Of Birds and Beagles: Allie Babcock Mystery Book 5

O'Kane Ink

New in 2015, book 5 in the dog therapist Allie Babcock mystery series!

Dog therapist Allie Babcock is excited to give a presentation at the Pets! Pets! Pets! Expo in Denver. With the bring-your-own-pets policy of the expo, Allie's dog-phobic boyfriend is hyperventilating as soon as they enter the building. When he runs into his gorgeous-but-crazy ex-girlfriend and her parrot, Magoo, sparks are flying in all the wrong directions. Before Allie can take the stage, Magoo nips the ear of an adorable dog--Beagle Bailey--who belongs to Allie's friend Tracy, a local radio-talk-show celebrity. Havoc reigns, and Tracy drags the dog-friendly community of Boulder into the fray by broadcasting her version of the bird-versus-beagle altercation.

One thing leads to another until Allie is enmeshed in two love triangles, as well as one hate triangle. With her own love life in dire straits, Allie takes solace in playing cupid for her mother and Frank, a charming neighborhood volunteer fix-it man. Little does she know that Frank's work repairing the wires in an elderly client's home that squirrels have gnawed through will lead Allie to find a dead body...and Frank to be named as a suspect.

Full of humor and poignancy as well as dog-behavior tips, only one thing is certain: OF BIRDS AND BEAGLE is sure to delight its readers.

About the author

Leslie O'Kane is the author of 20 mysteries. She began writing when her son was one year old and she realized if she didn't shut down her technical writing business, she would never realize her dream of writing fiction for a living. She gave herself six years to accomplish the feat and got her first contract two months shy of her deadline. She considers the time she was taken hostage in a robbery to be the beginning of her life in crime. Leslie is author of three mystery series: the Molly Masters Mysteries, featuring Leslie's alter ego: a mother of two cartoonist who creates eCards; the Allie Babcock Mysteries about a dog therapist; and the Domestic Bliss Mysteries, featuring interior designers Erin Gilbert and Steve Sullivan. She is currently working on the second book in a new thriller trilogy. THE BODY SHIFTERS is about a brilliant college freshman who is murdered and awakens hundreds of miles from her home, in the body of a hospitalized coma patient.
