Many thanks to Sarah Hardy and BOTBS Publicity for my spot on this Blog Tour.
Henry, a Jack Russell, was the part of a research team trying to find a cure for MS. The drug injected in him caused a miracle of sorts. HE COULD TALK. Gywnnie Davies and Dr Moss were overjoyed, the first talking dog in this world. Then Henry got kidnapped…err…dognapped!
My first book by author Morgen Bailey, this was one heck of an adventure. Henry was simply the cutest. I loved the way the author had characterized him, giving him intelligence and mannerisms of a human. His life away from the facility was filled with its own highs and lows.
The dognappers were not too bright, Henry could escape them. Then came Sally, I loved their interaction. Though Henry didn’t talk to her in the human language, the author managed to fill their relationship with love.
The last part of the story concentrated more on the investigation to get to the identity of the dognappers. The book meandered in some parts decreasing my interest in it. But Henry brought my attention back to him soon.
The first in the series, I thought Henry would make a highly intelligent canine Sherlock. A sweet start!!
I received an ARC from Sarah and author Morgen Bailey, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Set in Northamptonshire, England… Henry, a talking Jack Russell, is part of a small team researching a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. He is the target of several dognappers but can he use his wit or guile to outwit them and, with the help of forty-year-old laboratory assistant Gwynne Davies, find the proof needed to convict the criminals. Thus begins a series of adventures for the unlikely pair. There have been amateur sleuths, there have been talking animals – Henry is both. This is Family Guy’s Brian meets Poirot meets My Fair Lady.
