Great Mystery with Lovable Sidekick

Steve and Rochester are back with another mystery geared for the dog lover in all of us. In this sequel, Steve is working in the PR department at Eastern College. When his mentor is murdered at a fundraiser, Steve is pulled into the case once Rochester starts nosing out clues.

This is the second in a series of seven books starring the duo, but it can be read as a standalone. It's a clean read with no cliffhanger. Like the first book, the author writes in a simple and straightforward manner with plenty of day to day details. Because of this, we know everything about Steve from what he wears every day and eats at every meal, to every facet of his job. While I missed the hacking that Steve did in the last novel, and I wish it had been included in this one, I thought the inner workings of the college were interesting. I had fun guessing the mystery behind the murder. It was a nice easy listen and a great way to spend a few hours.

The narrator is a perfect match for Steve, he sounds just like I'd imagine him. His voice is pleasant and immersed me in the book. I received a copy of the audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review.
