LOVE—UNLEASHED. . .
First in a wickedly funny new series brimming with mystery and romance!
Piper Summers works like a dog juggling three jobs to put herself through veterinary school—driving taxis, delivering pizzas, and singing telegrams. Thankfully, Piper has her devoted dachshund Colin to help her keep things in line. That is, until she gets fired...and someone throws her a bone that is too good to resist.
Aiden Caldwell is an Armani ad come to life—a billionaire CEO who’s just adopted a dachshund from the rescue center where Piper volunteers. He’s hot on Piper’s tail to be his personal dog walker...but he may be after more than a walker for his wiener. The gorgeous, spirited Piper is everything he’s ever wanted from a woman—and more. But can Piper ever love, and trust, a man who has never learned to open his heart—or has she bitten off more than she can chew?
Must Love Wieners is the first book in Casey Griffin's Rescue Dog Romance series!
3.5 Stars for Must Love Wieners
To be honest the title and the cover drew me to this book. As an owner of an adorable dachshund I had to see what this book was about it and it was a sweet surprise. Must Love Wieners is a cute romance with some crazy characters (human and four-legged).
Piper Summers is juggling three jobs to put herself through veterinary school. During a singing telegram job, she meets Aiden Caldwell, a handsome billionaire CEO who’s just adopted a dachshund from the rescue center where Piper volunteers. Piper has had a string of bad luck so when Aiden hires her to walk his dog it is a job she can’t refuse. It also doesn’t hurt that there is a strong attraction between them. Their romance gets complicated as unusual and dangerous events occur, leaving Piper questioning who she can trust. I enjoyed Must Love Wieners and I thought the plot was a nice mix of romance and mystery. The mystery was good with a lot of twists and a good cast of suspects. The romance between Piper and Aiden was slow burning and I thought this dragged the pace of the story. Some dull scenes with Piper and Aiden were saved by their adorable dachshunds Collin and Sophie. I loved how the author gave the dogs fun personalities and a voice, even though they don’t speak in the story.
Overall I enjoyed Must Love Wieners and I think this is a good start to the series. Pipers girlfriends are crazy and supportive. They also have adorable dogs so I can’t wait to read their upcoming stories. I recommend Must Love Wieners to fans of cozy mysteries mixed with romance and lovable pets.
Here is our baby Koko. I thought of her while reading this book.
