Letters to Die For by Richard Houston

From a USA Today best selling author

Burned-out software engineer Jake Martin and his Golden Retriever, Fred, live in a mountain cabin far enough from Denver to escape the rat-race but not far enough to escape its crime. While remodeling an old house he uncovers a stack of love letters that will turn his world inside out.

When word of the letters gets out, people start dying, including the owner of the house Jake was remodeling. With his main source of income gone, he lets his friend and neighbor, Bonnie Jones, talk him into searching for the killer after they are offered a large retainer. The problem is the person who hires them is the major suspect.

With the help of Fred and Bonnie, Jake continues to find more evidence that his new employer is trying to create a smokescreen to divert attention from himself. Will the trio of amateur detectives be able to stop the murders, or will they become the next victims?

I enjoyed this book for several reasons. The dog actually is an important plot element, which is unusual. The author kept me guessing all the way to the end, which is always good. Plot was well paced and the characters believable . I plan on reading more of his books.

Nice little mystery to kick back with on a wintry day. Lots of twisty plot turns and likable main characters. Clean read.

The character development is better with each new book. I have now read all of his books. Love Fred as his conpanion, plus his relationship with his young at heart neighbor. Can't wait for more.

+4**** Interesting, well written. However, I expect published writers to be literate. -1* poor grammar (irritating); -1* poor punctuation and "that" omitted (confused sentences); -1* vulgarity/crudeness (unnecessary); profanity (answer to God on that); -1* too many people (confusing). +1 At least, the people didn't "grab" things! +1 no sex scenes. SPECIFICALLY: "her and..."; Used incorrectly: in/into; laying/lying; they & them are plural; commas are used to separate two joined sentences. No, I am not a school teacher. However, I am old enough that I knew (was taught) all of those things before I was out of grammar school. Elementary, my dear Watson.

Great characters and nicely twisted plot. Very entertaining.

An Ok mystery with an ending that was really contrived. No missing persons report of two people? Readers weren't conveniently informed of a police slip but the hero was? With all the descriptions of the wonder dog, it felt like he should be telling the story. The police woman gushed over the dog but was hardheaded about everyone else and that was her entire character? It was a short story but the dog had more personality than anyone else. Not interested in reading more of this series.

This was a pretty good novel which kept me guessing. I enjoyed the humor with the role played by Fred. I never would have guessed the ending, though.

I like most books about dogs and my favorites are of Goldens. Unfortunately this book didn't hold my interest as I thought it would. It would be good for kids but I read to many mystery novels and figured it out to soon..

It wasn't bad but it wasn't really good either. At only 142 pages I would have had it read in a couple hours if it was more exciting. But it took me a few days to finish it. This is going to sound petty but I found it annoying when a 70 year old woman would call a middle aged man " silly".
