About the Book

About the Short Stories The Key to the V: When the body of eccentric 75-year-old blues musician Jimmy Freeman, is found in his kitchen, the young woman who placed his rescue dog with him becomes the prime suspect in his murder. Add in a mysterious key, a rare, vintage electric guitar, along with a cast of endearing characters and you have a short story that is a quick read that keeps you in suspense. Using the eclectic backdrop of Toronto's unique neighborhoods, the first story in "The Rescue Dog Mysteries" series, follows a group of misfit dogs who find happiness with a woman who has learned to make her own way in the world. Freeman’s Best Friend Dog Rescue: The second story in the "Rescue Dog Mystery" series finds Diane Daniels settling into her new role as the founder and director of Freeman's Best Friend Dog Rescue which she runs alongside her partner Marty Cohen, a recording engineer. On a trip to Ocho Rios, Marty rescues a tiny dog and brings her back to Canada to save her life. The quest to determine the true identity of the little "rescue dog" takes a dangerous turn when an unscrupulous person will stop at nothing to retrieve something hidden in the unlikeliest of places. The Christmas Window: The arrival of an expectant Husky and the discovery of an exquisite artist's rendering of one of the most beloved features of a historic property about to be sold to real estate developers, make the founders of Freeman's Best Friend Dog Rescue shelter determined to identify and locate the artist. With the addition of a feisty eighty-nine year old arts guild president and two young travellers to the established cast of characters, Michele Anne O'Neail's third rescue dog mystery celebrates Christmas in a way that Jimmy Freeman would most certainly approve of.

About the Author

Michele Anne O’Neail lives by Lake Ontario in Toronto, Canada with three very loveable dogs. Spending time with family and collecting beach glass along the shore are things that she treasures. The idea of writing in the Cozy style was inspired by a life-long love of fiction that leaves the reader feeling reassured about the abundance of good things in the world. She began work on “The Rescue Dog Mysteries” short stories after experiencing the joy and challenges of rescuing a tiny Maltese dog named Honey-Bea. Although the dog thrived under Michele’s care and eventually became a Therapy Dog, many things about her past remained unknown. The “Rescue Dog Mysteries” series follows a young woman whose friendship with an eccentric musician and his own rescue dog, leads her into unexpected circumstances. Set in the diverse neighborhoods of Canada’s largest city, and often focusing on Michele’s favorite place, the beach, the stories follow characters both human and animal, who will steal your heart. Michele’s short stories have been enjoyed by readers around the world and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive; “Anyone familiar with this Rescue Dog Mystery series will love this ongoing story with an evolving cast of characters that come back to life in more detail with every story. Along the way, new friends are introduced and each has a story within the story and each one has a mystery to unfold.” “Very well written and good character development for a short story. A mystery suitable for all ages. A warm Christmas story.” “This mystery creeps up on you and grows as the story pulls you into the plot with elements of survival, high finance, death and a certain piece of information hidden away. Another hit in this series and I can’t wait for the next one!”
