Who knew a stray dog could lead to so much trouble?

Newlywed animal rights activist Sierra Nakamura Davis is coming face to face with her worst nightmare: breaking the news she eloped to her ultra-opinionated tiger mom.

Her perfectionist parents have planned a vow renewal ceremony at Sierra’s lush childhood home, but a neighborhood dog ruins the rehearsal dinner when he shows up toting what appears to be a fresh human bone.

Between the dog, a nosey neighbor, and an old flame turning up at all the wrong times, Sierra hunts for answers. Surprises abound at every turn as Sierra embarks on a journey of discovery that leads to more than just who did the crime. 

I read this series out of order since I started with Pranced first, intead of Pounced. I remember Sierra from Ms. Barritt’s Squeaky Clean series, and getting to know her there. I do think Chad and Sierra need to communicate more. Both Pranced and HUNTED have the same underlying theme—they didn’t bother to tell anyone about their wedding. It does add tension though.

HUNTED was good and it held my attention all the way through. I didn't figure out who did it until the end.

Other books in The Sierra Files:
Pounced (Book 1) 
HUNTED (Book 2)
Pranced (Book 3)

Available in ebook and paperback. 176 pages.
