received with several others from the vbb. Sorry I took so long to journal~~I brought the box in, sat it down, sat stuff atop it, and promptly forgot...duh....

Anyway, all are authors new to me, and they look like fun reads.

Another author/character new to me~~one of the great things about bookcrossing :)

I found this thoroughly enjoyable. And unusual; many are the cozies that feature cats, but much rarer to find are those with dogs.

Not sure where this will travel next: I may holld on to it for another round of Medicine Chest Bookbox (because of the cloning), I may take it to the dog park to leave in the wild.....


Amazon Editorial Review

From former detective turned noted author and dog trainer, Carol Lea Benjamin, comes the fifth book in the critically-lauded Rachel Alexander mystery series, for the first time in mass market.

Sophie Gordon didn't let her epilepsy get in the way of her life as a teacher of deaf children. But without her trusty canine companion, an indispensable service dog named Blanche, she wouldn't be nearly as well-off. A service dog that can perform the difficult tasks that epilepsy requires--sensing when a seizure is about to occur and fetching life-saving medication--is extremely rare, so when a veterinarian's office promises that they can clone Blanche, Sophie jumps at the opportunity. Her former worries can now be put to rest, knowing that now she'll have a replacement for Blanche when the time comes.

But the puppy they provided didn't have what it takes to be a service dog, and when Sophie visits the vet to alert them of the problem, none of the staff is anywhere to be found--they've disappeared without a trace. To get to the bottom of this clone-by-night operation, Sophie hires P.I. Rachel Alexander and Dash, her pit bull partner. And two days after meeting with Rachel, Sophie is found dead, apparently of a seizure, but it didn't take Dash's sensitive nose to tell that something doesn't smell right, and that the missing vets definitely need further examination.

Taken from the Medicine Chest Bookbox III with thanks.

This may turn out to be my New York book for NancyNova's 2013-2014 US states & territories reading challenge.

An enjoyable read, and appropriate for the Medicine Chest not only beause of the cloning but for the seizure dogs.

I enjoyed this mystery that starts with the odd insistance that a loved aging service dog has been cloned. Story got a little convoluted in places, but over all marched along quite well, and the dog inclusions made sense (rather than just the 'awww cute' factor).
