Hound Dog Blues

(3 customer reviews)


She’s named after a motorcycle. Her dad’s an Elvis impersonator. Her mom talks to spirit guides…. 

Someone’s kidnapped the family dog – named King, in Elvis’ honor. There’s a ransom note…. 

And then things really get weird. 

Memphis tour guide Harley Jean Davidson is about to enjoy a rare day off when her parents call with news that King, their border collie, has been dognapped. Harley Jean’s mom insists the culprit is Bruno Jett, their next door neighbor. Harley Jean would rather run over her own foot with a motorcycle than talk to him. He’s drop-dead gorgeous – with a dangerous attitude she’d like to avoid. 

But King has to be rescued, so she sets off to find him. Harley Jean gets more than she bargains for when she finds a body, as well. Bruno Jett is definitely involved, but how? 

The Memphis P.D. wants to pin the murder on Harley Jean’s dad. Now it’s up to her to clear his name…and avoid becoming the killer’s next victim.

    This is the first book by this author I have read or listened to but I liked it so it won’t be my last. I liked the mystery and the mystery surround the mysterious next door neighbour and the humour was quirky enough that it was entertaining if not out right funny. The missing/dognapped dog was an unusual plot story, which is what hooked me to being with The characters were fun and kept me listening until the end just to work out what was going on.
    Harley stumbles over a dead body when she is out looking for her parent’s lost dog. The dog is hated by all the neighbours and when they recive a ransom note Harley had no idea that her top suspect, the woman who has a restraining order on her Dad because they have fought over the dog so often, would would be lying dead in her home. The worst thing is yet to come, Harley’s parents disappear before the police can question them about her Dad being seen at the house, at least they found the dog before vanishing, one thing less to worry about. With Harley’s hippy dad’s freedom on the line Harley starts to investigate and that includes the hunky new neighbour who just moved into the house next to her parents. With missing parents, stolen jewellery, strange neighbours, a best friend cop who know more than he is telling and threats will Harley get to the bottom of the murder? And find her parents before the police?
    I liked the fact that there is a male and female narrator and it did help the story but somehow it didn’t work, I couldn’t always tell who was supposed to be talking other than a man or lady, neither of the narrator’s had much range between the characters voices and the males all sounded gruff and deep.
    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    This book had great characters. Harley riding Harley Jean Davidson, a tour guide in the land of Elvis is the daughter of aging hippies Yogi, an Elvis impersonator, and Diva who talks to spirits guides. Their dog King, named of course for Elvis, is kidnapped and they ask Harley to find him. Enter the cranky neighbor lady who hates King and Yogi, the creepy but hunky guy who just moved in next door and you have a funny but interesting story of jewel theft. Promising beginning to a series. I received a copy of the audiobook from the author and look forward to reading more of this series.

    Harley Jean Davidson is not your normal daughter of middle aged hippies because she knows how to solve a mystery. Harley’s first mystery is to find the person who kidnapped her father’s dog King but that leads to her finding a dead body. Harley unwittingly gets mixed up in murder, insurance theft, jewelry theft and a hot young policeman. This book encompasses from dog napping, murder, theft, comedy and a cast of quirky characters especially a Harley Davidson riding woman named you guessed it Harley Davidson. I loved the quirky characters and the very intricate storyline that has more angles than a rubik’s cube. I loved both narrator’s Drew and Karen Commins and their awesome voices they really do bring the book justice. I highly recommend this book if you love different cozy mysteries.
    I received this book from Audiobooks Unleashed and this is my honest unbiased review.
