Life in Pleasant Hills, Texas, flows like sweet molasses. Normally.But nothing is pleasant or normal about murder.
On a hot summer night, southern and sassy Steely Lamarr discovers someone murdered the janitor at her newly acquired dog-grooming shop. Unfortunately, the rest of the community considers the deceased riffraff and a stain on society. But for Steely, the mysterious death of the coworker hits the heart. Steely vows to track down the killer with the help of her motley crew, a cheeky Chihuahua and her best friend Daniel. Except her dogged determination puts her in the doghouse. Especially with the gorgeous, new police officer in town.
When a bank heist turns Pleasant Hills upside down, Steely suspects the two crimes are related, and she sets out to prove it. As Steely chases clues across town, she winds up a suspect, on the murderer’s radar, and her boyfriend kicks her to the curb. She soon realizes, sometimes, the culprit is the one you’d never suspect who’s as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.
Can Steely catch the larcenous killer before she becomes the next victim?
