Publisher's Summary

Polly Parrett is appalled when a homeless military veteran and his old dog are accused of murder.
Polly is juggling the care of her wheelchair-bound mother, her pet-sitting business, and the sale of the family home. On top of that she finds herself having to deal with an arrogant but really sexy realtor, and Christmas is coming! None of that seems important, though, when she finds herself in the middle of a murder investigation and must find the real killer before an innocent homeless man and his dog are wrongly convicted.

Perfect for the holiday car ride to Grandma's

This is a G-rated, family-friendly, cute, short, sweet, feel-good story. Mystery is a bit of a stretch for adults, but that's the price of having a kid-friendly tale. In any case, I would definitely recommend this audiobook for when you're in need of or have a desire for a cute, fluffy listen with very minimal drama and angst that you can share with the whole family.

The narrator does a good job and has the right tone for this type of book. Her male and female voices were reasonable. She was clear and easy to understand, and there were no problems with her pronunciation.

Some reviewers stated that the narration was too slow, but don't let that sway you from the audiobook. I listen to MOST audiobooks, including this one, at 1.25 speed because I believe, in order to enunciate clearly, the narrators HAVE to read more slowly than in usual conversation, and 1.25 usually works well to bring recording speed up to what I consider "normal" speed without elevating the pitch to chipmunk status.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review. The number of stars is based on where I believe this audiobook rates with other audiobooks of the same type, length and general feel-- not where it rates in comparison to all audiobooks of all time.

- Erin "Audiobook Addict. It's all about the Listen. Mostly Romance, but I do branch out a bit. Reviews are my honest opinions-popular or not."

Whiny Narration

I so disliked the whiny petulant narration I had to stop listening. This book was just for fun - but no fun with the terrible cadence, rhythm and character voices. Yuck!
