    This is one of my favorite cozy mystery series that combine loving relationships of family, friends, and pets and almost ideal life of a former single mother who is happily married with two healthy children. At least for the last several books, the author has used a predictable, enjoya...

    I received an arc via Netgalley and this is my unbiased review. What a great little mystery. Well written with a good plot. I have not read any of the previous books but being a mystery and dog lover I certainly will be reading them. I recommend to fans of mysterys. ...

    Murder, mayhem, fun, and adventure rule the pages of this wonderful book. Melanie, as usual, figures out who the killer(s) is!!! Davey shows Augie at three dog shows and 3 year old Kevin gets his own non-Poodle dog. This was a fun and entertaining book. ...

    She is just a delightful author. Since I go to many dog shows, she helps explains the various groups of groups etc. Her stories are always well planned and thought out and there are always twists and turns. This is a must read for fans of Berenson and a wonderful book if you haven...

    I used to really like the Melanie Travis series, but the last three books have been full of irritating, unlikable characters (even the people we're supposed to like have seemed a bit snippy) and Melanie (the narrator) seems to be growing more jaded and grouchy in each one. Furthermore,...

    This is the second Melanie Travis book I have read, and I enjoyed it as much as the first one. This time, we find Melanie helping out at a local puppy fest, the annual ?baby? of Leo Brody, a wealthy philanthropist. During the day-long event, Leo dies from eating a cookie made with ...

    Normally I hate anything dealing with the breeding of domesticated animals for profit. I have even thought that people go into breeding dogs/cats/rabbits just for profit with no care for what happens afterwards. After reading the Melanie Travis series my thoughts on that has changed. I...

    I was initially reluctant to start this series since I knew it was about dog shows and I know nothing about dog shows nor have I ever owned a dog. All of that has changed now that I have read the 20 books in this series. Well, not ALL of it ... I still don't own a dog. But I feel like ...

    Murder At the Puppy Fest Laurien Berenson has hit another one out of the park,or should I say out of the show ring. Melanie Travis,is drafted by her ex's new wife,to help out the puppy fest,that's sponsored by Leo Brody. One of the richest people in town. When Leo does not show ...

    This is the newest in the series. Melanie Travis is asked to help out at Puppy Fest which is a big fundraiser for Puppy Posse, an organization that helps puppies get adopted to good homes. Puppy Fest is like the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. It is founded by Leo Brody. He is well off an...

    This is an entertaining murder mystery with an uncomplicated plot and an over-abundance of suspects. It was a memory test for me to remember who is who. The series's story-line about Melanie Travis, her extended family and dogs is the foundation for the book. For dog lovers there's in...

    This is an entertaining murder mystery with an uncomplicated plot and an over-abundance of suspects. It was a memory test for me to remember who is who. The series's story-line about Melanie Travis, her extended family and dogs is the foundation for the book. For dog lovers there's in...

    Another great book in the Melanie Travis series. Melanie agrees to help out with the Puppy Fest, based on the Puppy Bowl, and finds the host of the event dead. The police chalk the death up to an accident, but the deceased's daughter believes it was murder. The family is not very helpf...
