Cozy fans will savor this charming paranormal mystery series opener from romance author McCoy (Wanted: One Perfect Man). Recently divorced Ellie Engleman, ready for a fresh start, adopts a Yorkie and discovers she can telepathically communicate with dogs. Naturally, she launches a dog-walking business on Manhattan's posh Upper East Side. On the way to walk prize-winning Bichon Buddy, Ellie discovers the body of his owner, Professor Albright, murdered in his entryway. Buddy is missing and no one, save Ellie, is concerned. Sexy, annoying NYPD Det. Sam Ryder considers Ellie a prime suspect, but that doesn't stop her from searching for Buddy, hoping that finding the dog will lead her to the killer. Somehow managing to avoid every talking animal mystery cliche, McCoy fills this delightful story with humor, quirky characters and delicious hints of romance.

Good series. The premise is a bit cute (dog walker that can talk to dogs) but the writing/pacing/plotting stands up.

I’m not sure how I feel about this series yet. This is the first book, and I know those can be a little rocky until the author hits her stride. None of the characters really grabbed me, but I’m willing to give the series a second shot.

so far very cute, seems typical of how most female mystery books as far as the plot goes. But thats perfectly okay.
considering dog walking myself...its something I find relate-ably fun.
