Their wait is over. The newest book in the series that has been praised as "hilarious" (Los Angeles Times) and "a real tail-wagger" (The Washington Post), The Wicked Flea finds dog walkers and joggers battling for territory in the local park-and Holly Winter caught up in a struggle with a poorly-trained canine and some barely-civilized humans.

Baker & Taylor
A battle between dog walkers and joggers over territory in the local park ignites a series of increasingly violent confrontations, as amateur sleuth Holly Winter becomes caught in the middle of the vicious struggle.

Blackwell North Amer
Holly Winter's Alaskan malamutes, Rowdy and Kimi, are as sweetly rambunctious as ever, and her cookbook-in-progress - tentatively titled A Hundred and One Ways to Cook Liver - is really coming along. But everything else is a mess. A recent concussion has robbed her of much-needed sleep - and a failed relationship has left her with a bitter, broken heart. And her incredibly overpriced therapy sessions with the improbably named Dr. Vee Foote aren't helping one tiny bit.
It's not long before her friend Ceci stumbles on a seemingly perfect solution - and takes Holly to a park that's literally running over with gorgeous dogs. But the sight of so many leash-less canines makes Holly uneasy - especially after an aggressive golden retriever attacks her beloved Rowdy. And when one of the owners is found murdered, Holly has no choice but to step into the fray - for she knows better than anyone that killers are a cunning, clever breed.
