When three women meet at a 'Kammani-Gula Dog Obedience' class, little do they know what they are walking into...
Abby has just arrived in Summerville, Ohio, with her placid Newfoundland, Bowser, and is soon brewing up trouble in the form of magical baked goods in her grandmother's coffee shop, while Daisy (with her hyperactive Jack Russell, Bailey) discovers the chaos within when she meets a mysterious dog trainer. Finally Shar, professor of ancient history at Summerville College, wakes up one morning to find her neurotic dachshund, Wolfie, snarling at an implacable god sitting at her kitchen table. What on earth is going on in this unearthly little town? It's up to Abby, Daisy and Shar to find out...
Don't be put off by the talking dogs; clever (human) dialogue and sassy heroines make this joint novel an amusing standout. After meeting at a local dog obedience-training session, coffeehouse owner Abby, Web writer Daisy and history professor Shar become fast friends. They also discover that the dog trainer is the Mesopotamian goddess Kammani, determined to rule the world like she did 4,000 years ago. Chosen as Kammani's priestesses, Abby, Daisy and Shar aren't quite ready to support the goddess's destructive goals, even when she grants them magical powers including the ability to understand their dogs. Established authors Crusie (Charlie All Night), Stuart (Fire and Ice) and Rich (Wish You Were Here) turn this quirky charmer into an enjoyable paranormal romp that's definitely not just for dog lovers.

Must love dogs ...
From the first page, the story unfolds like one of those impossible maps to re fold your dad kept in the glove box.
Filled with quite a few laughs, vivid scenery and of course the ever present canine companions.
After reading quite a few of Crusies' books, I was interested to read a collaboration of hers with other writers. I did enjoy "Dogs & Goddesses"' however prefer Crusies' solo novels.
Great reading for a lazy weekend.
