Publisher's Summary

Between her boisterous sons and a house full of Poodles, there's never a dull moment for Melanie Travis. But no matter how hectic life gets, she can always pick up the scent of a howling good mystery - and she'll stop at nothing to dig up the truth. It's summer in Connecticut, and Melanie's life has become an endless string of dog shows, soccer camp, and the antics of her energetic toddler. She hardly has time to pay much attention to her Aunt Peg's new protégé, Nick Walden, a self-proclaimed "dog whisperer" with an uncanny gift for decoding dog-speak. The well-heeled dog owners of Fairfield County are lapping up his alleged talents, anxious to discover exactly what their pampered pets are thinking - that is until the pooches start spilling their secrets. When Nick is discovered dead in his home, his sister Claire enlists Melanie to help track down the killer. Now, as she juggles the demands of marriage and motherhood - not to mention her six beloved Poodles - Melanie can scarcely even begin to nose through the growing list of suspects. But just when she thinks she's barking up the wrong tree, she'll find herself face to face with a purebred murderer.

    Story
    "great series, need a different narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Death of a Dog Whisperer the most enjoyable?

    I have loved this series when I read it, but this narrator is just wrong for the series. Her voice is not the right one for this series. I have to turn it off way before I'm ready to stop because her voice gets on my nerves.


    What three words best describe Jessica Almasy’s voice?

    grating, child-like, annoying


    Any additional comments?

    I do not like to give a bad review but felt I honestly needed to voice my opinion because perhaps the author might find a different narrator if several people gave their honest opinions.

    "Disappointed"
    What did you like best about Death of a Dog Whisperer? What did you like least?

    Liked the story but not the reader. The voice just did not fit the main character.

    "Blended family aspect."

    I really loved Nick and the blended family aspect and the story, the talk about the different houses, and the cute sibling scenes. The incredible ring was a delightful addition as well.

    Story
    "Took too long to get to the point"

    This is the first book I've listened to from this author. I've read that it's better to start from the beginning of the series, that may be true. I love dogs, I like mysteries. It wasn't that the characters weren't likeable, this story just took too long to get to the point and seemed to ramble onto bunny trails. Too much about the relationships and family stuff thrown in there. Some people may like that writing style, I guess I like books that get into the mystery and don't talk to much about that peripheral stuff. I didn't finish the book. Narrator has unusual voice, some might not like it, but once you got used to her voice I thought she did a good job.
