Review: “The Barker Street Regulars” by Susan Conant

the barker street regulars conant susan

Either Conant was getting bored with dogs, or she decided to try and garner more readers through a little expansion. Though their faculties may be failing, the elders' simple enjoyment of an animal's touch speaks volumes about the good a therapy dog can accomplish. I read this book because I saw a couple of others from this series and decided to look them up on Goodreads. Or to a singularly ugly cat Holly rescued from drowning? One of the first cozy series I ever read and I probably hold more affection for it because of that. Susan Conant is an American author of cozy mystery novels. Susan graduated from Radcliffe College and then earned her doctorate in human development from Harvard.

Holly and her champion Alaskan malamute, Rowdy, who has earned his Rx. This same woman also convinced clients of Holly's veterinarian boyfriend, Steve, that their show dog was a victim of malpractice at the hands of Steve, and Holly is convinced that the woman is a kook. I don't believe most of the ideas people come up with based on a few random lines, but the are fun. Even Holly finds herself reluctantly impressed by the psychic's apparent abilities until the fog parts during a late-night stakeout in Ceci's yard with her elderly cohorts.

The author loves her own malamutes and this comes through clearly. I love the concept of this book as much as the book itself. I also felt for Holly when she went to the pet psychic. In this one Holly Winter and her two dogs, Rowdy and Kimi have to find out who killed her freinds grandnephew. Just this year, my family lost Lemur, my beautiful gray kitty. I hadn't read a Susan Conant in quite a while, so I decided to pick up the series again.

The E-mail message field is required. When Althea's grandnephew is murdered at the home of her younger sister, Ceci, everyone is horrified, but it's the plight of Ceci herself--who is being victimized by an unscrupulous animal psychic--that finally unites this unlikely group in a crime-stopping spree that requires not only the finely tuned ratiocination of the Holmes admirers but the eager cooperation of an outraged Holly and the very particular talents of her willing canine accomplices. When Althea's great-nephew dies while visiting her sister CiCi, the men encourage Holly and her dogs to join in a Holmes-style investigation into whether the man was the victim of an accident or something more sinister. I also found the new characters in this book, Althea and Cici, tiresome and wordy. Rowdy has finished his training as a therapy dog and now accompanies Holly on weekly visits to the Gateway Nursing Home, where they meet Althea Battlefield, still formidable at the age of ninety, and her two elderly, admiring cohorts, Hugh and Robert--all fanatic devotees of the Master as they call Sherlock Holmes. In this particular outing, Holly and Rowdy are working on his Rx.
