Description

When Kate Davidson gets an offer to teach yoga classes at the Elysian Springs resort, she jumps at the opportunity—even if it means enduring the wedding ceremony of the center's two caretakers. But avoiding the M-word turns out to be the least of Kate's problems when a wedding guest is found floating face-down in the resort's hot tub, shortly after a loud, public fight with Kate.

The police pick Kate as their number-one suspect, so she teams up with her boyfriend Michael, best friend Rene, and German shepherd sidekick Bella to find the real killer. They must solve the crime before the police arrest Kate, or her next gig may last a lifetime—behind bars.

Praise:

"Cozy readers will enjoy the twist-filled plot."—Publishers Weekly

"[Kate's] path to enlightenment is a fresh element in cozy mysteries. . . . An entertaining read."—Library Journal

"Weber's vegan yoga teacher is a bright, curious sleuth with a passion for dogs. A well-crafted whodunit with an intriguing mystery and a zinger of a twist at the end!"—Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author of The Domestic Diva and Paws and Claws Mysteries

"An engaging mystery full of fun and fascinating characters and unexpected twists. An intriguing read that includes yoga lessons and feisty dogs."—Linda O. Johnston, author of The Pet Rescue Mystery Series

"Fans of Tracy Weber's charming Murder Strikes a Pose have eagerly awaited the return of yoga instructor Kate Davidson and her challenging yet lovable German shepherd, Bella. Happily, Weber's second yoga mystery, A Killer Retreat, is as delightful as her first. Readers will love the setting, the complex mystery, and the romance of Kate's second adventure. Especially noteworthy in this popular series is the appealing combination of strength and vulnerability that Kate and Bella share. Enjoy!"—Susan Conant, author of The Dog Lover's Mystery Series

"Whether yoga instructor, Kate Davidson, is wrestling her hundred-pound dog, her new love life or trying to solve a murder, A Killer Retreat is simply a killer read! Witty, fun and unpredictable, this is one cozy mystery worth barking about!"—Shannon Esposito, author of The Pet Psychic Mystery Series

"Fun characters, a gorgeous German Shepherd dog, and a murder with more suspects than you can shake a stick at. A Killer Retreat is a must read for cozy fans!"—Sparkle Abbey, author of The Pampered Pet Mystery Series

        November 24, 2014
        Weber’s entertaining second Downward Dog mystery (after 2013’s Murder Strikes a Pose) takes Seattle yoga instructor Kate Davidson to Orcas Island in Puget Sound for a working vacation. Teaching yoga classes at the Elysian Springs resort seems like a good idea, until Kate finds the body of Monica, a guest attending the wedding of resort caretakers Emmy and Josh, in the spa. Nearly everybody heartily disliked Monica, including Kate, who becomes the primary murder suspect. A quirky lawyer helps her stay out of jail for the time being, but Kate and her boyfriend, Michael, will have to find the real killer with the help of Kate’s German shepherd, Bella. Meanwhile, Bandit, an intensely annoying Jack Russell terrier, terrorizes Bella and the resort’s guests, while Monica’s distraught husband, a cranky chef, also distracts from the investigation. Cozy readers will enjoy the twist-filled plot. Agent: Margaret Bail, Inklings Literary Agency, LLC.
