Publisher's Summary

A rollicking start to a charming new cozy series featuring a loveable heroine and a colorful band of dog lovers who gather regularly with their pets at their local watering hole.

With side-splitting humor, an irresistible cast of characters - both human and canine-and an intimate small-town setting, Yappy Hour is sure to delight fans of Rita Mae Brown and Diane Kelly.

Every Friday night in the idyllic seaside town of Pacific Cove, California, the Roundup Crew, a group of dog-loving friends, meets at a neighborhood wine bar for Yappy Hour. When Rachel, the owner, mysteriously leaves town and asks her sister, Maggie - who is neither pet friendly nor business savvy - to run the bar in her absence, things get complicated fast. Maggie arrives to open up and finds a body sprawled on the floor, and worse, an incriminating letter with Rachel's name on it nearby. On impulse, she hides the letter from the hunky detective, Officer Brad Brooks, who's dispatched to the scene.

When Rachel is declared the top suspect by the police, Maggie decides to investigate on her own. She reopens the bar and gets to know the members of the Roundup Crew, including chief organizer Yolanda, who never goes anywhere without her signature strappy stilettos or her Yorkie Beepo. Maggie juggles searching for clues, trying to locate Rachel, and serving up Doggie Daiquiris, Muttguaritas, and homemade Arf D'Oeuvres - until another body turns up. The Roundup Crew must step in and save the bar, and it seems the only way to do that will be to solve the mystery and turn Maggie into a dog-lover.

    "Excellent Start For A New Cozy Mystery"

    This is one of the most entertaining books I have read in a while. The characters were all likable and well developed. The mystery was very entertaining with lots of twists. I actually found myself laughing aloud at times. I hope there will be more books to come in this series.
