Private Detective Mike Diamond is the low man on the totem pole. More often than not he finds himself investigating insurance fraud or cheating spouses. When he's assigned a dog-napping case, he is on the brink of refusing until he meets the client. One look at her changes everything.

When the police refuse to investigate her case, Cassidy Werner turns to Diamond and Diamond Private Investigators. Despite the bad first impression he's given her, Cassidy still hires Mike to help her find her prize Tibetan Mastiff. As she gets to know him, she realizes that he's not only dedicated to getting Roddy back for her, but also a pretty great guy.

Right after she receives a ransom demand, things begin to heat up between them. Will Mike be able to crack the case and save her dog? And if he can, does that mean that he gets the girl too?


This story was a very cute read. I love just about any book that has animals in it and this one put a smile on my face. The characters are so likable even though I wish a little more about the dog was mentioned but otherwise it was good.
Cassidy Werner’s prized pooch Sir Roderick Von Liechtenstein, otherwise known as Roddy. Roddy is a Tibetan Mastiff and a great showdog worth plenty of money. Cassidy hires a private detective to find her beloved dog. Mike Diamond is that PI and I could feel the chemistry coming off the pages between Cassidy and Mike. HOT!
The story flowed smoothly and never a dull moment in the whole story. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to see what would happen. Can’t wait to read more from this author.
