Review of eBook

Freelance writer Clarissa Montgomery Hayes is driving through upstate New York to visit her cousin, Lucinda. Two months ago, Lucinda’s beloved uncle, Josh, suffered a heart attack and died. Clarissa and her Saint Bernard, Paudius Pernivius . . . Paw for short . . . are hoping to help cheer up Lucinda.

When they arrive, Paw heads off to investigate the garden; he digs up some mums and the two women discover something strange buried in the flower bed. Later, a note slipped under Clarissa’s bedroom door suggests Uncle Josh was murdered and Clarissa soon finds herself deep in an investigation.

Did Uncle Josh really die of a heart attack? Can Clarissa and Paw find the truth?

=========

This short story, part of the author’s Clarissa and Paw mystery series, introduces Clarissa and Paw and sets up the mystery. There’s not much character development and even less of a true plot . . . things fall into place far too easily, leaving the reader with no opportunity to “puzzle” over the mystery.

The denouement brings a bit of a twist into the telling of the tale, but readers are likely to feel stunned by the speed at which everything develops.

The blue dolphins alluded to in the title are at the heart of a glaring disconnect in the story. At first, they are described as “a pair of sapphire clip-on earrings;” later, in a discussion about the blue dolphins, one character states that they need to find out what was done with “those diamonds.” And, finally, they once again become “two sparkling sapphire earrings.”

All in all, this one’s just a bit disappointing. ( )

Even though I started another physical book, I was in the mood for something short and cozy. As I didn't have something physically and I just charged my kindle, a couple of days ago I had downloaded a couple of free books, and The Mystery of the Blue Dolphins was one the checked all my boxes.
Another reason that I picked this book is that of its book cover; it has a Saint-Bernard. One of the movies I watched and very much like are the Beethoven movies with the Saint-Bernard as the main protagonist. At the end of the book, I saw that Sandra Baublitz based the stories of this series on those movies.
Paw, the Saint-Bernard in the book, is very friendly, loyal, and very faithful to his owner. It is a bitter-sweet short story and not a real cozy mystery as I expected (Avigail how it can be a cozy-mystery novel if it is only 22 pages). I don't know if I will continue with this specific series maybe I will read her longer cozy-mystery series.
I would have liked the story to be a little bit longer, and the author should have built the plot.
A short story usually has flat characters that can not develop them very much; you learn very little about them because of the length of the story. I would have loved to learn a little bit more about Clarissa's friend, Hiram and about other characters that Clarissa in interacting with.
The clues of this cozy-mystery short story come very fast again because of the length of the story. It was an ok book to fulfill my reading-mood. ( )

I enjoyed reading this fun mystery.

You never know what the Dog Detective might dig up! ( )
