    One thought on “Monty and Me”

    1. 4 stars is a very good rating from me for a book like this, partly because I am not a cosy mystery fan but also because I am not really keen on applying human characteristics to animals. So why did I read it? For a challenge of course:)This is why challenges are good because they introduce you to books you would otherwise never pick up at all. And sometimes they turn out to be good books! In this case Monty the Labrador, failed Guide Dog for the Blind due to his passion for food, turns detective [...]

    2. I was intrigued when I saw this book announced. Then I was sceptical, about a book written partly from a dogs perspective, and finally decided to be brave and request a review copy. That was the best decision I have made. This book is amazing. I have no idea where to start in reviewing this. What I do know is this is the first of a brand new series, and I can't wait to meet Rose Sidebottom and Monty again. This is a great mix of mystery as well as large amounts of book written from Monty's persp [...]

    3. What a fantastic mystery with a pair of detectives that are smart and fun. Rose is a police woman in training as a detective and her new pet, Monty, the witness to his owner's murder. I love the fact that Monty narrates every other chapter and has the help of the animal world at his paws. Anyone who loves animals of any kind will fall for Monty. The ending set up a perfect beginning for book two and I'll be watching for it.

    4. Pure joy to read! Intense, insightful and fun!Monty and Me took me by surprise, not only because of the fact that it is a crime story told from the perspective of a dog (how cool is that, all you dog fans out there;)?), but by its wonderfully positive humour and charming style. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this ARC which I received in exchange for an honest review.By page 18 I had already realized that I had smiled, giggled and even laughed more than 10 times. Anyone who loves either reading or [...]

    5. Monty and Me by Louisa Bennett is a cute and humorous cozy mystery. Monty is a Golden Retriever (about three years old in human years) and was injured trying to save his owner, Professor Patrick Salt. Professor Salt did not make it, and Monty is very sad. Monty, though, is very determined to find the man who killed his master and friend.Trainee Detective Constable Rose Sidebottom (can you imagine how the kids made fun of her in school) was at the scene and saw Monty. Rose went and adopted Monty [...]

    6. I absolutely loved this book. Read it in a day, couldn't put it down. It is a police procedural with a little bit extra, one of the witnesses to the crime is a dog, Monty. His owner has been murdered and he saw it all. He has vital evidence that could assist the police in catching the bad guy but how does a dog get that evidence over to the police without breaking any of the doggie rules. Enter the doggie Detective!Monty is lucky enough to get adopted by one of the detectives on the team - train [...]

    7. 4.5 stars!I loved Monty and Me. The book was unique, entertaining, quirky and uplifting. Mostly written from Monty the dog's POV, the story follows trainee detective Rose Sidebottom and Monty as they try to solve the murder of Monty's master. Along the way Monty is assisted/hindered by Betty the rat, Dante the magpie and the gorgeous Celeste, a rather beguiling ladybird.Sounds strange, I know, but Monty and Me is utterly bewitching and fun from start to finish. It's a comedic murder mystery and [...]

    8. I loved this one- a cosy mystery told from the canine point of view! Monty is the dog detective whose owner has been murdered. The policewoman investigating the case takes him in. Monty wants to trace the killer.His point of view is given in some of the chapters and he has help from the animal fraternity to trace the killer. Such a cute take on a mystery story- from a dog crazy lady!Looking forward to the next in the series! Monty is a canine hero!With many thanks to NetGalley for the chance to [...]

    9. I really enjoyed reading this book, I loved the story and best of all I loved Monty. He is everything you would want from a dog and he has a really good nose which is helping him track down the killer of his beloved master. I thought all the characters were great I liked Rose who is the next person Monty goes to live with and he helps her too. Wonderful little story that you just wont want to miss out on.

    10. This book was a delightful read for me. I normally am not a great lover of the cosy fiction, however, Monty and Me is the best in this genre that I have read for some time.I immediately fell in love with Monty and his animal and human friends. The animal antics and communication (of course you have to suspend belief) were great. I liked the characters, setting and the mystery which kept my guessing till towards the end.The hardcover copy of book (library loan) was extremely attractive looking. T [...]

    11. Posted in full reviewedthebook/2015 Occasionally you read a book that when you put down, you kind of wonder what on earth you’ve just been reading. That isn’t always a good thing but with Monty and Me, it definitely was. Original, entertaining and very unique, Monty and Me is a book that will have you helplessly uttering the word ‘aww’ on several occasions but also it will have you completely wrapped up in the mystery of discovering who killed Monty’s master. Rose Sidebottom is a train [...]

    12. I would like to thank the publisher and Alice at Lightbrigade PR for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.When I first heard about this book I wasn't sure what to make of it as in parts it is written from the POV of Monty the Dog. I will say that I really enjoyed this and the experience of Monty and his friends. I love that dog's communicate via 'weemails' and that a dog is able to read and access a laptop.Monty is very lucky to be rescued by trainee Detective [...]

    13. Review by ireadnovels.wordpressI loved reading about this loveable detective dog Monty, this is a must-have book this Christmas for animal lovers everywhere. I actually think it be great hearing more about the detective dog Monty in future books. Louisa Bennet's Golden Retriever, Pickles is the inspiration for Monty. Rose Sidebottom is a trainee detective, who has an embarrassing surname, and she has heard every single bottom joke invented. When the dog Monty's master is stabbed to death Monty t [...]

