Off the Chain (Gone to the Dogs #1) by Janice Thompson



The Town of Brenham, Texas, Has Gone to the Dogs!   Curl up with your pup and sink into a delightful small-town mystery as riddles and rescues stack up in book one of a new cozy mystery series.   Marigold Evans’ first attempt at rescuing an abandoned pooch lands her in a drainage pipe in Brenham Texas. . .and almost in jail, until Parker Jenson comes to her rescue. Then a bad day only gets worse as the Lone Star Vet Clinic, where they both work, is vandalized and the list of suspects starts to climb. With the help of her fellow employees, Marigold sets out to simultaneously solve the crime, rehab the rescued dog, and help more dogs in crisis. But why would anyone continue to work against all their good efforts?



About The Author


Welcome to the wacky, wonderful world of inspirational author Janice Hanna Thompson, where romantic comedy rules the day! I hope you love to laugh, because I make it my goal to tickle your funny bone at every turn in my light-hearted tales.

There’s something for everyone in my stories, so settle back in your chair, grab a cup of hot tea, and get ready to discover a light-hearted approach to life!


My Review


A book after my own heart, delightful, and full of good banter. Our main character is a girl who wants nothing more than to spend her life rescuing animals, and our first meeting is in the sewer, or drainage ditch. Mari, or Marigold, is still missing her recently deceased mom, but we meet more of her family and her Grandmother, the pie baker!

We have a mystery, with damage to the Lone Star Vet Clinic, there are a variety of characters and my suspicions went from one to the other, but was surprised when the answers start to fall.

Assumptions, yes, we all do that, and your going to find yourself doing just that, and maybe changing your mind!

Will Mari see what is in front of her eyes? Besides, the delightful pooch she rescued?

Such an enjoyable read!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
