This week, the drinks keep flowing, the dogs barking, and the bodies dropping in Diana Orgain's 2nd Roundup Crew mystery, Trigger Yappy! Take a visual tour with GIFnotes!
Athough still not quite a dog lover, Maggie Patterson meets with her new group dog-loving friends for “Yappy Hour” every Friday night in the sleepy seaside town of Pacific Cove, California.
Both she and her sister, Rachel, have put the murderous past summer behind them, with Rachel even securing a headline feature for the “Wine & Bark” column in the famous Doggie Day magazine.
But when her sister comes down with a case of salmonella poisoning, Maggie is left to run the business in her absence.
Even worse, Maggie overhears an argument between her friend Yolanda and Bonnie, who runs the Chic Chickie shop.
Then poor Bonnie turns up dead.
With evidence piling up against Yolanda, the Roundup Crew is desperate to find the real killer and convince Maggie to investigate.
With the help of charming Officer Brad Brooks, Maggie finds that everyone has a motive, even some of her beloved Roundup Crew friends.
Maggie must put her new job as a purser on hold while she tracks down a murderer.
Will Maggie’s investigation kill her budding romance with Officer Brooks?
Sometimes getting to the truth is not for the faint of bark… er…heart.
Between running the bar, managing her love life, and solving a murder in time for the editorial spread, things are about to get a little hairy for Maggie in this laugh-out-loud cozy mystery.
