The Puppy Who Knew Too Much by V.M. Burns-Great Escapes Tour-Review

About the book 
Lilly Echosby and her toy poodle Aggie find a fresh start in Chattanooga, Tennessee, spoiled by the scent of murder . . .
Having solved the shooting death of her cheating husband, Lilly’s left behind the drama of Lighthouse Dunes, Indiana, to start over in the hometown of her best friend, Scarlett “Dixie” Jefferson. As she gets settled in her new rented house, Lilly gives Aggie, short for Agatha Christie, her own fresh start by enrolling her in the Eastern Tennessee Dog Club, where Dixie is a trainer.
But drama seems to hound Lilly like a persistent stray. Her cranky new neighbor appears unfamiliar with Southern hospitality and complains that Aggie barks too much and digs up his prized tulips. But what the poodle actually unearths is the buried body of a mysterious man who claimed ownership of the lost golden retriever Lilly recently rescued. Now it’s up to Lilly and Dixie to try to muzzle another murderer . . .
And others are saying 
The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and made the setting so inviting that I want to go to Chattanooga, Tennessee, for a visit. I would love to spend a week with Lilly and Dixie.
~MJB Reviewers
The sleuth was believable, the mystery was so awesome, and I am glad that the sleuth’s love interest is in law enforcement.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
This book is just too adorable for words!!! . . . Full of humor, mystery, and cuteness to create a book you just cannot stop reading.
~Books a Plenty Book Reviews
In THE PUPPY WHO KNEW TOO MUCH, V.M. Burns has penned an entertaining whodunit that will leave readers begging for more.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
The story is well plotted and executed with strong and sassy leading female characters, twists and turns, a few suspects but no clear motives . . . I highly recommend this one.
~Carla Loves To Read
I was immediately charmed by the characters . . . The author brought them all to life and I had such fun getting to know them.
And I thought
I really enjoyed this one way more than I expected.  
Honestly the cover just didn't 'Get Me' but I gave it a chance and I am glad I did.  

I loved the story/plot and all the characters.  Even though this one is book 2 I jumped right into the story.  I will be reading book 1 because I enjoyed this one so much.  

The characters drew me and didn't let go.  I enjoyed Lilly her 
'beastie' Dixie and her daughter who comes for a visit and then stays to help her mom solve the crimes. 

The dogs are great too.  After discovering the first body that ends up being the owner of the house that Lilly's rented Aggie makes friends with a dog that appears on their porch.  He's ill and not taken care of.   The drama unfolds as different people keep claiming the retriever.  

And then there is a 2nd murder so Lilly jumps into sleuthing out the answers.  

There's a little romantic sizzle that I suspect might be played out in the next one and I am looking forward to it.  

I received a complimentary copy.
