My Review

5 stars

This is a great book with different adventures that Max and Luther find themselves in. Max is a puggle (half Beagle, half Pug) and Luther is an Olde English Bulldog. Follow them as they eat mud, play on the beach, and talk about a dog in a diaper. Max and Luther seem to be able to get themselves into a bit of trouble. Thankfully their humans, Kari and Carey are there to rescue them.

Mixed into the stories are little trivia facts about dogs and Max and Luther’s favorite lists. This book is also filled with beautiful illustrations. I loved the ending and how Kari and Carey meet. This is a great books for young readers. I loved all of the adventures and the facts added in.

As an animal lover I recommend you get this book for you beginning readers. It will help them start reading and they will love both Max and Luther.

To purchase True Tales II from the Dog Park, or for more information make sure to check out Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Kari Sherman’s website.

I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Sometimes life, as well as death, is about second chances. Luckless Telly Martin doesn’t have a clue. An awful gambler trying to scrape by as a professional poker player, he becomes the protégé of world famous poker champion Clutch Henderson. The only catch…Clutch is a ghost. Telly and Clutch must navigate the seedy gambling underbelly of Las Vegas learning to trust each other in order to win the elusive International Series of Poker, repair their shattered personal relationships and find redemption in this life and the hereafter.



“Cash proves to be highly capable of juxtaposing the absurd and the mundane, creating a thoroughly enjoyable ghost story along the lines of The Canterville Ghost (1891) and Topper (1926)…Bet on this funny, well-written tale of second chances.” – Kirkus Review

My Review

5 stars

Clutch Henderson made it to the finals of the International Series of Poker. Unfortunately his heart couldn’t take the loss and he dies. A year later enters Telly Martin. Telly wants to win the top poker player, the problem is he is NOT a world class player, he isn’t even a basically good player. One night while lamenting his lot in life, Clutch hears his prayers and decides to help him. But this is not going to be easy for Telly when his girlfriend wants him to stop playing. And Clutch, will helping Telly win be just like winning himself? What about life outside of poker?

This is a great story. You feel just like you are in the middle of the poker tournaments. There are a collection of odd people that have their own place in this world. Clutch is driven to win the world tournament but would he be open to experiencing more to life. And Telly might not make it through the tournament when everything else doesn’t seem to be on the same path. But the banter between the two will keep you laughing.

This is another great story from Michael Phillip Case. Although the theme of the story is poker, if that is nothing that will interest you don’t fear, you will still like this book. Once you read one of Michael Phillip Cash’s books you will be hook and want more.
