This is a fun mystery with thefts, alcohol problems (not the dog or the hero), murder, secrets, a temporary mayorship, and all set in a Norse country small town in Minnesota. King Harald finds erotic gnomes, then a body, tells his part of the story, performs heroically. Andy, divorced once and dumped once, is an artist, works as host in his sister's upscale cafe, is friends with many interesting people, is the one who is partners with King Harald, gets coerced into becoming temporary mayor, is dragged into the murder and investigation. This book is interesting, an easy fun read with lots of laughs along the way.
Thanks to LibraryThing giveaways.
I love this series, both because I'm crazy fond of the adorable protagonist, that "big mutt" HARALD, but also due to the author's noted talent in uncovering character. In addition to the ongoing series characters, in each book the author introduces new background characters who of course come trailing their own engrossing plots and mysteries. This time, mischievous and always curious Harald uncovers hidden large-denomination cash; and one of the cafe's best customers accuses her recently-ex of stealing and selling a valuable historical letter belonging to her family.
Harald is a winner, and so is the series that bears his name.
Thanks to the author for generously providing a digital review copy, at no remuneration.
But with the best laid plans, Andy is finding it increasingly difficult. But what does he expect when he's the "go-to guy"? For starters his elderly neighbors (Elsie and Emma) want him to have a few words with a professor/historian who's convinced they're twins of ill repute. He does but Andy learns from Lance Robeson - a man he met whilst delivering a lunch order who was having a heck of fight with his ex-wife at the time - that the professor has some solid facts.
Then his parents, taking a short break from their RV vacation, ask him to entertain a couple they met on their trip. Mona is easy enough to get on with but her husband, Joe is annoying - he has to be the person who's done one better.
His Aunt Bev heavily suggests that he takes the role of interim Mayor until her son, Myron (Ronnie) returns home to take up the role. Andy mulls it over but before he has a chance to say no to his aunt, his friend shows him a campaign poster of sorts that his aunt has put together. Looks like he won't have a chance to decline the proposal now.
And then to top things off, King Harald, Andy's loyal pooch, has a penchant for thievery - a thousand dollar note hidden in a famous yellow magazine and a risque garden gnome. He has to return them to the rightful owners. However, questions arise. How did his sweet old neighbor have a thousand dollar note? Is it somehow connected to Professor Robeson?
In no time at all, the affable large mutt detects a familiar smell. One that he's not too keen on but he knows. And then he stumbles upon a body. Somehow the boss isn't going to be too happy about this.
The reluctant crime-finding duo try their hardest not to get too involved in this latest murder. Thankfully a full plate of art, a Finnish lover with a secret, politics, squirrels and entertaining friends doesn't lend to to much investigating.
Anders curiosity is piqued and wants to know if Elsie or Emma did have a colorful past. They must have more of those bills stashed in the National Geographic magazines. He hopes they're not involved, they're sweet old women. But more than that he hopes Harald keeps his nose out of trouble!
Audry's canine cosy is an exciting yet laid back quick read. His characters are solid and likable, especially Harald. The author writes the dog's perspective on the murderous situation adding a great dimension to the story. Well written in an easy style and wonderful language, if it's your first time meeting the lovable dog, I suggest reading his first adventure. A highly recommended read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author to review. The opinions expressed are my own and I am not required to give a positive critique.
We get to know Andy so much better in this installment, I said in my previous review that he needed to bloom and bloom he did. He is taking a very active role in his sister’s new venture and his aunt Bev has a plan that should take up the remainder of his free time. His romantic life takes a very eventful turn too. Sometimes he doesn’t need Herald’s help to get into sticky situations.
King Harald continues to steal the show and out hearts. He gets into a bit of trouble and helps Andy learn some secrets about the dear ladies next door.
And as in the last book there is so much more….
This is an outstanding follow up to The Karma of King Harald. It is an easy read with fantastic dialogue and a top-notch whodunit. The characters are fun and engaging. I so love Harald. There is plenty of mystery, mayhem, and humor and Andy and Harald are in the middle of it. This was one of those books that once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. Now I want more. I can’t wait for Harald and Andy’s next adventure.
