Yoga instructor Kate Davidson’s life takes a chaotic turn once she agrees to not only be the doula for her pregnant best friend, but also play foster mother to two puppies. The chaos only gets worse when Kate finds the dead body of a philandering fertility doctor and Rachel, one of her yoga students, fleeing the scene. 

Kate is convinced her student is innocent, and she sets out to find the real killer before her testimony condemns Rachel to a life behind bars. But her hands are full with caring for three dogs, teaching yoga classes, and gaining an unexpected crime-solving partner. If she’s not careful, Kate’s next yoga pose may be a fatal one.

My Thoughts:

This book follows Kate Davidson who has been helping out as Doula for her best friend Rene whose having twins.  Kate also ends up with her boyfriend Michael acquiring two puppies and helping them figure out what to do as they are malnutritioned and needing shots.  During Doula duty Kate witnesses a scene between Dr. Richard Jones also called Dr. Dick and a women who Kate knows isn't Dr. Dick's wife.  Not long after that Dr. Dick winds up dead and all clues lead to his wife Rachel.  Kate knows she didn't kill Dr. Dick but is she covering for someone who did?  Dr. Dick has many alteractions with people while he was alive.  He was subject to a lawsuit by a former lover of his, add that to not getting along with his stepdaughter and the questions really rise who killed the Dr. and why?

I loved this book going on the adventure with Kate, Michael and everyone else as Kate tries to figure out who killed the Dr. just so she can clear her friend Rachel.  Will Kate figure it out in time and who mistreated the puppies Michael brought home?  As we travel through the story we learn more about lengths Kate will go through to help her friends and learn what she can about Dr. Dick.  Definitely a great series for those who love yoga, babies, and puppies.  I found myself unable to put this book down and don't think you will either!
