Lilly Echosby and her toy poodle Aggie find a fresh start in Chattanooga, Tennessee, spoiled by the scent of murder . . .
Having solved the shooting death of her cheating husband, Lilly's left behind the drama of Lighthouse Dunes, Indiana, to start over in the hometown of her best friend, Scarlett "Dixie" Jefferson. As she gets settled in her new rented house, Lilly gives Aggie, short for Agatha Christie, her own fresh start by enrolling her in the Eastern Tennessee Dog Club, where Dixie is a trainer.
But drama seems to hound Lilly like a persistent stray. Her cranky new neighbor appears unfamiliar with Southern hospitality and complains that Aggie barks too much and digs up his prized tulips. But what the poodle actually unearths is the buried body of a mysterious man who claimed ownership of the lost golden retriever Lilly recently rescued. Now it's up to Lilly and Dixie to try to muzzle another murderer . . .

 Melanie Travis - watch out! There is a new poodle in town with an owner who attracts trouble and can sniff out clues.
Lilly Echosby may be a bit on the more experienced (read that as mature) side, but that doesn't mean she is slow or unobservant. She is starting over, with a new job and new friends while taking her poodle Aggie to obedience classes. 
While spending time together, this pair stumble over a dead body and Lilly has another mystery to solve. Fortunately, Lilly's daughter is also in town and has a friend who is a K-9 handler. Lilly also finds supportive friends at her new job. The characters Ms. Burns introduces to us are wonderful. I also appreciated the canine insights and tips.
This book offers something for everyone - mystery, danger, romance, and friendship escapades.
