Thirty-two year old Lexi O’Malley, a boring software programmer by trade, was out of work, out of money, full of attitude and looking for a new career. When her eccentric Aunt Scarlet calls and shames her into helping search for Bubba, her missing, big, dopey, black Lab, she figures she might as well add out of luck to the mix since dog detective wasn’t exactly the great new profession she had in mind.
In the process of tending to her familial obligation, she finds Bubba beaten nearly to death and after Aunt Scarlet’s home is ransacked she accidentally learns her aunt’s handy man is not who he professes to be. While playing amateur sleuth, she’s shot at, pursued by thugs, crashes her car, finds her apartment burned to the ground and discovers that even though she’s short on expertise and not all that brave, she’s a master fibber and can hold her own in a crisis.
After reading two Suspense/Thriller books by Michael Connelly, back-to-back, I was looking for a fun light book to read this week-end.
My favorites are mysteries with humor and this book fit the bill. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I love a good book, especially one that is so much fun. It was a book that held my interest from the first page with great characters and animals. I am an animal lover so I really like the parts about the animals.
I found it a delightful, hilarious, and a laugh-out-loud funny book. I suppose it wouldn't be a book for everyone, but it was just the kind of book I was in the mood for. I've never read a book by this author, D. M. Buckley, before, but would be willing to read her next book in this series, "TWOCAN SAM" the next action adventure by her, arrives in August 2012.
I loved this book so much I am awarding it 5*****
