5 Stars


The only thing between Luke Cooper and a murder rap is his dog.

The loss of his job sends Luke crawling back to his hometown with his dog, Bandit. Desperate for cash, he agrees to be the subject of his uncle’s lab experiment.

When he wakes up, his uncle is dead–and his dog is talking to him.

Since the police find only Luke at the scene of the murder, things aren’t looking good for him. Fortunately, Bandit finds a clue that might lead to the true killer.

With the help of his mom, his childhood friend, and his chatty dog, Luke searches for the murderer…but can he find the truth before he ends up in jail?

Who of us have not wished that we could communicate with our dogs and know what they are thinking.  That is exactly what happens to Luke and his dog Bandit.  After an experiment gone wrong, Luke finds his uncle dead and that he can talk to his dog and know what his dog is thinking.  He will need the help of his dog to solve the murder and stay out of jail.

The characters are well rounded and well developed.  I enjoyed getting to meet Luke and Bandit, they make a good team.  His friend Kenny is quite the character, and he is willing to do almost anything to help Luke prove his innocence. There were lots of humorous exchanges between Luke and Kenny.

The author is very talented in his descriptive writing and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The mystery was well plotted and not easily solved.  I was surprised to see who the killer actually was.  

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I cannot wait to read the next one in the series and see what Bandit has to say.  

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book and provided my honest review.

    • Kathi Daley books are shorter and she has a lot of different series that she has written. Meg Muldoon’s books are shorter too, and they are very good. I love her books. Let me think on any more. Hope that helps.
