Publisher's Summary

Come to a place haunted by legends...where the search for treasure just might lead to murder.
Come to the hills of the Ozarks and meet Maggie Porter and her dogs - a champion Labrador Retriever, an aging Cocker Spaniel, and a Beagle retired from federal service. Maggie has returned home to reopen the family dog kennel business, where she's plagued by problems from the start. Serious trouble arises when a gossip-loving employee turns up dead holding an heirloom locket belonging to Maggie's mother.
More trouble arrives in the shape of anonymous threats and mysterious break-ins. And when a security crisis puts everything she loves at risk, Maggie realizes somebody doesn't want Waterside back in business.
As the region sizzles in record heat, a "Treasure of the Ozarks" campaign disrupts her quest for answers even as it breathes new life into old tales and brings out tourists and treasure hunters alike. With her loyal dogs at her side, Maggie must dig for the truth behind the violence. Along the way, she learns that everyone has something to hide - and some secrets are worth killing for.
Deadly Ties: a tale of family, friendship, and betrayal in a mountain community where ties run deep and grudges can linger for a lifetime.

I Look Forward to this Series

Where does Deadly Ties rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranked up with the rest of the mysteries I like, and I enjoyed the story line.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I didn't get on the edge of my seat until the last half of the book.

What about Robin Rowan’s performance did you like?

I didn't like the narrator at all, and almost quit listening the first two chapters. She did get better, but I hope the next book in the series has a different narrator. I continued to listen because I liked the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, I would not listen to this book in one sitting basically because of the narrator. Also, there were a lot of characters in this story, and they could have been pared down.

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed learning about the kennel and dog training part of this story.

Pretty Good Start

This was a good start to a new series. The characters and setting were interesting. The plot was entertaining. However, I felt that the end was drawn out too much and should have been shorter. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the book and will give the second book a chance.
