5.0 out of 5 stars"Fifty Shades of Greyhound" by Sparkle Abbey
Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2014
This is the fifth book in Sparkle Abbey's "Pampered Pets" series. Sparkle Abbey is the pen name of two women: Sparkle is the cat of one of the women, and Abbey is the other author's dog. I am a big fan of these books, and I find them LOL funny and entertaining. While this book is not as funny as the others in the series, I still enjoyed it. The book is not only has a mystery that will keep you guessing, but it touches on the plight of greyhounds once their racing career is over. I highly recommend any of the "Pampered Pets" books, and while you really don't need to read the books in order, it might be helpful to read the earlier ones first.
I absolutely loved this story. First of all I love Italian Greyhounds, ant greyhounds for that matter. They are such sleek elegant creatures. This book portrayed nicely. The story itself was awesome as usual . The characters are great and kept you entertained. Caro Lamont was her usual southern belle. I really enjoyed meeting Sam's grandmother and I hope that maybe in a future book we can revisit the vineyard. If you want a great series this one is it.
4.0 out of 5 starsThis is a good read with there being info on the greyhounds who race and what happens when they have finished their career.

Pets, pets, pets. They always add a add a special touch to any cozy mystery I read. At a event planned for raising money to help displaced greyhounds, a murder occurs. The FBI take over the case from the local police.when a second body is found, there is found a note making a case for suicide. Friends do not believe it was a suicide and began their own investigation. Soon our heroine is working with the authorities to find the killer. The self defense course she was taking comes in handy. You'll enjoy this book as the plot focusses and questions get a answered.
This is an easy read. Characters are vaguely interesting. Descriptions of what everyone is wearing become increasingly annoying - who cares what designer this and that someone has on?!!! Also, who cares about a tiff about a brooch?!!! The name "Caro" repeatedly reminded me of the light syrup and made it difficult to take the heroine in any way seriously! The information relating to the Greyhounds is well written and draws attention to the plight of retired dogs. For this reason, I would recommend anyone who loves dogs and is interested in rescuing animals, to read it.
This was a very entertaining book. I liked the characters and the plot had a nice twist. This book would be great to read at the beach or while on vacation since it is an easy read that keeps you engrossed.
5.0 out of 5 starsAnother interesting and fun read!

I love the way her stories unfold and trying to decide who the bad guy is before he's brought out. Looking forward to the next book You've captured me as a fan! All I can ad is please write faster! I like the bickering between Melinda and Caro. However, I would like to see them work together in at least one book, maybe two aspects of the same mystery. I really enjoy using all the same players in each book, that way the reader gets to feel like they are old friends.
Love this easy to read and fun mystery! Sometimes I just want a cast of likable characters with a fun story, just enough mystery to keep the story moving along. I truly enjoyed this book and I plan on getting more books from this series. I would recommend this book for any age group and I would defiantly buy this book again!
5.0 out of 5 starsIf you like Laurien Berenson's books then you'll enjoy this book.

I love this series! This installment was every bit as good as the previous one. I also read the other series and enjoy the way the author intertwined them through the cousin's ongoing fight over the broach. The characters are well developed and the mysteries make sense and flow at just the right pace.
2.0 out of 5 starsNothing at all to do with greyhounds.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on November 16, 2015
This is a poorly-written common, or garden, crime novel, with a large cast of one-dimensional characters, and random facts about whippets inserted randomly into the text. If you're expecting a story about greyhounds - look elsewhere. The author obviously liked the idea of the title, took a rejected old story, looked up some greyhound facts on the Internet and shuffled the two together to justify the title.
5.0 out of 5 starsI really enjoyed this book and will look up the others in ...

What a lovely summer read. Well-written, with interesting characters and a feasible plot. And to top it off, some furry friends to add colour to the story. I really enjoyed this book and will look up the others in the series.
