Terrible terrible terrible!!! Can't begin to explain how terrible! :(
First of all an innocent animal should never be abused in any form.. especially not sexually!!! What a terrible thing to put in a book!!
Other than that it was too chaotic and too much confusion to even focus on the darn story let alone care about any of the characters!! I think I only liked Chester, the 8 year old boy next door.
I hate to say bad things, but I just couldn't like this one.. I will never read this author again..
Description from the publisher:
Still reeling from her husband's death, thirty-three-year-old realtor Whiskey Mattimoe is adjusting to a new life, which includes the embarrassing purse-snatching antics of her mischievious Afghan hound. That's bad for business, but not as bad as having clients die on the premises. When one of her properties turns into a murder scene, Whiskey becomes hopelessly tangled in a devious scheme involving identity fraud and priceless art.
Dodging a house fire, break-ins, and attempts on her life, Whiskey manages to keep her sense of humor throughout the chaos with help from a part-time police force, her eight-year-old neighbor, and other eccentric characters in the Lake Michigan resort town of Magnet Springs.
This fast-paced, darkly comic tale is the first in a series of mysteries featuring the amateur sleuthing of Whiskey Mattimoe.
