Cameron Cripps-Hayman is taken aback when she stumbles upon another murdered neighbor, this time behind her sister's shop, Dog Diggity. The timing couldn't be worse, as there's only a week left before the store's grand opening during Canal Days, the biggest festival of the year.When the police arrest her handyman, Cameron knows they've got the wrong suspect, so the Metamora Action Agency sets their sights on cracking the case. With one solved murder under their belts, how hard could a second be?With a flood warning and a murderer on the loose threatening the start of Canal Days, can Cameron and her crew save the town's annual dog and pony show from being canceled?
For someone considered an "outsider" not long ago, Cameron and her sister are quite involved in community events. Opening a new business is keeping Monica occupied, including hours spent baking. Cam is organizing a popular festival with the help of a few eccentric volunteers. When her mother arrives in town and joins forces with her ever disapproving mother inlaw, Cam's life becomes fuller and more complicated. As if being present at the discovery of a murderer man isn't complicated enough. Cam tries to be a people pleaser. She feels great responsibility for those around her.
While trying to solve the murder and help Monica open her new store, plus juggle all the festival tasks, Cameron is also responsible for an unruly pack of dogs, inherited from the last murder she stumbled upon and a teen step daughter, even though Can isn't presently living with her husband. And you thought your life was busy!
Action packed and full speed ahead, full of wonderful characters and unexpected events.
