The characters are charming. Lacy and her family and close friends pull you in and you’ll want to become their new ‘bestie’. I was!

Lacy Marie Crocker has settled into a comfortable groove back home in New Orleans, and with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, she’s busier than ever running a thriving pet boutique, helping her mother organize the upcoming National Pet Pageant, and untangling her complicated love life. But when delivering a king-sized order of dreidel-shaped doggy biscuits for a Saint Berdoodle’s bark-mitzvah, Lacy stumbles into yet another murder scene—and the last person to see the victim alive was her own father.
It’s up to Lacy to clear her dad’s name from the suspect list before Detective Jack Oliver has to cage him for good. But just when she starts pawing at the truth, she receives a threatening letter from a mysterious blackmailer bent on silencing her with her own secrets. And Lacy’s not the only one with bones in her closet.

I just love this series so much. The author is so witty and makes me laugh  constantly with little cute sayings. The characters are a hoot and the town is a perfect setting for the story. . I swear someday I may get in my car and find Furry Godmothers. It has to be real with the vivid description the author provides. What a wonderland for pet owners who want to spoil their pets.

Lacy is just minding her own business when another body seems to land in her path. How  does a person get locked in a deep freezer and die? As luck would have it, the last person to be seen with the deceased is Lacey's dad. I love it when the police tell a suspect not to leave town. I think , now what if that person was really dangerous, do you think he would say, "Ok officer I won't go anywhere." He would be gone so fast you would see the dust as he dashed out of town. Ok I got on a rabbit trail, but I always find it funny when police tell suspects such a silly thing.

Lacy and her sidekick Scarlet are off to find out who the killer is before her father is arrested. The author is right about them being like Lucy and Ethel. They seem to get themselves  in some funny situations. It's a wonder they aren't in jail with their on the edge of committing crimes daily routine. I loved them both and they kept the story lively. Lacey's mother is a bit over the top for my liking. Who dresses in all black to deliver a casserole to the deceased widow? Yes I thought she was a big loony toons at times but it added a bit of quirkiness to her character.

The best scene in the entire story to me is when Lacy and Scarlet are snooping around and get caught. Oh my what a classic Lucy and Ethel move . I can't get enough of Lacy and Scarlet's shenanigans. I won't spoil it, but will saying coins rolling on the ground are involved. The author really does a great job of lining up suspects and I had a hard time figuring out who the culprit was. I loved that the story took a more serious tone as Lacy delved deeper into who the killer might be. There is a bit of a love triangle mixed in the story that really intrigued me. Overall I loved the story and found it be very well written. It's another hit for a very talented author.

I received a copy of this book from The Great Escape Virtual Book Tour. The review is my own opinion.
