excerpt

A hunky veterinarian, his irrepressible beagle pal, and a quiet Navajo colleague who keeps him guessing about her heart...what could be more fun?

Dale Kinsall thinks he's pretty much adjusted to his new home—to the eccentric nature of his clinic staff and to the altitude and climate of the high desert. He's even gotten used to being known as the veterinarian who solved the eco-murders.

But that fragile sense of stability vanishes overnight. Contractors turn the clinic upsidedown, fellow-vet Laura's nephew is deathly ill, and then Laura herself is hit by the same feared virus—even as Dale is the victim of a brutal and mysterious attack. Dale can't believe it's all coincidence... but everyone else pretty much thinks he's nuts.

Everyone but Sully the Beagle, that is. He’s an expert mouser and
experienced tracker. He can tell there's trouble brewing for Dale and
Laura—because, after all...

Sully knows the Scent of Danger.

The third mini-installment of the Dale Kinsall mystery series

"...Fans will enjoy this fun Arizona cozy.."
--Harriet Klausner

"Good escapist reading."
--Library Journal Review

"Doranna Durgin writes a symphony of characters with the skill and complexity of Tchaikovsky. What a pleasure to catch up with Dale and Sully in their latest adventure. Bravo! More, please!"
--Lorna Barrett, author of the Booktown mystery series


Praise for Nose for Trouble:

"In this wonderfully engaging mystery, veteran author Doranna Durgin introduces the appealing Dr. Dale Kinsall, an accomplished veterinarian and recent transplant from Ohio to Arizona. When Dale, accompanied by his sidekick, a Beagle named Sully, arrives at his new veterinary clinic in the desert, bizarre events occur from the outset.... Nose for Trouble provides true insight into the practice of veterinary medicine. A captivating read..."
--Lynne Maxwell, Mystery Scene

"NOSE FOR TROUBLE is a lighthearted funny amateur sleuth tale starring a caring individual.... The eccentric support cast, mostly those working at the clinic, Laura, and Sully, finds themselves in amusing predicaments that will have the audience laughing out loud."
--Harriet Klausner

"...Keeps you interested from page one....I highly recommend Ms. Durgin's latest work to one and all."
--Wendy Keel, Romance Reader's Connection, 4 daggers

"Romance and Mystery Plus Fun!
A Nose for Trouble does it all. With Beagle! ...The mystery kept me turning pages madly, when I wasn't giggling. But what really caught my heartstrings were the interactions between the main character and his dog. Nothing sappy, everything real. Written by someone who knows dogs and people, and brings out the best in both."
Julie Czerneda, author of SURVIVAL
