~Reading is my Superpower

Intent on getting their two mischievous dogs under control, Emory Martinez and her half sister, Vannie, join a group dog training program led by Shawn Parker. With a graduation certificate just within grasp and a party to celebrate their hard-won achievements, what could go wrong? For starters, their two dogs have decided to wreak havoc during the party and tempers flare. It turns out not everyone is pleased with the dog trainer and his mother, the condo association president. Whispers of the mother and son’s misbehavior, or worse, fly amongst the barks, whines, and growls of the canines.


The characters are well rounded and well developed.  Emory, Vannie and Tillie get along very well and are always happy to play sleuths when the need arises.  And the need arises when the condo homeowners president is found murdered.  And when her son is also murdered they know they are in for some intense snooping. Let’s see if they are up to the job. 

The author is very talented in her descriptive writing and these descriptions kept me engaged throughout the entire book.The writing style flows smoothly and the book is an easy read.  The mystery is well plotted and it was difficult to solve.   

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted cozy mystery.  I really like this series and I cannot wait to read the next one.

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