Corgis Rule!

We have here a sad-sack widower who tragically lost the love of his life six months ago and takes advantage of an inheritance to start over. Suddenly he finds himself a dog owner and up to his neck in trouble--and he hasn't even been in town for 24 hours!

Perfectly narrated by Bob Johnson, you could be actually listening to the voice of our hero as he shares his story. Murder, mystery, humor, romance . . . and dogs! What more could you want?

Case of the One-Eyed Tiger

Zack Anderson didn’t have a very warm welcome to his new town. Within hours of arriving, he found himself as the main suspect in a robbery and murder. One positive thing that happened was that he adopted a corgi named Sherlock. Sherlock certainly lived up to his name, as he had a real knack for discovering clues.

This cozy mystery actually kept me guessing up until things were starting to be revealed. I’m looking forward to seeing where this new series goes!

Humor, wit, and fun!

I don't read a whole lot of mysteries, but I do enjoy them from time to time. The voice of this one was a bit odd, as well as the narrator. But after a few hours, I grew to like it. The style is different, but fun. The dog was fun as well, though I mostly consider dogs that small to be footballs rather than dogs. I liked how the story unraveled, and how I wasn't able to guess the "who did it" until it was upon me. Very well done. I look forward to looking at the rest of this series.

Smart don

Loved it. This had a great story line and the characters are just fantastic. I love Sherlock and how he led them to clues to the murders and theft. I hope to read/listen to more in this series. The narrator, Bob Johnson, did great job. I was gifted this book in exchange for an honest review.

So entertaining

I listened to this audiobook during a particularly boring drive througt Nebraska. Time flew by and I'm sorely disappointed that the next Corgi Files book isn't available yet.
The Case of the One-Eyed Tiger was engaging and entertaining. The characters are well-drawn and I want to know more about them in the next story. And the Corgi, Sherlock, grabbed me from the first intro, as he asked to be adopted.
One warning: there is some cursing in the story, although not anything too awful. If not for that, this would be PG.

Loved everything about this!!

The story and narrations were perfect together. Loved the psychic dog portrayal and the learning curve Zack had to go on. loved the back and forth of "I'll get back to this later..." It was like a good buddy telling you a great story. And about those swear words--There were apologies extended to the affronted characters, and really this was banter among friends. Can't wait for the next!
I was provided this audio book at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBoom dot com.

Nice beginning to a new series

Jeffrey Pool has written a nice story for the beginning to a new series. The characters were well developed and the storyline was original. I’ve had corgis before and the corgi in this story drew me into buying the audiobook. I recommend this to cozy mystery fans.

Corgi named Sherlock!

Zach Anderson inherits his late wife's aunt's vineyard in Oregan. Within a few hours of moving, he finds himself the new owner of a rescue dog - a Corgi named Sherlock. (Adorable!) Unfortunately, he also is the target of a bitter Abigail who wants the vineyard, gets drawn into a murder investigation, and is searching for a lost sculpture. I like how Zach "breaks the fourth wall" and addresses the readers directly. The cast of characters is colorful and the setting (small town, vineyards) adds a lot of texture to the story. I'm looking forward to the next story!

Great Story!

I so enjoyed this fun listen by J.M. Poole. The story is an original standalone listen. I liked how the author wove wit and humor into this cozy listen and reversed some roles. The imagery in the story was awesome. I found some characters endearing, while others were not. Bob Johnson did a great performance with the various characters. I requested this review copy audiobook. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

Perfect Murder Mystery for Dog Lovers everywhere

A man and his dog called Sherlock.

This book is reminiscent of Qwilleran books who had his cat called Koko each and every one I own and love and have often wished someone would write a similar series with a dog or two and Jeffrey Poole has.

There are not so many cosy murder mysteries out there where the main character is a man which makes a nice change yet it works so well.

The story is told in the first person by Zac the main character who has a slightly unusual way of earning a living.

The narrator Bob Johnson really does bring Zac alive to me.

I love the style of the writing so I would enjoy reading the book but the way the narrator portrays Zac really is the icing on the cake.

Before I have finished this book I was looking on Audible to see if there were any more of the series available but only found one - which I bought. I am really hoping that more books in the series will soon be made available - I will be checking frequently.

The dog is not the usual breed you come across in stories and if the author is not a dog lover he has done his research into dogs and his characters give information about them that any true dog lovers know but love to hear others say. Zac although always had liked dogs had never owned one and when he found himself suddenly a dog parent is constantly surprised by his dogs cleverness and people around him assure him he is totally underestimating how brilliant and wonderful dogs are - yes I am a total dog lover so any book in which dogs are seen as almost better than humans in certain circumstances is going to get the thumbs up from me even if the actual story is not to my taste

BUT this story is not its a great little murder mystery with a good storyline and a totally believable plot with no suspending of belief needed.

I am totally in love with Sherlock and Zac is certainly a guy I would love to know ( just don't tell my husband).

I am listening to the second book as I am typing this and Oh please Audible record the rest so those of us who are hooked on audiobooks can enjoy more of both Jeffery and Bobs combination.

I was given this book in the hope I would give a review and sadly it languished on my to listen to list for few months before I actually listened to it and for this, I am sorry to both the author and narrator and for myself as I missed out on this lovely book for so long.

Meet your new daddy.

A book filled with querky characters, fun and a nice little mystery, too.
Zack Anderson is an author. His books, sexy romance novels enjoyed by both men and women, sell well. At least, they did until the death of his wife in a car crash six months before. Since then his writing seems to have fallen flat. So when he becomes the beneficiary of an estate, with winery, thanks to his wife's great aunt, he decides to make a new start and move to Oregon. It changes his whole life as he reconnects with an old friend, makes some new ones, and some enemies, aquires a remarkable corgi named, appropriately, Sherlock - and gets arrested for murder on his first day there.

This is a well constructed book, deliciously written in the first person, with excellent characterisation and a twisty little plot set in very small town Oregon where everyone knows almost everyone else's business. Bob Johnson becomes self confessed 'lazy' author Zack as he faces up to slightly insane locals and gets to know, and enjoy, his new home town and learn a little about wine in a place boasting 24 wineries and which holds an annual wine tasting festival which brings in tourists by the bus load. The text is natural, humourous and this is fully expressed in Mr.Johnson's warm narration, his voice full of cadence and expression: a very believable, likeable Zack.

At my request, I was really fortunate to be gifted a complimentary copy of the Case of the One Eyed Tiger, by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. It was a very enjoyable delight, both book and narrator's performance working together perfectly. A definite recommend to anyone (other than those who only like furious and bloody action). And I will definitely be looking out for more to come in the future.

Witty mystery for dog lovers

I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.

I have to say I was gripped by this story from the beginning as I found the main character to be sympathetic, understandable and funny in equal measures. The author deliberately makes the character slightly dim about technology to explain certain plot devices, and the best part is that it's completely believable. I have friends who act the same way with their smart phones and look at technology as if it's something to be scared of.

Having been a dog lover all my life and whose friends are dog lovers, I recognised behaviours in the main character that are enacted in real life, talking to your dog as if it understands you, assigning them human emotions, and finding your life is taken over by your dog, willingly or not.

The narrator does a good job in defining the characters and certainly had a good tone for this story. The song Natalie could have ruined the light hearted nature comedic aspects, like the mouse, but Bob's voice picked out the right tones at the right time.

Loved this and would be more than happy to read more of this author's work.
