The Talking Dog Detective Agency Book 1
STORY-INE A BARK IN THE NIGHT BY M. K. SCOTT:
Nala, preschool teacher, decided to try her hand at discreet private investigations during summer break. After all, P. I. work has to be better than demanding parents and whining children. However, Nala did not know she would have a partner; one with four legs and the ability to talk, known as, Max part German Shepard and part “who knows.”
With a mother demanding grandchildren, a father who protects and serves, talking dog Max, and a love interest in the newest addition to the police force, Nala’s life is far from dull. Come along as Nala begins an adventurous career in discreet private investigations. My cozy mystery book reviews of A Bark In The Night follow.
CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
A Bark In The Night by author M. K. Scott is the hilariously funny tale of the trials of Max and amateur P.I. Nala. I laughed and laughed reading this book. Without a doubt, Max is the star of the story. Full of opinions, odd doggy attitudes, smart-aleck insights, and transparent, manipulative maneuvers, Max will grab your heart just as he did Nala’s. Every good P. I. needs a Max, especially if you are new to the game and the dog has been around a time or two.
Although the cases take a back seat to Max and Nala, I found myself enthralled with the storyline and the characters. The authors filled this story with good feelings; a tight family who has its quirks, a woman determined to find her niche and succeed, and a dog in need of a loving master and permanent home with a job to perform. Giving the reader all of these and more, you will love this sweet, feel-good story.
