Lost & Found (Daisy Dunlop Mystery #2) by J.L. Simpson

Daisy is back and ready for her next adventure.  She's not real thrilled to be asked to solve a dognapping.  She's afraid of dogs.  But they don't have any cases and money is money, so why not?  There are good reasons why not but she doesn't find out about them until she's deep in the case...

The author shared a copy of this book with me for review (thank you).  It has been published and you can grab a copy now on Amazon.

Nothing is as simple as it looks.  Daisy heads out to visit other dog breeders and to see what gossip she can pick up and who might have stolen the dog.  While she's on her mission, Solomon gets a call that his ex-wife is in jail and he needs to come after the little girl.  He has no idea at the time that would lead him into even more trouble.  After all, he didn't expect to find a dead nude body in his ex-wife's bed!  He and the police are both looking into the murder.

It gets even more exciting when the two cases merge together.  Between trying to find a nanny for the little girl, trying to keep Daisy out of trouble, and running into an old friend/enemy Solomon is pretty busy.  Daisy has troubles of her own.  She and Solomon find her client dead.  The poodle is still missing.  And the crime is big and deadly.

She and Solomon and almost don't survive this encounter.  They are just getting around to being friends, too.  Of course, Solomon has two women after him at the time, so he's not lacking attention.

This one was even more ambitious than the first case and the author made me laugh again.  Daisy fumbles more than she catches the ball but she's not dumb.  She gets by where others might fail.  This is a fun series to read.
