Books read and just now reviewed

Without a Word: A Rachel Alexander Mystery (Rachel Alexander & Dash Mysteries)

Without a Word: A Rachel Alexander Mystery (Rachel Alexander & Dash Mysteries) by dog trainer and writer Carol Lea Benjamin. I gave this a 5 on Goodreads. Rachel is the P.I. and her pitbull Dashiell is her sidekick. Dash is also a trained therapy dog!

There is a border collie on the cover of the book 'cause it went missing along with the wife of its owner. Rachel finds them of course, and helps a young girl traumatized by the absence and disappearance of the woman, her mother. Great novel, with a very sensitive and astute P.I.

Killer Weekend
Killer Weekend by Ridley Pearson is the second book I've read in his Sheriff Walt Fleming mystery series, set in the resort town of Sun Valley, Idaho. A very entertaining read, even though it's another suspense novel that delivers on good plot and writing but doesn't stay in your memory after you have finished it and gone on to other books. It's a 4!

I think his more recent Killer Summer is a better mystery; I gave that a 5. I remember the hunt and chase scenes through the remote Sun Valley mountains. Pearson's most recent novel came out on Aug. 3., In Harm's Way (Walt Fleming Novel). Of course, I plan on reading it!
