This lovely little book turned out to be quite a suspenseful thriller/mystery.
We are immersed in the world of competitive dog shows and it’s clear that the author has a lot of experience with the subject. It is a tongue in the cheek look at the community surrounding the sport. The characters are big and colourful and very entertaining. The mystery of the missing dogs is thoroughly intriguing.
It’s young people investigating and it has all the fun and chipper banter expected from the genre.
The ending was a proper shock. Not that the reveal blindsided me. It was just a level up from what I expected from a relatively light hearted book.
It ended quite fast after the big reveal and I would have like to see more of the consequences following it. More denouement, but it is a small and fast pace book and it’s not a big problem.
In conclusion it was an enjoyable and adorable read and a proper mystery novella. And I love the title.
This book was snatched from under my nose by my mother who wanted to read it too. Her verdict is: “Very cute and adorable – could not put it down.”
