#MacmillanAudio Review of Santa's Little Yelpers by David Rosenfelt

Whether you're just starting (naughty on you) your holiday shopping or if you're putting the last bow on the gifts under the tree, Santa's Little Yelpers by David Rosenfelt should be playing through your earbuds. I reviewed the print copy of this Christmas chiller for the last copy of Mystery Scene Magazine so to see my full review be sure and buy a copy wherever quality magazines are sold. But I also listened to the #MacmillanAudio edition and I'm happy to share it with you all here.

"Listening to Grover Gardner narrating a David Rosenfelt novel is like sliding into favorite slippers at the end of a long day: One feels the joyful gratification of a perfect fit."—AudioFile Magazine on Bark of Night

Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his humorous investigating team return in Santa's Little Yelpers, the next Yuletide mystery in David Rosenfelt’s bestselling series.

'Tis the season in Paterson, New Jersey: Lawyer Andy Carpenter and his golden retriever, Tara, are surrounded by holiday cheer. It’s even spread to the Tara Foundation. The dog rescue organization, not used to having puppies, has their hands full with a recent litter. Eight puppies are a lot to handle, and Andy is relieved when his co-worker Chris Myers agrees to foster them.

Myers, a newer employee at the Tara Foundation, did time for a crime he swears he didn’t commit. When Myers discovers a key witness against him lied on the stand, he goes to Andy to ask for representation in getting the conviction overturned. Myers thinks they can have this wrapped up by Christmas, no problem.

But when the witness is murdered, and Myers is arrested for the crime, things go from bad to worse. Suddenly, it’s all elves on deck to make a list and check it twice, so they can prove Myers is innocent.

A Macmillan Audio production from Minotaur Books.

My #MacmillanAudio Review:

Santa’s Little Yelpers
Andy Carpenter #26
David Rosenfelt



I reviewed the print edition of Santa’s Little Yelpers for the final issue of Mystery Scene Magazine (so sad) so you can see my entire review of the print edition in issue #174.

The audio book narrated by Grover Gardner is the best way to experience this book in my humble opinion, reading alone is great but Grover instills all the emotion, angst and drama that reading alone just can’t deliver. He’s the perfect Andy is fabulous at the rest of the eclectic cast of characters and his expert recounting will let the listening audience perfectly visualize the story. Now all we need is the next book in the series!

About the author:
is the Edgar-nominated and Shamus Award-winning author of more than twenty Andy Carpenter novels, including One Dog Night, Collared, and Deck the Hounds; its spinoff series, The K-Team; the Doug Brock thriller series, which starts with Fade to Black; and stand-alone thrillers including Heart of a Killer and On Borrowed Time. Rosenfelt and his wife live in Maine with an ever-changing pack of rescue dogs. Their epic cross-country move with 25 of these dogs, culminating in the creation of the Tara Foundation, is chronicled in Dogtripping.
