Has anyone read the book?? My mom got it for me as a present and gave it to me today... I am not the avid reader I used to be; but may have to sit down and read this one!



"When the glowing form of a beloved deceased Chihuahua appears, is it a ghost, or is someone teaching a dead dog new tricks – like murder?

Tripping Magazine is a quirky low-budget magazine that reports on travel destinations for believers in the paranormal. A few fake ghosts away from throwing in the towel, the Tripping staff get the tip of a lifetime when they get a call from Charlotte Baskerville, the rich founder of a clothing company for small dogs. Charlotte thinks that her Chihuahua, Petey, has come back from the dead, and she’s desperate for someone to come verify his appearances.

The magazine’s three-person reporting team travels to Manitou Springs, Colorado, sure that the ghostly dog will be a work of fiction. But, when they arrive, they see evidence of Petey with their own eyes. And he’s not just floating by – he’s howling advice and spelling out threats with tiny paw prints. Is the ghost real, or is the whole phenomenon an elaborate ruse?

The Tripping team must navigate the kooky world of coffin races, scheming husbands, and doggie fashion to solve the mystery – and get their story written at the same time. Uproariously funny and a great mystery to boot, Chihuahua of the Baskervilles is sure to leave you in stitches."

I just wanted to say thanks for pointing this book out to me. I bought it for my Nook and just finished it. It was more than I would typically pay for that genre but I have a gift card from Christmas. :) I really enjoyed it. There is even a free short story with the same people for the Nook. Maybe kindle has it too? I have no idea

I can't believe I didn't post a while back but I DID finish reading it. (Keeping it in the bathroom makes it really easy... but then my potty breaks started getting longer and longer until finally I caved and sat down one evening to finish it LOL.)

I really liked it- you can tell the author actually knew something about chihuahuas just in how she describes some of their behavior; it is SO like some of my girls!

I am definitely not much of a reader anymore... my OCD makes it difficult to sit down and actually focus on something.. after a while I realize I've just been flipping pages and didn't retain anything so I stop. =/
