it was ok
bookshelves: mystery, united-states, western-u-s

Weird mystery that tries too hard to be edgy, cute, and gritty, all at the same (confused) time. Plus, there really is very little about the dogs, and the characters who met at a Berkeley dog park are all quite unlikable, whiny, drink too much, and feel sorry for themselves.

It was just interesting enough that I didn't stop reading, and then I was all pissed at the end.

AND the point of view is from a bisexual opera singer, with a touch of the paranormal (dead Gypsy grandmother coming in halfway through, see what I mean about all over the place?), and I don't think the author pulls it off at all well.

Krystle Kouture Didn't understand the part about the grandma at all haha glad its not just me

Elaine Sloan I didn't understand it, but did you decide that Amy scammed some money and disappeared to Cuba with Gator? Why did Jordi say he had a fake girlfriend? I ended up skimming the middle and reading the last section because I didn't like it but wanted to see what happened to Amy.
