Publishers Weekly on Bark To The Future

At the start of Quinn’s winning 14th Chet and Bernie mystery (after 2021’s It’s a Wonderful Woof), Bernie Little, owner of the Little Detective Agency, and his canine partner and the series’ narrator, Chet, are driving home to the Valley (somewhere in the American west) when Bernie stops the car to slip a few dollars to a homeless man standing by a freeway exit ramp. Bernie is shocked to realize that the man is Rocket Saluka, who played on Bernie’s high school baseball team. Bernie takes Rocket to a burger place, where Rocket shows Bernie a switchblade, his “most valuable possession.” Afterward, Bernie drops off Rocket at the exit ramp. When Bernie later hears Rocket has gone missing, Bernie traces his presence to a homeless encampment, where Chet digs up the knife in the man’s tent. With this as their only clue to his whereabouts, the duo set out on a trail that leads them back to Bernie and Rocket’s alma mater and into a web of crimes that culminates in murder. This entry offers a tidy mystery, a good dollop of action, and a rumination on life after high school—who could ask for more? Chet, with his innate doggie wisdom, is sure to inspire loyal fans and seduce new readers. (Aug.)*

    “Who can ask for more?”–we can ask for more. I am greedy and am already wondering when the next book after Bark to the Future will be.

    Speaking of greedy….Mr. Big stole water from me even though he has a nice clean bowl of water all to himself.

    Hobbit: A Cat Hair was Involved?

    Well, definitely cat spit.

    Rowdy is a beautiful cat. Beautiful green eyes. Glad she is back with her family. But I must say when I read these stories about cats and dogs I have to wonder who at these airports are letting them out of their carriers. I remember years ago a Whippet was lost after one of the dog shows on route back home. I never did hear if it was ever found. I hope it was taken in and cared for by someone. I am so grateful that Leon was found.

    Now, time to celebrate with some mac n cheese. It’s its national day.
