I take my three rescues to the dog park every day. It’s become the center of my social life. I’ve made terrific friends there, many of whom I have little in common with except for devotion to our dogs. The thing I like about meeting people at the park, you can see the love in them, and that makes it easier to look past our differences.
The adventures I create are my gift to the people who have given me so much over the years.

“Carol Ann Newsome is up there with the best story-tellers out there today.”
“I absolutely LOVE this book. The first book was just as good. I read
both of them in 2 days! . . . You will not be able to
put down your ereader!”

It’s not like she’s going to do anything dangerous . . .
When Detective Peter Dourson arrests a nice stranger for the brutal murder of a dog park regular, he begs his girlfriend, artist Lia Anderson, to stay out of it. But her best patron takes the woman under her wing, and Renee insists her new friend needs help. Lia isn’t going to do much, just ask a few questions. Surely that won’t lead to trouble.
Besides, she’s got an escape-artist foster dog to deal with. Not to mention Peter’s desire for a commitment she’s not ready to make.
Lia’s dog park friends refuse to be left out in this romp of a mystery laced with humor, dogs, and love.

“I chose 5 stars because I couldn’t put the book down. I have read all of Lia Anderson Dog Park Mysteries. I am so hooked on them that I can not stop reading the book until I get to the end. C.A. Newsome’s books come to life while reading them. I started out on Book 1 of the Dog Park Mysteries and within 3 days I had read all the books she has written of the Dog Park Mysteries.”
