Incognito by Adrienne Giordano is the sixth book in the Lucie Rizzo series. It can be read as a stand alone but is so much fun when you read it along with the series. Giordano treats us once again to an original mystery, a mob princess, wacky family, supportive but crazy friends, and a dog (of course), and a hot cop!

These books are so much fun. It’s hard to capture all of it in a review, but if you like cozy mysteries, give this one a read. You will fall in love with the series! Incognito kept me turning pages while laughing and having a grand old time with the characters. Giordano does such a spectacular job with the originality of her stories! I enjoy figuring out the mystery along with Lucie and the gang because it makes it much more of an adventure!

Along with the fun story and characters in Incognito, this is probably my favorite book with Tim and Lucie’s romance. Their flirting and quips with one another made me smile. They are such a fun couple and any detective that can put up with a mob boss daughter’s family is a keeper!

If you are looking for an entertaining read with crazy characters, an equally crazy adventure and love and family, give Incognito a read!

Review: DOG COLLAR CHAOS by Adrienne Giordano

I love a good Lucie Rizzo Mystery and Dog Collar Chaos by Adrienne Giordano is everything the series represents. From the wonderfully wacky yet loveable characters to a mystery that takes a lot of whit and hijinks to solve. It doesn’t hurt to have a protective mob boss father and a hot Irish detective to add to the entertainment. The result includes lots of laughs and heart warming fun.

Lucie always has the best of intentions but somehow she always ends up in an uncontrollable adventure where she meets the most interesting people. She ages her boyfriend cop daily but makes her Dad proud the way she fights for those she loves. They all love her just as much and would do anything for her. That’s what is so great about this series. I want Lucie to be my friend.

In Dog Collar Chaos, Lucie’s best friend Roseanne is arrested for the murder. One she did not commit, of course. Since the formal investigation is moving too slow, Lucie takes things into her own hands. Oh boy. Strap on your seat belt because things move quickly and Lucie won’t rest until Ro is out of jail.

I was ecstatic with how much Lucile’s Dad is in this book. He is such a protector and it’s great fun with him in each of his scenes. I absolutely adore hunky detective Tim O’Brien. He is absolutely perfect for Lucie. Bails her out when she needs it. Lets her do her thing when he knows she needs to make a stand or a point about something. His point of view was great in Dog Collar Chaos. I never got enough of him in past books (so he better come out on top if there is a love triangle going on in future books, Ms. Giordano!).

I don’t want to give away too much because these books are pure entertainment from beginning to end. I literally laughed out loud several times during Dog Collar Chaos. Giordano’s writing is pure gold which is evident in this book and why she will always be an auto-read for me. If you like humor, mystery, and a little romance, give Dog Collar Chaos a read.

Review: THE MUTT AND THE MATCHMAKER by JB Lynn

The Mutt and the Matchmaker by JB Lynn is a must read for any of her Confessions of a Neurotic Hitwoman fans. The awesome Armani from the Hitwoman series is the Matchmaker in this series and as you can imagine, comes with a lot of humor. If you have not read the Hitwoman series, no worries, as it is not required to read The Mutt and the Matchmaker.

In The Mutt and the Matchmaker, we meet  Tom and Jane, the first couple that Armani sets up. When I started reading, I thought it was too nice of  story and the mystery was easily solved. However, I love JB’s books, so I kept reading. I was glad I did because things did turn out the way I thought. JB takes us on quite a little mystery!
