A Novel Proceeds at Rattling Speed
“Fashion Goes to the Dogs is a novel that proceeds at a rattling speed and has something for everyone – dogs/knitters/fashionistas/love/crime/NY city/international plotting/royalty/shamrock pride – am hoping that green eyed Harry appears in the next book and Dillon gets a book of his own!” Frances Gilbert, author.
Could Not Put Book Down – 5 stars
“Peggy’s description of the dog show scene is perfect and twisting a plot into the NY show was artful. Love introduced, politely and with good manners, leaving the reader hopeful the relationship continues in the next book. Where does Dillon go now that he is a champion dog? Ah, wait, wait…there will be more books.” Sandra M. McDonald
Can’t wait for the next in the series! 5 stars
“This book is a pure delight! … Peggy writes a good action story, gives great insight into the dog show world, and develops a lovely love story, all around a very strong woman with classic self doubts. What a nice, nice read!” Susan H.
An enjoyable story. 5 stars
“I like dog books, detective stories, mysteries, and just about anything written well. This one had all of that. Although I haven’t met the author personally I know her by reputation in the dog world, so I wanted to see what she had done. Within a few chapters it drew me in. I wanted to know what was going to happen, and found I was beginning to like the characters, which is a big deal to me. Even the names she used were easy to read. Her character development is better than you expect from a first time novelist, and the plot is well thought out with surprises in the right places. I was trying to ration the book and read just a few chapters at a time, but when I started reading today I decided to ignore the world until I finished. It’s that good. I haven’t enjoyed a book as much as this in ages.” Ron Manor.

Double Blind (Kendra Michaels)
The #1 New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award winning authors are back with an electrifying new novel that will leave your heart racing.
Kendra Michaels is reluctant to help the FBI with the most recent case they’ve brought to her…until she hears the details: The body was found just blocks away from Kendra’s condo. The man was carrying an envelope with Kendra’s name on it, and inside was an SD card with what appears to be an innocuous video of a wedding reception. And just one week before the attempted delivery of this mysterious video, the groom in the video was murdered.
As the body count rises, Kendra joins forces with private investigator Jessie Mercado and agent-for-hire Adam Lynch as they discover that each victim played a part in convicting a serial killer years before. Someone has clearly taken up his mantle to exact a sadistic form of vengeance. But who is it? A family member? An old partner? Or is it possible that the wrong man was convicted and the serial killer himself has returned to continue his sick spree?
In Double Blind, Iris and Roy Johansen deliver an emotional, gripping new entry in the bestselling Kendra Michaels series.

The Girl I Used to Know: A heart-wrenching and heartwarming story of two strangers and one house
A beautiful, emotive and spell-binding story of two women who find friendship and second chances when they least expect it. Perfect for the fans of Patricia Scanlan.
Amanda King and Tess Cuffe are strangers who share the same Georgian house, but their lives couldn’t be more different.
Amanda seems to have it all, absolute perfection. She projects all the accoutrements of a lady who lunches. Sadly, the reality is a soulless home, an unfaithful husband and a very lonely heart.
By comparison, in the basement flat, unwanted tenant Tess has spent a lifetime hiding and shutting her heart to love.
It takes a bossy doctor, a handsome gardener, a pushy teenager and an abandoned cat to show these two women that sometimes letting go is the first step to moving forward and new friendships can come from the most unlikely situations.
