I enjoyed the humor provided by the interaction of the dog Fred with the main character Jake, his neighbor Bon Bon, and his girlfriend Julie. While Jake was solving the recent murder of Lonnie and with the attempts on his (Jake's) life, Fred's personality quirks were a welcome rest stop in the action. There's a lot going on in this book besides the current murder. There's a second murder (this one by hit and run) from years before that Jake is also working on solving as a sub-plot. There's the on-again off-again romance between Jake and Julie and whether or not they will stay together as a second sub-plot.
There are all kinds of motives including poaching and blackmail. Suspects abound from neighbors to sisters. There are several twists and turns and dead ends. The intertwined plot and sub-plots are handled well and solved by the end (including one in the Epilogue). Since the story is told in first person, the reader knows everything Jake knows.
This book is perfect for anybody who wants to play a game of trying to solve the murder(s) before the main character.
I liked this story better than the first book in the series (A View to Die For). However, at times it was difficult to follow since there were so many pieces to the puzzle - so many little side stories that all had to come together to make the main story (who was responsible for Lonnie's death and why) complete. I suppose it would have been easier to follow had I read this in one setting, but since I went to church twice today that wasn't possible.
Still, this was a good story. Again, this is not a great read if you want something exciting or fast paced - on the edge of your seat with anticipation - type of mystery. But if you are looking for a good book for a lazy day, this is a great find. Especially if you like dogs. (And, yes, Jake still gives Fred beer, but not nearly as often as in the first book. At least I don't think he does.)
oh, BTW - Jake finds a little romance in this book. But it is not an all consuming theme of the book. While it is part of the story, it never becomes THE story - the author never forgets this is a mystery. I am not big on reading romance. But this was not overdone, and I liked the interaction between Jake and Julie.
According to the info on this book, the author is currently working on book three. Sounds good.
I suggest that you read it first; I think the books are more enjoyable read in order. Absolutely ON My MUST READ LIST !
And should be on yours too !
