A Cozy Mystery with lots of twists and turns!


The first book in the Avery Barks Dog Mystery series is FREE and yours to keep! Just let me know where to send it.


Avery Barks dedicates all of her spare time to training search and rescue dogs and helping the animals. That dedication soon lands her unemployed and out of options.

While helping an elderly friend, Avery and her butterfly loving dog, Chevy, find the unthinkable – a dead body. The sleepy North Carolina mountain town she calls home is shocked and shaken to the core.


5StarRating A Fast, Exciting Book


There was a lot of action packed into this short story. Even a non-dog lover like me could relate to the love between Butterfly Boy and his owner-trainer-partner. This story was a warm, small town, fun adventure.. I hope you enjoy it soon. And check out Mary Hiker’s other books. Readers of all ages will enjoy “Butterfly Boy.”
