I only read when my OCD kicks in

I enjoy reading, however, the bulk of reading only occurs while I am in an OCD focus zone. Last year I read over 70 books but I didn't pick up a book from August 2013 until March 25, 2014... I have already read 3 books this year!

Murder Strikes a Pose (A Downward Dog Mystery)

Murder Strikes a Pose - Tracy Weber Tracy Weber writes with wit and irony and this is a funny and fun loving story.

In a nutshell this book falls short of satisfaction. The story is all about the dog Bella, George the homeless guy, and Kate the yoga instructor. You are left wanting more and the book feels like it ends without getting to know the characters.

The big negative for me is that there is very little character development. The relationships are fast paced and quite honestly the only character that is completely understood and is a logical fit is Jake.

Breakdown Review:

Storyline: I give 3 out of 5 stars fast, exciting, and yet quite predictable, however, there is a cliff hanger at the end that doesn't make sense because you don't even know what happens to Bella.

Writing style: 4 out of 5 stars. A very easy and fast paced read. Would be fine for young teens. There is only one somewhat boring romantic scene. I would definitely read more from Tracy Weber.

Depth/Inspiration: 3 out of 5 stars. Despite the flaws this book is bound to inspire the creative gene in others. It is about the salvation of the dog Bella.

Entertainment/Education value: 3 out of 5 stars. Not as entertaining as the book cover would lead it to be. It was an "ok" story but the book cover has a very funny, comical and entertaining picture and feel to it that is sure to sell the product. I give the cover a 5 star rating without a doubt.
