ABOUT THE BOOK:
Do bad things really happen in threes? For yoga instructor Kate Davidson, it seems they do–and it also seems that no good deed goes unpunished. Kate’s life takes a chaotic turn once she agrees to not only be the doula for her pregnant best friend–and to play foster mother to two puppies. As if the terrible two puppies aren’t destructive (and disruptive) enough, things get exponentially worse when Kate finds the dead body of a philandering fertility doctor and sees Rachel, one of her yoga students, fleeing the scene.
Convinced of Rachel’s innocence, Kate she sets out to find the real killer before her testimony condemns Rachel to a life behind bars. But who else would have wanted to doctor dead? Kate quickly realizes that there is no shortage of suspects: Could the killer have been Rachel’s troubled teenage daughter? A jilted ex-mistress? The doctor’s latest squeeze? An angry former patient? A fed-up business partner? And what’s the story about those lawsuits against the deceased doctor? Seems this not-so-good doctor has his fair share of enemies.
Finding more questions than answers, Kate launches a race against time to find the truth. But how much sleuthing can Kate really do when her hands are full with caring for three dogs, teaching yoga classes, and gaining an unexpected crime-solving partner? If Kate isn’t careful, her next yoga pose may be a fatal one.

“Come on Bella, let’s hike up to the top.”
I followed the uphill pathway, enjoying the sun on my shoulders and the cool evening breeze on my cheeks. Bella tugged at the end of her leash, playfully teasing the geese into flight.
A large, surprisingly grumpy-looking goose stood in our path, away from his gaggle. Bella glared at him, giving a clear, silent message.
The goose ignored her. Bella added a single, loud bark and a half-hearted lunge.
I said, move.
The goose lifted his wings and replied with a fierce-sounding hiss. I wrapped Bella’s leash tightly around my wrist.
“Bella, leave it.”
I punctuated the command by stepping off the path. Bella planted her paws, assumed the stance of a hundred-pound statue, and growled. The feathered menace–who apparently had a death wish–glared at Bella, flapped his wings, and marched toward her, hissing.
She lunged, she jumped, she snarled, she growled. Cujo on meth would have been friendlier. I dug my heels into the earth and held on, mentally translating her vocalizations into English:
I said move! And I mean now! Or I’ll crush your hollow-boned body between my jaws and shake until every one of those ugly black feathers falls out. I’ll–
The good took the hint. Sort of. He slooooowly waddled away, down the hill, one grumpy step at a time. Bella followed, barking and lunging at his tail feathers.
I desperately waved my free arm, trying to prevent the impending nosedive, but it was no use. Bella and I each weighed a little over a hundred pounds. Since dogs can pull two-and-a-half times their weight, Bella could easily drag two-point-five yoga teachers. The best I could do was hang on for the ride.
