    Not my favorite in this series

    I felt the latest installment of the Adrienne Giordano Dog Collar series was not as entertaining as her previous ones. This one, Dog Collar Cuisine, finds Lucie Rizzo embroiled in a heist involving a client of hers who happens to be a world-famous chef in possession of a top secret recipes…think the recipe for KFC original recipe chicken, or maybe the original formula for Coca-Cola. When the recipe disappears from the chef’s restaurant office, Lucie falls under suspicion as the thief. An outraged Lucie goes on the offensive to discover the identity of the real thief, bringing her brother Joey and her BFF Ro along for the ride. I really liked the plot idea – we all know of the lengths some people will go through to protect certain intellectual secrets, but I felt the situations Lucie and Ro find themselves in really stretched the imagination. It made me think of old I Love Lucy episodes where Lucy and Ethel get themselves into the most ridiculous situations imaginable. I can’t understand why they would continue to get themselves into situations they knew would create problems with Lucie’s boyfriend, Tim, the sexy Irish detective. Time and again Tim tries to save them from themselves but to no avail. It also seemed the romance between Tim and Lucie stalled a bit on this book. Even when they tried to get together romantically, Lucie’s exploits were enough to derail any plans the two could make. Overall, the book was ok – not my favorite in this series because I felt the situations were contrived and the humor forced, like slapstick humor instead of the more clever things we’ve seen in other books. Still, I am looking forward to the next in the series to see what mischief Lucie can get into next.

    Lucie Rizzo and friends crack me up!

    If you like light mystery, a sprinkling of romance and lots of laughs, you’ll love the Lucie Rizzo series. Lucie is a great character and, with her wacky family and friends, tries to rise above her father’s mob dealings. This was another fun mystery with a secret recipe stolen from a famous chef and Lucie being accused of the theft. Of course, Lucie is driven to clear her name and her investigation of the crime takes some unusual turns and her cop boyfriend finds himself in the middle once again.

    The Rizzo Team is at it again. Love this series

    This series just gets funnier and wackier with each new story (but whacky in a good way). Once again our crazy cast of characters is out to solve another mystery and of course it’s lined with all kinds of loony and not quite legal investigations. In this installment of Dog Collar adventures, Lucie is accused of stealing a world famous secret recipe. Of course we all know she didn’t do it but Boy oh Boy the evidence sure all points to her. So who stole it and why? And why are they trying to pin it on Lucie? Ms. Giordano has written a hilarious storyline that will having you laughing at the gang's antics and their zany escapades. 2 Thumbs Up for a great addition to the series; one that this reader highly recommends 1-clicking. Your funny bone will be glad you did.

    Cozy Canine Murder Mystery

    Lucie finds herself unwittingly and unwillingly in trouble again. While helping out a customer she becomes the target of someone maliciously accusing her of thievery and she knows she is not guilty SO in Lucie’s inimitable style she starts sleuthing for the real thief. This leads her to questionable behavior – at least in her boyfriend’s mind. Why questionable? Well, because Detective Tim “O’Hottie” O’Brien is an upholder and not a breaker of the law and sometimes Lucie bends and even slips across that line he upholds in his job. There are escapades and situations and suspects and dogs and romance along with family and caring and romance and sharing. This is a great addition to the series with Tim and Lucie growing closer together as a couple while figuring out how to be just Tim and Lucie without the influence of his job and her familial ties impinging on their relationship. Thank you to the author for the ARC – this is my honest review.

    Great addition to the series!

    Adrienne Giordano continues to entertain with this series! Lucie Rizzo and her Chicago Police Detective boyfriend Tim,along with the rest of Lucie's wacko team of characters, are once again drawn into another of her "investigations". How can anything go wrong when your Dad is a mob boss on parole along with his own crew of characters, her newly Independent Mother, Joey her brother with anger management issues, and her BFF Ro whose "walking shoes" are just slightly lower stiletto heels? All trying to find out who is behind setting Lucie up as the thief of a multi-million dollar recipe of Chef Antoine Durand. Add the addition of the dogs Lucie's company, Coco Barknell, walks and nothing ever seems to go as planned with hilarious results! I like Lucie. She presents herself to the world as a strong woman. Inside, though, she has all the insecurity and flaws as any person. But her Dad taught her to fight for what is right even though their paths to those goals are definitely different. And Lucie takes her reputation very seriously! She has been trying to prove to the world that she is Not the Mob Princess she feels everyone sees. Being called a thief and then being sued will not be tolerated. Tim has learned that helping with a Lucie investigation is easier than being blindsided by them. Her determination is one of the things about her he loves best. The whole series is very entertaining and is best read in order for maximum understanding and enjoyment. The characters are well developed and continue to evolve as do real people. The "who done it" is well hidden until the end of each book. Some of Lucie and Tim's loving, also Ro and Joey's relationship antics would probable best be rated as PG-13.
