Six months after solving her friend’s murder, commitment-challenged Kate Davidson has recovered from her injuries and settled into a relatively calm life with rambunctious German shepherd Bella. Now, if only her relationship with boyfriend, Michael, would slow down to match her laid-back yogic lifestyle…

When Kate gets an offer to trade teaching yoga for a weeklong stay at a newly reopened vegan retreat center, she jumps at the opportunity, even though it means being forced to endure the wedding ceremony of the center’s two caretakers. Avoiding the M-word turns out to be the least of Kate’s problems when a wedding guest is found floating face-down in the resort’s hot tub, shortly after a loud, public (and somewhat embarrassing) fight with Kate.

The police pick Kate as their number-one suspect, so she’s forced to join forces with Michael, best friend Rene, and sidekick Bella to find the real killer. But they’ll have to solve the murder before the police arrest Kate, or her next gig may last a lifetime—behind bars.


“An engaging mystery full of fun and fascinating characters and unexpected twists.  An intriguing read that includes yoga lessons and feisty dogs.”

Linda O. Johnston Author of the Pet Rescue Mysteries

“Fans   of Tracy Weber’s charming Murder Strikes a Pose have eagerly awaited   the return of yoga instructor Kate Davidson and her challenging yet   lovable German shepherd, Bella.  Happily, Weber’s second yoga mystery, A Killer Retreat, is as delightful as her first. Readers will love the   setting, the complex mystery, and the romance of Kate’s second   adventure. Especially noteworthy in this popular series is the appealing   combination of strength and vulnerability that Kate and Bella share.   Enjoy!”

Susan Conant     Author of the Dog Lover’s Mysteries

“Whether yoga instructor, Kate Davidson, is wrestling her hundred-pound dog, her new love life or trying to solve a murder, A Killer Retreat is simply a killer read! Witty, fun and unpredictable, this is one cozy mystery worth barking about!”

Shannon Esposito   Author of the Pet Psychic Mysteries

    I thoroughly enjoyed your first novel and look forward with anticipation to this 2nd installment. Kate and Bella make a delightful duo, and I am sure this novel will not disappoint. I expect to find more drama mixed with comedic relief as Kate and Bella rise to the occasion and solve yet another mystery.

      Thanks, Jenny! I’m so very glad you liked the first one. That book was truly a labor of love for me, but in some ways I like the second one better. I cant’ wait for you to read it!

    The cover art is really fun. Looking forward to the content of the book. Hope it is out soon.

    It’s very cute, just like the cover art on the first installment. Kate doesn’t look a bit worried so one must assume she doesn’t know she is a suspect yet!

      My vision for the cover was that Kate didn’t even know a murder had taken place yet. Only that Bella was getting into trouble….AGAIN.

  5. Susan Hodges

    Can hardly wait for A Killer Retreat if it’s anything like the first book this one also will be Awesome. Kate appears relaxed and at ease and Bella looks like she’s up to something…….?
