Join King Harald and Andy Skyberg on their second adventure!
As the leaves begin to change color in New Bergen, Andy Skyberg wants to turn his full attention to his sister’s new café and art gallery—and to the beautiful Finnish architect who’s managing the project.
But the good-natured, go-to guy can’t seem to catch a moment’s peace.
His next-door neighbors—two elderly sisters—want him to fend off a pushy historian who thinks they had a scandalous past. His parents enlist him to entertain a narcissistic, boring couple they would like to ditch. And his ever-scheming Aunt Bev tricks Andy into seeking an improbable new gig that could land him in the hot seat.
Even Andy’s big ol’ mutt King Harald has a kennel full of trouble in store for him, beginning with a pilfered thousand-dollar bill and a naughty garden gnome. Before long, New Bergen’s favorite crime-sniffing pooch finds even more deep doo-doo to toss his boss into.
Havoc and hilarity ensue, as Andy and his happy hound get to the bottom of King Harald’s Heist.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I can give you an honest review, but forget about it being unbiased! (Several of our kids went to Mn universities, and we are all Norse). And we love dogs! This is a fun mystery with thefts, alcohol problems (not the dog or the hero), murder, secrets, a temporary mayorship, and all set in a Norse country small town in Minnesota. King Harald finds erotic gnomes, then a body, tells his part of the story, performs heroically. Andy, divorced once and dumped once, is an artist, works as host in his sister's upscale cafe, is friends with many interesting people, is the one who is partners with King Harald, gets coerced into becoming temporary mayor, is dragged into the murder and investigation. This book is interesting, an easy fun read with lots of laughs along the way. Thanks to LibraryThing giveaways.
Dollycas’s Thoughts We get to know Andy so much better in this installment, I said in my previous review that he needed to bloom and bloom he did. He is taking a very active role in his sister’s new venture and his aunt Bev has a plan that should take up the remainder of his free time. His romantic life takes a very eventful turn too. Sometimes he doesn’t need Herald’s help to get into sticky situations. King Harald continues to steal the show and out hearts. He gets into a bit of trouble and helps Andy learn some secrets about the dear ladies next door. And as in the last book there is so much more…. This is an outstanding follow up to The Karma of King Harald. It is an easy read with fantastic dialogue and a top-notch whodunit. The characters are fun and engaging. I so love Harald. There is plenty of mystery, mayhem, and humor and Andy and Harald are in the middle of it. This was one of those books that once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Now I want more. I can’t wait for Harald and Andy’s next adventure.
