Groomed For Murder is the second book in the A Pet Boutique Mystery series.

Izzy and Rena are busily getting Trendy Tails decorated for a couple of weddings. Puppy nuptials are being planned for Pearl, a beagle, and Romeo, a greyhound. But first comes the wedding of Ingrid and Harvey. Ingrid is Izzy's mentor and landlady, her and Harvey are snowbirds and have returned to Merryville to have their wedding with their friends. Just as Ingrid is about to say "I do", Daniel Colona comes falling down the back staircase. Colona, who had been renting the second floor apartment, is dead from a gun shot. Then Aunt Dolly appears at the top of stairs holding the gun that apparently killed Daniel.

Izzy knows that Aunt Dolly couldn't have shot Daniel, so with her friends and family she begins her own investigation so that Aunt Dolly's name can be cleared and the wedding can once again proceed.

Daniel Colona is a bit of mystery man. About all they know about him is that he is a writer and is there to quietly write. As Izzy begins to look into what he is writing about, she soon learns that he is an investigative reporter and seems to have an interest in the construction that is going on with Hal Olson's construction site.
Also there are a couple of people who claim to know nothing of Daniel, but still, have had contact with him. Izzy will have her hands getting to solving the murder and being able to tie it up with a nice bow.

All the main characters are back from the first book. Rena, ever ready to help he business partner, might have romance in the future. And Izzy is torn between trying to renew an old flame with Sean and Jack the policeman. Once again Richard Greene is going to attempt to get Trendy Tails shut down. But will the feminine wiles of Aunt Dolly be able to solve the store?

Another fun story about life in Merryville, MN. Recipe included.

Will be watching for book #3. ( )
