"Beware! Pick up Once Bitten and it will sink its fangs into your imagination. You'll read straight through to the end." --Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown

"An entertaining mystery."--Publishers Weekly

With her former fiancé off finding himself, Melanie Travis figures the only ring she'll be seeing is one where she's showing her prized poodles. Meanwhile, her brother Frank is about to tie the knot with his sweetheart, Bertie Kennedy. But when Sara Bentley, a dog handler moonlighting as a wedding planner, suddenly vanishes, a panicked Bertie gives Melanie a choice: either pinch-hit for Sara--or find her.

"Totally satisfying."--I Love A Mystery

Opting for the latter, Melanie unearths big trouble when Sara's cottage burns to the ground and a woman's body is found in the rubble. Plenty of people held grudges against Sara, including a disgruntled groomer, a past dog show competitor, and an embittered ex-boyfriend. Even Sara's own family seems oddly unconcerned about her. Are the blue-blooded Bentleys cold-blooded enough to kill one of their own? The only thing that's certain is that it's up to Melanie to stop a murderer in his--or her--tracks. . .
