Recensioner

Mrs Loretta Plansky is a recent widow, living in Florida, playing tennis at the club, trying to deal with her ninety-eight-year-old father, and contemplating requests for money from her children and grandchildren. One night she’s awoken by a late-night phone call from her grandson. He’s been in an accident in Colorado and needs bail money. And, please don’t tell Mom & Dad! So, of course, Mrs Plansky gives him her bank account number and password. She even tells him he can take a bit more than he requested. But when morning dawns she discovers that not only her bank account, but her investment accounts have been completely drained of all funds. And law enforcement offers little to no hope of recovering her funds. Well, THIS will not do! If the law won’t help, Mrs Plansky will get her money back herself!

This was just delightful. Loretta is resilient, intrepid, tenacious, and so unassuming that no one can possibly consider her a threat. She has no patience for the bureaucrats, police officers, journalists, etc who not only will NOT help her, but look askance at her and dismiss her. This elderly lady is NOT to be messed with! And when push comes to shove, Loretta gives as good as she gets. The final chase scene had my heart in my throat, but she’s got moves I never expected. She may be in her seventies, but Loretta Plansky is one kick-a$$ heroine! Brava!

I still think Quinn’s Chet and Bernie series is superior, but this was really a fun lark of a novel.

I've never read a book written from the dog's point-of-view.

This was a delightful summer-time read. If I didn't have so many other things going on, it would have been a lazy afternoon's quick read.

I can't help but wonder if Quinn was actually a dog in a past life. Chet's (the dog's) comments about humans seem to be spot on. And his descriptions of what's going on in a dog's mind when it does the things it does are priceless. I'm going to look at Garvin (our dog) with different eyes now as he goes about his daily routine.

As one of the other reviewers said, I'm definitely going to get around to the rest of the series.
