descriptions so vivid I could feel myself in each scene, and the subject matter of illegal bird smuggling is topical and covered compassionately Add in great dog scenes, loveable characters, and a wee touch of romance, and you can t go wrong Second in a series that I hope continues for a very long time. Probably classified as a cozy mystery, this story hasdepth in plot, characters and writing that the cozies While it does have a theme, dog lover that does not overwhelm the story, nor is that fact pushed to the forefront with cute puns all through the book Not a heavy read, but an enjoyable one I liked the characters, the plot and the dogs.
