  • This yarn is the second in the Wes Darling series. Wes is a former PI who lives on a boat and gets involved with messes and damsels in distress. In this tale, he heads to Alabama to reconnect with family and has varied adventures in boats and the swampy world of the Gulf Coast. The writing is clear. The action never stops and I am ready for the next book in this series whenever it gets published. Top notch book. It entertains


  • Good bookYou people should just read this book yourselves and write your own review on this novel yourself and I really enjoyed reading this book very much so. Shelley MA


  • I thoroughly enjoyed this sequel to Key Lime Blues. Wes is again in trouble and getting beaten up repeatedly. He's also got the ladies after him too. I like reading about his experiences taking his boat to different locales. The author is great about describing the areas so that you feel like you can almost see them. Wes also meets plenty of colorful characters while he is in Mobile. There is only a mention of the phobic psychic Elvis but I look forward to reading more about him in future books. [...]


  • I'm a little ambivalent about this book. I'm hovering between saying I liked it and that it was just okay. I won't give it 2 stars because it wasn't totally rife with errors (there were only a few) and it also didn't anger me the way some books do when the writer falls too short. But there just wasn't a lot of meat to the story. Wes Darling, the protagonist, is an ex-PI, so I expected him to use some of those skills to actually investigate the theft of his grandfather's ill-gotten WWII booty, or [...]


  • Very good!Wes Darling manages to find himself plenty of trouble doing investigations and getting beat up reminiscent of Sam Spade. Very good reading, suspenseful and mysterious.


  • Suspense set on the water and family secrets explored by an excellent writer with a sure hand on the tiller Because I'm familiar with Mike Jastrzebski's writing and his blog WriteOnTheWater, I downloaded Dog River Blues--the new Wes Darling Mystery--fully expecting a nonstop adventure. I also looked forward to the general backdrop of sailing off the Florida--or, in this case, Alabama--coast and an engaging hero and his live-aboard, Rough Draft. What I didn't expect, though, was the beauty of the [...]


  • Started this within an hour of finishing the first book in the series, and finished it the same day. I was disappointed that Wes Darling left Key West and the story has a few flaws. Too much happens to him too fast upon arriving in Mobile, and for a PI he's too free with too much information which is what gets him in trouble but which none of the other affected characters call him out on. But it's a fun, easy read which is exactly what I wanted on the last day of my coastal vacation. And I can't [...]


  • The plot was so incredibly weak that I couldn't continue. The author has the main character, a thirty something PI who's apparently no longer working for his family's detective agency, sailing to Mobile to find his father's family. All his mother, also a PI, will finally tell him is that he was a Vietnam vet she had a wild weekend with in Mexico. No name, etc. She finally admits he was from Mobile. Wes is in Mobile "asking about his family" according to the storyline. Really? All he knows he was [...]


  • I've been anxiously awaiting the second book in the Wes Darling series and it was worth the wait. While I was initially saddened to see Wes point his sailboat away from Key West the setting on the Dog River in Mobile was refreshingly new to me and I enjoyed learning about it. Of course any mystery novel is enhanced by a good story and interesting characters and this book has both, in addition to a number of different tidbits about the live aboard boating life which is so captivating to those of [...]


  • Perhaps this really deserves 3 stars, but it wasn't really a mystery as I had expected, so I was disappointed. This is much more of a thriller-suspense book, as the villains are identified about a third of the way into the book. It did have some good twists, but the basic premise seemed a bit flawed. (view spoiler)[This former P.I. doesn't care that his newly-discovered cousin lies to him from the very beginning, makes no attempt to discover why it would be so terrible to let the police handle t [...]


  • Sorry, but just trite reading to me. Read Jaztrzebski's other two books, too. First one (Key Lime Blues) was pretty good; second one, not quite so good, then this one, a real disappointment. Kind of formula written. Hope MJ takes more time with his next book so that it's at least par with his first book. Couldn't wait to finish so I could write a legitimate review, pick up a better written book and spend my time being able to concentrate on what I was reading. Two stars only because it was ok. C [...]


