Karma's a Killer

Book 3, A Downward Dog Mystery

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When Seattle yoga teacher Kate Davidson agrees to teach doga (yoga for dogs) at a fundraiser for a local animal shelter, she believes the only damage will be to her reputation. But a few downward-facing dogs are the least of Kate’s problems when an animal rights protest at the event leads to a suspicious fire and a drowning.
The police arrest Dharma, a woman claiming to be Kate’s estranged mother, and charge her with murder. To prove Dharma’s innocence, Kate, her boyfriend Michael, and her German shepherd sidekick Bella dive deeply into the worlds of animal activism and organizational politics. As they investigate the dangerous obsessions that drive these groups, Kate and her sleuthing team discover that when it comes to murder, there’s no place like hOMe.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 23, 2015 – The murder of Raven, an out-of-control animal rights activist who tries to disrupt an animal shelter fund-raiser in Seattle's Green Lake Park, propels Weber's diverting third Downward Dog mystery (after 2015's Killer Retreat). Yoga teacher Kate Davidson was helping out at the fund-raiser as a favor to her veterinarian boyfriend, Michael. To complicate matters, the suspected killer turns out to be none other than Dharma, Kate's mother, whom she hasn't seen in 30 years. Meanwhile, Kate is at odds with Michael over her secretiveness and his messiness. Plus, the rest of the activists have different agendas, and her best friend is pregnant with twins. That's a lot to pack into a cozy whose main focus is on yoga poses and dog antics. Readers won't be surprised that a little pop psychology goes a long way toward resolving everyone's troubles. Thus Kate realizes that her parents "were simply two deeply flawed individuals who had made terrible mistakes."

Animal rescue, yoga and murder

Kate Davidson has agreed to teach a Doga Class (Dog Yoga) at a fundraiser for a no-kill animal shelter that her boyfriend Michael was hosting. During her Doga Class, a group of protesters going by the name HEAT showed up protesting animal ownership. Later one of the member’s of HEAT showed up at Kate’s yoga studio claiming to be Kate’s long-lost mother Dharma. Shortly after Dharma is accused of murder another one of HEAT’s members. Kate decided she couldn’t let Dharma go to jail without trying to clear her.

Kate and her German Shepard Bella have really come along way since the first book. Bella still has her issues but Kate with Michael’s help has made great strides with Bella’s health. I really enjoyed how all of the characters have become more complex with each book. I love that this series helps to promote pet adoption and animal rehabilitation. The mystery is well developed with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guess which suspect was the murderer.

I listened to the audio version of this book. The Narrator Anne James is wonderful with her accents and diction. You have no problem distinguishing between the characters. She has great pace and timing which is a great asset to the story.

I recommend this book to anyone that loves animals, yoga, and cozy mysteries. If you can get the audiobook you will be in for a great listening treat.

I received a copy of this book from the Author in hopes I would give a review. This did not influence my thoughts in any way. All the opinions of the book are honest and my own.
