I received a copy of Dogged from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Description: From the Publisher
Former fashion model, and now tenured professor at a small college, Annabelle C. Doyle ("Acie") is part of a group trying to establish a wildlife sanctuary on a donated parcel of land. When the donor dies under unusual circumstances, the land endowment is put in jeopardy.
Unwillingly, Acie and fellow professor Ike Adler are pulled into the investigation. But when the donor’s heir is found dead—after arguing with Acie and Ike—they're suddenly in the spotlight and under suspicion.
Amidst the investigation, Acie is coerced into coming out of retirement to work on a fashion shoot on campus—a shoot that turns into a real "shoot," with Ike in the crosshairs. Acie may lose not only a chance for the love of her lifetime—she may lose her life.
There was little to appeal to me about this book until I read the description which is why I placed it above. The Classic Romance part made me imagine an old sixties romance which was fine when I was thirteen, but not today. The Cover made me think of the old Earl Stanley Garner covers on his Perry Mason novels. Again adequate at twelve, but not any more. Then I read the blurb above and it piqued my interest and I took a chance. I am glad I did. There is a romantic element, but the core of the story is the mystery.
Mature characters that are well established in life and their emotions lead the cast. Their are younger characters as well and a few moments of comic relief. On the whole I found the book flows smoothly and quickly. The plot was well done and thought out. I would definitely read another book with these characters.
This book had me guessing and jumping from one suspect to the next. I enjoyed every minute. It had loads of humor and memorable characters as well as many nail biting moments. I would love to read more books by this author. Highly recommended!
Thank you Netgalley and Wild Rose Press for giving me the opportunity to read (for free) and review this book.
