I listened to this audiobook during a particularly boring drive througt Nebraska. Time flew by and I'm sorely disappointed that the next Corgi Files book isn't available yet.
The Case of the One-Eyed Tiger was engaging and entertaining. The characters are well-drawn and I want to know more about them in the next story. And the Corgi, Sherlock, grabbed me from the first intro, as he asked to be adopted.
One warning: there is some cursing in the story, although not anything too awful. If not for that, this would be PG.

The story and narrations were perfect together. Loved the psychic dog portrayal and the learning curve Zack had to go on. loved the back and forth of "I'll get back to this later..." It was like a good buddy telling you a great story. And about those swear words--There were apologies extended to the affronted characters, and really this was banter among friends. Can't wait for the next!
I was provided this audio book at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via AudiobookBoom dot com.

A book filled with querky characters, fun and a nice little mystery, too.
Zack Anderson is an author. His books, sexy romance novels enjoyed by both men and women, sell well. At least, they did until the death of his wife in a car crash six months before. Since then his writing seems to have fallen flat. So when he becomes the beneficiary of an estate, with winery, thanks to his wife's great aunt, he decides to make a new start and move to Oregon. It changes his whole life as he reconnects with an old friend, makes some new ones, and some enemies, aquires a remarkable corgi named, appropriately, Sherlock - and gets arrested for murder on his first day there.
This is a well constructed book, deliciously written in the first person, with excellent characterisation and a twisty little plot set in very small town Oregon where everyone knows almost everyone else's business. Bob Johnson becomes self confessed 'lazy' author Zack as he faces up to slightly insane locals and gets to know, and enjoy, his new home town and learn a little about wine in a place boasting 24 wineries and which holds an annual wine tasting festival which brings in tourists by the bus load. The text is natural, humourous and this is fully expressed in Mr.Johnson's warm narration, his voice full of cadence and expression: a very believable, likeable Zack.
At my request, I was really fortunate to be gifted a complimentary copy of the Case of the One Eyed Tiger, by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you so much. It was a very enjoyable delight, both book and narrator's performance working together perfectly. A definite recommend to anyone (other than those who only like furious and bloody action). And I will definitely be looking out for more to come in the future.
I was provided with a free copy of this audiobook in return for an honest review.
I have to say I was gripped by this story from the beginning as I found the main character to be sympathetic, understandable and funny in equal measures. The author deliberately makes the character slightly dim about technology to explain certain plot devices, and the best part is that it's completely believable. I have friends who act the same way with their smart phones and look at technology as if it's something to be scared of.
Having been a dog lover all my life and whose friends are dog lovers, I recognised behaviours in the main character that are enacted in real life, talking to your dog as if it understands you, assigning them human emotions, and finding your life is taken over by your dog, willingly or not.
The narrator does a good job in defining the characters and certainly had a good tone for this story. The song Natalie could have ruined the light hearted nature comedic aspects, like the mouse, but Bob's voice picked out the right tones at the right time.
Loved this and would be more than happy to read more of this author's work.
