Review: Fifty Shades of Greyhound by: Sparkle Abbey


Title: Fifty Shades of Greyhound
Author: Sparkle Abbey

Pages: 195

Description:

It was a killer party. 

Caro Lamont, Laguna Beach's favorite pet therapist, is thrilled to support the elite fundraising gala for Greys Matter, a SoCal greyhound rescue group. All the guests in the couture-attired crowd are clad in varying shades of grey, the champagne and donations are flowing, and there are fifty gorgeous greyhounds in attendance. But before the evening ends, a stranger in their midst is dead. 

Caro sets out to help the rescue group find the identity of the mystery guest but soon finds herself in the doghouse with homicide detective, Judd Malone--oh, and federal agent, John Milner. When there's a second death, Caro is convinced she's on the track of someone who wants a secret to stay buried, but it's a race to see whether Caro can uncover the truth before the killer decides she's next.

My Thoughts:

At a local gala all about Greyhounds someone ends up meeting a demise,  falling into Caro Lamont who wants to know when she can get her broach back and she ends trying to figure out who killed the stranger to the gala.  Also after being approached by Blanche the women she worked with at the gala she is sent to check on the other greyhounds that witnessed the murder to see how the animals present at the gala are dealing with the trauma.

The bigger question is who released a bunny into a gala?  And who is the mysterious man who winds up dead?  This book was full of mystery and adventure and had me wanting to read the previous books in the series.  I loved the theme with a pet therapist gave you ideas of what can ail some dogs.  And how dog parents can sometimes push their anxieties on to their animals!
