Do you like free books?

Posted by Irish in Books for Free, Contest, Misc1 Comment

Do you like free books?

Of course you do. Who doesn’t? (Well, not counting those crazy peeps who don’t like to read for fun.) Anywho…if you like free books and if you like those books to be mysteries….and involve intelligent dogs then head on over to my pal Tapestry100’s blog found here for your chance to win two….that’s right TWO…books by J.F. Englert. The books are: A Dog About Town and A Dog Among Diplomats. Amazon describes the books as follows:

A Dog About Town

Harry is a man still mourning the loss of his beloved girlfriend, Imogen, who left him suddenly without a word. He’s also the owner of a plump, poetry-loving Lab, Randolph. Like most Manhattan dogs, Randolph spends his days sifting through a world of scents, his owner’s neuroses, and an overcrowded doggy run at the American Museum of Natural History. But now a bereft Harry has drifted into a circle of would-be occultists. Which might not be so bad if one of them wasn’t also a murderer.But which one? With 100,000 times the smelling power of a human being, Randolph can quickly detect the scents of guilt, anxiety, and avarice—and he has no lack of suspects, from a seductive con woman to an uncouth professor of the decorative arts. Now, to protect his hapless owner’s life, Randolph might have to do the unthinkable—and start training Harry to catch a killer…

A Dog Among Diplomats

He reads Proust. Surfs the net. Is the soul of diplomacy.And when it comes to solving crime,Randolph is the dog for the job.Murder has come to Manhattan’s East Village. And when detectives call twenty-something artist Harry to the scene, his Labrador, Randolph, instantly smells a rat. Why? Because Harry’s missing almost-fiancée—and Randolph’s beloved mistress—has been implicated in the murder, which has ties to the U.N. While Harry looks to the spirit world for answers, careening between terror and wild hope that Imogen is alive, Randolph goes into detective mode, using his superior Lab brain—2.3 pounds of smoothly functioning gray matter—to surf the Net, track down clues, and even land a job as a “therapy” dog to a depressed diplomat. Suddenly the brainy, book-loving Lab has done the impossible: he’s penetrated the shadowy corridors of the U.N. (which boasts the most vicious, backbiting dog run in the city) in search of a killer. Now it will take all of Randolph’s cunning to protect Harry, clear Imogen’s name, solve the crime—and stay alive long enough to enjoy his upcoming
birthday.

Even if you don’t want to enter the contest you should still check Tapestry100’s page. There is a great author Q&A with the author of the above mentioned books as well as lots of great book reviews. Well, that’s it for me for now folks. As always thanks for stopping by!

Happy Reading!
