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.

Fun and easy read. At least Charlie isn’t incredibly beautiful, thin, long legged and everything I am not. She is fun and bumbles around a bit. I enjoyed getting lost in her escapades.

Good, satisfying, light read. No sex, no major swearing, incidental violence (After all, this is a murder mystery.)

Booooring. Extremely boring. This book dragged on way too much. There are so many parts that can be taken out to shorten this book, which would make it much more readable. I couldn't finish it, it was taking way too long to get through a bunch of hogwash.

Deadly Gamble. Quick read. Interesting characters looking forward to more

Deadly Gamble. Enjoyable story that moved along rapidly and kept me interested to read more.

Hooked!. This was my first time reading this author. I was totally hooked after the first few pages. I forced myself to put the book down so I could get some sleep. Then had a dental appointment I was not about to cancel. And had several more interruptions today. Finally finished the book. This author can really write a good mystery! I encourage you to try her out if you have never read one of her books. I don't think you will be disappointed!

Deadly Gamble. Nice, relaxing mystery with a snoopy young woman who almost gets herself I real trouble. Would like to read more of her work.

Keeps you guessing. At 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.

Deadly Gamble. Thanks first and congratulations following. What a great piece of writing! Totally enjoyed reading your book and I loved everything about it, the adventure, and thrill of the unexpected outcome was awesome! A definitely must read and a what a page turner. Just kept me glued from beginning to end. Thanks again and look forward to reading your next book. Congratulations!!

Great Story. I really loved this book. I could not stop reading. Wonderful characters. Rusty is my favorite! Highly recommend.

Another winner!. Connie Shelton's books are always a cozy, entertaining way to spend a weekend. Lovable characters, excellent story lines and well written.

Deadly Gamble. Great, engaging read! Complex, multi-dimensional characters in a whodunnit with an unexpected ending. Enjoyed it!

Deadly Gamble. This page turner kept me guessing ‼️

Great story. Great story, lots of humor, and a fun read!

Kept my interest wanting to know who dunnit. Kept my interest

Fun. Believable storyline. Kept me interested.

Good Book. I enjoyed this book and the story never gave a real clue until the end. I enjoyed it as I visited Albuquerque when I was young and probably traveled some of those streets.

Enjoyably clean. Wow! There are good books out there without all the foul language and torrid sex. If that is what you like, read something else. Here is a rather ordinary woman doing a job she is not a cut out for but doing very well. Good story, very believable characters and I did not guess who-dun-it. Yay!

Deadly Gamble. Boring until the very end. Almost gave up before that.

Absolutely!. Loved this book! It was interesting, had drama, murder and characters were great. I love the way she writes and looking forward to reading the next one.

Deadly gamble. Excellent read with a surprise ending.

Deadly Gamble. I don’t know that I’d be as forgiving of Stacy as Charlie was.

Deadly Gamble. A very intriguing read! The plot was not obvious, and the storyline was not obsfucated with unnecessary frou-frou. I will read more books by this author.

Page turner!. Charlie Parker empathy for an old friend, despite the pain from the friend's prior actions, drives her to do what is right and inadvertently puts herself in harm's way as a result. Thanks for the fine free read!

Definitely Enjoyable. I found this book irritating as well as riveting! It was kind of all jumbled with a lot of characters but the storyline was focused as well as frustrating! Read and see how you react!

Amateur Detective. Charlie is an account and has a business with her brother who is a private investigator. Brother, Ron, is away when an client shows up. Charlie sets out to her an ex/friend and figure out killed Detweiller. Well written story kept me interested right up until the guilty is uncovered. Enjoy!

Deadly Gamble. A good, easy to read book. Nice characters and plot.
