Dennis Bisskit and the Basset Hound from Beacon's Bottom and Continental Crimes by Martin Edwards (vintage detective stories)

This was a fun read and what both Dennis and Stinky do so well is that they are good detectives and now they are getting a bit of notice and action. The chance to protect an aristocratic dog at the best dog show in town is a plum assignment but have they bitten more than what they could chew.

Hilariously funny and a good read for all ages.

Always a favourite of mine the British Classic Crime series. I think it should be classified as a separate genre. Dignified even in murder, detectives slowly go about their daily work with precision and class.

Set in cities, idyllic countrysides and in the Riviera the stories change the tone with the change of scenery.

A lovely read for all seasons.

  1. I love the sound of the first book and the second appeals because I'm reading more procedurals lately. Thanks for sharing!

  2. The book about the dog and the dog show world sounds like it would be perfect for us. Will definitely look it up! Thanks!
