As any cozy fan might predict, local law enforcement fails to take her seriously so she is forced to investigate the cases of missing dogs and murders on her own. With the help of a quirky best friend, a fellow Brit with a sketchy past, and her faithful dog Watson, Delilah slowly unravels the truth.
This book is a pretty typical cozy, but some of the dialogue is snappy and the human and canine characters are appealing enough to hook dog lovers.
make a living as a pet detective. Delilah Doolittle and her assistant,
Watson the Doberman, have been hired to locate a missing German Shepherd,
Herbert Fitzgherbert. Delilah and Watson start their investigation in
Fitzherbert's home where they find a human corpse wearing an electric dog
Though she will continue her hunt for the missing canine, Delilah
promises the police that she will stay out of their investigation of the
murdered human. However, Delilah quickly realizes that Herbert's trail
leaves her assisting the reluctant law enforcement officials. As she gets
closer to locating Herbert, Delilah also gets closer to identifying the
killer since both cases are linked.
DELILAH DOOLITTLE AND THE PURLOINED POOCH is a humorous pet detective
mystery that will be enjoyed by dog lovers and fans of Ace Ventura (even if
Delilah is only a ten of hearts). Patricia Guiver shows that she has
talent in her debut novel, but allows her heroine to be a bit too long
winded (I presume that a few more bows from Watson would have helped) and
the story line to simple for who-done-it purists.
