Susan Abel Sullivan's latest book continues her quirky Southern humor combined with the supernatural-- in this case, a (greatly expanded) werewolf tradition. A family on vacation gets caught in a tourist trap with  twists they never expected. I would classify this book as a combination of Neil Gaimon's American Gods and an example of a Southern tall tale. As a reader, I could not suspend disbelief--the story is so off the wall that the reader should think of it as a fish story. Read it and enjoy it for what it is--the humor is well-worth it.

The second Cleo Tidwell Paranormal Mystery, Weredog Whisperer was even more enjoyable than the first, with the return of the indomitable Cleo, her adorably supportive husband Bertram and her mother-in-law Georgia.  Also for effect, we are on spring break with Cleo’s four nieces, and a newly adopted pit bull named Luna as a tester for the ‘parenting thing”.   Of course, this is Cleo, and the backwoods of the Florida panhandle are rife with strange characters: Cleo and her family meet nearly all of them.  First stop in the minivan from hell is a stop at a tourist trap offering a Were dog Whisperer show.  Ramshackle and run down, the amusement park is scary cool for a 6 year old, scarily lame for anyone older. Highlight of their night was the nearly hairless man who entered a cage in a tiny red thong speedo, emerging as a nearly hairless Chinese Crested dog.   From this point on, if you’ve ever experienced a series of unfortunate events, you will with Chloe and her family.  From events that, were you not already somewhat inured to the paranormal from a haunted Velvet Elvis in the last book, would send you to the funny farm, all the way to events that jeopardize everyone’s life, including Cleo’s.   A teenaged girl who has the experience and behavioral compass of a dog,  a veterinarian with the energy level of a Jack Russell Terrier, a mother in law who believes that aqua net fueled bic-lit flamethrowers are an appropriate response and a real “shark” of a rental agent and these are only some of the characters one will encounter.  I can’t really share some, without spoiling so: if you like some chaos, with lots of different shifters, a narrator (in Chloe) who rarely swears, is usually polite and surprisingly accepting of all the paranormal weirdness that surrounds her and enjoy a fun story – this is it.  Add in a few moments of laugh until you cry and this is as good, if not better, than the first in the series.  And puts Chloe Tidwell firmly on my must read her next adventure list.   I received an eBook copy from the author for purpose of honest review for the Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
