Any Meat in That Soup?
A Sam Darling MysteryPaperback - 2015
When a man falls down at Samantha Darling's feet, she thinks it's pretty funny. But she stops joking when he turns up dead. Social worker and would-be crime-solver Sam is busy trying to unravel the mystery as the death toll keeps mounting. She's thrilled to be hired by the handsome local PI to work in the ER and investigate. Being paid to snoop makes her feel like she's died and gone to heaven, but Sam's elation quickly evaporates when she finds out that her sister Jen is being investigated for the murders.A trio of other suspects, a poisoning scare for her best bud and canine companion Clancy, and the back-and-forth pull of Sam's attraction to the dreamy Michael and the loyal George keep her unbalanced as she tries to juggle social work, secret sleuthing, and a romantic triangle. As usual, Sam takes her snooping to extraordinary heights. She can't seem to stop putting her nose where it doesn't belong.And this time... she may have gone too far.Don't miss the other Sam Darling books!

Loved it very very much!...This book was very well written and I loved all the humor sprinkled throughout the story. Characters were loveable, not to mention the dog. Great ending....Sam Darling is the kind of gal you wish you could know in real life. Funny, quirky, entertaining. And her "partner," Clancy the dog, helped make this book just plain fun to read. When's the next one?!
