Publisher's Summary

When Gabriel's witch girlfriend doesn't return from her latest trip, he gets on the road and heads out to find her. Sheila's coven is secretive and distrustful of Gabriel, so the only help he has is Sheila's familiar, a bulldog named Orson, who is psychically linked to both of them.
In Florida, they walk right into an elaborate plan to steal Orson. A mysterious wizard named Yareth is behind the plot, and he may also know where Sheila is.
Gabriel and Orson will have to fight for their lives as they navigate around all the magical roadblocks to force Yareth's hand. They won't give up until Sheila is safe.

‘Orson is a lot more charming than the two of you.’

I am a cat person, truly. They maintain themselves better than dogs. My cats don’t demand attention or walks; they want a clean litter box, wet cat food on a clean plate each day, a new water bowl to drink, a couple inches of water in a sink to clean their paws after they do their business, and fresh dry food daily. Yet the only cat books I can find are connected to newly awakened witches who are more dimwitted than Alicia Silverstone in Clueless (who actually grows during the movie) or Legally Blonde’s Reese Witherspoon (who is adorable, not snarky or bytchy) and not nearly as likable as the mentioned actresses.
So this is why I end up listening and reviewing books with dogs as main characters.

Tail & Trouble’s Orson is a familiar, yet a bulldog, who belongs to Sheila, a witch. Her coven members aren’t impressive and even her mom wasn’t concerned with Sheila’s disappearance. Which leads the listener/reader to conclude they’re involved because the alternative is it’s bad writing or poor planning, which this book clearly had a good outline and editor. It’s evident even at ten minutes in. So we hold on for the ride.
Told from Gabriel’s first person POV, we learn things through his actions and level of reasoning. He’s an impressive ‘perfect’ boyfriend who loves Sheila (he succumbed to her demand to live without a cell phone, but his constant reminders got old) and they seem to have a good, solid relationship. He gives her room and freedom and it’s based on mutual respect, trust, and freedom.
Written with some adult colorful remarks and side notes, teens (high school age) and NA could appreciate the writing as well as older audiences for a fun, lively missing person paranormal mystery.
I thoroughly enjoyed this pychic talking dog and his step-parent’s adventure! Although I didn’t ever want to “pause” it, it was easy to step away and pick up where I left off whenever I needed to.
Unfortunately, I don’t see any other interesting books written by Victor Catano nor narrated books by Michael Sears. This was a blend of remarkable story telling and delivery. It would be cherished by anyone who wants a unique paranormal with fun yet unsnarky idiotic characters (what’s up with so many paranormals having the same characteristics in their casting, anyway?) and a mystery/plot that leads to something bigger, yet not a sinister apocalyptic cataclysmic event.
It’s an Undiscovered Gem that deserves more attention. A full length cozy of a higher caliber, putting most others to shame.
