Groomed For Murder

A Pet Boutique Mystery, #2

In the second offering in Annie Knox’s Pet Boutique Mystery series, Izzy McHale’s Trendy Tails Pet Boutique is getting into the pet wedding business. Izzy is getting ready to host a set of “pupptials” but first she has another wedding to prepare for – her former landlord’s, Ingrid Whitfield and her high school sweetheart are getting married at Trendy Tails the next day; however, the wedding is interrupted when Izzy’s tenant, a mysterious writer named Daniel Colona, ends up murdered before the bride and groom can say “I do”. And since Izzy’s Aunt Dolly was found standing at the top of the stairs holding a gun over the murdered man, she’s the logical suspect – meaning Izzy and her friends had better get busy if they are going to clear Dolly’s name.

Knox has a wonderful writing style and a flair for plotting mysteries. Groomed for Murder is an excellent follow up to number one, Paws for Murder. This is definitely a cozy mystery for amateur sleuths and animal lovers alike! Four paws – Rocco LoTempio.

Izzy McHale wants her new Trendy Tails Pet Boutique in Merryville, Minnesota, to be the height of canine couture and feline fashions. But in a week of wedding bells, someone is about to hold their peace? forever. Love is in the air, and Izzy is hard at work coordinating two special weddings at Trendy Tails. First, Izzy’s friend and mentor, Ingrid, will be tying the knot with her old flame. And a week later, Izzy will host ?pupptials” for two lovable dogs.

But even with the hullabaloo, the Trendy Tails crew is intrigued by Daniel, an enigmatic writer boarding above the shop who’s caught the attention of Izzy’s zany aunt Dolly, who gossips like most people breathe.

Unfortunately, it’s Daniel who stops breathing when he drops dead at the altar on Ingrid’s wedding day. Then Dolly is found at the scene with the murder weapon, and it’s up to Izzy, her Trendy Tails pals, and her scrappy pets, Packer and Jinx, to find a killer before the two affianced doggies bark down the aisle?.
