About the Author
The late Jack Magestro left careers in teaching, educational administration and Information Technology to write. He lived in a small town in Wisconsin with his wife Jill and their dachshund Belle. His experiences as a frequent traveler to many of the seldom-visited reaches of the Caribbean formed a colorful background for his stories. Jack, Jill and Belle are missed by many, but their gentle spirits survive in all three Redstripe books.

Beyond that, a benefit of fictional writing is that you get to pick the characters' names yourself, it would have been great if the editor would have suggested a name I didn't have to stumble over every time I saw it - Citron? whatever. At any rate, the dachshunds are portrayed as spoiled brats and their owners as rubes catering to the pups.
EDIT: After getting a direct email from the author following this review, I feel it is only fair to clarify that I have not read his previous book. My only experience is with second one. To that extent, my opinion on this text still stands. He did mention an upcoming third book, perhaps it will be better.
The characters and settings of these stories are pure pleasure. The dialogue is a complete joy. And, any dachshund owner can tell you how true they are to the endlessly fascinating parculiarities of the breed.
I am hoping this series contiunues for a loooong time (sorry--couldn't resist)--if so, I have finally found my cache of feel-good fiction!
