Great Book: Mr. Monk on the Road!

We love the Mr. Monk TV show, and the novels are just a great. I (Rob) have read most of the novels and have enjoyed every one of them. Most of them are written by Lee Goldberg who actually wrote many TV episodes. Mr. Monk on the Road was great.
  - Hysterical antics from OCD Detective Adrian Monk as he and his assistant Natalie take his brother on a tour of the western U.S. - The catch: his brother Ambrose is afraid of being outside and hadn't left his house in 30 years.  This is another Monk classic!!!

BOOK SUMMARY: Monk's out on the open highway--but crime is a hitchhiker that won't be ignored. 
   With his job secure and his wife's murder finally solved, Adrian Monk is feeling strangely...satisfied. He'd like his agoraphobic brother Ambrose to feel the same way, so Monk puts a secret ingredient in Ambrose's birthday cake: sleeping pills. When Ambrose wakes up, he's in a motor home on the open road with Monk determined to show him the outside world.
But Ambrose isn't the only one struggling to let go. As little crimes pop up along the highway, Monk can't resist getting involved. Now it's up to Monk to stop a murderer from turning their road trip into a highway to hell.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
