Pirate Tales is a fun and exciting read. I was quickly caught up in the lives of Stormy, Salty, Monica, Cuervo and the other human and animal characters who populate the story. The characters live in the coastal area of Marina Del Rey, California. They are easy going, living an idyllic houseboat existence, and through their conversations and interactions I grew to like them more and more as the story progresses. They are the type of people that I would like to hang out with. With healthy doses of good natured humor, much of it supplied by the self-absorbed pets, Salty (the cat) and Cuervo (the dog), the relative calm of their lives is broken up by stolen boats and a mysterious death. Mix in a little romance, and you have a scrumptious reading experience. I can just imagine that Jimmy Buffett would enjoy reading this book while laying in a hammock on the beach in Margaritaville.
Salty, Cuervo, Monica and Salty Caught my heart right out of the gate
From the first word I knew I was in love with this book. Salty and the gang were so touching and so real. The Sailboat rides made you fell like you were on the water witn them. The murder was the best because i love a good mystery.Richard your style of writing is wonderful. Keep them coming.Salty made me wish that he was my friend. His friendship with Cuervo was so sweet. Just like a cat and dog. Their capers together were great. Somehow like teenagers.
Vanished Tales ~ An Intriguing Mystery and a Safe Haven Love Story
It’s a murder mystery set in a California marina with a love story on a par with Safe Haven, but with added commentary from Salty Tales, a cat. You can almost see the sails and smell the breeze as the plot twists and turns. His first teenage love becomes his fiancée, but disappears right after the engagement. Nineteen years later, he discovers she has returned, but only after her body is found floating in the marina. In his search for answers, he finds new love and family, and uncovers the dark truth behind her death. A great upbeat read for the beach, around the pool, or anytime you need a break. I did find the cat a little annoying, but then that’s a cat for you. FJ Harmon, Author
Obsession tales - awesome
Each book gets better and I love the settings and all the characters but salty is and always will be my favorite one. I got the book in the mail and immediately sat down and read the whole book then called my best friend Nancy and gave it to her the next day and she could not put the book down either. Good Job Well Done!!!! Look forward to the next one.
I was not disappointed!!
I couldn't wait to get my book in the mail, and I was not disappointed!!! The characters are like old friends that I need to know what happens next in their lives. From the two legged to the four legged i love them all. I enjoyed every page. From the introduction to the last page, I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next one. And my favorite is Salty 💜. His witty point of view makes me bust out laughing frequently. Absolutely well worth the read, along with the first two.
Always like pirate tale from a cats view
This was very entertaining - lots of humor between war between cat and dog viewpoints. people as well as animal characters very developed and I wanted to not only see how the story played out but found myself rooting for some of the characters. It had an unexpected twist to the romance part. not everything kissy- kissy happy ending romance novel.
Everything in this book is entertaining
To start off with I have never read a book like this one before where even the copyright page is entertaining, and yes, I do recommend reading it! The book is very well written and I love how it is mostly told from the point of view of the cat, Salty Tails. The dogs in the book, Cuervo, a Yellow Lab, and Sandy, a Jack Russell Terrier, also get to tell parts of the story. I particularly liked how even though Salty Tails hates dogs and thinks they are dumb, the author doesn't make the dogs sound dumb when telling their stories from their viewpoints.
