The reader is plunged into the story from the first chapter. This is not a "can't put it down" type mystery, but it is definitely one where the reader will want to continue reading to find out who the killer is.
While the novel was firmly entrenched in the "cozy mystery" genre, there was not a lot of boring filler. There was a lot of information about dog breeding and rescue organizations. However, it was so skillfully interwoven into the story, that I almost didn't realize how much information I was learning. Also, the author did a great job of not overstepping the line between giving information necessary for the plot and just proseletyzing on a favorite topic.
The mystery was interesting and definitely well-planned. My only issue with it was Dianne's epiphany regarding one of her dog's knowledge. It just didn't really make sense. That's really all I can say without giving anything away. That one thing didn't spoil anything at all and could easily have just been left out.
There was a romantic interest in the novel. However, it was downplayed considerably. I felt there could have been a little more play given to that thread.
Character Development: 4 3/4 Stars
Dianne was an interesting character, if a bit shallow. By that, I mean that I didn't really learn much about her outside of her interactions with dogs. Her actions and interactions were realistic, though, so she was definitely a good fit for this novel.
One thing I really enjoyed about this novel was that the dogs were "real". They weren't circus dogs and didn't do amazing tricks. They weren't genius dogs that astound humans with their intelligence. They were completely believable animals.Read more ›
I am a dog-lover, and I think anyone who loves dogs, especially rottweilers, will enjoy this mystery. The dogs play an integral role in the story in a realistic manner.
My advice would be to check this book out, you won't be disappointed!
P.S. I don't typically write glowing reviews. I felt compelled after reading this gem.
I had given up reading rescue animal stories because they so often fall into either terminal cuteness or shrill preachiness. This book did neither; but presented a solid mystery wrapped around a feisty narrator and her dogs in a believable rescue environment.
Very well done!
As an animal rescuer myself, I enjoyed the dog rescue background, and as a lover of big dogs I adored the Rotties. But more than that I enjoyed the tight plotting; clever dialogue and deft characterisation. As a character Dianne is appealing and interesting and I'd happily read more of her adventures.
Obviously, a lot of people liked it a lot, so I'm willing to accept the possibility that it just wasn't my cup of tea. If you purchase it, I hope you enjoy it more than I did.
