A stray dog leads bookseller Penelope McClure and her gumshoe ghost on a chase for a cunning criminal in this brand-new entry in the "UTTERLY CHARMING" (Mystery Scene) Haunted Bookshop Mysteries from New York Times bestselling author Cleo Coyle. 

Pet Mystery Week brings brisk business to Penelope's Rhode Island bookshop, but a real mystery comes barking at her door when a lost dog turns up in a panic. Pen and her son Spencer follow the furry fugitive to a wooded area where the dog's owner lies unconscious. Mrs. Cunningham is a warm-hearted widow who volunteers at the animal shelter and runs Buy the Book's pet lovers book club. Why would anyone shoot such a sweet soul? 

The police believe it's an accident, a shot by a careless deer hunter, but Pen remains skeptical. To straighten out this doggone mess, she whistles for the ghost of PI Jack Shepard, an expert in hounding as well as haunting. Jack has a dog story of his own, a case from the 1940s that may help Pen sniff out clues to her present predicament. Yet even with Jack's hard-boiled help, Pen may not be able to stop the killer from striking again or letting this whole case go to the dogs...

  1. Sounds like a book I will enjoy.

    1. I hope you get a chance to do just that, Rita. Good luck in the drawing!

  2. Greetings, Amber ~ Thank you for this sweet spotlight on The Ghost Goes to the Dogs. This is the 9th entry in our Haunted Bookshop Mystery series, and Marc and I think it may be our most entertaining entry in the series to date. It’s also the most endearing with two dog stories (one in the past and one in the present). The book is full of good humor, twisty plot turns, and lots of heart. Of course, our irresistible ghost (PI Jack Shepard) is as much fun as ever.

    Wishing you and everyone happy reading and high spirits!

    ~ Cleo
