Dog Collar Knockoff

Title:                            Dog Collar Knockoff
Series:                         Lucie Rizzo Mysteries
Authors:                      Adrienne Giordano
Release Date:             February 9, 2016
Publisher:                   SilverHart Publishing
Genre:                         Mystery


Catering to the pampered paws set took Lucie Rizzo from unemployed to entrepreneur. With her dog walking/chic pet accessory business on the verge of success, Lucie’s ready to make a name for herself. One not tarnished by her dad’s mobster rep.

When an art deal she brokered between clients turns suspicious, it’s up to Lucie to sniff out the truth. She might not know the difference between Monet and Manet, but Rizzos are no strangers to jail time—and Lucie refuses to be someone’s prison bitch.

Unless that someone is a tall, blond and Irish cop. Detective Tim O’Brien certainly knows how to get Lucie hot under the rhinestone collar. And with her on-again-off-again relationship with Frankie Falcone currently off, O’Brien isn’t shy about making her feel wanted, mafia ties and all. Even joining her crack—or crackpot—team on the trail of two paintings with equally shady origins.

I enjoyed the first book in this series but I loved this one! I’m not sure why – maybe it is the interactions between Lucie & Tim (so funny!) or the humping actions of Oscar (the dog), or the talk about a painting called Position Seven which represented early European Erotic art…and of course the men in the book had to check it out on the website many times!

This book just made me laugh throughout and I like that the “case” to be solved isn’t a murder. I was shocked by how it ended (who was involved) but it was an interesting twist.

This is a great series and I can’t wait to see what happens next with Lucie, Tim, Frankie, Ro and Joey!  We give this book 5 paws up!
