Off the Chain: Book One - Gone to the Dogs series (Paperback)
Curl up with your pup and sink into a delightful small-town mystery as riddles and rescues stack up in book one of a new cozy mystery series.
Marigold Evans’ first attempt at rescuing an abandoned pooch lands her in a drainage pipe in Brenham Texas. . .and almost in jail, until Parker Jenson comes to her rescue. Then a bad day only gets worse as the Lone Star Vet Clinic, where they both work, is vandalized and the list of suspects starts to climb. With the help of her fellow employees, Marigold sets out to simultaneously solve the crime, rehab the rescued dog, and help more dogs in crisis. But why would anyone continue to work against all their good efforts?

Marigold Evans is a vet tech with a heart of gold and a love for animals, especially dogs. Her passion is to rescue, and rehab lost or abandoned dogs and nurse them back to health. And when she’s not working at the veterinary clinic, she’s following up on dog sightings, scouting vacant lots and drainage pipes with her best friend Cassidy at her side. But there is more to Marigold’s life than wayward pooches. There are handsome hunky guys, lots of pies, a mysterious burglary, and romances blossoming. I refused to paws through this fast-paced story. In fact, I couldn’t stop wondering what was going to happen next! Love the characters, Corgis, chihuahuas, and all the other canines. Furry fun throughout! Warning…when you read Janice Thompson’s, Off the Chain it is likely to start a chain reaction. You’ll want to read all the books in the Gone to the Dogs series!
