Killer Retreat combines Tracy Weber’s three loves: yoga, dogs and mysteries

Tracy Weber’s second installment of her award-winning Downward Dog Mystery series again has vegetarian yoga teacher Kate and her feisty German Shepherd solving an intriguing murder mystery.

In Weber’s A Killer Retreat (Midnight Ink Books), Kate is teaching yoga at a vegan retreat center when a wedding guest at the center is found dead only shortly after a loud and public fight with Kate. She takes on trying to solve the murder before the police put her behind bars as their number one suspect.

“Weber’s vegan yoga teacher is a bright, curious sleuth with a passion for dogs,” said Krista Davis, New York Times bestselling author of the Domestic Diva and Paws and Claws mysteries. “A well-crafted whodunit with an intriguing mystery and a zinger of a twist at the end!”

Weber’s first book of the series, Murder Strikes a Pose, won the Chanticleer Book Reviews INDIE Manuscript Awards for the Cozy Mystery Category and the Mystery and Mayhem Awards 2013 for the Animal Mystery category.

The series combines Weber’s three loves: yoga, dogs and murder mysteries. Weber has enjoyed mysteries since her earliest reading years as a child, has a rambunctious special-needs German shepherd very similar to the one in her books and has owned her own yoga studio for 13 years.

“My primary intention is always to entertain,” Weber said. “And I’m also trying to convince people that yoga is for everyone, even imperfect, non-bendy people like Kate!”

Weber is a member of the Pacific Northwest Writers Association, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and the Dog Writers Association of America. Outside of writing, she is a certified yoga teacher and the founder of Whole Life Yoga. She and her husband live in Seattle with their German shepherd and a cat.
