Bark Twice for Danger is currently on tour with Goddess Fish Promotions. The tour stops here today for an excerpt and a giveaway. Please be sure to visit the other tour stops as well.

Comic Con is in full-swing and all is well. But no sooner does the biggest event of the year begin before a mysterious wave of identify thefts overshadows the grand affair.
While Nala tries to rein in Karly’s efforts to use the con for dating purposes, she also finds herself the target of a brazen thief. If she and her crime-solving canine companion don’t find the culprit, her bank accounts could be wiped cleaned.
Can Nala and Max bring an end to the chaos before it’s too late?

Max’s nose dropped, and his lips went up in a doggy grin. “I have, but not recently. I was trying to remember how to bring my A game. It’s something about getting a girl to think you’re better than you are. Should we lie about how many cases we actually solved?”
It didn’t take a psychic to know her pooch had been listening to Elvin bragging to one of his guy friends. If that was a man’s definition of having an A game, Elvin so didn’t have it. Women recognized him as a hopeless geek seconds after meeting him. If they gave him a second thought, it was usually to set up their smart television or fix their laptop, which he could.
“That’s not what I meant. Sure, we want to look our best, but there is no reason to lie.” The two of them meandered back to building three, stepping over patches of hard packed dirt with a few sprigs of grass in it. Despite its current circumstances, the grass was making a valiant effort to survive, as possibly were some of the residents. The entire place had the feel of a temporary stop. Her mother would point out that was the whole purpose behind apartments. In her world, people who lived in shabby apartments did not need design services.
As they reached the correct apartment building, she’d counted the number of cases she’d solved, which was almost all of them. There was one date profile she’d looked up for a nervous dater, but by the time she’d discovered he had a habit of romancing wealthy women, her client refused to listen. The dossier still sat on her office desk. Her mother suggested mailing it in about three weeks before the woman lost everything.

Praise for the Book
“Anyone who has ever wished their pet could talk will love this series and the characters who populate it, both old and new. This book features a trip to Comic Con with all its costumes and characters and it is not to be missed! Another fun case in this always charming and entertaining series!” ~ catmom17
“A well-written storyline, characters that seem real, and a mystery that hooks you into the book makes this one you can't put down. I love that the cases are based on real-life situations, and the excellent advice for avoiding the problems is great. Max's sense of humor and the embarrassing situations he causes when he talks when he shouldn't made me laugh out loud! Can't wait for the next book in the series.” ~ catmomma
“Humor, research, hardwork, and friends all add up to a book that is a good read packed with excellent advice. Max is a bonus that makes me happy each time I read one of the books in the series, because who wouldn't love a dog that can talk?” ~ Illinois Reader
“Max has a great sense of humor and is a very good sense of smell that adds in solving the crimes. He sometimes speak when others are around and Nala has to try to cover for the lower voice that people hear. At times they are laugh out loud funny. I enjoyed this story and look forward to more in the series.” ~ cary
“You must read this one!! Enjoyable read and I loved it. Well thought out and well written. The story flows and characters are fleshed out.” ~ Shar
