Kornetsky's Gin and Tonic series are the best of cozies. Fantastic characters who we've seen grow over the course of four books and plenty of mysteries to solve. I especially like the interplay between the four-footed characters Mistress Pennydrops and Georgie.

This book mostly takes place in Portland, where Ginny is meeting an out of town client. She's hoping this will help expander her burgeoning concierge business. Unfortunately, all she finds at the client meeting is a dead body. With Tonica back home in Seattle, it's more difficult to solve this case, but they still manage with perseverance and a Skype connection.

I thought this book started out a bit slow, probably because Ginny and Georgie were in Portland, and Tonica and Penny still in Seattle. As the book progresses, the book solidifies, leaving the reader satisfied. If you've enjoyed the first three books in the series, don't miss out on this one. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Even though she's unlicensed as an investigator, the infamously nosy Ginny Mallard and her cohort Teddy Tonica have begun to make a name for themselves in solving cases. But Ginny still has her day job as an event planner, and the promise of a lucrative job draws her to Portland, with her shar-pei puppy, Georgie, in tow. Much to her shock and horror, however, she's been led there under false pretenses--and discovers a body in the parlor of her client's house! Though the cops warn her to keep her nose out of it, Ginny just can't resist the itch to solve this case, and soon gets drawn into Portland's seedy underbelly of identity theft, forgery, and of course, murder...with Teddy and his cat Penny's devoted sleuthing helping her at every turn.… (more)
