Can’t Wait Wednesday: The Hiding Place by Paula Munier

A series about a former MP and her bomb sniffing K-9

Can’t Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books set to publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

The Hiding Place

by Paula Munier

Series: Mercy & Elvis Mysteries #3

Published by Minotaur Books

Publication date: March 30

Genre: Mystery

336 pages

Synopsis: Some people take their secrets with them to the grave. Others leave them behind on their deathbeds, riddles for the survivors to solve.

When her late grandfather’s deputy calls Mercy to his deathbed, the former MP and her sniffer dog Elvis inherit the cold case that haunted him–and may have killed her grandfather. But finding Beth Kilgore 20 years after she disappeared is more than a lost cause. It’s a Pandora’s box releasing a rain of evil on the very people Mercy and Elvis hold most dear. Most at risk may be her grandmother, and Mercy and Elvis must team up with Vermont Game Warden Troy Warner and his search-and-rescue dog Susie Bear to save her from the man who murdered her husband, who’s escaped from prison and is now out for revenge.

A series about a former MP and her bomb sniffing dog. I really enjoy reading about them as well as the search-and-rescue dog Susie Bear in this series. And the books take place in beautiful Vermont. I also love a book with a dog on the cover!

Blind Search by Paula Munier

Series: Mercy and Elvis Mysteries #2

Published by Minotaur Books

Publishing date: November 5

Genre: Mystery, Working Dogs

Synopsis: It’s October, hunting season in the Green Mountains—and the Vermont wilderness has never been more beautiful or more dangerous. Especially for nine-year-old Henry, who’s lost in the woods. Again. Only this time he sees something terrible. When a young woman is found shot through the heart with a fatal arrow, Mercy thinks that something is murder. But Henry, a math genius whose autism often silences him when he should speak up most, is not talking.

Now there’s a murderer hiding among the hunters in the forest—and Mercy and Elvis must team up with their crime-solving friends, game warden Troy Warner and search-and-rescue dog Susie Bear, to find the killer—before the killer finds Henry. When an early season blizzard hits the mountains, cutting them off from the rest of the world, the race is on to solve the crime, apprehend the murderer, and keep the boy safe until the snowplows get through.

Inspired by the true search-and-rescue case of an autistic boy who got lost in the Vermont wilderness, Paula Munier’s mystery is a compelling roller coaster ride through the worst of winter—and human nature.

It’s fitting that my first Can’t-Wait-Wednesday in several months is a mystery about a working dog. Reading mysteries with working dogs in them are just about my favorite type of book right now!

I read the first Mercy and Elvis book (A Borrowing of Bones) last year and really enjoyed it. I love the cover of this book!

Series: Mercy Carr #1

Published by Minotaur Books

Publishing date: September 11

Genre: Mystery

352 pages

Synopsis: First in a gripping new mystery series about a retired MP and her bomb-sniffing dog who become embroiled in an investigation in the beautiful Vermont wilderness.

It may be the Fourth of July weekend, but for retired soldiers Mercy Carr and Belgian Malinois Elvis, it’s just another walk in the remote Lye Brook Wilderness—until the former bomb-sniffing dog alerts to explosives and they find a squalling baby abandoned near a shallow grave filled with what appear to be human bones. U.S. Game Warden Troy Warner and his search-and rescue Newfoundland Susie Bear respond to Mercy’s 911 call, and the four must work together to track down a missing mother, solve a cold-case murder, and keep the citizens of Vermont safe on potentially the most incendiary Independence Day since the American Revolution.

A Borrowing of Bones is full of complex twists and real details about search-and-rescue dog training that Paula learned through the training of her own dog. With its canine sidekicks and rich, dramatic story, this debut will be a must-have for mystery fans.

I really like books about dogs especially working dogs–whether search-and-rescue, military or police dogs. I like to read about their interactions with humans plus the amazing work they do. And I love a good mystery! I really want to read this book!
