When the local pet store hangs children’s wishes from their tree, rather than ornaments, Laurie picks a wish and is determined to see it through. The coat for Danny’s mom and the sweater for his dachshund are easy fixes, but when Danny asks for the safe return of his father, Laurie turns to Andy for help. It seems that his dad, Noah Traynor, is being accused of a murder that took place fourteen years ago.
The police seem to have caught a break, and after fourteen years they were able to match DNA found at the scene to Noah. Noah swears he is innocent, and Andy begins to believe him, so the team is assembled and they begin to follow the leads to find the actual killer.
Andy’s team has been unstoppable in this series, and this book is no exception. Andy’s relationship with each and every one of them is my favorite part of the series, and reading Rosenfelt's books is as comfortable as slippers and hot chocolate. I believe that Rosenfelt is introducing the beginnings of a new series in this book, as Laurie, investigator/bodyguard Marcus and retired policeman Corey (and his police dog Simon) tell Andy that they are starting their own investigative group called The K Team. Hopefully Andy will be an active part of any K Team book in the future.
For those dog lovers out there, have no fear, there are several new dogs introduced in Dachshund Through the Snow, and Andy makes sure that they are treated well throughout.
