About The Book
To Fetch a Thief, the first Mutt Mysteries collection, features four novellas that have gone to the dogs. In this howlingly good read, canine companions help their owners solve crimes and right wrongs. These sleuths may be furry and low to the ground, but their keen senses are on high alert when it comes to sniffing out clues and digging up the truth. Make no bones about it, these pup heroes will steal your heart as they conquer ruff villains.
This is a book for dog and mystery lovers of course, there is not only one mysterious story but four; all of them involve a dog and show us how an animal can change someone’s life.
I am not sure which one of the four stories is my favourite, because let me say that all of them were interesting in their own way, and it was lovely to read a book where the main character was not a human but the lovely friend that was always on their side, the dog.
I like reading some stories where there’s a mystery, but not everything turns around it, the neighbourhood and the animals are an important part of the story!
If you are searching for a quick read, this is your next book! 😉
