I have to admit that I get a kick out of the Chet and Bernie mysteries and look forward to the next in the series. The relationship between the two is fun. I haven't guessed all the bad guys, so that's a plus in my book. I do find that as you read book to book, Quinn tends to repeat some of the same ideas/ lines and characteristics. At times I feel like I'd like to tell him, "okay, we know that, you've told us quite a few times." Otherwise, light, fun reading.

I always love Chet's dialogue.  I have read every one of this series and this is my least favorite.  The story seemed forced and lacking interesting detail.   I am such a fan  that I will continue tofollow "The Little Detective Agency" with Chet and Bernie.

Bernie Little and Chet (Just Chet), his dog, of the Little detective agency are back. Bernie misses his girlfriend Suzy, who has taken a job in Washington DC, so he and Chet take a road trip from Arizona(? never really stated) to the Capitol. These stories are told from Chet's point of view. It's an interesting, string of consciousness kind of style where Chet can be checking out a lead with his nose one moment and obsessing about treats the next. All in all, I recommend this series for the humor, and the real mysteries behind the stories.

Chet may be one brilliant bastard (for a dog), but I read this during my darker days where the nights were long and the radiator was cold, and it’s hard to read (or sleep) when you have a flashlight shined in your eyes every half-hour. Sure, the cabin was fun for the first day or so, and I even pretended to like it, but not sleeping gets old really fast. And so does Chet. Something was amiss, and I don’t think it was the lack of bacon bits. Sure, Suzie Sanchez makes an appearance, and where would Chet be without Bernie by his side, but I just wanted a bigger bone, and more fresh water in my bowl (and not the kind you get out of the toilet either as that’s saved for special occasions). But even though I missed the smell of bacon and water and more than a few scratches on my belly, I still enjoyed frolicking around inside Chet’s head. The air was crisp and plenty (since it was blowing in my face), and I leaned my head out the window and squirrel and then he was running and I was running and my teeth were smacking and his lips were jabbering and I found myself being yelled at for no apparent reason. And that’s sort of what PAW AND ORDER felt like. It started out as great fun, but I ended up getting scolded in the end. I received this book for free through NetGalley.

Chet and Bernie return in the seventh and newest book in the series, each book in which I have loved, despite the fact that I usually avoid books with talking animals. But this particular four-legged private investigator, Chet the Dog, and Bernie Little, his partner in the Little Detective Agency, defies the expected rules of the genre. “Chet the Jet,” as he thinks of himself (and he is, after all, the narrator) is as usual the perfect foil for Bernie, who Chet often reminds us is “the smartest human in the room,” and here provides invaluable assistance to Bernie once again. Bernie and Chet got together when the latter flunked out of K-9 school on his very last day there, and they have made a great team ever since. Their last case took them to the Louisiana bayou, and on a whim Bernie decides to go back to their home in the Valley in Arizona by way of Washington, D.C., where his girlfriend, journalist Suzie Sanchez, is now living and working for the Washington Post. To quote from the flyleaf, it seems that Suzie is working on a big story she can’t even talk about to Bernie, and when her source, a mysterious Brit with possible intelligence connections, runs into trouble of the worst kind, Bernie suddenly finds himself under arrest. The fact that he was a decorated war vet who saw action in Iraq, including Fallujah, retiring with the rank of Captain, and was a lieutenant with the Valley PD, stands him in good stead, as is the fact that he now holds a private investigator’s license (one of his frenemies on the local force even getting him one valid in their current jurisdiction). The ensuing plot revolves around a US Presidential candidate who is a former US Army General, campaign managers, consultants, sleeper spies, unmanned drones: in short, some of the very same story lines which one sees in the newspapers and in new tv shows nearly every day. Along the way there is a murder (the deed that led to Bernie’s short-lived arrest). In their usual dogged manner (no pun really intended), Bernie and Chet manage to get to the bottom of things, with no further loss of life, and his relationship with Suzie happily resolved. As with each new entry in this delightful series, “Paw and Order” is a pleasure to read, and is recommended.

I was bit lost in a couple of areas. For instance, Chets ride out to a country house but the story line did not continue except it was mentioned here and there. He was rescued and given a ride only to be returned where he started from....then what??
