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...
Review: ‘Fixed’ is the second book in the “Gin & Tonic” mystery series by L.A. Kornetsky. I have to say I liked ‘Fixed’ better than ‘Collared’ (the first book). Maybe it’s because the characters are already set up and we could get more into the mystery this time around. Georgie (Ginny’s shar-pei) and Penny (Tonica’s cat) are, again, integral characters and sometimes seem better at solving the mystery than their human counterparts. I do really enjoy the conversations between Georgie and Penny, as well as the light-hearted teasing between Ginny and Tonica. ‘Fixed’ is not gory or fraught with coarse language, which will appeal to many cozy mystery lovers.
