A Surprisingly Fun Mystery
Collared (An Andy Carpenter Novel) - David Rosenfelt

I picked it up for the cover alone. I found this while shelf surfing at my library. I read the authors blurb, he has 35 dogs, runs a rescue. My kind of human, I had to give the book a try. It was a fun quick  mystery with realistic drama.

The main character is lawyer who doesn't need to work for a living, he does it because it's the right thing to do. He is married to a PI, has and adopted child and several dogs. His humor is snarky and intelligent. His relationship with his family and coworkers was believable and relevant to the story. I liked the guy, liked his wife, his wacky coworkers and how they went about getting things done.

This was book #16 in this series. Why not start towards the end right ?   I have a lot more books to read in this series, and that is good. I have plans to start from book 1 and slowly work my way through them

Collared (An Andy Carpenter Novel) - David Rosenfelt

I would have never picked this up if I'd known the MC was a lawyer.  I grew up surrounded by lawyers, practically lived in a law firm. You can see where I'm going with this ? Good thing I didn't know because I'm really enjoying his humor.

The Perfect Audiobook Experience
Marina - Carlos Ruiz Zafón

What a fantastic audiobook, the narration was wonderful. The story was gothic suspense horror, not too scary, just right. I look forward to reading more form this author.

A Not So Nice Mermaid Tale
Lies Beneath - Anne Greenwood Brown

Mermen, Mermaids and Promises Broken, that is what started out this whole vengeance drive this not so nice fishes have going on. When you make a promise to the menfolk you better keep it ! Well, of course somebody didn't and the issues trickled down a few generations to the present time where a young father is hunted to pay for the sins of his father. His teenage daughter just happens to be the lucky pawn girl the mermaids direct their revenge towards. Oh what a jumbled mess of love, lies and murder. The merman in charge of making the girl lusty begins to feel more than lusty, and starts to question his evil step sisters and ends up in the fishbowl for it all. This family drama has some funky tones to it that, well you'll see if you read it. There is a lot of self doubt, a lot of should searching and of course budding romance. It all ended with a mild cliffhanger, that didn't leave me clicking immediately for book 2. I enjoyed it, but something was missing.
