Title: Fixed: A Gin and Tonic Mystery by L.A. Kornetsky
Published October 8, 2013; Gallery Books
The dogs were gossiping. The grey tabby paused, halfway down the fire escape, and surveyed the sidewalk below her. It was late afternoon, the sun cool and fading, dappling the pavement with shadows. The humans she could see from her vantage point were walking faster than they did in the evening, heading somewhere important. And the two dogs out in front of the Busy Place, one a shaggy black mutt of dubious Labrador ancestry, the other a fawn-coated shar-pei, were paw-to-paw, sprawled next to the bike rack, which tended to hold more leashes than bikes.Page 56:
...when her gaze went from Ginny to Tonica and then down to the dog standing alertly between them, her poise slipped a little. "Oh. Hi. She's beautiful." The tone of the girl's voice went from welcoming to slightly accusatory in those short sentences.Publisher description:
"In this second Gin & Tonic mystery, the stakes are raised when someone connected to missing funds Ginny Mallard and Teddy Tonica are investigating is found dead. When someone from the local animal shelter approaches her about finding grant funds that have gone missing, Ginny Mallard convinces her bartender friend Teddy Tonica to help her investigate once again. They soon discover that something is disturbing the animals at the shelter at night...and then a dead body shows up. With the help of Ginny’s Shar-Pei puppy and Tonica’s tabby cat, this unconventional crime-solving team has to figure out what’s going on before the shelter—and more people—lose everything."
