Quotes

  • “If you have ever been certain your dog understands what you’re saying, read this book. If you wish you could understand, read this book. If you don’t have dogs, read this book anyway.”

    - New York Journal of Books
  • “Once again, Quinn…effectively uses a dog narrator while avoiding the sentimentality that marks many animal-centered cozies.”

    - Publishers Weekly
  • “Between Chet’s insightful and humorous takes on human events, the fast-paced plot, and the wealth of fascinating secondary characters, this is a fine entry in a not-to-be-missed series.” 

    - Booklist
  • “You would think that by the fifth series title, Quinn might have run out of ideas and quips—he hasn’t…Humorous and entertaining.”

    " I love the Chet and Bernie books. But I have to say this one was my least favorite. Still a good solid read. I highly recommend the whole series, which is mostly 4 and 5 star worthy. "

    " I love this series and more than once, I laughed out loud. Mostly, just smiled as Chet and Bernie tackle another mystery. So much is left to the imagination in the story telling -bringing out the details of the mystery while 'seeing' the experiences through a dog's mind. "

    " This is just the most delightful series. Granted, I am biased because it is told from a dog's perspective and the dog is at least partial Border Collie, but trust me, in addition to the fun mystery aspect of the books, we could all learn from Chet's insights. Thanks, Marci, for the recommendation! "

    " Darn! The last one in the series (so far). This is a great series, with a fun narrator (Chet, the dog -- he has a blog, too). I get excited every time I see Slim Jims now (Chet's favorite food!) "

    " I love Bernie and Chet. Chet reminds me of another dog I know who is fixated on his owner. According to Chet, "Bernie is always the smartest one in the room". The plots always keep me guessing because the only clues I get are from Chet, who tells the story -- obviously from a dog's point of view. "

    " I have truly enjoyed all the Bernie & Chet books, but this one fell a little short on plot. Too much chatter of the dog losing his train of thought. Hope the next one gets a better plot to keep us interested. "
