    Take the murder of the private school headmaster, suspects all o

    Take the murder of the private school headmaster, suspects all over the place, a pregnant woman who never wanted children or dogs but has both, a third grade boy, and an ex-husband, add a touch of humor, twists and turns, stir, and you have WHISKEY AND SODA by Nina Wright.

    As if Whitney Houston, AKA Whiskey, doesn’t have enough problems with her pregnancy when she doesn’t even know how to change a diaper, her dog Abra that stirs up trouble all over town, her ex-husband Jeb and the father of her child who has a dog of his own named Sandra Bullock that Abra hates, Whiskey witnesses the murder of Mark Vreelander, school headmaster. Though she doesn’t see who shot the arrow that killed Mark, she can think of many suspects. WHISKEY AND SODA isn’t all gloom, however. The author will have you shedding tears of laughter when she describes the behavior of the dogs, an Afghan hound and a bulldog, who are characters with their own personalities. Even the dog’s names will bring a smile to your face. Have you ever met a dog called Sandra Bullock? I hadn’t, until this story.

    The author has written a mystery that will keep you guessing who done it until the very end. At least it did me. With a pet psychic, Whiskey’s mother who you have to meet to believe, and the ex-husband that wants to marry her again, there’s never a dull moment. This is the first novel by Nina Wright that I’ve read. I hope to read others because this one is so much fun. I recommend the book for everyone who likes fantastic characters, humor, and dogs.

    This series and this book in particular are guaranteed entertainment. Abra the Afghan hound finds new ways to wreak havoc with a little help from a French bulldog and a French poodle. There's even a French woman (a pet psychic) in this story. Good mystery, big laughs. Keep 'em coming, Nina Wright!

    I highly recommend this book and this whole series! A big fan of dog fiction, I delight in the (mis)adventures of Abra the Afghan hound and the other canines in Magnet Springs, Michigan. The humans are pretty hilarious, too. This book gives you a chance to see that Whiskey Mattimoe is moving her life ahead and maybe--just maybe--beginning to understand how Abra thinks. You can read these books in any order, so pick one up and start reading. You'll soon want to read them all.

    Posted 6/30/2012: It's been three years since WHISKEY WITH A TWI

    Posted 6/30/2012: It's been three years since WHISKEY WITH A TWIST, the previous Whiskey Mattimoe book, but this one was worth waiting for. WHISKEY AND SODA reunites us with our favorite characters from the first five books and gives us a slew of laughs along the way. Personally, I love dog mysteries. There's no canine out there quite like Abra the Afghan hound, however. Over-sexed and under-supervised, she gets into trouble no other dog could pull off. Can you say four-legged felon? The perfect beach read.
