Whiskey and Tonic: A Whiskey Mattimoe Mystery by Nina Wright.

$13.95 paper (328p) ISBN 978-0-7387-1055-6

A tiara-stealing dog and a long line of cursed Miss Blossom beauty queens enliven Wright's whimsical third whodunit to feature Whiskey Mattimoe, realtor and sometime sleuth (after 2006's Whiskey Straight Up). Whiskey, a 34-year-old widow, is still adjusting to life in Magnet Springs, Mich., where her greatest challenge after selling houses is controlling her beloved late husband's pet afghan hound, Abra, who has a "penchant for stealing purses and other forbidden treats." When Abra absconds with the Miss Blossom tiara (not once, but twice!) after a well-liked intern from Whiskey's real estate firm wins the title, things really get crazy. It's a risky prize that has often brought death for past winners, including the previous year's queen. Wright's playful narrative touch and snapshot of smalltown life lightens the "curse" theme in this fizzy cozy, but the mischievous Abra really steals the show. (June)

    My copy of WHISKEY & TONIC arrived Saturday. I finished it--laughing!--last night. It's a hoot. Your best book yet, no question.

    these books are a laugh riot- are there anymore coming out soon?

    Thanks, Connie! I'm so glad that Whiskey, Abra, and crew are making you laugh. After Number 5, *Whiskey with a Twist*, I took a hiatus from the series to focus on other writing projects, but I may be back with more Whiskey. Cheers!
