The Gordonston Ladies Dog Walking Club
Little is what it seems to be in a leafy Savannah neighborhood as members of an afternoon cocktail and dog walking club mourn a neighbor’s death. Jealousies surface when friends vie for the widower running for mayor. An old woman with an infamous uncle plots to avenge a wrong. Memories haunt a once successful children’s writer. And a model has won the trip of a lifetime.
Something is up in the quiet, middleclass neighbourhood of Gordonston. I really don't want to go into the plot, for fear of giving anything away. Let's just say what seems like a normal, everyday suburb is anything but. This book has several jaw dropping moments, and you will get a few laughs out of the antics of the neighbours. All just pret ...more
This book has about 196 pages, and I believe the publisher is Dog Ear Publishing and is a 2012 copyright.
Gordonston is a nice neighborhood in Savannah. On the surface it's a place anyone would feel comfortable living in. There's a nice park where on any give ...more
From the very beginning, Duncan Whitehead's style of writing keeps you inches from all the untold truths and just when you are about to say “OMG, I ...more
Brilliant plot very cleverly done and what a surprise ending that left me shaking my head and wondering when there will be a part two...I WANT TO KNOW MORE MR WHITEHEAD!
Please, please, please write a follow up to this fantastically different book and please kill off somebody else.
My favorite part was when one of the younger neighbor’s visited Paris without her husband. Once she ...more
If I had had the time to read it in one sitting, I would have. When I had to put it down, I found myself looking forward to picking it up again, anticipation for a special treat.
The plot focuses on three well-heeled ladies who live in an exclusive neighborhood in Savannah, Georgia, and who regularly meet each afternoon in the neighborhood park for the purpose of letting ...more
The plot twists were inventive and unsuspected. The setting was refreshing and felt authentic; including the two overseas forays the novel takes.
There should be a part two: lots of room for character development that could follow along the already well drawn lines. A little tweaking with the writing style could develop a novel that loses all trace of the authors hand and lets readers get fully engrossed in the story.
I don’t read a lot of mysteries so I’m not aware of the di ...more
Yes, an all-round good fun book, at times the characters confused me, and I had to check ...more
I love small towns, I guess it's because I came from a small town. Although small towns usually go at a slow pace - the same cannot be said for jealous feeling and gossip of small towns.
This novel is about some unconventional and slightly strange women whose activities involve walking their dogs, among other things. Although they are friends and share some of the same interests - they still ...more
But while the dogs play together at one end, the Gordonston Ladies’ Dog-Walking Club (total members: three) catfight at the other, hissing and spitting behind their genteel Southern manners. Replace the park with a shark tank, and you wouldn’t be far ...more
Why do I have it? I didn't get it for my mother as the publication date is after her death. It looks new. I may have bought it in Sam's Club on the excuse it could be a gift for a dog lover. In other words, it was an impulsive purchase. Wish I'd bought The Orchardist the time I saw it, but that one I passed up. My Sam's Club where I used to make impulsive purchases like ...more
This is very much a comic murder mystery with a lot of societal satire of well off Southern widows and upper class society.
I enjoyed the book and read it in one sitting. It is rich in plot, well written and th ...more

The book is unique because it is an epic case of the pot calling the kettle black--in the beginning of the story, I was led to believe that everyone was a bunch of honest, upstanding, well-meaning and well-mannered citizen ...more
