Real estate mogul Derek J. Turpin, a chocolate company, and a journalist present the Dickens Detective Agency with its greatest challenge yet. After returning from a honeymoon cruise aboard a sailing ship, Damien and Millie land a plum assignment - a trip to Montreal to run a simple background check on a chocolate company. But, their plans are disrupted when a fellow passenger from their cruise comes to them for protection. What did Barbara Lafleur, a travel writer for a Montreal newspaper, learn about Derek Turpin's activities that has put her in fear for her life? After she is struck by a car in a deliberate hit-and-run, it's up to Team Dickens to put a stop to Turpin's schemes.
The Expanding Dickens Agency
The Dickens agency is expanding in all sort of ways in The Chocolate Labradoodle Caper by Phyllis Entis. This detective novel, though taking place in 1980 has a classic feel from an era before. The dynamic actions taken to protect a client and friend while operating under the pressure of a corrupt, power wielding developer keeps for an interesting story line. It certainly has some surprises and a connecting plot that makes you want to see how it all turns out. It contains a great deal of description in geographic locations, character and even eateries.
This is the second novel in the series that I have had the privilege to review. In this case, I received a complimentary audio version of this book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
