Audible Editor Reviews

This is the second book in author Sheila Webser Boneham's imaginative series entitled Animals in Focus. The protagonists are dog-loving photographers and their charming canines. The mystery: a blood-soaked bag found on the edge of a lake, containing a feather and a 100-dollar bill. Narrator Erin Mallon performs this murder mystery well, her dramatic, almost whispery voice, compounding the story's drama. The audiobook is full of compelling, everyday detail about the lives of people and their dogs, but also has unexpected encounters with the world of mysticism and the occult. Both dog lovers and mystery lovers will enjoy the exiting narration.

Publisher's Summary

For Janet MacPhail, photographing retrievers in training is the perfect way to spend an evening. But a photo session at Twisted Lake takes a peculiar turn as Drake, her friend Tom's Labrador, fetches a blood-soaked bag holding an exotic feather and a torn $100 bill. When one of her photography students turns up dead at the lake, Janet investigates a secretive retreat center with help from Australian Shepherd Jay and her quirky neighbor Goldie. Between dog-training classes, photo assignments, and romantic interludes with Tom, Janet is determined to get to the bottom of things before another victim's wings are clipped for good.

    "Another enjoyable story"

    Sheila Boneham has written another enjoyable story. I enjoy the use of dogs and cats in her stories. She has a way of making them important characters rather than just pets. Erin Mallon does a beautiful job of bringing all the characters to life, and making different characters sound different, so it's easy to tell them from the others. This is a winning combo and I hope there're many more to follow.

    "Love dogs?"

    Great story lots of lovely dogs and their owners. Narrator not all that good her voice had very little range and more suited to put you to sleep than to sustain your attention.
