When George and Bella―a homeless alcoholic and his intimidating German shepherd―disturb the peace outside her studio, yoga instructor Kate Davidson’s Zen-like calm is stretched to the breaking point. Kate tries to get rid of them before Bella scares the yoga pants off her students. Instead, the three form an unlikely friendship.
One night Kate finds George’s body behind her studio. The police dismiss his murder as a drug-related street crime, but she knows George wasn’t a dealer. So Kate starts digging into George’s past while also looking for someone to adopt Bella before she’s sent to the big dog park in the sky. With the murderer nipping at her heels, Kate has to work fast or her next Corpse Pose may be for real.

This book was an enjoyable read giving you a large option of suspects and motives. However the over all pacing, like Yoga, is slow and calm. The main characters all have their own personalities and flaws. Unfortunately one of the flaws of the main character is one that particularly grates on my nerves. I don't like it when characters act irrationally even if it is in their personal life.
Poor writing does not allow you to feel strong emotions, good or bad, towards characters. So this does show how well the writing was if I could feel such intense dislike for a character. 

As for the audio; the narrator does well giving the characters their own voice and pacing. I did have to speed up the reading simply because I read very quickly and have a hard time processing stories at a normal talking speed. However even once I sped it up I noticed that the Narrator had a calming voice which pairs itself well with a yoga theme.
