READ & DOWNLOAD ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ü Peggy WebbIndeed larger than life Lovie literally is author Peggy Webb manages to rein the humor in so that there is also a good mystery mixed in with the humor Webb alternates the viewpoints in the book between that of Elvis and Callie and I was pleased that this wasn t simply another animal helping their owner solve a mystery Elvis may think he s being helpful but he also thinks he is well Elvis Along with Elvis irky characters include Lovie Ruby Nell Ruby s best friend Fayrene who can mangle a phrase with the best of them and Bobby Huckabee who claims to have a psychic eye These characters lend a lot of humor to the book and there were some laugh out loud moments including an escape to a balcony that doesn t exist Webb walks a fine line with these characters and mostly succeeds although she has an annoying habit of explaining each of Fayrene s malapropisms she needs to trust her reader s intelligence As for the mystery elements while the book is well plotted with plenty of surprises I figured out halfway through the book who the killer was Elvis and the Memphis Mambo Murders is a very funny cozy mystery It was Beyond Band of Brothers uite fun and reallyick read real cozy although not too much action and plot I won this book in a FirstReads giveaway Overall I #Thought This Book Was book was Elvis cameo was a little weird for me I liked the characters and found the story fun and interesting I do plan on reading by this author I have never read any novels by Peggy Webb and this is the latest in a series of Southern mysteries Elvis a basset hound who believes he is the reincarnation of Elvis Presley helps his human mother to solve murders In "This Caper Many Of The Valentine Family " caper many of the Valentine family have gone to Memphis for a dance competition Callie the ownermother of Elvis and her cousin Lovie run around the historic Peabody Hotel attempting to solve the murders before Callie s mother Ruby Nell becomes a victim The antics of Callie and Lovie resemble an adult version of Ethel and Lucy on I Love Lucy but with less humor Elvis the dog narrates many chapters to let the reader know the status of the case This is a fun read with no graphic violence but plenty of sexual humor The cast of characters is extensive and at times very confusing plus I had a difficult time with the first few chapters in trying to decide the narrator of the events The many references to Elvis are interesting but sometimes too overdone This might be an interesting book for my Southern Voices Book Club to read and discuss An okay read for a southern cozy Normally I love these types of books but a bassett hound who thinks he is Elvis reincarnated just made me suspend my disbelief too much The story is told from two different viewpoints mostly from Callie and then a few chapters from Elvis Callie who along wit.
