Overview

A rollicking start to a new cozy series from USA Today bestselling author Diana Orgain, 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, Diana Orgain's 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, CA, the Roundup Crew, a group of dog-loving friends, meet 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 even 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 in this charming, light-hearted cozy.

Maggie Patterson, the narrator of this charming series debut from Orgain (Nursing a Grudge), has relocated from New York to picturesque Pacific Cove, Calif., in part to seek a new career, and in part to be closer to her sister, Rachel, the owner of the Wine and Bark, a bar that caters to dog lovers and their pets. When Rachel suddenly leaves town, its up to Maggie to host the bars Yappy Hour. Things dont go as planned as Maggie finds a body in the bar that turns out to belong to Dan Walker, a partner in the restaurant next door. Whats worse, there may have been bad blood between Rachel and Dan, caused by the bars open door policy for dogs. Officer Brad Brooks doesnt want her snooping, but Maggie sets out to clear Rachel anyway with help from Yolanda, a loyal Yappy Hour customer, and Gus DelVecchio, the bars chef. Multiple suspects, a little romance, and a good dose of humor make this cozy a winner. Agent: Jill Marsal, Marsal Lyon Agency. (Nov.)
