This installment didn't disappoint. I think the books get better as time goes by, while my wife disagrees and things they're all fantastic. She is good at figuring out 'whodunnit' most of the time, but not with Borg's well written mysteries. We live in the Pacific Northwest now, but spent most of our lives in the Reno/Tahoe area and just love seeing our favorite areas highlighted. This particular book opens up at one of our favorite locals beaches in Tahoe where we've spent many hours with Cave Rock in plain view.
We also enjoyed seeing all of Owens friends, not the least of which, Spot! If you've ever had the privilege of spending lots of time with a Harlequin Great Dane, you'll know that Borg writes Spot accurately and with every bit of accurate detail. Spot that makes me laugh every time. Those dogs really are great and his good writing represents them accurately and with a lot of obvious love for the breed.
In this book, I was shocked at how well Borg writes little kids! My wife and I just loved getting to know Lily.
Overall we really enjoyed the book and have two more on hand to read, and at least one more to catch up on ;)
