When readers list their favorite characters from the Undercover Dish mysteries, they tend to put Mick at the top of the list. Mick, of course, is an adorable Chocolate Labrador and devoted companion of Lilah Drake. His special talent for nodding at people who talk to him has endeared him to many people, including me. In fact, I fell so deeply in love with Mick after creating him that I adopted a Labrador. His name is Digby; he is a black Lab rather than a chocolate, and he cannot nod, but he has most of the Lab traits that people love: loyalty, mellowness, playfulness.
Mick's adventures continue in Pudding Up With Murder, in which he befriends some children.
