that is actually a word but am making it ne really Could it be because Cognitive Science: An Introduction to the Study of Mind of the way the Southerners were portrayed Not at all in that area the characters seem to be fine The story just didn t grab me the characters didn t grab me I guessed how it was going to end about half way through and I just didn t find it funny I was really disappointed as was hoping for better I won t lie I completely picked this book up ONLY becausef the Basset Hound I love the cozy mystery style as well but as the human Mommy The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta of a Basset Hound that is what pulled me to this book Is this book as strong as somef the ther cozy mysteries I ve read I would have to say no but it was a WHOLE LOT OF FUN I loved the fact that I had NO idea who committed the crime I ll admit I usually don t I m really not much f a detectiveand I did love the bit f mixed up romance within the story as well However I will say that I did not love how completely clueless Callie is and I hate that she seems to have sorta separated from her husband because f the fact he bought a motorcycle To me that just seems ridiculous but at the same time in a way the ridiculousness f the characters reminded me f the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich which I love and that helps to explain why I loved the story even if some f the traits f the characters annoyed me However as I expected my favorite character in the story is Elvis her basset hound Every three chapters Dicmatized 2: Bitter Sweet Revenge or so is a short chapter usually 2 4 pages told from Elvis s pointf view and that was just fun The Martian Science Fiction: Scifi Novellas Set on Mars onlyther thing I wish is that we had The Witches Ball of a SOLID ideaf what Jack s job is I mean I have Saving Charmaine: A Heaton Family Friends Series Book of an idea than Callie does but maybe that is the pull to get us to read in the series and trust me I plan to Elvis ain t nothin but a hound dog literally Elvis is a purebred Basset Houndf Tupelo Mississippi He s a hunka hunka burnin love and the nly dog in Tupelo Mississippi to be the reincarnation f Elvis Presley Elvis the hound dog is devoted to his human mom Callie Valentine Jones and her family They run the Eternal Rest Funeral Home where the dearly departed get a non stuffy informal fun send ff and comfort from Elvis f course Callie is in charge The Deadline of hair and makeup Mama Ruby Nell when not losing Callie s money at the casinos sings cousin Lovie bakes the bereaved comfort food liberally laced with whiskey and sherry sensible Uncle Charlie just tries to keep everyoneut f trouble When a prominent local doctor Dr Leonard Laton dies and leaves most f his fortune to his mistress former Las Vegas showgirl Bubbles Malone the family is incensed With Ready to Restore: The Layman's Guide to Christian Counseling one daughter awayn a hunting trip the funeral is delayed In the meantime Dr Laton s corpse vanishes from the funeral home Callie and Lovie are determined to find him and trace the trail to Las Vegas where Dr Laton turns up in the most unexpected place Elvis would love to ride shotgun but he has a date with a hot French Poodle in the back alley Besides he knows his human Dad Jack has Callie s back even if Callie doesn t know it This is a very light and fluffy mystery that doesn t reuire much thought In fact it s better if the reader doesn t try to think I thought it was easy to figure Ready to Restore out who did it but I was wrong I wasn t sure but I did end up suspecting The investigation if you can call it that is very inept Moren that later The local color is fun but seems like a stereotype The saving grace f this novel is ElvisElvis is a hoot He is the perfect blend f dog follows his nose devoted to his human parents and arrogant celebrity He narrates every few chapters with his personal thoughts Shieldmaiden Book 1: Quest for the Jewel on what is happening around him He is privy to secrets that chara.
