5 STARSI ENJOYED THIS BOOK IN THE SERIES EVENstarsI enjoyed this book in the series even it wasn t my favorite It had dogs obedience school and a new neighbor who doesn t seem to have boundariesIn terms of the obedience school which was the dog theme instead of dog shows I felt that it was there to make the mystery happen and not to add to the plot While I would have oved "To Read About Obedience School As With "read about obedience school as with dog show world the setting was superficial and really only served to provide someone to ead to the mystery I expected and wanted details about the obedience classes themselvesThat I really enjoyed the characters and mystery in this book I thought the mystery was nice and interesting and though it wasn t as serious or gruesome as others in the series I still enjoyed it As usual the gossip is the biggest and most relevant part to the mystery and I was happily surprised by the twist at the endThe new neighbor was really weird I don t really understand her point in the story as it didn t relate to the mystery While I understand it was an interesting bit in the story I don t think it was strictly necessary even if it did partially result in a change for the entire family Bob includedLast I enjoyed seeing Faith again Based on the description she seems ike such a sweet and smart dog which is partially why I would have wanted scenes at obedience school so as to be able to see those smarts.
