Review of Beauty And The Wiener



Addison Turner has scripted a perfect future for herself, complete with a fairytale ending. She will become the name in doggie fashion design and live happily ever after with the husband of her dreams—and her dachshund, Princess, by her side. Just when her plan is on track and she’s gaining recognition at the local dog show, Addison is hit with some Oscar-worthy drama. A group of prize-winning show dogs are stolen from under her nose, and she’s stuck asking for help from Felix Vaughn, an infuriatingly hot bartender who is the exact opposite of Prince Charming.

When more dogs go missing—and Felix becomes a suspect—the two team up to clear their names. Although Felix and Addison fight like cats and dogs, there’s an undeniable spark between them. And as the trail to the missing dogs heats up, so does their red-hot chemistry. Can Addison be persuaded to throw away her script to find an ending that just might be better than she ever expected?  (Goodreads)


The characters are well rounded and well developed.  I liked Addison but I felt like she really was not realistic in her pursuit of Mr. Right.  I felt like she had some unrealistic goals that she was determined to reach.  I liked Felix more than Addison.  He seemed down to earth and a normal person.  I really liked the bickering and banter between Felix and Addison.  It made for some very humorous reading.  Of course all of the animals added a lot to the story and was my favorite part of the book.

The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick easy read.  I thought that the mystery was carried on well throughout the book and with so many suspects to consider, it was not easy to solve.  I did like that the mystery revolved around the dog shows, I thought this was a unique perspective.  There was enough suspense to keep my turning the pages well into the night.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well written suspenseful romantic comedy.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.  I would like to thank NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for the opportunity to read and review this book.
