Didi Quinn Nightingale has just moved her vetrinary practice to her late mother's house. But once there finds out that her friend Dick Obey died under terrible circumstances. But Didi suspects foul play. She takes you along on a wild ride of mystery, suspense. It keeps you guessing throughout the entire book. I never suspected the person who did it, but you'll have to read to find out yourself!

This is definitely a different series, and there are all kinds of different animals that the vet Deirdre Quinn looks after in her small rural New York practice. This is a different take on sleuthing, as Ms. Quinn uses her veterinarian knowledge to solve mysteries. In this book, one of her friends seems to have been killed by wild dogs when he supposedly fell into a drunken stupor one night, but Deirdre knows its murder, and she needs to prove that to the police in order to get help to catch a killer. This series shows some promise, and I'm hoping that some of the characters will "flesh out" in subsequent books. If I have one criticism it was that the characters are not multi-dimensional. I will continue to read the series though because I love the animal angle.

Dr. Nightingale Comes Home is full of interesting charachters with the major themes of loving animals and good friends. The lead charachter is not perfect and quite edgy with people which makes her an interesting heroin. I enjoyed the book but it was not a page turner that I stayed up late to read.
