When Retta's "gentleman friend" is accused of murder, the Sleuth Sisters take on the case. Winston Darrow is a charmer, but his secrets create trouble that spills onto Retta, Barb, Faye, and even police chief Rory Neuencamp. Someone is out to get Win, someone he claims is the real killer. While Retta admits Win is less trustworthy than her daffy Newfoundland dog, she insists he's not a murderer. Dogs become an issue when Faye rescues a mutt she finds hurt on the road.

Would you consider the audio edition of 3 Sleuths, 2 Dogs, 1 Murder: A Sleuth Sisters Mystery to be better than the print version?

I very much enjoyed the experience of listening to this story rather than reading it, as Anne Jacques, Laura Bednarski, and Judy Blue characterized the three sisters beautifully with their voices. It was wonderful to have such a diversity of vocal talent and stylings as the chapters rotated between the three sister's perspectives.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Retta as her sassy initiative to butt-in even when it frustrates her sisters makes for great humor and contrast in the story. Retta is bold, sometimes annoying, but always a strong and intriguing personality in the narrative.

Any additional comments?

This book is fun, humorous, compelling, and expertly narrated.
