    A mystery romp so fun it will sneak up and bite you in the rear If you want to get that joke, you ll have to read the book The tone is lighthearted, the descriptions so vivid I could feel myself in each scene, and the subject matter of illegal bird smuggling is topical and covered compassionately Add in great dog scenes, loveable characters, and a wee touch of romance, and you can t go wrong Second in a series that I hope continues for a very long time.

    Probably classified as a cozy mystery, this story has depth in plot, characters and writing that the cozies While it does have a theme, dog lover that does not overwhelm the story, nor is that fact pushed to the forefront with cute puns all through the book Not a heavy read, but an enjoyable one I liked the characters, the plot and the dogs.

    4 STARSThe Money Bird made me think I want a puppy Then looked around at my two sleeping dogs in my bed and thought again Their dogs are so well trained of course they go to train them once a week or so The animals are a big cute part of the book Janet MacPhail is a animal photographer She owns a Australian Shepherd named Jay and a orange tabby Leo She is dating Tom She is very caring and curious Janet s mom is in a nursing home and a lot of the time does not know who she is Or does and wants to [...]

    Excellent I am so glad that I discovered Sheila Boneham s books a while back her writing is amazing I hate to call her books cozy because for many people that term means so much less than what this series brings The characters are well developed people with real emotions and problems even beyond the strong mysteries.In the Money Bird Janet is photographing a retriever training session when Tom s dog makes a odd discovery Nothing too big but the hint of blood catches Janet s attention even though [...]

    I very much enjoyed the other book of hers, Drop On Recall much This one was okay, but one thing in it really bothered me The book deals with the illegal trade in exotic birds All throughout the book the author refers to how the main character is sickened by the very thought of what the animals go through and can t even discuss it or think about it at any length Yet the very title of the book is Money Bird, a term used in reference to hunting trials where birds are killed in sport for the dogs [...]

    This was a very good read If you love dogs, then this is a book for you Janet has an Aussie named Jay and her boyfriend, Tom, has a Black Lab named Drake I learned a lot about dog training from this book and I also learned a lot about exotic birds Janet and Tom end up having to solve a crime centered around the smuggling of exotic birds This cozy had humor in it also, Janet was somewhat of a smart aleck at times, but still likable Great job Sheila I thoroughly enjoyed this read.I received a comp [...]

    Set in Fort Wayne, Indiana, the main characters are Janet MacPhail, a professional photographer that specializes in animals, and the man she is seeing, an anthropology professor Their dogs play a significant role in the story, as peculiar things are happening near where the local Hunting Retriever Club practices, including a mysterious death Well plotted story and a realistic portrayal of the animals involved Recommended.

    I kind of wish I could have my time back It was well written enough with an ok plot, but if you have ever read mystery or suspense it isneasy to piece together I have read animal focused books before, but this one had of a old cat lady feel to it Even though the main character has a boyfriend, she seems happier sleeping with her dog I am glad to return this book to the shelves.

    I loved the main protagonist, Janet MacPhail She was reminiscent ofJanet Evanovich s Stephanie Plum series, but a little older and wiser.

    Another clever, well rounded, great read

    Janet and her dog, Jay, are back and investigating some strange goings on Exotic bird smuggling , and a shady preacher make a great murder mystery.

    I blew right through this book, and I kind of wish I had taken my time because it is going to be a while until the next one I find myself caring about even the peripheral characters in this series.

    Enjoyable mystery dog read Will look for her next book.
