WHISKEY STRAIGHT UP, the second book in the Whiskey Mattimoe mystery series. . . .

Nearly drowning in an icy lake isn't Whiskey Mattimoe's favorite way to celebrate the season. Neither is finding the mayor dead at Magnet Springs' annual Winter Sports Jamboree. Then there's the problem of locating Chester, her precocious eight-year-old charge, who has run away. Or was he kidnapped? And so Whiskey, an eternally disheveled, thirty-something realtor, is drawn into another rollicking adventure with her purse-stealing Afghan hound. Eccentric characters abound in this Michigan resort town, including the police chief with a gift for upsetting the local magnetic fields and the adorable vet with an unfortunate speech impediment. Amid the uproar, Whiskey makes a surprising discovery: for the first time since her husband's death, she's ready to dip her toes into the whimsical waters of love.
