Final Entry
By Karen Harbert

Jennifer Brooks normally leads a quiet life.  A Mental Health Administrator during the week, a breeder and exhibitor of champion Cardigan Welsh Corgis on her own time, and member of the board of directors of her national club.  Her quiet life is turned upside-down when the club treasurer dies in an accident and the husband asks Jen to take charge of their dogs and his wife’s records.  She turns the treasury records over to another board member, but someone wants something else.  First the treasurer’s house is burgled, then Jen’s.  There’s an attempted break-in at her office, followed by a series of disturbing phone calls. 

Suddenly, the treasurer’s death is being investigated as murder.  The husband is a suspect, then suspicion falls on Jen herself.  The treasurer’s handbag is found and holds a clue but the police aren’t interested.   Jennifer’s search for answers leads her to a questionable medical clinic hundreds of miles away, but what’s the connection to the dead treasurer? 

In the midst of all this turmoil there’s romance in the air and a beautiful litter of puppies is born.  When Jen travels to see them she and the breeder discuss the murder and she remembers the piece of the puzzle still in her possession.

Will Monty, her devoted champion stud dog, hold off the bad guy long enough for Jennifer to solve it?

Through all this a fanatical widow keeps turning up like a bad penny with her disturbed child who can’t be trusted around the dogs.

Meanwhile, there’s dirty work afoot as Jen’s old nemesis Mona has been elevated to the national board as well as granted a license to judge.  Mona tries to pull a fast one at a board meeting that almost erupts into a brawl.

Death March
By Karen Harbert

Mental Health Administrator and Cardigan Welsh Corgi breeder Jennifer Brooks has been saddled with a litter of puppies whose ownership is in question and the sire unknown.  She turns for help to elderly friend Maud whose teenage great-niece wants to become a successful show dog handler.

Jen and boyfriend Kent are going from southern California all the way to Oregon for a dog show circuit that people are calling “The Oregon Death March.”  Jen hopes to win Best In Show with her champion stud dog Monty.  Maud and great-niece Sabrina are going on the same circuit.  The name supposedly refers to the awful weather on the circuit, but things start happening….

Maud seems to be getting more and more confused.  In the midst of the circuit Kent has to fly back to Chicago on business, leaving Jen with all the dogs and a rented motor home that breaks down at a dilapidated country store straight out of a Hitchcock movie.  Maud disappears. 

Jen, friend Sharon and Sabrina turn to new-found friend Inspector Alexander MacLeod of the RCMP who happens to also be on the show circuit with a very funny-looking dog.  When Kent returns to the circuit they all put their heads together to figure out the strange happenings on The Oregon Death March.  Sabrina and the Junior Handlers think they’ve figured it out, which puts them in danger.  Then Jen herself is in danger and once again it’s Monty to the rescue.
