Bernie is a private investigator, and Chet is his trusty dog and partner. The case begins when a woman hires Bernie to find her teenage daughter, who has disappeared. The story is told completely from the dog's viewpoint, which is hilarious as he doesn't completely understand what the humans are doing or saying. But he's a good investigator, literally following his nose to help find clues to solve the case. This is the first in a series of Chet and Bernie mysteries, and I can't wait to read the next one!

A lighthearted detective story. Laugh out loud funny. Told in the voice of the dog. Really sweet.

Cute plot....mystery from the perspective of a dog. Not a page turner but mindless reading