  • This is the first story I've read featuring Wes darling. He's a great character- very likable and believable -and I had no trouble jumping right into this story. He's a nice guy who tries to do the right thing and finds himself getting beat up quite often. Actually reminds me a little of Jim Rockford from the old "Rockford Files" tv show;-) I will be reading more of this fun series by Mike Jastrzebski. I received a free copy of this book for review. I will happily pay full price for the rest of [...]


  • I was almost finished with Dog River Blues before I realized there had been a previous book. In other words, this can be read as a stand-alone novel without affecting the enjoyment (although I will be seeking out the first book). Wes Darling serves as a reluctant detective to help his newly-found family. The plot is fairly simple, but moves well. I enjoyed the setting and the "locals" who added humor. Mike Jastrzebski has a very readable writing style. I hope he has more adventures in mind for W [...]


  • If you like your PI a bit clueless, this is your guy. Not to worry--he fortunately never comes up against anyone very clever. It was difficult to care much about his romantic involvement with either woman, or about the quest. The thief and his henchman were dumb as bricks. Darling spends a lot of time feeling tired and "blue." Small wonder; I felt the same. A book like this is frustrating because the author is obviously talented. There's simply nothing to really sink your teeth into, nothing to [...]


  • This was a pretty quick read and overall was pretty interesting. The storyline was decent. Wes Darling tries to find out about his family history and helps his newly discovered family with a problem. The characters were fun and interesting. The only thing that kept it from getting a higher rating from me was the ending was choppy. At first I thought the ending was too brief and it would never be "resolved". Then I felt like it dragged out and would never end. It finally did wrap up and I could l [...]


  • EX Private Detective who never knew his father sails his boat to Mobile bay find out about his father and his family. He is approached by a young girl claiming to be a cousin who talks him into helping her find an old book that was stolen from her family. A couple of not so bright protagonists, more family members appear and our PI somehow muddles through despite getting banged around quite a bit.


  • Received the book for free through First Reads - YAY!This was enjoyable. I would recommend it as an easy read when you don't want anything too deep. I would read something else by this author. This book just seemed to tie up too easily and some situations seemed contrary to others, regarding the plot. The writing style was good.


  • Attention holderWow ! Like the first Wes Darling book, this one grabbed my attention and never let go ! Just love these colorful characters. Again once I started reading, I couldn't stop until it was finished. Waiting for number three in the series. Always wanted to sail, more inclined to do it after reading this book. Really like this non-PI adventures.


  • Nice easy read. A little strange at times, like, what's up with the kissing cousin thing, but I enjoyed the book.Nothing complex or deep about this book, great for when you want a light book. Worth reading.


  • It's like reading a Travis McGee book only Wes Darling has a sailboat instead of a houseboat. This time Darling is in Mobile, AL meeting family he never knew he had until a week ago. And this family wants a certain book back.


  • Fun readI enjoyed the plot line. But for someone who gets beat up so much you would think he would look over his shoulder, or in front of him, more. And too many narrow escapes. But it's a fun story.


  • This book moved along at a good pace without dull passages. My problem is that the lead character seemed to do things somewhat beyond belief thus ruining some of the believability of the book. This caused the 3 star rating rather than a higher one.


  • ,Another enjoyable Wes Darling storylike key lime blues, the storyline was simple but entertaining. the characters were likable.except for the bad guys. it had sex, intrigue, and expected twist. if you liked the first took of the series you will like this one.


  • You know how private detectives always seem to be super sleuths and strong and invincible?? Well, this sleuth is anything butd yet, he is reigning champ! Great story with lots of "oh no" moments. Good read!


  • Accidentally lost my page partway in and didn't care enough to spend time or energy finding it to continue. Too much stupidity, like sharing detailed information with someone he just met and knows nothing about.


  • Strange book. I thought it sounded interesting and finished it just to know the ending. Not very believable and very negative stereotypes.





  • Second in the Wes Darling series; this is a decent mystery. Family relationships set in Mobile Alabama. The characters and plot are entertaining.
