My Favorite Summer Read

Summer has faded away, but the memory of my favorite summer read hasn’t.   With my toes in the sand I journeyed with The Returns through their second crime solving adventure in M.K. Clinton’s book The Returns 2; Showstoppers!

M.K. Clinton's The Returns and The Returns 2; Showstoppers are two of my favorite dog books!

 One of my favorite lines from Showstoppers is;

“If you can be content with who you are, how you look, and then try every day to make a difference to someone else, then it leads to a wonderful life.  It’s a shame more humans can’t grasp that fact.”  - M.K. Clinton

In Showstoppers, a devious team of individuals are stealing show dogs as part of a very sinister plot!  This book takes you from New Orleans to New York City.  I’ve never been to New Orleans but as a native New Yorker I can say that M.K. captured the vibe of New York City perfectly!

Sitting outside reading a great novel by M.K. Clinton with a hot cup of tea!
Enjoy a hot cup of tea, beautiful Fall weather, and a great book!
A new Return is introduced in Showstoppers who will steal your heart!  It’s funny, when a new character is introduced to a series, it usually takes a lot to get me to like them.   Not this time, I fell in love instantly!

So M.K, when can we expect a third book?  I’m thirsty for more Returns adventure, especially with the newest addition to The Returns team……

I love to relax with a hot beverage and a great book!
