Bonus Round: Another Whiskey Straight Up review!


As I prepare to launch the third Whiskey Mattimoe mystery, Whiskey and Tonic, I was delighted today to find this review for the second book in the series from highly respected Crimespree Magazine:

WHISKEY STRAIGHT UP
Nina Wright (Midnight Ink)

Reviewed by Gay Toltl Kinman

How to describe this wonderful, wild, wacky book? Perhaps by giving the "recipe." Start with one realtor, Whiskey Mattimoe, 33, recently widowed by her second husband; a helicopter pilot who wants his flotation device back; a mayor, another realtor who is not as nice as Whiskey (but no matter he won't be around for long); Abra, an Afghan hound from hell; a live first husband who wants to do it all over again; a step daughter from the same place as the hound who believes the house she is living in with her three-month old twins is hers, even though Whiskey owns it; a single father (of the twins); Chester, 8, whom Whiskey is babysitting on a long-term basis and who goes missing with the help of his possible grandmother who may be a fake; and an ex-con who shot Whiskey's second husband the first time. Stir in the setting--Magnet Springs, a Michigan resort town, during the annual Ice Fishing Jamboree. The search is for Chester, and the searchers keep getting clues, which keep the trail hot. Finally, a ransom note--but not for Chester. Hilarious!!

    I *LOVE* this book.

    Here's my wish for everybody who loves dogs...and even those who don't: Read this and laugh all the way to your next face-to-face encounter with a canine. Great madcap comedy mixed with mystery!
