LET'S GET COZY! GROOMED FOR MURDER: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
GROOMED FOR MURDER
A Pet Boutique Mystery
BY ANNIE KNOX

ABOUT THE BOOK:
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….

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Pseudonym for Wendy Lyn Watson.

Annie Knox doesn’t commit—or solve—murders in her real life, but her passion for animals is 100% true. She’s also a devotee of 80s music, Asian horror films, and reality TV. While Annie is a native Buckeye and has called a half dozen states “home,” she and her husband now live in a crumbling historic house just a stone’s throw from the courthouse square in a north Texas town.

It's great that Annie has had both these two novels debut in the same year--way to get off the ground with a new series. I look forward to checking back and seeing if she adds her blog page.

A cozy tied to a pet boutique sounds great. Aunt Dolly sounds like an interesting character.

Sounds interesting. At least it wasn't the groom. I'd like to see how this gets solved. I've never been to a doggy wedding before.
