New Tricks: Book Review and Giveaway



About The Book:

Attorney Andy Carpenter is about to represent an adorable Bernese mountain dog puppy, whose owner was brutally murdered, in a custody fight. Few can rival Andy's affection for dogs, and he's determined to keep Waggy from falling into the wrong hands. But this playful pup possesses a valuable secret that some people will resort to violence to obtain. It will take more than Andy's usual courtroom theatrics to sve Waggy, icnluding help from the lawyer's golden retriever, Tara. Andy soon discovers that everyone around him is in danger, including his longtime girlfriend, Laurie and only some high-risk new tricks will save those he cherishes most.



About The Author:

David Rosenfelt was the marketing president for TriStar Pictures before becoming a writer of novels and screenplays. His debut novel, Open and Shut, wond Edgar and Shamus award nominations. First Degree, his second novel, was a Publishers Weekly selection for one of the top mysteries of the year, and Bury The Lead was chosen as a Today Show Book Club pick. He and his wife established the Tara Foundation, which has rescued over four thousand dogs, mostly golden retrievers.

My Review:

This is the first of Rosenfelt's books I have had the opportunity to read and I have it say it was a pleasure. New Tricks is actually the seventh in a series featuring the character of Andy Carpenter, however New Tricks has everything it needs to also be a stand-alone title. Full of mystery, twists and turns, you will be intrigued from beginning to end! I really enjoyed the well written plot lines and well-developed characters. I look forward to reading more from Rosenfelt in the future. It is a quick and easy read that will keep you entertained throughout.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
