Book ~ "Barking!" (2002) Liz Evans

From Amazon ~ Stuart Roberts is a mild-mannered, shy accountant suffering from nightmares in which he remembers committing a violent murder and he wants to know if they really happened. Grace doesn't want to take the case on the grounds that murders tend to mean there's someone who is prepared to kill around and she'd rather pass, thanks very much. However, these are killings with a difference—they took place nearly 30 years before Stuart was born. During his dreams, Stuart becomes "Joe," and has vivid recollections of life as a hop farmer's son, a world Stuart swears he knows absolutely nothing about. Despite her scepticism, Grace has never been able to resist the lure of an unlimited expense account, so she takes the job. And then discovers that her client isn't quite what he appears to be.

I've read five of Evans' books with Grace Smith as the heroine and really enjoyed them. They were mysteries that were funny.

I found this one not funny at all and rather boring. There is some genealogy in it since she is trying to track "Joe" that I found interesting but that was about it.

The reason why it all happened and thus the ending were silly and I wasn't buying them.

I'm glad I never read this book first because I wouldn't have read any of her others.
