USA Today bestselling author Connie Shelton brings the third installment in her popular pet-sleuthing mystery series. Charlie Parker returns from her Hawaiian vacation to find her older brother Ron involved with a much younger woman. The more Charlie sees of cute Vicky, the more she realizes how deceitful Ron's new love is. Is it simply a case of male mid-life crisis, or is there something more devious going on?
Meanwhile, Charlie doesn't have much time to ponder Ron's problems. Her friend Sharon Ortega is a partner in a restaurant business with David Ruiz. When David turns up dead, an apparent suicide, Sharon comes to Charlie for help. Sharon's problem is a double-edged sword. If he did kill himself, David's life insurance won't pay and Sharon will probably lose the restaurant because she can't afford to hire a replacement. But if he didn't kill himself, then it was murder, and Sharon could very well find herself a suspect.
Charlie and her sidekick dog, Rusty, partner up to work on the case, a move that ultimately puts them both in danger.
