About the Author
Born inScotland, I emigrated to Canada at the tender age of seven. Years lateras a University of Toronto graduate, I convinced the federal governmentto hire a Fine Arts specialist as a computer programmer. After threeyears of bits, bytes, and dumps (probably not what you're thinking), Igraduated again, this time to full-time homemaker and mom, raising twowonderful sons. Plunging back into the business world, my second husband and I started a management consulting company. This marriage survivedbecause my husband and I pledged never to work on the same projectagain. Ever.
After a century in the consulting world, I grew weary of wearing snappy power suits, squeezing into panty hose, and fightingrush hour traffic. I made a life-changing decision. I wanted to writebooks. Not dry, boring, technical treatises, but fresh, funny romanticsuspense novels. How hard could it be? Thousands of authors did it every year.
Always an over-achiever, I quit my day job, attended aone-week seminar on writing a novel, read a couple of how-to books,joined the Ottawa chapter of RWA, and plunged right in. Learning can be a humbling experience, but I persevered. I slaved. I revised. I learned.After twenty-five rejections, countless workshops, six-re-writes, andtwo first-prize wins, my efforts finally paid off with the sale of myfirst book.
My husband and I live in Ottawa where I volunteer foran addiction family program, play bridge, bicycle, hike, square dance,read (naturally), and slave over my computer to improve my writingskills.

I gave up trying to figure out who the dognapper was, and just fell into the journey with Grace, Nick, and Aunt Beth.
I absolutely loved this book from start to finish
A good comedy to read and enjoy, Will Nick help her.
In FUR BALL FEVER, the issue that kept the couple apart was that Grace could be too reckless and Nick worried too much about her to handle it. Grace was reckless, but it was often in an effort to help other people so she came across as quite likable. Nick's problem was that he was worried about her, and that made him likable as well.
In addition to the main characters, there was the delightful character of Aunt Beth who was an oddball stoner. In reading this book, I felt like I was reading something new. I didn't feel like I had seen these characters a million times before.
One flaw I noticed in this book was one that I am quite guilty of myself. Some scenes went on way too long and I found myself skimming some parts. Sometimes you love your characters so much that you go on too long and you need an editor to tell you when to scale back.Sometimes it's tough to cut your work down, but it's vital to keep the story running at a good pace.
Overall, I enjoyed this story very much and highly recommend it for a fun, entertaining read.
Above all, masterly crafted.
What more could one wish for?
But when she demands his help finding a missing dog, his protective instincts kick in, even though it puts his own undercover operation in jeopardy.
Fans of Stephanie Plum and dog lovers should love this one--it revolves around a dog show in an exclusive New Jersey community.
Grace and Nick are really cute together (he's a hot southern guy--yowsa!), and the mystery sucked me in. The supporting characters, especially the pot-smoking aunt, made me laugh.
Top international reviews
Right from the very beginning, the comedy was evident and was placed at just the right moments. Nothing is as realistic as a love story being entangled with comedy because that is how life and love should be and Maureen delivered the realism in spades. Add to that the mystery that needs to be solved and the triple threat is complete.
This was a very well put together novel and I found myself loving it from word one right until the end. If you're looking for a love story mixed with a good mystery and situations that will tickle your funny bone than this book is definitely for you.
Absolutely phenomenal read :)
