One of Laguna Beach’s best-known plastic surgeons may need a new leash on life. Unless he’s just taking a very long nap on the bench outside Melinda Langston’s Bow Wow Boutique…

Dr. O’Doggle continued to give us the silent treatment. Fluffy eyed him intently. I studied him too. Tova Randall wasn’t my BFF, to say the least, but I didn’t wish her boyfriend any bad luck.

My neighbor, Darby, relaxed her grip on Fluffy’s leash. The big Afghan lunged toward Dr. O and knocked him over. Tova’s handsome hunk rolled off the bench and dropped with a thud at our feet.

Darby gasped. My stomach knotted. “No, no, no.” I shook my head. “Not again.”

I knelt down and shook his shoulders. “Dr. O’Doggle?” I grabbed his suit lapels and yelled, “Jack?”

No response. No, “I’m fine.” No, “Stop yelling in my face.” No, “Get your hands off me.”

No, no, no.

I checked his throat for a pulse. Nothing. But he was still warm. My fingers brushed against something knotted around his throat, and I’m not talking about his tie. I pulled back his shirt for a better look. I sucked in a breath, my nose filled with a light female perfume I didn’t recognize. A thin dog leash was wound tightly around his neck. Identical to the kind I sold at the shop.

This was not an accident.

“Is he . . .?” Darby asked softly.

I looked up at her. “Dead. No more late night walks for him.”

Christmas is just 3 weeks away in this cozy mystery! It’s the perfect, fun companion to join you as you bake, drive, or simply relax this holiday season!

    This is the second book in this series that I have listened to and I enjoyed both books. Yes I know this is book four but I can safely say you don’t need to listen to them in the correct order to enjoy because the books seem to stand alone, so just sit back and enjoy. I like the characters and found them fun, especially the feisty Betty and hope she is going to be a recurring character. The mystery was good, I had worked out who the killer was despite there being a number of suspects but the story was interesting and funny enough that I listened to it all in one day.
    Melinda is surprised to find Dr O’Doggle sat outside Bow Wow Boutique but the surprising thing is he is dead wearing a dog collar sold in her shop. Melinda has no intention of getting involved, even if she did find the body, but when Tova a bitter enemy begs for help, she finds she can’t refuse her. Dr O’Doggle was the love of Tova’s life and she needs Melinda’s help getting a treasured photo back from his office, an office guarded by an office dragon. Melinda gets more than she bargains for when retrieving the photo, as she learns about the good doctors secret life.and for once it is not as simple as just having an affair. Melinda and best friend Darby find themselves entering the world of the drag Queens. As a unrecoonizable Tova becomes suspect number one Melinda can’t help but ask questions. Can the pair shine the spotlight on the real killer? Or is there another murder to come?
    I liked the narrator and found her easy, laid back voice easy to understand.
