The Valentine Family is at it again – and no one is going to harm them. Elvis, reincarnated as Callie Valentine Jones’ Bassett hound dog, will make sure of that! Along with mysterious Jack and Uncle Charlies help!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
While in Cozumel for an undertaker’s convention and to visit with Callie’s curvaceous cousin Lovie’s archaeological boyfriend, a drunk Lovie is kidnapped right off the beach! Elvis thinks it is his responsibility to keep tabs on Lovie and follows the kidnapper and they both become ensnared with the kidnapper. However, Lovie, being the outgoing person she is, doesn’t take anything from her kidnappers and she and Elvis manage to break semi-free.
Callie makes it a point to help find Lovie and Elvis, letting Uncle Charlie bring in Jack, Callie’s almost ex-husband; however, she has plans of her own, which in turn cause her to become kidnapped as well. Never fear, Momma and Fayrene are there to save the day with their hocus pocus act.
Webb has written a very comic mystery with a dash of romance dangling here and there. To say that you will laugh while reading this novel would be an understatement – don’t read it on the train going to work! “I Gotta Know” the next adventures of Callie and Lovie, and see what kind of trouble Elvis can “Patch Up.”

"Not Just another Hound Dog"
Elvis, the beloved Rock-N-Roll Icon is reincarnated into Callie Valentine Jones¿ handsome Bassett Hound, who uses his talents once again, including baying a medley of ¿The King¿s¿ tunes (some even I had forgotten!) with the fourth of Peggy Webb¿s ¿Southern Cousins Mysteries¿. Uncle Charlie Valentine, well-respected mortician of Mooresville, is heading to the Undertaker¿s Convention in Cozumel and has quite the zany crew accompanying him! Callie¿s Mama, Ruby Nell; is all spiffed up with jet black locks and a ¿loan¿ from Daughter Callie¿s bank account as well. Ruby Nell¿s best buddy, Fayrene; who, with her Husband, Jarvetis, runs the local hot spot for pickled pig¿s lips known as ¿Gas, Grits and Guts¿. Fayrene leaves her hubby in charge of the empire including her newest coming attraction, ¿The Séance Room¿ , which is under construction. Callie, Elvis¿s ¿Human Mama¿ and owner of the beauty salon/spa, ¿Hair.Net¿, decides she better go along to chaperone Mama and Fayrene and make Uncle Charlie¿s life a little easier as well as have a little ¿Me Time¿ to work out some problems of her own. Does she divorce handsome husband, Jack Jones and marry attentive suitor, Luke Champion? Decisions, decisions!! Especially since she feels like her biological clock is winding down! They (including Elvis) are all due to meet Uncle Charlie¿s ¿Wild as a March Hare¿ Daughter, Lovie; who is having romance problems of her own in Cozumel. Here she is, under a romantic Mayan moon with the newest love of her life, Rocky; who caters to her every whim while being up to his armpits in an archeological dig, BUT, won¿t make ¿A move¿ on her! Ruby Nell, Fayrene , and Callie (plus Elvis) have promised oodles of advice. All goes as smooth as Lovie¿s Prohibition Punch until Elvis, being the dynamic dog he is, digs up a bone associated with a thirty-year old murder case. Everyone has a theory until the plot thickens with the disappearance of Lovie and Elvis. You¿ll have more than a few enjoyable chuckles as you unravel this mystery. Will Callie relent and stay married to Jack ? Will Rocky finally discover ¿The National Treasure¿? Will Lovie and Elvis ever be found? As an added bonus, there are recipes at the end of the book, including ¿Lovie¿s Prohibition Punch¿, which I¿d be sure will make your cares vanish like the hot biscuits on a Sunday dinner table.