    14. A dog detective? Bit far fetched? Perhaps, but that doesn’t detract from this engaging and enjoyable book.I thought the descriptions of the world through the eyes (or maybe nose) of a dog were quite brilliant. Who knew about a ladybird’s secret weapon?I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to reading more about Monty and Rose.Thanks to Netgallery for giving me the chance to read and review this delightful book- definitely worth five stars from me.

    15. People who like reading and who like dogs, I thoroughly recommend Monty and Me. I don't know how she's done it, but somehow Louisa has managed to write a thrilling detective story, suitable for adults, starring Monty Dogdetective, the golden retriever who can read, speaks rat, squirrel, bird, insect and fish, and an all-round hero to rival Inspector Rex. I laughed, I cried, I shirked work to finish the last chapters!

    16. 4.5 stars ☺️This book was so much fun, it combines a genuinely interesting murder mystery with an insight into the workings of the canine mind.Monty is a fantastic character and I am looking forward to his blog which is coming soonntydogdetective Hopefully there will be a whole series of Monty books. I really enjoyed it.

    17. A great read for dog lovers and those who enjoy cozy mysteries. Better written and more interesting than the usual “dog mystery” with some great action sequences where I couldn’t stop reading. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    18. Enjoyable read. Enjoyed Monty and his friends helping to solve the case. It is always interesting to see the story from the animals point of view.

    19. I loved this book so much because it made think of my dog snowball who died 3 years ago in a house fire . i was having sugary and he was straying at my sister in laws house and there was fire in her house. she was not at home when the fire stared and he died from smoke and just did not wake up from it . but there is more to tell about my baby boy snowball he loved people and little children but he had a deep bark and was big dog so people were scared of him till he calmed down enough to be able [...]

    20. Rose Sidebottom ist Detective Constable in Ausbildung, deren Nachname leider zu blöden Bemerkungen einlädt. Sie versucht nicht nur beruflich in die Fußstapfen ihrer verstorbenen Tante Kay zu treten, sondern sie wohnt auch in deren renovierungsbedürftigem Haus. Sie hat einen untrüglichen Sinn dafür, wenn man sie belügt, was ihr eine hohe Aufklärungsquote und einen schnellen Aufstieg beschert – und den Neid von so manchem Kollegen. Den Neidern kommt es nur Recht, dass sie der Drogenfahnd [...]

    21. This is a book for all animal lovers, especially dog lovers, to read. Monty’s master, Prof. Salt, is killed. Monty, his beloved and loyal dog, is adopted by the case’s detective trainee, Rose Sidebottom, and together they work to solve the mystery of who killed the professor.

With Monty being the only surviving witness to the murder, Rosie vows to protect and care for Monty.The longer Rosie owns Monty, the more she starts to believe that Monty can understand what she is saying and she truly believes that Monty wil [...]

    24. I love Monty!I picked this book up thinking it was a children's book but quickly learned that this a book for a more mature reader.This story is through the perspective of Monty, the lovable golden retriever who has vowed to solve the murder of his late master, Professor Salt. In the meantime, Monty has been adopted by Rose, a trainee constable who has been assigned to the case of Professor Salts murder.

    25. When Patrick Salt was murdered, his faithful companion, labrador Monty almost died trying to save his master. Seventeen stitches later Monty was recuperating after a time at the vets with Detective Rose Sidebottom. Rose was investigating Patrick’s death but she was fighting a losing battle against some particular men in her team. Monty was determined to help Rose find Patrick’s killer – after all he knew who he was by the smells which were attached to him…Monty loved his food – it was [...]

    26. I've got to say, I walked straight past this book in the store. I really think this purple monstrosity really gives you no clue as to the book inside, which is a cozy dog mystery told from the POV of Monty, a dog who has witnessed the murder of his master. This cover makes it look like a children's book, and from what I can see of other editions, that cover is better. It was kind of fun and different reading from Monty's perspective, espeically because he talks to other animals to get clues and [...]

    27. I really loved this murder mystery. It's a nice warming book that will keep you smiling through out. I was pretty surprised to find I couldn't put the book down! The characters are easy to relate to and I loved the use of switching between a human voice and an animal voice.I think I particularly liked this book because I could relate so much of what Monty said to my dog's actions Maybe she has untapped potential?! I brought Monty and Me on impluse and I'm so glad I did. Genuinely cannot wait for [...]

    28. Pleasant cosy murder mystery. Monty the retriever narrates selected chapters of this story, showing how he and his animal/insect friends help Detective Rose Sidebottom track down the murderer of Monty's master, Paddy. The concept is a light hearted one, and much of the plot and dialogue are pretty silly, but Monty is a charming ( and very perceptive) character and this is a fun read. There are even some genuinely touching scenes, such as Monty's time in the dog pound and his attendance at Paddy' [...]

    29. If you have a dog or have ever had one in your life, I would say you will enjoy this book. I've often wondered what goes on in a dogs life and this book goes a long way to explain this, well for one particular dog and his animal friends. Ok so it is only fiction, well to the best of our knowledge, but I look at my own dog now in a whole different light - especially out on walkies when she's apparently checking her weemails! Loved it and I can't wait for the next in this series!
