To my opinion, this was the best yet in the 'Dog Walker Mysteries.' There was murder, humor, chaos, deceit and it was all set at a high fashion show in NYC.

Ellie Engleman is hired with her 'little man', Rudy, to care for models dogs. The dogs are even going to be in the fashion show. This is no small event, it is the annual Fashion Week. Normally, Ellie wears her own fashion, however, even she can not avoid getting caught up in all the back-stage craziness.

One of the despised fashion designers suddenly drops dead from anaphylactic shock. There are too many suspects. Ellie gets asked to investigate and this begins the chaotic romp with Rudy's comments to find the killer. Boyfriend, Sam is not happy.

This book truly gave you the feel of being backstage at this type of event. The humor is well placed and echos what I was thinking. I love the premise of Ellie being able to talk with the dogs. I do weary of her 'need' to hide talking with them though. I don't know a true animal lover that doesn't speak with their four footed or two, in the case of birds, family.

This is a fun cozy murder mystery. One note, personally, Ms. McCoy passed away recently. I'm so very saddened by this passing as I kept seeing her talents grow and she was so kind as to share them with us readers. R.I.P.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's Fashion Week and all is well until one of the model has an allergic reaction. When Ellie tries to give her an injection, the pen is empty and it looks like murder when the model dies. Ellie tries to stay out of the case, but being on the insides gives her access to unwrap a killer before another person is harmed. This evenly-paced and lighthearted tale was a fun book to read. The banter between Ellie and Rudy continues to highlight this wonderful whodunit as the fashion industry serves as the backdrop. As usual the mystery kept me turning the pages and I adore the camaraderie that Ellie has with both her human and furry friends in charming and entertaining series.

With the author's passing, her voice will be sorely missed by this reader.

The most enjoyable part of this series has always been the interaction with the dogs during their walks. This installment palmed the recurring dog characters off on hired help and completely lost that aspect of the story line. Instead of working out the clues through the daily dog walks, it got all tied up in the fashion show and its gossip. I hope the next book gets back to walking the dogs!

I have really enjoyed this series and liked this book because it was like a peak behind the scenes of the fashion industry I know it probably isn't exactly like it in reality but it is fun to think of the different personalities involved in fashion and how they can be so unique.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ellie Engleman gets a break from her professional dog-walking duties to help take care of the canine models during a Fashion Week event in New York City. Part of the event includes a contest for up and coming designers to show off their creations of matching outfits for models and their dogs. One of the designers is murdered the first day of the event and while Lilah was not a nice person, Ellie is shocked at her death. Ellie promises her detective boyfriend Sam that she won't get involved, but when a friend's brother is accused of the crime, Ellie and her Yorkiepoo sidekick Rudy can't sit back and see him go to prison for a murder he didn't commit. The detective in charge of the case doesn't welcome their help, but Ellie won't give up. She and Rudy have the advantage of being a part of the fashion show to question possible suspects as well as witnesses, both human and canine.

"Fashion Faux Paw" is a fun mystery, and the unique part about the book and the entire Dog Walker series is Ellie's ability to actually have conversations with the dogs she takes care of. Her dog Rudy isn't just her pet, but one of her best friends. Rudy may appear cute and cuddly, but he is also extremely intelligent, observant, opinionated, and has a hilariously sarcastic sense of humor. Rudy is an important character and an integral part of the book. Ellie and Rudy make a great team and the way they communicate is fun and actually comes across as believable!

While Ellie and Rudy's friendship is the heart of the book, Ellie also has a good friend Vivian who is thrilled to experience part of Fashion Week through Ellie's invitation. She doesn't play a large role in the book, but is an entertaining character when she does appear.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's Fashion Week in New York City and professional dog walker Ellie Engleman has been hired to take care of the canines. Each dog will wear identically matching clothing that matches her human model; they will walk together on the runway.

One designer Lilah Perry insults Ellie so quickly after their introductions, she belongs in the Guinness Book of Records for speediest derision. However, Ellie realizes that offensive Lilah lashes out at everyone. Lilah and Ellie receive gift baskets that include perfume strips. The mean spirited designer goes to talk to the "important" people, but begins to choke. Someone recognizes the symptoms of Anaphylactic Shock and asks if anyone has an Epipen. Ellie retrieves an Epipen from Lilah's bag, but the gizmo is empty. The police discover peanut oil was an ingredient of the perfume strip that Lilah wore and declare the death a homicide. They soon arrest Jeffrey King, brother of designer Kitty King. Elle is fond of the young woman so when Kitty and others plead with her to investigate she does. Finding someone who did not loathe the victim is like finding a needle in a haystack so Ellie seeks whose motive could lead to murder.

The heroine and her Yorkie Rudy are adorable especially when they communicate as their humorous discussions reduce the tension when Ellie and her canine companion posse begin sleuthing. Also adding an element of humanizing Ellie is her strong romance with Sam the homicide detective as they have a lot in common. Although the reason Ellie investigates is a paradoxical sub-genre default, fans will enjoy the latest Dog Walker amateur sleuth (see Till Death Do Us Bark, Begging for Trouble and Death In Show) as this is an entertaining canine cozy.
