In an effort to escape tail-chasing males--namely her ex-husband Bob and
boyfriend Sam--Melanie Travis opts to track down the elusive owner of
Dox, an adorable Dachshund who's about to be put on the block at a
charity auction. But the more Melanie discovers about the pup's
background, the messier the case gets. It seems Dox is part of a
divorced couple's emotional tug-o-war. . .
As if tiptoeing
through the minefield of a broken marriage isn't nerve-wracking enough,
there's also Melanie's stalker--or stalkers--to deal with. The obvious
pair is a pesky local TV crew who figure Melanie's nose for trouble will
lead them to the next Big Story. But what's truly frightening is the
presence of someone far more sinister. Someone who's gotten into
Melanie's house at night, and stolen her wallet. Someone who's dognapped
Dox. With doggy abduction and her son's safety on her mind, Melanie's
determination grows. Soon, it looks like her life may be the next thing
up for auction. . .
