    1 thought on “3 Sleuths, 2 Dogs, 1 Murder

    1. Two sisters have become private detectives after the kids move out. When their little sister finds out the guy she's been dating is not only married but accused of murdering his wife she joins with her sisters in proving him innocent.Lots of excitement in a good mystery.

    2. This is one of those “Cozy” mysteries that you either love or hate. Some of these ones, I really haven’t enjoyed through lack of substance, however this one is different. Take that one of the sisters does “Correction exercises” which consists of correcting anonymously the grammar of others (hope this is correct!!) Anyone who can write that into a mystery has my respect!There is a laugh in most chapters and a decent storyline. Characters are mostly developed, the ones that aren’t get [...]

    3. I loved this book! I listened to the audiobook, which is done by 3 narrators for the 3 sisters' point of view, and it was so good! I immediately bought the first book in the series (this was my first Maggie Pill), and will buy the next one when it comes out. This is my favorite type of mystery - not too violent or upsetting, but it still draws you right in and gets you interested in all the characters. Then you have to keep up with the series to see what happens to the people involved. I also ap [...]

    4. This is the second book in a series called "The Sleuth Sisters Mysteries". This is a fun series about three sisters of mature age which joint hands to defend the innocents and fight crime. This book is full of adventure, great plots and intelligent solutioning. I love how the sisters interact they complete one and another. This is a light reading; perfect for the beach or a road trip. I recommend you read the first book before starting this one so you can get to know the characters.

    5. Confused,yes I am3 sisters, alternating chapters written in the first person. I never straightened them out. Good, but could have been better.

    6. 3 narrators, one drawn out but vague story. There really isn't a mystery, it's fairly obvious that the telling is more of a memory than an in-person scenario. Frankly, the technique is basic creative writing, and a bit transparent. I easily lost track of who was doing or thinking of doing what to whom. The characters were never developed. One sis was a closet grammar-fiend. That was just stupid. I wouldn't recommend this book, but maybe they have something else to offer. IF all the pages are the [...]

    7. Plenty action and excitement in this cozy mystery. Only annoying bit was Barbara having to correct grammar that she spotted on notices. Seemed pointless to the story. Good mystery and the main characters, including the dogs, were really good. The secondary characters added plenty to the story as did the weather! A very pleasant read.

    8. A charming book not only about murder but about the relationship between sister, something close to my heart. Pill has written a few twists and turns in the plot that kept me awake and reading. A good book.

    9. I like the sisters especially Barb. the POVs are marked clearly and kept straight, so it works pretty well.

    10. Loved itI loved this book. It was clean and well written without foul language or adult situations. I recommend this book.

    11. Book two in the series & I'm still enjoying this author.Not too complicated but plausible & interesting. Hoping the characters keep growing & don't settle too much into their personality traits.

    12. This light-hearted murder mystery is told by each of the three sisters own point of view from chapter to chapter. I like that. It’s like getting to be alone with each one of their bias and rivaling sibling opinions to find out what they really think of each other outside of the being polite dialog to their sister’s face. It is like being each of the sisters best friends, giving me insight about why each one is acting the way they are when the other is around. I just wish now I would have rea [...]

    13. 3 Sleuths, 2 Dogs, 1 Murder, The Sleuth Sisters, Book #2by Maggie PillMaggie Pill also writes under the name Peg Herring, so although Pill doesn't have a large list of published work, Herring does. This experience shows in the writing style, and in the editing and publishing. This is the 2nd book in the series. I have the 1st on my Kindle -- don't know why I didn't read it first, but I didn't, so now I'll back track to read it before looking into the 3rd in the series. The main characters are th [...]

    14. Three adult sisters live in a small town in snowy Michigan. Retta, Barb, and Faye couldn’t be more different. They are nicely unique characters, sisters who love one another and do manage some sisterly sniping, as well. Barb and Faye run the only detective agency in town and are handed a case in which a man is accused of murdering his wife, maybe with the motive of pursuing sister Retta! The accused man has been lying to Retta, and it seems like a skill he is good at the more things progress. [...]

