Yip/ Tuck by Sparkle Abbey
My Review 4 STARS
Pampered Pets Mystery #4)
The Pampered Pets Mystery are over the top fun with pet owners spoiling their animals. They also are about two cousins from Texas who now live in L.A. area. Melinda Langston owns a pet store with designer pet clothes while her cousin Carolina Lamont is a pet therapist. They are fighting over a pin that their grandma left her favorite granddaughter. Which of course they believe they both are. So they are always stealing it from each other.
Yip/Tuck is Melinda starting out with the pin, but not for long. It is also her turn to find a dead body and get in the way of homicide Detective Malone. The cousins keep finding dead bodies and seem to take turns every other book. They also want to find answers and clear their friends from being murder suspects.
The books are fun. They are a cozy mystery I would guess you could say. I have enjoyed reading them. I did guess where one part of the story was going to go before they discovered the secret. But I did not guess on who the murder was till close to the end.
Melinda owns Bow Wow Boutique and is hosting a designer show for pets after work for certain customers to come. She hears Tova fighting with her boyfriend Dr. Jack O'Doggle because he can't meet her at the store. He did buy her petKiki a present today over the phone for kiki to makeup for a fight they had.
The next morning Darby and Melinda were out walking their dogs and when they got to their businesses they see Dr. O'Doggle sitting on a bench in front of Bow Wow. When he doesn't answer them one of the dogs goes up to sniff and knocks him off the bench. He does not move or make a sound. Melinda thinks he is dead she bends over to check and can't find a pulse but does see a leash around his neck.
Melinda calls Detective Malone he is plugged into her cell.
He tells Melinda to stay out of his way. But she does not listen to well to him or her boyfriend. Melinda does find answers along the way.
Melinda also hired a new person to work a few hours a day. Betty is a hoot. Brings lots of laughs and fun with her.
If you like animals, funny stories and characters with their over the top personality and mystery these books would be right up your funny bone. They are also clean reads.
I look forward to the next Pampered Pets mystery.
I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when finished by Netgalley.
