Pamper yourself with a fun cozy mystery read!

I'm lucky enough to have read the advance reading copy and found it to be a light-hearted mystery with a likeable cast of characters set in wonderful Laguna Beach where pets are pampered and people are passionate about their four-legged family members. There's an excentric here and there and a pet pschologist who ends up solving a murder. The authors voice is clear with a bit of wry humor. I recommend this book if you like an quick enjoyable read. Can't wait for the next book in the series by Sparkle Abbey!

Okay, but not a reread for me. Author does keep more than one story line: one personal and one professional to the main character. Not a particulary devious plot. 212 pages long with a preview of another story.

    Between the plot spoilers ruining the book and the kids on here role playing and writing their own stories, its hard to get a true review. Bn, please do something to these plot spoilers who continue to reveal the entire book in their so called reviews, and ban these kids that use the nook to role play. We are sick of them.

    This book is bad

    It is time to put an end to all the no-talent hacks who write so-called mysteries. There is nothing mysterious about the plot and the talking dog is too cutesy. The writing style is that of a child. The book isn't even funny.

    Didn't even bother...

    If there are no editorial comments then I want no part of it. Call me a snob, but epub books that aren't edited by an honest editor aren't worth it.
