Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
So this was my first foray into the cozy mystery genre, and it was really cute. Like, super cute. I figured, how can a puppy dog themed mystery story go wrong? And sure enough, whatever flaws this book had were certainly forgivable, because doggies.
The plot was... I don't know, DOGGIES
The characters were... Uhhhmm, DOGGIES
The murderer was... Who cares, DOGGIES
I will say that this would probably have been better in a text format than on audio, because the performance by reader Jeanie Kanaley was substandard. The pacing was excruciatingly slow with a very careful enunciation of every word, her voice was almost girlish, and her European accents were... not like any I've heard in real life.
