Fans of Brown’s books co-written with her cat Sneaky Pie will fall in love with this new series set in Reno. Dog lovers in particular will enjoy the canine sleuths. This series promises to be a little edgier than the Sneaky Pie tales, but cozy fans won’t be disappointed. Mystery, a budding romance and clever pets who save the day — what’s not to love?

Former stockbroker Mags Rees finds herself out of work and moving with her dachshund Baxter to Reno, Nev., to live with her great-aunt Jeep. Jeep was a WASP pilot in WWII and is still tough as nails. When Baxter and King, Aunt Jeep’s German shepherd mix, discover a body in the barn, they don’t realize there will be more corpses to discover in the days to come. Fortunately, Baxter, King, Jeep, Mags and sheriff’s deputy Pete are on the case. (BALLANTINE, Oct., 288 pp., $25.00)
