    • I've read and loved (and also purchased) every one of the six previous books in this series. So I really hate to say it, but this seventh book, and also the one before it, just haven't clicked with me. I still adore Chet the dog and find his observations on all things human to be terribly entertaining. I wish my dog was as smart as Chet is and knew how to read my moods and emotions the way he does with Bernie. Chet the dog is not the problem with these last two books. Maybe it's that the writing [...]


    • Chet may be one brilliant bastard (for a dog), but I read this during my darker days where the nights were long and the radiator was cold, and it’s hard to read (or sleep) when you have a flashlight shined in your eyes every half-hour. Sure, the cabin was fun for the first day or so, and I even pretended to like it, but not sleeping gets old really fast.And so does Chet. Something was amiss, and I don’t think it was the lack of bacon bits. Sure, Suzie Sanchez makes an appearance, and where w [...]


    • I just love Chet, the dog in the Chet and Bernie mysteries by Spencer Quinn. And, in the course ofthe series, I've grown to respect Bernie Little, the owner of the Little Detective Agency. But, the last two books have taken place away from home, Arizona. And, with the latest one, Paw and Order, I may be giving up. "Every dog has its day", and maybe Chet's is over for me.After finishing up a case in Louisiana, Bernie and Chet decide to take a detour to Washington, D.C. where Bernie's journalist g [...]


    • Another fun Chet and Bernie mystery. I enjoyed the change of location. One star lost for some of the rougher language that I don't enjoy, words that add nothing (not even reality) to the story.


    • Great series. I think I've read them all. For mystery fans who ever never read a mystery from a dog's persepective these are very fun, well crafted, easy reads. Love em!


    • Chet and Bernie of the Little Detective Agency travel to Washington to visit Bernie’s girlfriend Suzie Sanchez. Hoping to smooth over some “misunderstandings” the couple are having, Bernie and Chet arrive unannounced – probably not a good thing – they arrive at Suzie’s only to discover her having an intimate looking chat with debonair Englishman, Eben St. John. Jealousy rears its ugly head until Suzie explains that St. John is her source for an international story she is investigatin [...]


    • Woof, woof, woof, woof - make that 4 stars for the 7th installment in the life of Chet, the lovable pooch whose equally lovable owner, Bernie, operates the Little Detective Agency (Little is his last name). Chet - who narrates each of the books in the series - flunked out of K-9 school on the last day (he claims a cat was at fault).In addition to being rooted in a good story, the books are a hoot because of Chet's take on things. Throughout, there are doggie "asides" to make you smile (well, the [...]


    • Paw and Order is another great Chet and Bernie mystery by Spencer Quinn. I'm glad that Netgalley gave me the opportunity to read a preview version. After wrapping up loose end in Louisiana, Bernie and Chet head to Washington, DC to patch things up with Suzie after she misunderstood an encounter involving Chet, Bernie, and a girl on a houseboat. I had liked the road trip diversion in The Sound and the Furry. The series had gotten a little slow, and getting out of town added a freshness to the Che [...]


    • Paw and Order by Spencer Quinn is the seventh book in the Chet And Bernie Mystery Series and it’s a great book. This book finds Chet and Bernie traveling to Washington, D.C. to visit Bernie’s girlfriend, Suzie. But as usual, when Chet is involved, things do not go as planned and the two find themselves involved in a murder mystery. Will they be able to figure out the case before they are silenced permanently?I just love the writing style of this book. The story is told from Chet, the dog’s [...]


    • “Paw and Order”, by Spencer Quinn, published by Atria Books.Category – Mystery/Thriller Publication Date – August 05, 2014This is the seventh book in a wonderful series that can be enjoyed by all readers. They should be read in order because there is a link between each book. The novels feature Private Investigator Bernie and his dog, who flunked out of K-9 training, Chet (Chet the Jet).Bernie’s girlfriend, Suzie Sanchez, has moved to Washington, D.C. to pursue a career in journalism. [...]


    • I totally love this series, but this installment did not have the impact of the previous six books, and I think it was because the author got sidetracked by trying to make the plot a little too clever.The previous episode, THE SOUND AND THE FURRY, took Chet and Bernie to Louisiana, where Chet did quite well for himself in the Bayou.This episode, PAW AND ORDER, is a last-minute detour they made to Washington DC. Faced with the dilemma of whether to return to Arizona or meet up with Suzie in DC, B [...]


    • Paw and Order by Spencer Quinn★★★.5Chet and Bernie head to Washington, DC because Bernie is interested in seeing his girlfriend, Suzie Sanchez. Chet doesn’t mind, he likes Suzie and besides, she keeps snacks for him in her car. However, Chet soon finds out that all is not well when they get there. One of Suzie’s sources is murdered and this strange bird with no eyes that no one else notices keeps coming by. When he’s not distracted by thought of food, the scents of members of the nat [...]


    • This is the 7th book in the series, and frankly, I was disappointed. It is my least favorite. I can't even explain why, it just seemed off. I see from reading other reviews that several people felt the same. Also, in the summary on the cover and in the blurbs, they mention that Chet meets a guinea pig, like it is a pivitol moment in the book. In fact, it is not until 20 pages to the end that he finally meets the pig. Less than two pages are devoted to this, and you never hear about it again. Des [...]


    • As a dog lover I've really enjoyed this series so far, but I am giving this book an "ok" rating. Chet the dog and his owner Bernie are PIs. The story is narrated by Chet. I like the "dog's eye view" narration but it seemed a little stale in this book. Also the romance angle didn't really appeal and I got bored through the "relationship issues" bits of the book. That said I will still happily read the next book in this series (if there is one) as I've still really enjoyed the series overall.


