Beauty and the Wiener by Casey Griffin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A TAIL AS OLD AS TIME...
Addison Turner has scripted a perfect future for herself, complete with a fairytale ending. She will become the name in doggie fashion design and live happily ever after with the husband of her dreams--and her dachshund, Princess, by her side. Just when her plan is on track and she's gaining recognition at the local dog show, Addison is hit with some Oscar-worthy drama. A group of prize-winning show dogs are stolen from under her nose, and she's stuck asking for help from Felix Vaughn, an infuriatingly hot bartender who is the exact opposite of Prince Charming.
When more dogs go missing--and Felix becomes a suspect--the two team up to clear their names. Although Felix and Addison fight like cats and dogs, there's an undeniable spark between them. And as the trail to the missing dogs heats up, so does their red-hot chemistry. Can Addison be persuaded to throw away her script to find an ending that just might be better than she ever expected?
I thought this book was going to be like Beauty and the Beast and to a certain extent it is. I really like the mystery of it and the characters. The mystery is one of those that you know from the start who it is...well for me I did. It had some twists and turns and at no time did I think "I'm not finishing this!!" I wish I had read Must Love Wieners first but I didn't because I might have appreciated this more. This isn't a book that you sit down and can't finish in one day and feel just absolute bliss. It's one that you really read over several days and you might read a couple books in between. All in all, I thought the author did an awesome job keeping pace and keeping our attention. I'll definitely read the next one because while it wasn't a wild, sexy romance - not all the time do you need that and I'm not one who needs explicitness in my books. This is one I can recommend to my mom and not be embarrassed that it might have sex or cussing in it. Kudos Casey Griffin!!