    15. As was the case with Maggie Pill's first book, The Sleuth Sisters, will leave you thoroughly engrossed in the story. I was drawn into the story immediately and had a hard time putting it down. Maggie Pill has a way with her writing that keeps you on the edge of your seat as she takes your deeper into the dangerous case the sisters are working on. You will fall in love with Barb, Faye and even Retta as they struggle to help each other and keep their client safe. You will forget that the sisters a [...]

    16. Bond of sistersAnother new author and a great cosy mystery. The author had a way of making you a part of the story. As one who has a great sister I could relate to the three sisters in the book. Gee another new author to start reading her books

    17. This is the second of a three part series. In this one the sleuths are sisters who have their own PI business. The sisters get involved in a case where the husband is accused of killing his wife, at first the sisters aren't interested in taking the case until they find out their other sister has been involved with the suspect. Retta has no idea her gentleman friend is married until he is accused of his wife's murder. Retta, Barb and Faye get caught up in trying to find out if he, Winston is guil [...]

    18. Barbara, Faye, and Retta return for another adventure in 3 Sleuths, 2 Dogs, 1 Murder by Maggie Pill. The older two sisters, the owners and managers of the Smart Detective Agency, call Retta, their younger sister, to ask if she has been dating Winston Darrow, who has hired them because he has been accused of murdering his wife. Realizing that Retta will be trashed in the media as "the other woman" for whom Win allegedly committed this murder, the sisters agree to investigate the case and get embr [...]

    19. Three sisters, who don't always get along, find themselves faced with their second case, proving the innocence of Winston Darrow. With multiple people not who they seem to be, these brave ladies might be over their head.Coming into the middle of series is always a risk. Would there be enough details for a new reader to not be confused? I can tell you that this book did not leave me in the dust. It hit the ground running, imparting enough for me to get a strong grasp on these characters, without [...]

    20. Retta is innocently shopping for shoes from the comfort of her recliner when she gets a call from her sister, Faye. Faye asks if she has been seeing Winstow Darrow. Retta knows darned good and well that Faye already knows the answer to that question but she bites her tongue and answers yes. Faye then proceeds to tell her that Win has been arrested for murder and it's for murdering his wife. Retta isn't sure what upsets her the most, the murder charge or the fact that Win never told her he was/ha [...]

    21. This book grew on me.When I first started reading the book, I was thrown off by the short chapters and change of POV with every chapter. I felt like I wasn't sure who was narrating at any given time. However, as the book progressed, I was able to sort out the different characters and appreciate the humor in the story. One of the sisters belongs to the unsung organization of grammar police, and I enjoyed her escapades, especially since I've had those urges myself. By the end of the book, I found [...]

    22. I paid for this book, #2 in the Sleuth Sisters mystery series and pre-ordered #3 (will be delivered automatically 5/30) based on my enjoyment of #1, a free download from via BookBub.Just finished #2. Great story. Love these characters. Looking forward to more adventures of the Sleuth Sisters, their men, and their dogs! The only thing I'm not fond of is the setting, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the winter.ow, cold and snowmobiles!

    23. Loved itI really enjoyed this book. I discovered cozy mysteries a short time ago and have gotten hooked on them. While this one does not have you trying to figure out who committed the murder, it does have a wild adventure with lots of humor included. I liked that there were just enough well drawn characters that I could keep them straight. I'm not big on coping with snow and cold and wet myself but kind of enjoyed reading about other people doing it. Enjoy.

    24. This was the first book I've read by this author. The title caught my eye and it didn't disappoint. Story of 3 women (sisters), two of them run a detective agency. The third sister's "boyfriend" is accused of murdering his wife (she didn't know) and off we go. Just a fun read; not a lot of surprises, but definitely kept my interest and I wanted to know how it ended. I would definitely read another book by this author.

    25. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Interesting concept of the naming the chapters after each sister as each chapter is told from that sister's perspective.Dogs, what can I say? What's not to love when you're talking about dogs.Dale's disability was also an interesting concept, however, I got the impression you might be leaving the door open for marital break up down the road. I hope not.Characters are satisfactorily developed and the tale wrapped up well.I'd recommend this one.

    26. An easy to devour, well written cosy mystery containing just enough excitement and tension to keep things interesting without any amount of cheese. The characters felt realistic and engaging, and even the switching first person pov between each chapter (which I usually find off putting in a book) was made to work well and easy to follow. I would definitely consider reading the other books in this series.
