Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Review to come soon. Jul 25, Jeannie and Louis Rigod rated it really liked it. This book had us on a panic search for an ugly tiara, murdered beauty pageant winners, past pageant winners, ghosts, and Abra and her beau, Norman?
As usual this witty, clever, and tightly written plot amused me and was true entertainment with an unexpected ending. The storyline crossed over from Victorian days to the current decade with using all the characters we have begun to know from Ms. Wrights' earlier novels in the series. Yes, I said cats. The dogs This book had us on a panic search for an ugly tiara, murdered beauty pageant winners, past pageant winners, ghosts, and Abra and her beau, Norman? The dogs think so too! This is a charmingly gentle cozy murder several in fact, mystery that is perfect for hot summer days or cold winter days.
Feb 18, Kimberly rated it really liked it Shelves: A Whiskey Mattimoe Mystery: Book 3 Whiskey is at it again; chasing Abra all around Magnet Springs that is. The book starts off with a bang, as the Afghan hound snatches Miss Blossom's hideous tiara at the local pageant and starts a whirlwind of trouble.
First off, the tiara is a family heirloom that not only comes with a hefty insurance, but it's accompanied with a curse that has spanned many years. Whiskey quickly finds herself in the middle of an investigation that leads her to a haunted mansi A Whiskey Mattimoe Mystery: Whiskey quickly finds herself in the middle of an investigation that leads her to a haunted mansion and many surprises. The storyline is great and there are many laugh out loud moments making this a wonderful cozy mystery!!!
Nov 18, Grey rated it it was ok Shelves: It was just as frantic, but it didn't have the same "feel" as that one. The main story has to do with some curse on a piece of property that she's been commmissioned to sell and her dog Abra is at it again, stealing the tiara from the local beauty pageant. It does have some cute moments, but overall I didn't like Whiskey as much as I did in the first book. Perhaps my expectations were too high.
I suppose my biggest problem is that Whiskey's been a widow for a year and now she's looking for love in all the wrong places and that bugged me. Aug 07, Shirley rated it really liked it Shelves: After seeing this book fly of the shelf I finally decided I had to read the book. Fun, lighthearted mystery in a small town.
Mar 17, Suzanne Platt rated it it was ok. For sosme reason I couldn't get into this book as much as the first two. The story didn't pull my total attention so I found myself taking a while to finish it. Sep 03, Rexanna Ipock-Brown rated it really liked it. I like the quirky characters. Sep 20, Robert Brown rated it it was amazing. Great Novel, The laughs never stop from cover to close.
Jun 26, Pat rated it liked it Recommends it for: This is the second of the series that I have read. It is well written, but just a little too silly for my taste. It does have some entertaining moments, but not enough for me to recommend it. Jan 27, Barb rated it liked it Shelves: This is the third book in the series.
Abra is after Norman, no that isn't unusual, but when Abra finds a small child's running shoes, the hunt goes on to find a missing or missing children. What is going on? Whiskey needs an aide besides the multiple ones she has already hired. This novel is meant to be silly and is a great break between harder written murders. I do enjoy them so.
Kindle Customer Abby Top Contributor: I love the new doggie that has come into Whiskey's family and only wish she was mother enough to welcome it herself! I figured by the way these stories are going that she would land up with the 11 missing children that seem to be lost the entire book. I mean her house just keeps getting fuller. In this one, Whiskey has rented a house to a mother with 2 kids, but neighbors start complaining about at least 11 children living there.
Then the mother is killed, the children missing and Whiskey has her hands full once again. Also she is attracted to yet another guy that her stepdaughter once again steals right out from under her. Oh, well, there's still one left The author keeps you guessing on this one and really I don't care about her love life. I only care about those cute and funny dogs and the mystery which is great and will keep you on your toes! How to write a fun mystery: Chester and Abra steal scenes left and right.
Whiskey is "volunteered" to be a unpaid deputy when a woman with 11 kids disappears and winds up dead. The only credible witnesses are Abra and Norman.

The dialogue especially between Whiskey and herself are hilarious. Visit Magnet Springs again but please don't wear any bling. Abra will mug you for it. The Whiskey series are super fun reads.
Whiskey and Water (The Whiskey Mattimoe Mysteries): Nina Wright: ewutabezix.tk: Books
I have to say, I'm sad they changed the covers! The cartoon Abra shows so much character and attitude. As a matter if fact, it was the covers that drew me in when I saw one at a used bookstore. Maybe the author and artist has a falling out? Whatever the case, they are good fun romps. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

Lovable, quirky characters in a well written, easy reading, who-dun-it. Nina Wright has done it again. I'm always looking forward to each new adventure. It's so fun to become involved in the antics of both Abra and Prince Harry the canine stars of the books! I have enjoyed all the humorous Whiskey mysteries and it's a delight to get to spend time with the delightful characters in Magnet Springs once again.
