How can you not love Bernie and Chet the Jet?

This is a Bernie and Chet mystery as they all are. I remember when the first of the series came out. So much fun! Different than other stories that are out they are all seen and told from the dog, Chet's point of view. But as much as I loved the story i found out they needed space and time between them to enjoy fully and not be annoyed at much of the same ol' same ol' jokes and one liners of Chet's. So i spaced them out and happy I did that & not just just give up on the series. Given enough space the jokes are funny again. Nothing is ever like the first but I find these are good to cleanse my mind between books with too many curse words and too much sex not enough plot! Chet gives a nice clean family enjoyable story. Hard to find these days! The narrator Jim Frangione is a perfect Chet. He gives him a great voice not a dopey animal character voice as other might when voicing for a dog. JF has been a favorite of mine for a very long time I can't think of anything I didn't like that he read for. Definitely one of those narrators that I choose the story BECAUSE he is reading it! He does the popular Vampire series of JD Ward. Another series he has become THE VOICE for! Would be hard to switch him out of it. I would go to print of the series of he no longer was the narrator.
If you're looking for a fun time that isn't dumbed down then give Bernie
and Chet a try. Really enjoyable full of laugh out loud moments!

Plot discrepancy cleared up

In A Cat Was Involved, I was confused by Chet and Bernie meeting when Bernie already has an ex-wife, whereas other books conflicted with that. This story clarifies the time line of Bernie's personal life. Not much suspense in this one, but nothing cheers me up more than hearing Jim Frangione as Chet.

A great way to get a job done.

Chet and Bernie keep me company while I go back and forth to get things done.

didn't get the gist of the case

We love Chet no matter what happens and what he and Bernie have to do. This case isn't really clear, can't tell who needs to know what, but Chet is tip top just the same. This is fine if you need some more Chet n Bernie, but not really anything great. Jim Frangione does his usual waggingly optimistic job on the narration, but can't save the story.

Solved the problem.

This story solves the problem I had with "A Cat Was Involved", namely that Leda amd Bernie were already split up when Chet and Bernie hooked up.

Guess I shoulda listened to this one first....

Short Funny Dog Detective Story

If you read "Short Funny Dog Detective Story" and think - Oh that might be nice, you will likely enjoy this book. If you think "Ee gads" you should likely skip it. I modestly enjoyed it. This is not quite a kids book (as it has slight adult humor) but you have to enjoy the story from the various humorously limited dog perspectives. The narration is great (maybe the best part).

Way overpriced

Even on sale, these one-hour long short stories are ridiculously more expensive than the full-length version. I enjoyed the story and performance a lot but after doing the math of cost per hour of entertainment, I felt really ripped off.

I thought this was for kids!

This book is by Spencer Quinn and the other books by him are harmless kids books I my Daughter was listening to this and she told me the F-Bomb was in it!! My daughter loves audibles and I was just disappointed in the author for letting this kids book have REALLY bad words in it. This was over all DISAPPOINTING!
