Where to find Susan J. Kroupa online
Doodle, that amiable but independent canine detective, returns with a new adventure. A trip to the Blue Ridge Mountains quickly turns dangerous when Molly tries to help a friend and runs smack into an unscrupulous man with a big secret. And Doodle discovers that while it’s no fun being lost in the woods, it can be even worse to be found—by the wrong person. For dog and mystery lovers of all ages
In his second adventure, Doodle’s nose gets put to the test when Molly starts training him to find something very different from bed bugs to clear her best friend’s brother from drug charges. But when Doodle fails a practice with the boss for an important certification, it takes all of Molly’s ingenuity and Doodle’s keen intelligence to sniff out the real villains and set things right again.
Ask Doodle why he flunked out of service-dog school and he’ll tell you: smart and obedient don’t always go hand in hand. Now he has a new job sniffing out bed bugs for his new boss, Josh Hunter. But when the boss’s ten-year old daughter, Molly, needs Doodle’s help to solve a mystery, Doodle’s nose and Molly’s camera lead them straight to danger.
