Murder Strikes a Pose by Tracy Weber
Yoga instructor Kate Davidson tries to live up to yoga's Zen-like expectations, but it's not easy while struggling to keep her small business afloat or dodging her best friend's matchmaking efforts.
When George, a homeless alcoholic, and his loud, horse-sized German shepherd, Bella, start hawking newspapers outside her studio, Kate attempts to convince them to leave. Instead, the three strike up an unlikely friendship.
Then Kate finds George's dead body. The police dismiss it as a drug-related street crime, but Kate knows he was no drug dealer. Now she must solve George's murder and find someone willing to adopt his intimidating companion before Bella is sent to the big dog park in the sky. With the murderer on her trail, Kate has to work fast or her next Corpse Pose may be for real.
This is a great cozy mystery. It's summer release is perfect for anyone who needs a good book to take with them. The main character is witty, smart,and likeable....someone you could easily hang out with. While I would prefer not to do yoga, I would love to to hang out with Bella. While taking time to provide a wonderful description of the location, the author keeps the story at a nice pace and leaves you anticipating the next book in the series. Tracy Weber has the beginnings of a promising series.
