The Black Sheeps Baby (Into The Heartland) (Into The Heartland) (Silhouette Intimate Moments, eUrb would have youxpect He occasionally pops into the story and relates it from his point of view while having romantic liaison with a poodle It s all go and relates it from his point of view while having romantic liaison with a poodle It s all go the south I am a lover of slapstick type humour but this

be because of the way the southerners were portrayed not the way the Southerners were portrayed Not all in that area the characters seem be fine The story just didn t grab me the characters didn t grab me I guessed how it was going to nd about half way through and I just didn t find it funny I was really disappointed as was hoping for better I won t lie I completely picked this book up ONLY because of the Basset Hound I love the cozy mystery style as well but as the human Mommy of a Basset Hound that is what pulled me to this book Is this book as strong as some of the other cozy mysteries I ve read I would have to say no but it was a WHOLE LOT OF FUN I loved the fact that I had NO idea who committed the crime I ll admit I usually don t I m really not much of a detectiveand I did love the bit of mixed up romance within the story as well However I will say that I did not love how completely clueless Callie is and I hate that she seems to have sorta separated from her husband because of the fact he bought a motorcycle To me that just seems ridiculous but at the same time in a way the ridiculousness of the characters reminded me of the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich which I love and that helps to Dangerous to Touch explain why I loved the storyven if some of the traits of the characters annoyed me However as I Once Upon a Seduction (Its All About Attitude expected my favorite character in the story is Elvis her basset hound Every three chapters or so is a short chapter usually 2 4 pages told from Elvis s point of view and that was just fun The only other thing I wish is that we had of a SOLID idea of what Jack s job is I mean I have of an idea than Callie does but maybe that is the pull to get us to read in the series and trust me I plan to Elvis ain t nothin but a hound dog literally Elvis is a purebred Basset Hound of Tupelo Mississippi He s a hunka hunka burnin love and the only dog in Tupelo Mississippi to be the reincarnation of Elvis Presley Elvis the hound dog is devoted to his human mom Callie Valentine Jones and her family They run the Eternal Rest Funeral Home where the dearly departed get a non stuffy informal fun send

the back alley Besides he knows his human Dad Jack has Callie s back Rodeo Daughter even if Callie doesn t know it This is a very light and fluffy mystery that doesn t reuire much thought In fact it s better if the reader doesn t try to think I thought it wasasy to figure out who did it but I was wrong I wasn t sure but I did My Guilty Pleasure (Harlequin Blaze end up suspecting The investigation if you can call it that is very inept More on that later The local color is fun but seems like a stereotype The saving grace of this novel is ElvisElvis is a hoot He is the perfect blend of dog follows his nose devoted to his human parents and arrogant celebrity He narratesvery few chapters with his personal thoughts on what is happening around him He is privy to secrets that characters don t tell Fatal Secrets (Protecting the Witnesses each other which I didn t really like I was hoping Callie would learn these Up the hairdos of the dead but when the corpse of local prominent physician
