Mafia princess turned canine couturier Lucie Rizzo knows dogs are woman’s best friend. Thanks to her fashion-forward four-legged clients, Lucie’s dog walking/designer pet accessory business is booming. And for once her love life isn’t far behind.

Lucie devotes her days to building the Coco Barknell brand, but her nights are all about roguishly sexy Tim O’Brien. At least they will be if she and Detective O’Hottie finally take their relationship to the next level. But bring an Irish cop home to her mobster father?  Fuggetaboutit.

Lucie’s knack for finding trouble lands her in the doghouse—and on the six o’clock news. Someone’s absconded with a million-dollar piece of cinematic costume history, with Lucie the only witness to the crime. Not to mention the prime suspect. To clear her name, she’ll need an assist from her entire wacky crew: friends, family…and future (hopefully) lover.

Lucie Rizzo is in a happy place, her dog walking business is doing so well that she has hired two more dog walkers and her designer dog accessory business is also doing well top all that off with a hunky new boyfriend and life is good. Until things go bad fast and all because she is in the wrong place at the right time. A robbery takes place in a building that Lucie is seen walking by on a security camera. Lucie of course is being looked at because of who her father is. She what if she just happens to have part of the item stolen in her possession, she found it. Now with her businesses at stake along with her reputation she has to start digging in to this crime to see if she can find the thieves before she loses all her clients. Thank goodness for her best friend Ro and her brother Joey. She is trying to leave her police detective boyfriend out of this one but it doesn't look like she is going to be able to get away with it. Thank goodness Tim loves her and doesn't care who her father is. This book is full of laughs, attitude, a little sex , twists, turns and a little romance. I loved it!

Lucie is the only witness to a robbery and she is also a suspect. Her boyfriend Detective Tim O'Brien is involved in helping Lucie as is Lucie's entire family. Her family and friends made me laugh so hard, and want to smack them. Tim is Introduced to Lucie's family, can I just say Mafia. You can see where this is going but Tim and the family handle it with class. I can't wait for the next book in this series. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. You must read this book!!!!

Dog Collar Couture is a fast pace, funny and suspenseful story that will leave you wanting more. Lucie has a knack of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, and this time she will need the assistance of everyone she trusts (yes, including her mob boss father) to clear her name and solve the mystery of a major heist that she was accused of being involved in all because of a feather she found while walking a client.

Dog Collar Couture Adrienne Giordano I received thisARC for an honest review. Poor Luce! She can't get break! She, an Italian mob daughter and hope to be girl friend of a HOT Chicago detective, has landed right in the middle of a theft again! Of course, because of her last name-Rizzo-she is considered guilty of being part of the crime. Her wacky best friend, Ro, and her wacky brother, Joey, get drawn into trying to solve it and prove Lucie is innocent. Mr. HOTTIE detective, Tim, can only shake his head and pray Luce stays safe. As the crime heats up will it mean the end of the hopeful relationship between Luce and Tim or will it continue to blossom and grow into a HEA? A wonderful read of humor, intrigue, unique characters, and romance. I highly recommend Dog Collar Couture and of course Dog Collar Crime and Dog Collar Knockoff.

I adore Lucie Rizzo and her shenanigans! This was another great book filled with her quirky life of business, family & love in the making. I hope this isn't the end, because I really want to see more of her enjoying life with Tim! In her normal way, Lucie stumbles across trouble while out walking one of her dog clients. She may have witnessed a theft of a million dollar piece of film history, but no one is accepting the little bit that she can tell them and is making her out to be the number one suspect! Her boyfriend Tim O'Brien, AKA Detective O'Hottie, has to walk a fine line of doing his job in investigating, and trying to keep Lucie out of trouble for simply being in the area. Bring her best friend Ro, her brother Joey and her newly paroled mob boss father into the mix to try to clear her name and you have a comedy of errors bound to happen!

This is such a fun series with great characters that make it so fabulous. I love the relationship between Lucie and TIm and that the author is really giving it time to grow and not rushing it. The story makes you smile and laugh. They are just such a fun group to hang out with and you won't regret reading any of the Lucie Rizzo stories. I received a copy in return for a honest review.

