Review: Nose For Trouble by Doranna Durgin

Nose for Trouble
A Dale Kinsall Mystery
1st in Series
Fox Acre Press
Updated from 2005 Edition

Dale Kinsall, DVM, is trying to leave his past in Ohio behind as he and his beagle pup, Sully, make the big move to Arizona. The fire in Ohio has left him with horrible memories and damage to his lungs. He is hoping the dry desert air remedies both.

When he arrives at his new clinic he meets his very unique staff and some fairly odd clients. Everyone’s tongues are wagging about a murder. Dale finds himself right in the middle of the investigation as Sully leads him right to a second victim on their very first walk around the area.

It soon becomes clear that Dale, the clinic, and his new friends are being targeted. Dale feels he must have done something to someone but it’s hard to solve a mystery when you aren’t really sure what the mystery even is. Everyone around him soon learns that just like Sully, Dale too has a  Nose For Trouble.

Dollycas’s Thoughts
I had not read the previous version of this story so I am one of the brand new readers the author mentions in the Foreword. I appreciate the Beagle greetings and truly enjoyed the ride. We already have two dogs or after reading this I would be out shopping for my own Sully. He stole my heart and my dogs are nowhere near as smart.

Durgin has created wonderful characters and put them into a great mystery but Sully is the star. Careful, you will find yourself laughing out loud to some of his antics. Writing from a dog’s point of view even part of the time can’t easy but sure is fun to read!

All the characters have plenty of room to evolve in future installments so I hope the next one in the series is re-released and there are more stories to follow! Want that doggy head out the window bliss, pick up this book today!!

  1. Just looked for this one on my library website. Woohoo – they even have it in large print! It was published in 2006 so I will be one of the “old” readers.
    Thanks for this one I love stories with animals.

  2. I love these sort of books and was not familiar with this one. I appreciate the review and the introduction. I would like to give it a try.
