Copper and Goldie


Copper and Goldie, Reviewed Oct. 4, 2019

This collection is quick and easy to read. All the stories are less than 20 pages long and each can be read in less than fifteen minutes. This is perfect for when time is short and you don't want to start a full-length book, but still want something entertaining to read. The mysteries are fairly light with just a dash of suspense, and the violence is minimal and never graphic. While each story contains a stand-alone mystery, I recommend reading them in order to follow the progression of Sam's life after leaving the police force.

I'm so glad I had the opportunity to read Copper and Goldie. The stories are fun, the characters likable, and the final "tail" is the perfect ending to this heartwarming collection. Fans of cozy mysteries would do well to pick up a copy today.

Sam's adventures are only beginning. In just a few pages, Sam and Goldie completely won me over! Sam was a good officer with a promising career cut short by a tragedy. When his personal life also falls apart, he's forced to make some tough choices. Sam works hard to get his life back on track, but trouble still manages to find him. It only seems natural that Sam become a private investigator. Since I love mysteries and dogs, I couldn't wait to dive into this collection of stories and see what each "tail" would bring.

Sam and Goldie make a great team. Sam is smart, resourceful, and deeply cares for his daughter. He's also still clearly in love with his ex-wife. He's the kind of man who doesn't hesitate to help those in need, and I really liked getting to know him and watching him rebuild his life. Goldie is such a sweet dog! She stole my heart, and every scene she is in. Her personality shines through each page. The pictures of the golden retriever that inspired Goldie's character are absolutely adorable and truly furthered my enjoyment of the story. I couldn't help but smile every time I opened the book!––Four Stars.
