*Sigh*...I REALLY want to love this book...I really do...But I can't...It's slow, boring, and the character development is nill...I enjoy the characters and can envision this book being a LOT better if written by someone with a bigger imagination...I am so dissapointed...I was really hoping that Elvis had more page time...But alas...The King was mentioned many times and had a few pages but nothing like I expected...I went into this book hoping that I would fall deeply in love with the series but I struggled through the first book...Don't think I will be reading any of the others...It's such a shame...

From the Books-a-Million website:
"Fried Green Tomatoes" meets Stephanie Plum in this sassy, Southern series, starring the lovable, eccentric Valentines and Callie Valentine's failed show dog, Elvis.

Move this book to the top of your TO Be Read pile (TBR), This book is fun, fast paced, never dull, full of great characters, and every few chapters Elvis the dog gives his opinion. It is full of some great laughs, and you will wish it didnt end. But there is always book 2.

Cute story from the perspective of Elvis (the dog) a bassett hound who thinks he's the reincarnation of Elvis, and his owner Callie (who runs a beauty shop). This is a fast read with a lot of southern conatations.

Very cute cozy. Elvis is basset hound reincarnated from Elvis Presley. So he gets his own pages to comment on his life every few chapters. The main characters will remind you of Lucy and Ethel. Quick moving, likeable characters. Looking forward to reading the second one in the series.

I really tried to like this book. The premise was good: a body missing from a family owned funeral home, quirky characters and thoughts from a dog named Elvis. It just seemed to be a struggle to keep up with who was doing what and where the story was going. 2.5 stars

Reading this book for me, is like running and running, becoming out of breath, and not sure why I am running or where I am going. Just so fast, details are omitted, and points are understated. I like the main characters, but it just is not a hit with me.

Owning a Basset and Cocker Spaniel myself I loved reading this book. It was a funny read.
