Hi Everyone,

I am stopping by with a couple of mini reviews...

28 Summers
The newest Elin book! Can't have summer without a new one from her.

The Truth About Stacey (Graphic Novel)
Followed the actual book great and was perfect since I have been watching the BSC.

Karen's Witch
Another graphic novel, again perfect since BSC has been on my mind.

Earthquake Surprise
Found this chapter book in a LFL and had to pick it up since it has some historical VA information. I really enjoyed it.

Book Review: Of Mutts and Men

Thursday, July 2, 2020

Author: Spencer Quinn
Summary from Goodreads: Spencer Quinn's Of Mutts and Men is the latest in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling series that the Los Angeles Times called “nothing short of masterful"…

When Chet the dog, “the most lovable narrator in all of crime fiction” (Boston Globe), and his partner, PI Bernie Little of the desert-based Little Detective Agency, arrive to a meeting with hydrologist Wendell Nero, they are in for a shocking sight―Wendell has come to a violent and mysterious end. What did the hydrologist want to see them about? Is his death a random robbery, or something more? Chet and Bernie, working for nothing more than an eight-pack of Slim Jims, are on the case.

Bernie might be the only one who thinks the police have arrested the wrong man, including the perp’s own defense attorney. Chet and Bernie begin to look into Wendell’s work, a search that leads to a struggling winemaker who has received an offer he can’t refuse. Meanwhile, Chet is smelling water where there is no water, and soon Chet and Bernie are in danger like never before.

Personal Review:Did you see that cover? I had to read this one, if nothing else for the dog! I enjoyed the story and the mystery throughout. I love to hear about working dogs even if in the fictionalized setting.

This was a quick read and perfect for a relaxing day at the lake. Out on July 7th, get your copy today!

Disclaimer: I was awarded this book from the publisher. Though I did not pay for the book, the opinions are strictly my own.

Happy Reading!
