Pit Perfect

Pit Bulls are Sweet . . . and that's no mystery!


Fall in love with Lily Mason, the shifter who only wants to live as a human, and her pit bull Smooshie, a rescue dog who in the end may be the one doing the rescuing!


Pit Perfect, Book 1 of the Barkside of the Moon Mysteries from USA Today bestselling paranormal cozy mystery author Renee George, is an exciting tale of mystery and suspense that will have you on the edge of your seat.


When cougar-shifter Lily Mason moves to Moonrise, Missouri, she wishes for only three things from the town and its human population. . . to find a job, to find a place to live, and to live as a human, not a therianthrope.


Lily gets more than she bargains for when a rescue pit bull named Smooshie rescues her from an oncoming car, and it's love at first sight. Thanks to Smooshie, Lily's first two wishes are granted by Parker Knowles, the owner of the Pit Bull Rescue center, who offers her a job at the shelter and the room over his garage for rent.


Lily's new life as an integrator is threatened when Smooshie finds Katherine Kapersky, the local church choir leader and head of the town council, dead in the field behind the rescue center. Unfortunately, there are more suspects than mourners for the elderly town leader. Can Lily keep her less-than-human status under wraps? Or will the killer, who has pulled off a nearly Pit Perfect murder, expose her to keep Lily and her dog from digging up the truth?


This paranormal cozy mystery contains cougar-shifters, shifters, lovable pit bulls, and supernatural beings.




I have to thank Lauren Allen of the Missouri Pit Bull Rescue organization for patiently answering each one of my questions about pit bull rescue (no matter how crazy they might have been). Thank you for sharing the stories of success and failure you all experience in your quest to save this wonderful breed. I encourage everyone who loves dogs to donate to this group (www.mopitbullrescue.org) as they build their new shelter that will allow them to house even more rescues until they can be placed in foster or forever homes. The shelter in my book is more well-funded than real life shelters, but that is the benefit of fiction. There is not nearly enough money, volunteers, or space at most of these places to help all the pit bulls who need to be rescued. Any mistakes I may have written about pit bull rescue are mine and mine alone.
