One Flew Over the Chow-Chow’s Nest, Book #11

The world moves toward normal, but Marcia’s life is rarely “normal”…

When newly vaccinated Marcia Banks calls to finally schedule the human phase of training with her Air Force pilot client—the soon-to-be owner of a Chow-Husky service dog named Bear—she’s informed that the veteran has been in a private psychiatric hospital for months, with no one allowed to visit due to Covid.

Through her neighbor’s daughter, Sybil—a traveling nurse who has worked at the hospital—Marcia receives a message from the pilot implying he’s being held against his will. Should she believe him, or is he being paranoid?

Then suddenly he’s discharged, only to have his private plane crash in a fiery ball two days later. Convinced the crash is no coincidence, Marcia attempts to discover how her veteran client became the target of a murderer.

What she uncovers looks suspiciously like a scheme to defraud the Veterans’ Administration. But who is behind it…and did they sabotage her client’s plane? Or did the saboteur have a more personal motive?

And just how determined are they to silence Marcia and Sybil?

ONLY $2.99 for a few more days! Then it goes up to $4.99

Lord of the Fleas, A Marcia Banks and Buddy Mystery, #9

What could be more innocent than a country flea market?

When service dog trainer Marcia Banks takes up temporary residence with her best friend in Williston, Florida, her goals are simple: spoil her toddler godchildren and train her newest dog’s veteran owner, a vendor at a local flea market.

Ha, the universe has other plans. When the owner of the flea market is found dead and her client is a prime suspect, she discovers that nothing is as it seems—from the flea market owner himself, to the ornate dragonhead cane he gave to her client, to the beautiful but not very bright young woman whom her client has a crush on.

The only true innocent in the bunch seems to be her guileless client. But when he shares a confidence that puts her in a double bind with local law enforcement, she’s not sure she can even trust him.

Despite her promises to her new husband that she won’t “poke around” in the investigation, the only way out of her no-win dilemma seems to be to find the real killer herself.

The flea market, however, is hiding more secrets, and at least one of them could be deadly.

Available at these retailers ~ $2.99 through May 30th, goes up to $4.99 after that…
