Summer is for the Dogs

Posted on Wednesday, June 19, 2013 by Rose4Reading

If you’re looking for light summer reading and you love mysteries and dogs, there are two authors you may enjoy.  Spencer Quinn has several books out now in his Chet and Bernie Mystery series.  Bernie Little is a private detective, who’s partner is Shepherd mix by the name of Chet….just Chet!  The books are written through the eyes of Chet, so you get a dog’s view of the adventures that unfold.  The books are very cleverly written and he has Chet’s thoughts and observations right on as how I think a dog would think.  The first book in the series is titled, Dog on It Dog on It .


The second author I highly recommend is a Todd Borg.  He has a Tahoe Mystery series with Detective Owen McKenna and his side kick, a Harlequin Great Dane named Spot.  Spot helps Owen solve a variety of mysteries by using his many talents in search and rescue, police dog training and also as a service dog for emotionally disturbed adults and children.  Owen McKenna is an ex-San Francisco detective so besides taking place in South Lake Tahoe, some of the stories also take place in the bay area and Silicon Valley.  Mr. Borg incorporates his love of art, nature and local history into his novels, which makes them not only entertaining but also very informative.
