Reader's reviews

To present an unbiased review, I must admit that I adore Corgis & love reading an author's first published book. It should also be noted that mysteries are my least favorite category & I dislike crime drama of any sort for entertainment or leisure. So, why did I give a virgin crime mystery novel with several Corgis in attendance my highest rating? It's because the writing is really good & in the end a book is about the writing. The characters are well defined with the perfect amoung of detail. I felt like I could pick any of them out of a crowd yet they weren't a cliche. Some elements are predictable, yet others will keep you guessing until the end. I finished this book in just a couple days which is really a great indicator of my level of engagement. Fabulous light read for a wide audience. Check it out Book Peeps. Can't wait to read what this promising author writes next!

.Perhaps I'm biased because I have two corgis and love the coast of Maine, but I loved this book! It was full of suspense and wit and I found the archeological topics very interesting. Dawn writes in such a way that I had a vivid picture in my mind of this amazing property the main character bought on the internet sight unseen. Her descriptions brought the book alive. You don't have to be a corgi-person to love this book. It's full of intrigue and mystery. The corgis just add to the story!

Started a little slow, but ended very strong! 

I love corgis; I love mysteries so this book seemed like the perfect option. The corgi personalities are perfect and of course, adorable. They make a sweet addition. I found the protagonist a little annoying but her relationships with other characters, as the book unfolded redeemed her. I definitely recommend the book and while a little slow in the beginning, give it a chance and I think you'll appreciate the effort. I am looking forward to the author's next effort.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! In the interest of full disclosure, I am a corgi person (I have three) so of course I lovedthe corgi inspired parts! But aside from that I just plain out loved the book, corgis or no! The lead character sounds so much like me so I was pulled in right away. There was a lot about her that resonated with me. What a wonderful setting, too....oh to have that property! I felt like I was there. Loved this book and I can't wait for the sequel.

I ordered the book because of the title, and was really surprised at how good it was. When I read a book that is good, I can visualize the places and people. This book was excellent. By the end of the book, I was wishing it was a real place. Can't wait for the next book!
