My Review

We’re back with the usual suspects, er, I mean characters, but where are they? Well, the men are all going fishing, spending some male bonding time. No crying allowed. And the women are attending an authors award ceremony at a posh hotel, being pampered, wined and dined in the presidential suite.

The pets, you ask? Oh yes, they’re along for the adventures. Gnarly and Storm are with the men.  There are a couple of scenes where I laughed out loud. One is an incident with a door that involves Mac and Gnarly. Another is the fishing contest where the only ones who caught any were Gnarly and Storm. And I must share one more. There’s the case of the vanishing cheese balls. If you’ve met these canines before, I think you can guess who the culprit is. Then again…maybe not. My son came in my room to see what was so funny.

And Spencer and Monique are with the women, being spoiled rotten. Spencer has their intimidating looking private concierge, Garth, wrapped around her little paw with just a wag of her tail. And Monique! Oh yes. I finally get to know her personality. You wouldn’t expect one for her species, but she brings her own brand of mischief.

The guys are busy solving a murder, the women are trying to prevent one, and the critters…. they’re probably laughing at the silly humans.

Can you read this without having read the other books? I’d encourage you to start at the beginning so you don’t miss out on the fun, but yes, you can. Each story has a different plot and Lauren provides a break down list of all of the character’s and how they connect.

Once again, I’m charmed and in love with this series. Keep bringing them, Lauren.

5 Stars
