Publisher's Summary

It's almost time for graduation, and Eastern College is in trouble. A prominent alumna is dead, and a faulty computer program is jeopardizing student records and financial aid. It's up to Steve and Rochester to dig into the situation and retrieve the culprits! Rita Gaines wasn't a nice person - but she did love her dogs, and most of her clients respected her financial acumen and her talent in training dogs for agility trials. When she's found dead, there's a long line of potential suspects from Wall Street whiz kids to doting doggie daddies - including one of Steve's former students. Felae is an art prodigy now studying with Steve's girlfriend, Lili, chair of Eastern's Fine Arts department, and Rita hated his controversial senior project. When she tried to have his scholarship cancelled, he threatened to kill her. But is he the villain behind her death? In between helping Steve's high school friend Rick track the killer, Rochester practices darting around weave poles and jumping over limbo poles while Steve helps shepherd the college toward the completion of another academic year. It's spring in Stewart's Crossing, and old friends - and their dogs - gather together to investigate and eventually, to celebrate.

The Best of the Series

I really enjoyed this book. I hope there will be more in the series and that they will be in the Audible library.

Enjoyable Reading

A highly abrasive member of Eastern College's board of trustees is found dead, and Steve and Rochester are on the case! They nose through the potential suspects and use their own special skills to find the killer.

This is the third book in the Golden Retriever mystery series, and it's best enjoyed after reading the first two books. I loved Rochester, the doggy detective with a nose for mystery. The college setting is a good one, and I liked learning about the inner workings of the administration office and financial services. The agility training was interesting, and so were the alpha dog training tips. I'm probably not the only dog mamma who decided to eat before feeding their dog after reading this one!

The narration was done well, the narrator has the perfect voice for Steve, and immersed me in the story. I received a copy of the audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review.
