A good story, good writing, and a good finish add up to a great offering from this new novelist. The protagonist, a down-to-earth veterinarian, has his world turned upside down by the re-emergence of a childhood nemesis. The real bad guy is even closer to home. The story flows, the plot engages, and the ending satisfies. A good read.
I was drawn in early, and the pace kept me reading. Nicely written, smooth, and full of interesting wisdom delivered in a sardonic tone. I am going out to buy myself my own little owl. Great usage of the difficult first-person perspective. Recommend.
-Independent Book ReviewsOne of the most enjoyable books I have read in a long time
I found this book in a search for new novels. I simply loved this book! I am a bit of a sap myself, and that plays into it, but I really enjoyed this! I am also shameleslly in love with the main character, Mark -- lol Mark! Dump Sarah and go out with me!

Great, light, fun read
Clever, funny, fast-moving. I enjoyed the wit of the narrator a great deal. Nice story. Nicely written. Good ending. Especially liked the scene with the dolphins.

From the Author
The Whining Mill is my first full foray into the vast genre of fiction - although fiction has always been my favorite genre as a reader. I hope you enjoy this work.
