Review Of Off The Chain

Off The  Chain

Gone To The Dogs, Book 1

Janice Thompson

5 Stars


The Town of Brenham, Texas, Has Gone to the Dogs!

Curl up with your pup and sink into a delightful small-town mystery as riddles and rescues stack up in book one of a new cozy mystery series.

Marigold Evans’ first attempt at rescuing an abandoned pooch lands her in a drainage pipe in Brenham Texas. . .and almost in jail, until Parker Jenson comes to her rescue. Then a bad day only gets worse as the Lone Star Vet Clinic, where they both work, is vandalized and the list of suspects starts to climb. With the help of her fellow employees, Marigold sets out to simultaneously solve the crime, rehab the rescued dog, and help more dogs in crisis. But why would anyone continue to work against all their good efforts?

This is the first book in the Gone To The Dogs Series.  It was a good read and had what I look for in a cozy-type book: fun characters, a great setting, a good mystery to solve, and adorable animals.  

The characters are well rounded and well rounded.  The people who work at the clinic are great people and they love animals completely. Mari, Cassidy, Parker and Tyler are trying their best to help all in their care and make a difference.  And Grandma Peach was quite a character.

 There is a lot of action taking place and much of it will make you smile.  The writing style flows smoothly and the book was an easy read.  There are good messages contained within the book.  I enjoyed this book so much and  I am looking forward to reading the second book in the series when it comes out.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher,  Barbour Publishing, and NetGalley, which I greatly appreciate.
