Waiting On Wednesday (160) @ChetTheDog @ForgeReads

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that
spotlights upcoming releases that I’m really
looking forward to. Waiting On Wednesday
is the creation of Jill at Breaking the Spine.
This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

Tender Is the Bite
A Chet & Bernie Mystery #11
Spencer Quinn
Forge Books, July 2021
Mystery, Private Investigators

From the publisher—

Chet and Bernie are contacted by a terribly scared young woman who seems to want their help. Before she can even tell them her name, she flees in panic. But in that brief meeting Chet sniffs out an important secret about her, a secret at the heart of the mystery he and Bernie set out to solve.

It’s a case with no client and no crime and yet great danger, with the duo facing a powerful politician who has a lot to lose. Their only hope lies with a ferret named Griffie who adores Bernie. Is there room for a ferret in the Chet and Bernie relationship? That’s the challenge Chet faces, the biggest of his career. Hanging in the balance are the lives of two mistreated young women and the future of the whole state.

Why am I waiting so eagerly? To be honest, I can’t imagine NOT waiting eagerly. I know some readers shy away from animal sleuths but nobody does it better than Mr. Quinn and having Chet tell these tales from his point of view never gets old. This private eye duo is good at what they do even if Chet is sometimes thrown off track by random squirrels and other distractions and they’re just plain fun to spend time with. This time, the fate of their corner of the universe seems to be in peril and I so want to know what’s going to happen with Griffie 😃.
