Bone to Pick (2017) TA Moore

I don’t know what I wanna read. I think a mystery. How about re-reading this one where I loved the dog?

Cloister Witte is ex-military and currently a sheriff K9 deputy. Cloister lives for Bon, his dog.

“I buy you shit, Bon,” he told her. “Good shit, but you’d rather run around with some thrift-store reject ball? People talk.”

She grinned at him, her tongue hanging out behind the ball until he laughed.

Clositer I adore.

Javi?

Less so.

Sometimes Javi was such a prick it was hard to share his head with himself.

The only positive is at least he knows he’s a jackass.

He didn’t have the personality to get away with not being pretty.

I paid a bit more attention this time, to see if I could catch the mystery a little better second time around–some of it yes, some of it no. What was clear was the amount of damage parents can do to their children, wittingly or not.

“Cloister.”

“Really?” Javi asked. “I thought that was a nickname because you were religious. I didn’t know your mother hated you.”

Cloister did a rolling stop at the exit. There weren’t enough people on the road to merit a full stop. Sometimes being a cop made you worryingly blasé about traffic laws.

“It was her maiden name,” he said. “She didn’t hate me till later.”

It allows Witte to offset the fact that although he looks like a dumb brute, he has a good idea what is going on inside the heads of the kids they have to deal with.

What I have a hard time understanding is why Witte as anything to do with Javi (besides his looks). I suppose it’s his belief that he isn’t deserving, but that makes it really difficult to read.
