"If you like happy endings, then this is a good set of books to read. Each is good as a "stand alone", but as a set they are even better. Set in Texas, the books follow several well developed characters in a well thought out story line. I enjoyed following Kelly and his dog Jake through the healing process of losing his wife and the adventures he seemed to always find himself involved in. The characters seemed real to me and the setting was one that I wouldn't mind living in. All in all this was a fun light read and caused me to chuckle several times along the way. I enjoyed the mystery element and trying to figure out "who done it". Hopefully Jude Pittman will continue writing with these characters. It would be fun to see what would happen next." ~ 4 Stars, Oregon Dreamer, Amazon Verified Purchase
"Very well written, funny, sexy and mysterial, what more can you ask for! I like the every- day settings as well, something you can find in real life. All in all, very normal stories by a good story teller." ~ 5 Stars, Gitte, Amazon Reader
