The Description

A Veronica Kildare K-9 Mystery: Book 2
Publication Date: April 25, 2024

Veronica possesses a natural affinity for training dogs—and a passion for locating missing people. As “Lawyers, Dogs, and Money” unfolds, Veronica trains peanut allergy alert and prison contraband sniffing dogs—and joins her search and rescue colleague, a Deputy Sheriff for Boulder County, in trying to ascertain the source of threats against Kadri Ilves, a co-worker of Sgt. Donovan’s daughter at a high-end import/export business. The woman being targeted is a native of Estonia and has a long history of advocating for social justice causes. As efforts to harm Kadri escalate in an alarming fashion, Veronica’s team and Sgt. Donovan desperately attempt to pinpoint the person behind the threats. Veronica’s father assists the investigation by researching Kadri’s background, including her work to end racial disparity in prison sentencing, and legal claims she has filed relative to disputed lands in Estonia. Has Kadri put herself in the crosshairs of the California branch of the Russian Mafia? Can Veronica and her canine partner, Leda, save Kadri before events turn deadly?

The Review

Veronica Kildare and her K-9 companions provide rescue services, along with a recent initiative to sniff out peanuts and give an alert for allergy sufferers.

Author Tracy Carter delivers the second installment in the series, Veronica Kildare K-9 Mystery, with Lawyers, Dogs, and Money. Veronica and her dog, Leda, take center stage as they help investigate who is threatening Kadri, who is originally from Estonia.

Veronica and her friends team up to determine where the threats are coming from and whether they are tied to her home country. In the process, they dig deeper into the import/export company where Kadri works. A break in the investigation leads to the solution, but not before Veronica is attacked.

The story is full of examples of how effective the dogs are in fighting crime, especially when it comes to drugs. Veronica is a strong character with a great sense of compassion.

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
