The Little Town of Summerville: A Dog Named Chubby by R.T. Douglass is a cozy mystery. It’s the first book from the «A Jack Wellington Mystery» series.
It’s such a nice story. It’s a well-written book with very detailed descriptions that create magical scenes. The plot is very engaging which makes it easier to keep your attention.

It’s a wonderful book that I highly recommend you to read. I will rate it with 5 stars.
