I did not expect much from this “cozy mystery” book but “cozy mystery” should not become an excuse for “sloppy book”. Instead of enjoying it I kept getting annoyed. For example: when the main heroine-Kelly learns about the murder of her friend, a kennel owner, the only comments she has are about the safety of the dogs. Maybe few lines are missing here? Like being shocked by the murder? Further on Kelly calls wife of one of the suspects who for no obvious reason and out of context tells her what color is her husband car. And of course it is a color Kelly is interested in. All dialogs are repetitive and artificial. The only good thing about this book are dogs. They make book readable.
The initial dialogue was bad and it all went downhill from there. The main characters discuss their recent vacation in inane detail as if they hadn't been together at the time; this is interrupted by a call which the driver takes because he's in law enforcement which makes driving and yakking okay…I guess the wife/passenger couldn't operate a phone. THEN we finally get to the dog part of the story where the wife is driving around, getting strange and terrified dogs to just hop into a strange car using a one-word verbal command that in all my years of rescue work, kennel work, handling and training I have never heard ANYONE use…it was just too much. Let's not even get into constant pit dissing disquised as empathy. This was a waste of time and money. I gave up 20 minutes in. Save yourself.
Great story line and can be appreciated by dog owners. After all your pets are just "hairy kids who walk funny". Dianne gave good insight to dog showing world and how people feel about their pets. the storyline has several twists and character insights and will keep you guessing until the end. Like all Dianne's book, it's a pageturner and you don't want to put it down.I love all her series but Cedar Bay Cozy Mysteries were my introduction to Dianne and are my slight favorite. I highly recommend them all for good story lines, insight to human nature, mystery and love interests.
I really enjoy reading books by Dianne Harman. They are well written and not to violent. This book was about a dog kennel, and I love dogs. her books are mysteries but are very easy to follow. I enjoy reading about the couple, Kelly and Mike, on their new journey as husband and wife. Can't wait for more to come.
I really wanted to like this book. An older heroine plus dogs - sounds like my kind of book. There was so much misinformation about Pit Bulls and dog shows that I couldn't get interested in the meandering plot or care about the characters. If one is going to write about a subject, it is worthwhile to do a bit of research first.
Back from vacation and on way home only to find our someone has killed the kennel owner where their dogs are. Kelly gets in a bit of trouble just trying to help out and thankfully with a little help from the men in her life. Love the characters and the setting of this series. Ready for another one.
This is another comfortable, intriguing story about Kelly, owner of Kelly's Koffee Shop, and her husband Mike Reynolds, sheriff of Beaver County in Oregon. They've had a fun trip to Cuba ... fly fishing. Mike gets a call en-route driving home from the airport that the owner of the Doggie Love Kennel, where they boarded their two dogs, has been murdered. Also, all the kennel dogs have been turned loose, even Rebel and Lady. They not only have to find their dogs, but also the murderer of Mary Barnes. This is the ninth book in this series. Each book is exciting and fun to read. Highly recommend.
Kelly and Mike are on the way to pick up their beloved dogs from the kennel after their trip. They get the horrible news that Kelly's friend had been murdered and all the dogs let out, including Rebel and Lady! Of course both go to the kennel, Mike to do his duty and Kelly to find their beloved pups! She did find them as well as quite a few more. Finally all were accounted for and the search for the killer begins. This book had a good story and it keeps you guessing by giving us a lot of suspects to choose from. Seems like Mary had a lot of enemies! I really enjoyed this book and recommend it to all you cozy mystery readers!
