Dogs like to roll around in the muck, and Maine, as we know, can be an especially mucky place. So it’s natural that a Maine company, Mutt Nose Best (888-255-6854, muttnosebest.com) out of Holden, would offer the perfect product to get your canine companion looking (and smelling) squeaky-clean with an extensive line of pet care products. Mutt Nose Best has a large range of shampoos for smelly dogs (otherwise known as all dogs), itchy, and longhaired ones, too.

Read what our readers have to say about Maine.
The Taker (Gallery Books, New York, New York; hardcover; $25; 438 pages), a debut novel by Alma Katsu, begins ominously enough. A mysterious woman named Lanore McIlvrae wanders into a hospital in rural Maine at midnight, wanted for murder. So begins a bizarre tale as she recounts to the young doctor Luke Findley about a band of immortals led by a sadistic count.
