FELIX NAUGHTY DOG is a standalone read in a series. It is appropriate for any age and any age from child to grandparent can read and enjoy. Set in Bitter Bark with the family of the Dogfather series. This is a fun entertaining read. This book stars the two grandmothers, Gramma Finnie, the Irish and Yiayia the Greek grandmother. They fancy themselves matchmakers as they take credit for getting their grand kids and great grand kids married to the love of their lives.
Yiayia has signed herself up on a dating site for elders and she thinks she has found the guy for her. You should know she is in her 80's but she is still looking for a bit of excitement. There is one problem. Finnie is sure the man she is communicating with is part of the mob and is just hiding out in the small town next to Bitter Bark. So, they decide to go to the mall where he is playing Santa and sort of check him out.
Pru is on a mission to gain points for her schools challenge to do random acts of kindness in hopes of winning the prize of a winter formal for her school. Her two friends decided to go with their boyfriends as a team so that left Pru with no team. Then she discovers what the grannies have planned and she decides to go with them and get in on the adventure to check out Santa. While the grannies are picking up Pru in town, they notice a boy with a Greyhound standing off by himself. He does look a little big rough simply because his hair is a little long and he is wearing a leather jacket. Naturally everyone assumes he is a hoodlum and the rumors are flying around school about who he really is. The Grannies are having none of that. They invite him to go to the mall with them. He accepts their invitation.
First lesson, do not judge others when you don't have all the facts. They make it to the mall and that is where the fun begins. Tor, the greyhound, is a rescue. He was a racing dog from Florida and he has only been with Lucas for a short time. He is not trained to do anything but run. This leads to a lot of mayhem and fun. There is a lost dog, the FBI, a heartbroken granny, another begging forgiveness and a great train ride.
This is a lovely story. It is a sweet Christmas story with a very happy ending. Just what we need at this time of year. I really enjoyed the story and I definitely recommend it.
I was not paid for this review. I am not a writer nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less. 11-21-2020.
