"The first in a gripping new mystery series by literary agent Paula Munier, about a retired MP and 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 soldier 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 has learned through the training of her own dog. With its canine sidekicks and procedural plot, this series is well-positioned to become "Julia Spencer-Fleming with dogs" and will be a must-have for mystery fans" -- Provided by publisher.

Loved this book, can hardly wait for the next one. Lots of twists and turns, suspense but not high suspense.A varied and interesting cast of characters, whom you want to get to know better. Highly recommended.

This book moves nicely because it involves characters with meaningful community roles and integrates their dog's lives to personify the story.

This is a superlative read. All the elements are there, plotting, execution, style, and editing. I've already pre-ordered the next in the series (hard cover) due out in November 2019, "Cold Silence".

New author to me and really enjoyed it. Loved the characters and the plot moved along. A few twists I wasn't expecting and that is good.
