Pint of No Return by Dana Mentink – Book Review

Pint of No Return by Dana Mentink – Book Review

When I say my favorite character in this first book of the Shake Shop Mystery series is Noodles the service-dog school dropout, don’t let that worry you any. Because despite the fact Noodles was such a treasure, Pint of No Return is jam-packed with quirky, loveable characters, the charming small-town, […]

Framed in Death Valley by Dana Mentink – Book Review

Growing up in Southern California, my family spent many weekends camping in the desert, though we were usually further South than Death Valley.

What a treat when some of my favorites collaborate on a collection of stories! Each author in this collection has a unique style and the creativity of each circumstance makes for a fun variety. They all did well with tying the stories together and not making it obvious that they […]

Fun turns of phrases and perhaps a wordplay or two. And a plot that is interesting, perhaps with something unexpected thrown in to […]
