How could anybody steal a dog like Gizmo...?
When petty criminals "Flash Harry" Smith and Jack ("The Lad") Jones start nicking dogs, they soon realise they’ve bitten off more than they can chew...
Their victim, Elizabeth Parker-Smyth, is a high-flying movie producer with a Grand Design of a house and a designer dog to match. Their hostages, Gizmo and Doodle, are the co-stars of her next film: "Nobody’s Poodle". Their nemesis, Annie Capello, is a quirky, big-hearted pet detective, who tracks the dognappers through cyberspace and finds herself entangled in their shenanigans.
Then there are the two pairs of star-crossed lovers. One couple may be human and the other canine, but they share similar memories of a whirlwind romance: “We’ll always have Stoke Newington".
Somebody’s Doodle is a fast-moving, heady mix of crime, humour, romance, and some wooftastic dogs. As it races towards the climax, the human protagonists search for truth and reconciliation and glimpse what we can all learn from Man’s Best Friend.

Dog napped adventure
This is the first book by this author that I have read or listened to but I actually enjoyed it. It took me a little while to get into the story because at the start you were introduced to a lot of characters, this meant the story jumped around following them. You are treated to a number of perspectives as the story unfolds which also includes the dogs conversation with each other and explains the jumping. But once I got the characters striaght it unfolded nicely and is a light hearted doggy kidnapping with a happy ending for most of the characters. The characters grew on me and by the end of the book I liked them all. I would say the book has a moral to the story that everybody should learn.
Elizabeth is a high flying movie producer and after reading a book on the flight home from a business trip she decides to reconnect with daughter by getting a dog. Unprepared for owning a dog, the dog soon gets forgotten until she comes up with the idea of her dog co staring in a new film. At the same time Harry and Jack short of cash comes.up with a side fire way to make some, by stealing dogs and claiming the reward money for there safe return. The first dog napping goes well and Jack is soon looking for another dog, When he sees Doodle a posh spoilt dog with a less than attentive dog walked and a p!an is hatched. Jack and Harry steal Doodle from the swanky dog hotel she is staying at before the film goes into production the problem is she is staying with her do star and the two thieves find themselves in charge of two dogs. Two top dogs should mean twice the money right? They just have to get the owners to pay.
The narrator was the other reason I struggled with the book at the start. He made some of the characters sound whiney or close to tears when I don't think they were meant to. I did get use to the voice by the end of the book.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
