E-BOOK EXCERPT

Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter usually tries to avoid taking on new cases at all costs. But this time, he’s happy—eager, even—to take the case that’s just come his way. Andy’s long-time friend Martha “Pups” Boyer takes in stray puppies that the local dog rescue center can’t handle, raises them until they’re old enough to adopt, and then finds good homes for them. Not everyone admires the work Pups does as much as Andy does, however. With Christmas just around the corner, one of Pups’s neighbors has just reported Pups to the city for having more than the legal number of pets in her home under the local zoning laws. Andy happily takes Pups’s case, and he feels confident in a positive outcome. Who could punish someone for rescuing puppies, after all, especially at Christmastime? But things get a lot more complicated when Randy Hennessey, the neighbor who registered the complaint against Pups, turns up dead. Pups had loudly and publicly threatened Hennessey after he filed his complaint, and Pups was also the one to find his body. All the evidence seems to point to Pups as the killer, and suddenly Andy has a murder case on his hands. He doesn’t believe Pups could be guilty, but as he starts digging deeper into the truth behind Hennessey’s murder, Andy may find himself facing a killer more dangerous than he ever imagined. With his trademark wit, larger-than-life characters, and clever plotting, David Rosenfelt delivers another gripping mystery.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

A delightful holiday romance about a small-town single dad and an animal rescue owner as they try to find forever homes for a dozen lovable pups before Christmas. Ally Gilmore may have had a slightly unrealistic idea of what it would be like to move to idyllic Pine Hollow to run the local animal shelter. Small-town Vermont, adorable dogs, and the chance to be closer to her grandparents sounded like the perfect recipe for the fresh start she needs -- but she's barely settled in when she learns the shelter is losing its funding and she has only four weeks to find forever homes for all the dogs. When Ally tries to dispute the town council's decision, she finds her nemesis is a lot younger, a lot more handsome, and a lot more reasonable than she expected. Ben Hait knows he can come across as a bit of a Scrooge, but he's got too much on his plate to worry about cultivating a warm and cuddly reputation. He's barely keeping his head above water as the sole guardian of his ten-year-old niece, and he genuinely can't handle one more thing -- like the dog little Astrid keeps begging him to get. But he does feel guilty about Ally's situation and agrees to use his connections in the town to help her find homes for the shelter animals. What starts as an uneasy alliance evolves into a friendship as Ben and Ally navigate Pine Hollow's holiday events, bringing adorable pups with "adopt me" ribbons to the Christmas parade and tree-lighting ceremonies. And soon the town matchmakers are hard at work to convince the pair that their chemistry isn't just the magic of mistletoe but the love of a lifetime.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Defense lawyer Andy Carpenter spends as much time as he can working on his true passion, the Tara Foundation, the dog rescue organization he runs. Lately, Andy has been especially involved in a county prison program where inmates help train dogs the Tara Foundation has rescued to make them more adoptable, benefiting both the dogs and the prisoners. One of the prisoners Andy has been working with is Brian Atkins, who has 18 months left on a 5-year term for fraud. Brian has been helping to train Boomer, an adorable fox terrier the Tara Foundation rescued from a neglectful owner. Brian and Boomer are clearly a terrific match. In fact, Andy hopes that Brian will adopt Boomer himself, once his sentence is up. But one day, Andy arrives at the prison to discover that Brian has used Boomer to make an ingenious escape, and man and dog are both in the wind. The next day, the man on whose testimony Brian was convicted is found murdered. Brian is caught and arrested for the crime, though he forcefully protests his innocence. Suddenly, Andy finds himself with a new client in Brian and a new dog in Boomer. And as he starts to dig deeper into the murder and the events leading up to it, Andy realizes he might be putting them all in far more danger than anyone had realized.
