1) When the detective got bit after Caro - it's worded perfectly - I laughed out loud! (there are more than a few of those in the book - the laugh out loud parts)
2) I love the premise and that the books will tag team the cousins - a fun idea and executed perfectly via the brooch!
3) The authors descriptions are excellent; I feel like I've now been to Laguna, and met those crazy people!
Give this book a shot; you'll be glad you did!
In spite of the major stumbles (children who have one birth parent in common are HALF siblings, not STEP siblings; Texas HAS 367 miles of beautiful gulf coastline--the heroine could NOT have grown up in land-locked Texas. Maybe Oklahoma?) and even with the minor ones (used cajones instead of cojones, used poured when pored was meant, used armature racer when I think amateur is the word meant) I still liked the story but I thought the dog psychiatrist was EXTREMELY dense about the actions of the dogs in far too many instances. I sure wouldn't trust her with my dog.
I am hoping that someone takes the time to read the next books for both context and story and fills the potholes so I can really read with enjoyment.
A few hours later, Homicide Detective Judd Malone arrives at Caro's home to question her as the last known person to have seen Kevin alive. She asks him about the dogs who he says are upset locked out on the patio awaiting transportation to the Animal Shelter. Stunned Caro proves her innocence but as a second order effect inadvertently leads to the arrest of her best friend, former movie star Diana Knight who relishes the limelight just in time for the Fur Ball annual animal rescue fundraiser. Realizing ditzy Di thrives on the PR; Caro investigates upsetting barking Detective Malone.
Though out of the amateur sleuth script, this is a fun lighthearted murder investigation starring a former Texas psychologist who turned from people to animals as the latters' bites are easier to cope with. Caro is a wonderful detective who conducts her inquiries with the help of the barking canine crowd. Sub-genre fans will enjoy her antics as she sets out to prove her BFF is innocent while the cop tells her to stay out of the investigation or stay in jail with Di.

Based in Laguna Beach, this mystery is a bit too obvious. Also I'm NOT into clothes and shoes like the Orange County crowd, but I did enjoy the over the top dogs.Published 16 days ago by Susie Davidson
I love stories that include animals, especially if they live. No bad language or immorality other than murder, lying and fur balls.Published 21 days ago by Cando
