She’s at it again! In this fourth installment in the Whiskey Mattimoe series, Magnet Springs is in a frenzy over multiple sightings of dead mayor Gil Gruen and the self-induced exile of their resident Seven Suns of Solace adviser, Noonan Starr, just when she’s needed most. While opportunity knocks at Whiskey’s door in the form of a sexy Scotsman with real estate agent potential, a charming karma-obsessed self-help author with dating potential, and Whiskey’s ex-husband, who possesses the potential to drive her out of her mind, mayhem abounds. When one of Whiskey’s tenants is found murdered on the shores of Lake Michigan and the children in the young woman’s charge disappear, it’s up to canine-challenged Whiskey to rescue Magnet Springs from a scandal unlike any other it’s ever known. Can Whiskey help the town discover the truth about Twyla Rendel's death and lay Gil Gruen to rest for good before it’s too late?

Author Wright understands and captures every funny thing a dog can do. She also knows how to write a compelling mystery that keeps you guessing right to the end. If you've read her earlier books, you know that each one just gets better. I laugh out loud every time I read a Whiskey Mattimoe mystery, and this is the funniest, best one yet. Go, Chester! Go, Abra! Go, Whiskey!!!!
The character of Twyla Rendel really stuck with me after I read this admittedly comic mystery. I'm a social worker, and I know women like her. But mainly I read the Whiskey Mattimoe mysteries for fun. You know, for escapism. And this one, like the others, delivers. I took it on vacation and devoured it on the plane and on the beach. If you follow the series, you'll enjoy your favorite characters--Abra, Whiskey, Chester, Jenx Jenkins, Odette--plus a few other regulars: Fenton Flagg, Tina Breen, and Peg Goh. I thinnk this book makes you think a little more than the others in the series do, but it also makes you laugh. Often and hard! Really enjoyed it and definitely recommend it. Do ya like dogs? Gotta read this!
