I had high hopes that this book would be a charmer but it turned out to be a disappointment. The characters were unlikable and the narration heavy handed. Can't recommend.

I did not care for this book. I guess the plot could be called clever in that it does illustrate how people and situations are not always as they appear. But none of the characters are likable. Well, one of the male characters is an overall good guy and his wife, who is dying, has some appeal but everyone else in the story is two faced, phony, deceptive and some of them are downright evil.
I thought this book was supposed to be funny but I didn't find it amusing at all. Its only saving grace is that it has a lot of dogs in it - but the author didn't use the dogs to propel the plot or make the story more quaint or colorful or original.
The narrator was fine but although a bad narrator can ruin a book, a good narrator can’t rescue a poorly written story.
I don't recommend it.

A very cleverly thought out book with lots of plot strands that start off miles apart and then start to intertwine in the most fantastical ways. An intriguing read that keeps you guessing thought until the end. I loved it.

Don't be tempted to give up on this book! It is a really slow burner, reflective of the area of the United States in which it is situated! You may be tempted into thinking that this story is going nowhere but, oh boy, would you be wrong!!
To tell you anything, other than what the flyer has already depicted, would be to give you a massive spoiler! So, I really can't do that! Suffice to say - absolutely on no account give up on this book! Stick with it yo the end. You will not be disappointed!
I'm off to get book 2!

Happy I only paid $2.99 for this book because that was about it's value. Had a few laughs and there was a bit of a mystery and some of the characters were entertaining (even if some were just stupidly impossible). I made it to the end - which I did not think I would. It was not helped by the narrator who was very dull. Not bad enough to return but certainly not good enough to recommend.
