Deadly Gamble: A Girl and Her Dog Cozy Mystery by Connie Shelton Book Summary

Praise for USA Today bestselling author, Connie Shelton, and her first novel:

"An impressive debut mystery!" -- Albuquerque Journal

"Charlie is slick, appealing and nobody's fool--just what readers want in an amateur sleuth." -- Booklist

"This is a dandy. Don't miss it!" -- Book Talk

In this debut nearly-cozy mystery series book, Charlie Parker, accountant and partner in an Albuquerque private investigation firm, is visited by her old school friend, Stacy North. Stacy's Rolex watch is missing and she begs Charlie to help locate it before her husband finds out. Things are complicated by the fact that Stacy had been seeing another man, Gary Detweiller, and he's the one she suspects of having stolen the watch. With a little detective work, Charlie and her sidekick dog, Rusty, retrieve the missing watch and all should be well. But three days later, Detweiller is murdered. All eyes turn to Stacy as the prime suspect.

Once again, Stacy begs Charlie's help in proving her innocence. As she begins to ask questions, Charlie learns that Detweiller's life was not as simple as first perceived and that any number of people had grievances against him. And before she can pinpoint the killer, her own life is in danger as well.

Includes new foreword from the author upon the 20th anniversary of first publication of this ongoing series' first title.

Keeps you guessingAt first I didn’t think I would like this book, but the more I read the more intrigued I became. What starts off as a theft of an expensive watch, soon becomes the murder of the thief. While looking for more suspects Charlie starts attracting the wrong attention as some puzzling things happen to her. When the thief’s wife is subsequently murdered, no one can figure out why or find the murder weapon. Charlie is determined to find the truth and almost dies in the process. Definitely a must read if you like suspense with many twists and turns..Score: 5/5

Enjoyably cleanWow! There are good books out there without all the foul language and torrid sex. If that is what you like, read something else.
