When Olivia, Honey the Great Dane’s owner, is asked to be the official photographer for The Royal Dog Show, they’re both excited. When they arrive at the show, Honey is greeted by all her old pals from the neighborhood. As they settle in and see just how busy dog show preparations are for all the show dogs, Honey can’t believe her eyes. She even gets to meet her own doggy doppelganger, Anja, who comes from the same breeder Honey came from. Besides that, once Anja experiences a setback and can’t proceed to do the dog show, Honey must step in her place. Weird things are happening all around them, but nothing is as scary as Honey stumbling upon none other than the Phantom Hound. Who is this Phantom Hound and why does he keep appearing to Honey? How does Honey handle stepping in the show ring?
This is another of Ms. Hanna’s stories that I just adored. It’s filled with the fun adventures of Honey and her best friends, while also providing plenty of mystery along the way. In this story, we learn about the Phantom Hound and why all the mishaps were happening around the Showgrounds. We also get to see the comical transition of Honey when she had to jump in Anja’s place during the dog show. The author knows how to write wonderful stories that make her readers just devour every story she writes all because of silly Honey and her lovable canine friends. These stories are perfect for any age and will surely be a hit with any reader who adores mysteries that are wrapped around fun loving canines. I love this series and I highly recommend it to everyone!
