Reading the two prior mysteries ( The Green Pearl Caper and The White Russian Caper) is not necessary to enjoy this book but I always like to start at the beginning, to see how the characters evolve and what had happened previously. The book is crafted carefully and the plot moves swiftly to a clever and satisfactory conclusion. Overall, it's very well done and an enjoyable read. I look forward to the next Caper!
I found the good guy characters very easy to bond with, especially Millie, in part due to a warm narrative voice. But also I enjoyed the white-hat, black-hat character dynamics which makes it easier to pick sides than with stories where everyone is a bit more along the grey scale.
Recommended for fans of cozy mysteries, but not necessarily for pet lovers as the dog doesn’t feature heavily into the story as you might think from the cover. The male and female duo of the detective agency had a bit of that Bogart and Bacall charm. The story was set in the 70s and I appreciated that the author conveyed sufficient period-appropriate detail, suggesting she did her research. The author also does a good job tying seemingly separate investigations together at the end, giving us a tale with a bit more complexity than most.
The beginning of the plot hooked me right away because I can relate to planning a nice getaway and ending up with accommodations that were not as nice as I expected them to be. While Damien and Millie seemed to go with the flow a little better than I would, I still related to Millie's initial disappointment with the accommodations.
I was gratified to see how Entis took what seemed to be two separate assignments and tied them together. This added interest and suspense to the plot because I was not really sure how the two assignments were going end up fitting together. I also enjoyed how she made this third installment of the series more thrilling than its predecessors; I was not sure that Damien and Millie could protect Barbara, and I was waiting to see if Millie or Damien would come to harm.
Readers who have been waiting to know a bit more about Damien's past will not be disappointed because Entis reveals a little bit about his past. It certainly confirmed my suspicions that underneath Damien's swagger was a sensitive soul. This revelation made Damien more substantial as a character, and I think it was a brilliant move on Entis' part to include it in the novel.
The combination of an intriguing and suspenseful plot, witty dialogue, and insights into Damien's past make The Chocolate Labradoodle Caper my favorite book in the Damien Dickens Mystery Series thus far. It compels me to wonder what new adventures Entis has in store for Damien and Millie, and I am looking forward to her next Damien Dickens Mystery!
