Laura Book #18, Seabiscuit, is not a mystery book.


message 2: by Elaine (new)

Elaine No, it isn't. I probably should remove it, but I haven't so far.


message 3: by Laura (new)

Laura :O)


message 4: by Elaine (new)

Elaine I removed it.


message 5: by Laura (new)

Laura Good girl!!!


message 6: by Elaine (new)

Elaine LOL. I feel so virtuous. :-)


message 7: by Macnab (new)

Macnab No 16, Open and Shut, David Rosenfelt.
The dog is incidental to the story. Doesn't belong in this list.


message 8: by Robin (new)

Robin Bliss to You: Trixie's Guide to a Happy Life & Stay Are NOT mystery stories and don't belong on a mystery list.


message 9: by Pamela (new)

Pamela Beason I'd like to suggest the additions of my mysteries The Only Witness and THE ONLY CLUE--signing gorillas are major characters in both books.
