©2007 Blaize Clement; (P)2007 Recorded Books
If you are looking for a great mystery but with a lighter flair, look no more. Great first book, hope to see more from this author.
Likes: Cozy mysteries (cats a plus), personal memoirs,not too dark fantasy, books about the brain. Dislikes: Torture, animal cruelty.
I still enjoyed Dixie, her interactions with the various men in her life and with her animal charges. However, I have to say I liked this book much less than the first simply because of the depictions of animal cruelty mentioned. I understand it served to create a portrait of the villain in the book, but I read mysteries with a pet sitting heroine because I love animals and therefore I am bothered by descriptions of cruelty, even though they were not particularly graphic ones. Still enjoyed the characters enough to read the next one. Wish they had it on Audible!
Don't know the print version
It was good and interesting. Did build suspense
When she euthanised the dachsund and got mad at her owners
No - I drew it out
I'll keep reading her
I was excited to see Dixie is coming out of her mourning. This will be interesting to watch this unfold. I also really love how Blaize Clement develops the animal's personality and you get a good picture of the animals.
Not on the edge, but very interested and engaged. I loved "the snake" episode - very creative and Paco was funny.
Her voice fits in perfectly. Please keep her for the other books from the series that your are going to record!
yes, I cried when she had to put down little Maime, the dachshund. It brought back memories.
These are not mind twister mysteries. They are just a very enjoyable "read" a way to relax while you are doing something else that doesn't require your concentration.
Audible, get the rest of this series recorded!
