Melanie's life has become an endless string of dog shows, soccer camp, and the antics of her energetic toddler. She hardly has time to pay much attention to her Aunt Peg's new protégé, Nick Walden, a self-proclaimed "dog whisperer" with an uncanny gift for decoding dog-speak. The well-heeled dog owners of Fairfield County are lapping up his alleged talents, anxious to discover exactly what their pampered pets are thinking--that is until the pooches start spilling their secrets. When Nick is discovered dead in his home, his sister Claire enlists Melanie to help track down the killer. Now, as she juggles the demands of marriage and motherhood--not to mention her six beloved Poodles--Melanie can scarcely even begin to nose through the growing list of suspects. But just when she thinks she's barking up the wrong tree, she'll find herself face to face with a purebred murderer. . .