    • Another exciting adventure with Chet and Bernie with Chet narrating, of course. This time they are visiting Suzie in Washington, DC. One of Suzie's sources is killed and Chet and Bernie are on the case. Chet smells,hears and sees more than Bernie but there is no stopping these two until the case is solved. This series gets better with each new book.


    • As usual, I thoroughly enjoyed Chet the dog's hilarious narration of this latest installment in the Chet & Bernie PI series. However, I did have some problem following the plot and wasn't quite sure just what had happened in the end. This one is worth reading more for the doggy point of view than for the mystery itself.



    • The premise of the books gets old. I get the fact that dogs have short attention spans but to re-live old cases, got a little old. Enough already


    • openbooksociety/article/paBrought to you by OBS reviewer JoAnneFor those of you who have never read any of these wonderful mysteries, Bernie Little is a private investigator, along with his partner, Chet. Together they will take on practically any case, and they are very good at what they do. There is an early scene in this book in which Chet and Bernie are at a barbeque restaurant full of bikers. In the ensuing action, you discover that Bernie is no ordinary detective. He is not only able to ho [...]


    • Paw and OrderBy Spencer QuinnAtria BooksAugust 5, 2014ISBN: 978-1-476-70340-4Hardcover, 304 pp $25.00/29.99 CA$Reviewed by Gloria FeitChet and Bernie return in the seventh and newest book in the series, each book in which I have loved, despite the fact that I usually avoid books with talking animals. But this particular four-legged private investigator, Chet the Dog, and Bernie Little, his partner in the Little Detective Agency, defies the expected rules of the genre. “Chet the Jet,” as he t [...]


    • again, I thoroughly enjoyed this book in the Chet & Bernie seriesfe to say that this is one of my all time favorite series. I was really glad to see Suzie back in this novel (missed her in the previous book) & hoping she will be in the next book as well. It was definitely a different setting in DC versus the Valley as well, but had a nice touch to it.It took me a little longer to read this book than normal, not because of the book itself, but because of some family matters going on, but [...]


    • This seventh entry in the series of mysteries presented from the viewpoint of Chet the Jet (a dog) is just as entertaining as the other books I’ve read in this series. It takes a little while to accustom yourself to the fact that Chet is going to be narrating the entire book and his human, Bernie Little of the Little Detective Agency, will be represented by what the dog hears and observes. Spencer Quinn writes the thoughts of Chet so realistically that I find myself watching my own dogs and wo [...]


    • Fun read but some things were "over my head" just like Chet's, Uninteresting storylineUp until this book I had only read the first book in this series. I remember how I thoroughly enjoyed it so when I saw this book I jumped at the opportunity to read it. I had hoped it would be okay just jumping into the series without reading several of the other books in the series. Although it was okay as a stand-alone book, there were many references to events that had happened in previous books. I felt like [...]


    • Once again, another strong outing for Chet (the dog) and Bernie. This time they decide to go and visit Washington D.C. where Bernie's girlfriend, reporter Suzie Sanchez, has relocated to work for the Washington Post. Immediately, our heroes become embroiled in a mystery that involves a potential presidential candidate, spies, and other types. Chet continues to amaze me, as a canine writer, by his confusion by human idioms and his ability to become distracted for a moment from the action as his t [...]


    • “If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog.” – Harry S. TrumanSpencer Quinn has enthralled me, once again, with another tail-wagging installment in the Chet and Bernie Mystery series – the series where the unreliable K9 narrator makes for reliably great entertainment with each and every installment. “Paw and Order,” 7th in the series, is a frolicking whodunit foray into The Beltway’s underworld of suits, “spooks” and sleuths – where winsome smiles harbor chilling guile, a [...]


    • I read Dog On It and enjoyed it so when I saw Paw and Order on the shelf at the library, I decided I needed to pick it up. After all, I am a sucker for such clever titles.Bernie is a private eye who has Chet, a K-9 school drop-out as his side kick. They were on their way back home after solving a case when Bernie decides to take a detour and go to DC to visit his girlfriend, Suzie Sanchez. Suzie, a journalist has recently moved to DC to take a job as a reporter for the Washington Post. When Bern [...]


    • My View:Chet you are my hero!I love reading these hilarious doggy romps into the world of crime fiction that Chet narrates with such charm, innocence and loyalty. I love hearing Chet’s voice as he takes everything stated literally and tries to find meaning in this chaos known as language and conversation. Chet is amazing; he has great powers of observation, he has a great memory (well almost as long as the conversation/place/person wasn’t too far back in history), he has a tremendous appetit [...]


    • I like Chet and Bernie (that's Bernie Little, PI and his 100+ pound canine pal, Chet) a lot, but I think it's getting a bit difficult for the author to keep this fresh. The books are told from Chet's point of view, and thus are a bit repetitive. Let's face it, smart or not, he's a dog. The reader does a great job with Chet's wandering mind and drifting off to sleep now and then, but as I say, after 7 books I think there's only so much you can do. Even without full disclosure about the clues beca [...]


    • Chet and Bernie of the Little Detective Agency decide to visit Suzie Sanchez in Washington, DC, where she has moved to work for the Washington Post. Chet misses Suzie but not as much as Bernie. Chet is the four-legged member of the Little Detective Agency who takes down the perps that Bernie uncovers. This time, Suzie and Bernie are on the trail of Russian spies and national security. It's all very exciting, especially when Chet forgets himself and bites someone on the ankle. I adore Chet and hi [...]


    • Another fun story narrated by Chet the dog. Spencer Quinn knows dogs and their mannerisms and once again I read this, not for the mystery, but to see Chet's funny thoughts and actions. Although I had a good bit of the mystery figured out before I finished the book, I was not disappointed by Chet's often hilarious take on things.
