Lynn


An admitted bookaholic.  (Sorry, I can't make the 12-step meeting, too busy reading.)  I love mysteries, biographies and travel stories the best.  I also read science fiction, fantasy, Japanese history, children's books and, basically, any book that catches my interest.

The start of a great series! Chet, K-9 school dropout, and Bernie, down-on-his-luck PI, are a winning team. Love that the story is told from Chet's point of view. Spencer Quinn lets Chet be a big help while remaining basically a dog. Bernie is just as good in his flawed, human way.
