Audible Editor Reviews

Drop Dead on Recall, the first book of Sheila Webster Boneham’s new Animals in Focus mystery series, is a fun, fast-paced murder mystery set in the surprisingly intrigue-filled world of competitive dog showing - a sure-fire win for any animal-loving mystery buffs out there!

Janet MacPhail, the main character of the work, is made eminently relatable by the performance of actor Erin Mallon, whose charming reading makes it easy to root for the heroine of this engaging audiobook. Mallon guides listeners deftly through Janet’s life, from the concerns of tending to her ailing mother, to a budding romance with a handsome dog handler, and right through to a murder case in which Janet may be a suspected killer...or even the next one killed.

Publisher's Summary

The passions aroused by canine competition can inspire violent fantasies. But when a talented handler falls flat on her face during the obedience trials, Australian Shepherd lover Janet MacPhail can hardly believe someone would actually resort to murder.

As she takes care of her mother and falls for a hunky black Lab owner, the last thing Janet needs is to find out she's become a "person of interest." Nosing around for clues that might clear her good name, Janet and her friends - Australian Shepherd Jay, tabby cat Leo, and eccentric neighbor Goldie Sunshine - discover the hard way that killers don't like snoops. And it soon becomes apparent that the next victim might just be Janet herself.

    "A delightful surprise"

    I'm not an animal lover, and I had reservations about the animal aspect of this story. I'm happy I gave this book a chance.This was an interesting book with characters that I really enjoyed getting to know. The plot moved along at a nice pace and the mystery had several twist and turns. This is a very good way to spend a lazy day.

    "Ok story"

    This was an okay story. It was probably a little too long, a little too descriptive for me. I like my books to move a little faster. Just a preference. I am a dog lover. I did like the interaction between the main character and her dog. The mystery part was okay, again not very compelling of a mystery though.
