The second edition of the Raine Stockton dog mysteries dropped a notch from the initial book in my opinion due to to Raine's weird obsession with her college boyfriend turned eco terrorist Andy Fontana whom she hasn't seen in fifteen years. She hides information from her uncle the sheriff; her deputy ex-husband; whom she inexplicably is enraged with for 'allowing' the FBI and Homeland Security to search her house after Fontana had broken into it. In fact she's pissed off at her ex-husband Buck Lawson for pretty much everything that Andy Fontana has done or set into motion.
Back from the initial book in the series are Maude, Sonny, Uncle Ro, and of course the four legged members of the cast Cisco, Mystery, and the two Australian Shepherds. Dexter Franklin also makes another appearance as a villain. This is an excellent follow up mystery despite the aforementioned self perceived weaknesses.

I like the basic idea of this series, love the dog and all the characters... Except the main character/supposed heroine. 1. How can she be upset with her dog when he acts just like her: unruly, rude and dumb. At least the dog is likable. The owner is just rude to the point of mean at times and completely oblivious that she is usually causing more harm than help. Not sure I can carry on in the series.
