Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hope McNeill has worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for years, but this is the first time she's been able to bring along her pug, Max. (Officially at least. Previously she's had to smuggle him in inside her tote bag.)

The occasion: a special "Pug Night" party in honor of a deep-pocketed donor. Max and his friends are having a ball stalking the hors d'oeuvres and getting rambunctious, and making Hope wonder if this is also the last time she gets to bring Max to the museum.

But when a prized painting goes missing, the Met needs Hope's-and Max's- help. In her quest for the culprit, Hope searches for answers with an enigmatic detective, a larger-than-life society heiress, a lady with a shih tzu in a stroller, and her arguably intuitive canine. With luck, she'll find some inspiration on her trips to Pug Hill before the investigation starts going downhill...

Review:

"Pace's cute sequel to Pug Hill sends pug-lover Hope McNeill into a madcap search for an art thief. The two great loves of Hope's life are her job at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and her boyfriend's pug, Max. So when the Met hosts a pug-themed gala in honor of a wealthy donor, the event seems tailor-made for Hope — until Max causes a scene and Hope has to rush him into her office, where they discover that a valuable painting has been stolen and replaced with a fake. Museum brass tell Hope they're not involving the police, but Hope wants to help recover the painting however she can, especially since she's a possible suspect. As she puzzles out the clues, help comes from unexpected places — an heiress and fellow pug enthusiast, a private investigator, and Max, whose intuition and problem-solving skills are pretty remarkable for a pug. Though a sharp reader might spot the culprit a mile away, and readers' enjoyment of the story will be directly proportional to how much they love pugs, Pace has concocted a charming mystery-lite with abundant personality.

Synopsis:

The long-awaited follow-up to Pug Hill--from "a poignant and very funny" (Washington Post) writer.

Hope McNeill has worked at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for years, but this is the first time she's been able to bring along her pug, Max (without sneaking him in in her tote bag). The occasion is a party for an Animals in 19th-Century Art exhibit, but the evening ends badly when a small but important painting seems to be missing. The Met needs Hope's-and Max's-help. And Hope has to keep it all a secret from her beloved, Manhattan DA Ben Brown.
