Deadly Dog Days
New to the historic town of Metamora, Indiana, Cameron Cripps-Hayman is looking to make friends with her neighbors. What she isn’t looking for is one of their bodies floating in the canal.
When she and her estranged husband, the town sheriff, are both suspected of murder, Cameron takes crime solving into her own hands, teaming up with her eccentric group of volunteers who dub themselves The Metamora Action Agency.
As if hunting for a murderer with two high school geniuses, the town drunk, and an elderly kleptomaniac isn’t hard enough, Cameron adopts the five mangy guard dogs of her deceased neighbor. But maybe a stint at playing gatekeeper is just what she needs to come face-to-face with the killer and save another neighbor from being the next victim.

Book Review by Bree Herron
Could you imagine just minding your own business when all of a sudden you see a hand, floating in the water? And to make matters worse the person that needs to know is your soon to be ex-husband, the sheriff. Poor Cameron, her day isn’t off to a good start.
All this gal wants is to make new friends not see new murder victims. And she certainly doesn’t want to be the suspect in the investigation. I shook my head and laughed at many spots in this book at Cameron’s expense. She makes the book enjoyable. She handles her roaming dog of a husband with the same character any woman would. Maybe she is a bit more mature about it. Cameron is also the animal lover after my own heart. She takes in the dogs, of the victim. I thought this was such a wonderful move. Granted, the police see any move she makes as a reason she did the victim in. You only have to read this book to know Cameron is far from a killer.
If you are looking for a mystery that has the laughs, the silly moments and of course some lovable dogs. Look no further than Deadly Dog Days. This book won’t disappoint the reader, the mystery is well done, the characters are thought out and the ending is perfect!
