This week’s feature is an older book…circa 1997. Ok, so older but not that old! And doing research on the author realized she died in 2006. Guess that means no more books in this series, but there are 6 to enjoy.
Anywho…the book is Delilah Doolittle and the Purloined Pooch and the author is Patricia Guiver.
Sunny Southern California seems an unlikely place for a British widow to call home. But pet detective Delilah Doolittle is probably the least eccentric–if not the most civilized–of Surf City’s resident population. With the astute Doberman pinscher Watson sniffing out clues, Delilah follows the trails of missing animals, which often lead to the worst of human nature. The first thrilling pet detective mystery has Delilah Doolittle searching for a champion German shepherd. But when she finds a murdered man instead, it’s up to Delilah to collar a killer!
I love dogs, so any book with a dog in it is usually a winner with me. The book started off a bit slow for me but once I got into the story I really enjoyed the story. I didn’t figure out the killer and was suprised when this person was revealed. Definitely not who I was expecting! I’m not sure if I will continue with this series since there are so many books to read, but it is worth a read.
