This book which contains legal drama and high stakes criminal investigation is the 20th in the Andy Carpenter series This is only the 5th I have read but I intend to read Narrated by Andy I always

    425This was my second Andy Carpenter series book and I’ve got to say I’m growing uite fond of this character Andy is a defense attorney who would like nothing than to retire But alas poor Andy keeps getting pulled into helping people out of the “pickles” they presently find themselves in This time it’s Andy’s wife Laurie who asks him to assist in a murder case one that is fourteen years old They need to help a man who steadfastly proclaims his innocence Even though his DNA was found under the victim's nails Oooops Good luck Andy You’re going to need itI love a character with attitude And boy does Andy have that in spades He is one of the funniest and snarkiest is that even a word?🤔 characters’ I’ve come across Early on I thought he was over the top But as the story played out I grew to love him who would have thought?🤷🏻♀️This book is number 20 in the series but will also easily read as a stand alone Highly recommend if you’re searching for a fun laugh out loud light readAs for Andy's dogs🐶I was a tad disappointed in the previous release as the dogs only had a minor supporting role Mr Rosenfelt must have heard me🤭 because they were front and center in this releaseA super fun buddy read with SusanneThank you to Joseph Brosnan at Minotaur Books for this ARC to read and review

    Well this started off as a case of deja vu I recently listened to Deck The Hounds and the beginning of this book was so similar I started thinking I had somehow already read it No Mr Rosenfelt is just recycling his opening lines But I’ll forgive him Because when I need something light and refreshing Andy Carpenter is my go to Rosenfelt has tapped into the current use of DNA websites by the police to find links to UnSubs In this case Andy’s client is accused of a fourteen year old unsolved murder when his brother’s DNA comes up as a relative to the DNA found under the fingernails of the victim There’s also a subplot about a police dog seeking early retirement These are books you love for the characters And I love that Laurie is able to twirl Andy around her little finger and he knows it While these aren’t serious books they’re always well constructed and designed to keep you guessing And almost every page has a bit of Rosenfelt humor Very few authors are eually successful in combining humor with a good mystery Kudos to Mr Rosenfelt for keeping me engaged through 20 books My thanks to netgalley and St Martin’s Press for an advance copy of this book

    First Sentence It has been almost fourteen years since Kristen McNeil's body was discoveredA tag on a Christmas charity wish tree leads attorney Andy Carpenter and his wife Laurie to a young boy wanting his father Noah Traynor to be brought home The murder for which Noah has been arrested was a cold case until his DNA is identified on the victim's body In the meantime K 9 officer Sergeant Corey Douglas is about to retire but his dog Simon still has time left to work Corey wants Andy to help him get Simon released to retire with him Andy agrees to represent Simon on the basis of species discriminationHow refreshing when characters defy stereotype Laurie Andy's wife is the type of person one aspires to be; kind generous compassionate toward people She is an ex cop and very capable of taking care of herself and Andy Andy on the other hand is a lawyer who keeps trying to retire from the law and is passionate about dogs As a self described weakling he depends upon Laurie and the indomitable Marcus to protect him There are interludes of Andy at home with his family and friends yet they avoid the over sentimentality such interaction can bring aboutRosenfelt's courtroom scenes are a pleasure to read They are well presented and honest even when the client is decidedly unusual He creates an excellent analogy likening a court case to a mountain climb such as Mt Everest and through it introduces the rest of Andy's uirky and memorable teamIt is always tragic when someone young dies It is appreciated when Rosenfelt acknowledges one of the great sorrows of such a death 'It also once again highlights the terrible loss that occurred when her best friend died; Kristen might have gone on to bring other people into the world or cure some disease or just do kind things for people that needed kindnessThe story includes alternative POVs but only when needed to move the plot forward by characters other than the protagonist Rosenfelt creates a plot which seems simple but grows into something complicated and dangerous as it progresses Be aware; despite the cute dog on the cover this is not a cozy Rosenfelt does like his body count but the scenes aren't particularly gory He is also very good at the unexpected and very effective plot twist and a fun mention which lightens the situationThe dialogue is so well written the courtroom exchanges come alive Along with the on going outside investigation in which there is a very nice escalation of suspense plot twist and an excellent red herring one feels the anticipation of awaiting the jury's decisionDachshund Through the Snow is a well done legal mystery with plenty of twists and suspense A very nice aftermath hints at the future of the series DACHSHUND THROUGH THE SNOW VG Legal Mys Andy Carpenter New Jersey Contemp Rosenfelt David – 20th in series Minotaur Books Oct 2019

    What a great holiday mystery This is the first Andy Carpenter mystery I've read but I'll be catching up on the series I'm this book Andy a lawyer and his wife Laurie a former police Lieutenant and now an investigator for Andy have a decade old crime to solve Their success could bring a family back together or shatter it forever With many twists and turns one concerning a retiring police officer and his older canine partner the book keeps you on your reading toesI enjoyed the witty dialogue and the relationship between Andy and Laurie Also the supporting characters were as well written as the main character's and all added a layer of mystery humor and humanity to the book The book is the perfect holiday read While it's not a cozy mystery it has a cozy feel I'd put this on my holiday TBRI received an ARC from NetGalley for a fair and honest review of this book
