    First Sentence: It wasn't the presence of the tractor trailer that caused John Paxos to take notice. Attorney Andy Carpenter keeps trying to retire but when his wife's ex-boyfriend, ex-cop and ex-private investigator Dave Kramer, is accused of murder, he has no choice but to agree t...

    I have not read many books in this series. In fact, I turned my one friend into a true fan of this author's. She has raved about his series and author for quite a while now. So, I finally decided to jump in and read this book. It was like I had been a reader for years. Instantly, I con...

    When the real world has become more or less unbearable, what a delight it is to be able to relax inside the wacky world of Andy Carpenter. This is book #17 of this stand-up comedy/mystery/dog-related legal procedural crime series. I have not read all of them, but it?s not a problem t...

    Another great one by David Rosenfelt! As a dog lover, this is a favorite series and I appreciate the ARC from #netgalley, David Rosenfelt and St. Martins Press. ...

    This is Rosenfelt's latest Andy Carpenter book. I believe that it is his writing style that makes what would be an average book fun to read. You just find yourself smiling in an empty room while reading his books. The plot is OK. The characters are all there. The action was a little le...

    Another great addition to a series that is totally fun and for a lawyer doesn't spend too much time in court and on legal proceedings. As always, the same great characters and lots of witty banter and an inexplicable crime. I look forward to every book that Rosenfelt writes in this ser...

    Ah, another Andy Carpenter book. I look forward to these every year, moreso lately because they've stopped being completely ridiculous. I mean, they're still ridiculous, but Andy isn't singlehandedly thwarting terrorists now (now, he involves the FBI!). Not much to say about this one b...

    ? ? ? 1/2 (rounded up) This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- At an early age, Andy Carpenter discovered that he couldn't hit a curve-ball and therefore had to give up on his dreams of playing in the majors and fall back to following in his father's footste...

    I needed this book! I?ve had a bad run of several mediocre books. I needed fun! And Andy Carpenter always delivers. These books just possess a sardonic wit that I really enjoy. What should be a simple case of self defense goes awry when a key piece of evidence is missing. Of co...

    This was a typical Andy Carpenter book. All the familiar characters are mentioned, and there are lots of dogs. Andy was more mellow and relaxed than usual, but the attitude was still there. His client was Laurie's old boyfriend, who was charged with murder, but Andy's cases are never t...

    July 17 update: This book is now available! Every book in the Andy Carpenter series by David Rosenfelt is a prize. Rescued is the latest book in this series. You can read the book by itself (rather than as part of the series), and I guarantee it will make you want to grab all the ot...

    Criminal attorney Andy Carpenter is not happy when he winds up defending his wife's ex-fiancee on a murder charge. The client was investigating the death of the CEO of a robotics company. A truckload of rescue dogs is found but they have no real destination. Rosenfelt has produced anot...

    RESCUED......Its a Winner! If your an animal lover, you'll love David Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series too for there is nothing Andy hates worse in the world than "animals being hurt, injured or abused." Oh, and Willie, "If there is a human identified with abusing a dog, and Willie is...

    Strong entry into one of my favorite series. Plot is interesting but secondary to the character relationships and sharp wit and banter that permeates the pages. ...

    I like the premise; and the background of the dog shelter and the hero's dedication to Tara Foundation--named after Tara, his golden retriever--is well done. Andy Carpenter, a lawyer, doesn't have to work (believable setup), but he has a fantastic investigative team to back him up when...

    I am a David Rosenfelt / Andy Carpenter groupie. What can I say? Well, I guess I could say: I am a David Rosenfelt / Andy Carpenter groupie. Well, I guess I already said that. But, you are still reading me--aren't you. When I read a Carpenter novel--I picture Andy looking just like Dav...

    When I read an Andy Carpenter book, I know I?m good hands. This week we had to say goodbye to Murphy, our 12-year old Newfoundland dog. There is no other book that I could have read while simply trying to get from one day to the next, adjusting to this new life without him. Rescue...

    3 1/2 stars. Some of Andy Carpenter's sarcastic comments are wearing thin. Although I liked the book, there was a big leap to a conclusion at the end. I didn't feel that it was explained how Andy figured it out, even though the reader had the facts. ...

    There are going to be some spoilers here. As usual these books are fun, funny and full of dogs. Andy?s asides are always funny. The mystery is a bit strange but Andy seems to get his gang together to puzzle it out. I have several questions: If everyone thought the padded sect...

    I always love an Andy Carpenter mystery. The writing is great--Andy's sense of humor makes me laugh out loud when reading it. And to top it off Andy (David Rosenfelt) loves dogs so they always play a part in these books! ...

    Another hit by David Rosenfelt. This time Andy solves a complicated murder involving a dog rescue operation which very cleverly covered up the true crime. This was the audio version and I must admit, this is one series where I enjoy the audio version more than the novel?when I read o...

    Unfortunately, I finished it. Now I have to wait for the next one. Ugh! Loved it, though. Wonderful characters in the series, they were all there. Sometimes I wonder how he comes up with these plots. Definitely keep you on your toes as you read. Don't even try to figure out what is go...

    I love the Andy Carpenter books. This was great. You will enjoy it as much as any of the others. However, I do think the plots are changing a bit since Andy married Laurie and adopted Ricky. I guess Andy is growing as a person. ...
