Judi McCopy just passed away and the next title will be the last one she wrote. I can highly recommend all of her books and I'm said that we will not have anymore adventures of Ruby as he helps solve crimes.

This is a must read if you like mysteries you will love this series. The Dog Walker mysteries are the best. Till Death Do Us Bark is no exception. I could not put it down from start to finish. Curl up with a blanket, a cup of cocoa, and this book by the fire place this winter. You'll be glad you did.

Ellie Engleman has a job any canine lover would, well, kill for. She's a professional dog walker in Manhattan. But Ellie doesn't just walk dogs. She talks to them, too. Okay, I admit that may not seem unusual. Don't lots of us do that? The difference is that the dogs talk back to Ellie, particularly her "main man," Rudy, a Yorkiepoo with a smart mouth who's fiercely protective of his mistress. In "Till Death Do Us Bark," the latest book in the Dog Walker mystery series, Ellie and Rudy are invited by BFF (and very bad driver) Vivian to attend a family wedding in the posh Hamptons. But before the bride-Viv's sister-can say her wedding vows, the groom is found dead, which does put a damper on the festivities. Suspects crop up all over the place, including some members of Viv's own family, a weird and grumpy group of wealthy artistic types. Viv begs Ellie and Rudy to investigate and find out the truth about her almost-brother-in-law and why he died. Of course, Rudy has a distinct advantage because people will say anything in front of a dog, even reveal their darkest secrets. Ellie and her canine sidekick are a formidable detective team. "Till Death Do Us Bark" is a fun read and a warning to all us dog lovers to be careful what we talk about in front of our pups!

Judi McCoy's dog walking series is so much fun to read!! When I want humorous and light, I pick up one of her books. Besides, I am a dog lover!!

With Viv's family at the forefront, it was fun watching Viv's relationship with her family as she worked together with Ellie and the dogs to prove a person's innocence. The banter between Ellie and her canine friends is just as entertaining as the conversations she has with her human friends. This was another good story in this likeable series.

After deciding she needed a dog, Ellie Engleman goes to the pound. There she met Rudy the Yorkiepoo who is the reincarnation of her beloved canine companion who died ten years ago. Rudy speaks to her and Ellie understands him as well as al caninines. Needless to say she adopts Rudy and they become a great crime solving team (See Begging for Trouble and Death In Show) though her job is that of a professional dog walker. After not taking a vacation in about a decade, her best friend Vivian convinces Ellie to take Rudy and accompany her and her Terrier Twink to the Hamptons where her sister Arlene has a home and is also getting married in twenty-four hours. The groom fails to show up and later is found dead in his office on his estate. Ellie keeps reminding herself not to investigate. However, when the housekeeper's son Tomas is arrested, seemingly everyone she knows including Rudy and Twink pressure her to make inquiries; so she acquiesces. With Rudy sniffing out clues, Ellie follows his lead one clue at a time. The fun in this amusing amateur sleuth is the charming chats and camaraderie between politically correct human Ellie and irreverent canine Rudy; for instance she calls her boyfriend Sam and he dubs him "Detective Demento". The action is limited, but Ellie who is always there for friends and family and Rudy make a dynamite detecting duo whose chatter brings humor and crime solving to the story line. Thus the great characterizations starting with the lead pair but also including Viv and her dysfunctional family make for a fabulous anthropomorphist whodunit. Harriet Klausner

I so enjoy this series, it's different and charming, fun but also dark. I mean a dog walker who can talk to her charges and solves crime? What's not to like right? Poor Ellie can't even go on vacation without something happening that she must take care of. Love the voice of both human and canine characters. The case is complicated by a wedding party, a very large list of suspects and family drama. But it gets more complicated when she meets the locals. A bit of a love triangle between her and the new cop in town. That man is sure hot and I know she loves Sam, but I think he could give him a run for his money. Interesting case, nice solve, good read.

I liked the mystery and characters well enough. However, as a fluent spanish speaker, I'm annoyed by the spanish-speaking characters. The spanish was not only grammatically incorrect many, many times, but no self-respecting Hispanic would speak like that. We might interject a word here or there, but not to an almost illiterate extent. This was obviously done using google translate. Also, the spanish languae varies widely. Her dialect was not Mexican. I know itshouldn't matter, but it would have been a thoughtful detail to havevconsidered. Couldn't the author find one real human to have helped her?