This was a very fun read with Lucie, Ro, and Joey are back trying to prove that Lucie was in the wrong place at the wrong time and not an accomplice in the theft of dress from the auction house. Tim Lucie new boyfriend who is a Detective is trying to help without compromising the case or lose his job. Lucie’s father who is out of prison puts her in a tight spot trying to stay away from him so they do not think she is in with the mob and getting their help which would make it look like she really did steal the dress. Lucie really wants the relationship with Tim to work but with him being a cop and she just can’t seem to stay out of trouble she just does not see that is this going to work. When she stops to chat with a women and the next thing she knows she is being accused of stealing a dress. Lucie doesn’t want to put Tim in a bad position it isn’t right to make him choose between her and his job. Now her friends and she are on the hunt to clear her name and keeping Tim from getting to involved as much as they can. Just wait until you get to the scene when Irish Detective Tim and Lucie’s father Joe the Italian mob boss meets for the first time. Joe is in shock that his daughter could be dating a police man. Tim doesn’t seem to have much trouble with whom or what her father is. This was a very funny time in the story. The author gives you a very funny read with wonderful characters on the hunt to solve the mystery of which what and why to get Lucie off the hook and bring the thefts to justice. This is one series that will have you laughing out loud at all the trouble these characters get into. She gives you just the right amount of romance with a wonderful mystery that unfolds into a very humors read. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

Lucie Rizzo has a serious problem. She's always in the wrong place at the wrong time. She's a magnet for trouble. Why else would she be outside Bendorf Auctions when the famous Maxmillian dress is stolen. Now Lucie is being hounded by the police and the press. How can she convince people that she can be trusted? I love Lucie, the Mob Princess. She's smart, funny and determined. Her romance with Detective O'Hottie had me sighing. What a pair. Their battle of wills is addictive. Who wouldn't want Tim O'Brien! He's such a charmer and her cares for Lucie. I read Dog Collar Couture in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. I love all the characters. Joey and Ro are fabulous together. They are such a passionate couple. I even have a soft spot for Joe Rizzo, mob boss. He's a softie where his family is concerned. Adrienne Giordano has written a wonderful series. This mystery is a great combination filled with romance and unexpected twists. I can't wait for the next book. I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

I enjoy this series so much! Lucie and her friends and family are hilarious. Again, Lucie unwittingly gets caught up in a murder. Helped by her friends and family, they endeavor to unravel the murder. Lucie’s father is featured more in this book, as is her brother Joey and her BFF Ro. Of course, some romance is also involved. I hope this series continues for a long time!

Lucie really wants her relationship with Tim to move on to the next level. But, how can that happen when she is such a trouble magnet? Lucie doesn't want to put Tim in a position to choose between being with her and his job, but she just can't keep trouble away from her and her family. She is out walking one of the dogs when she meets a woman. They chat for a few minutes and the next thing she knows, she is being accused of taking a very valuable dress from the place where she met the woman. Now Lucie and the gang has to find the dress to clear her name, keep her business from being affected by the accusation and keep Tim from being involved in their investigation as much as possible.

This is another great book in the Lucie Rizzo mystery series. Once again, Lucie finds herself in the middle of yet another mess and she is out to prove her innocence together with her best friend Ro and her brother Joey and her boyfriend Tim aka Detective O'Hottie. Ro and Joey are really hilarious and I just can't help laughing at their antics. Tim and Lucie grows closer in this book and I'm really happy that their relationship has reached another level. This is my most favorite book of this series so far and I really can't wait to read more. The mystery, the humor, the friendship and all the insanity of the Rizzo family just draw you into the story and leave you wanting more. ** I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Lucie and company have done it again...brought laugh out loud merriment to the next installment of the Dog Collar series. The whip smart dialogue and witty banter grabs you from the first paragraph and keeps you engaged through the entire story. Ms Giordano has a clever way of creating such engaging characters that just keep getting better and better with each new book. The relationship between Lucie and Tim is swoon worthy in how they compliment each other so well. Their chemistry nearly jumps off the page, where you find yourself cheering them in both their emotional and physical relationship. Even though the author is not graphic in the physical relationship between the couples, she still has a way of capturing the full impact of them coming together. I look so very forward to more stories of Lucie and crew...I know I'll always be very much entertained and will find myself laughing out loud spontaneously. This book was provided by the author for my honest review.

I LOVE this series by Adrienne Giordano about Lucie Rizzo & I think this book (the 3rd) is my favorite yet. Lucie & her ragtag group of crazy are so fun & the situations they find themselves in are just so awesome. I really like the relationship between Lucie & Tim- so fun to watch how it is evolving. I also enjoyed this book because Lucie seemed to finally embrace her family (mafia princess) & grow as a person. Can’t wait for the next book!

The Lucie Rizzo Mysteries are my favorite series! I love the laugh out loud moments as Lucie and Ro go undercover to try to solve the latest mystery. Detective Tim O'Hottie and Joey do their best to keep the girls safely away from trouble, but Lucie's and Ro's antics drive them crazy. In Dog Collar Couture, the relationship between Lucie and her detective boyfriend heats up. Dating the mob boss's daughter definitely keeps things interesting for Tim. He is the perfect addition to this wacky family. I highly recommend this series! **I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.**

Hilarious! This book had me laughing on almost every single page. Adrienne Giordano has a magnificent cast of characters in this series, and the situations she puts them through are unique and highly entertaining, to say the least. Is it weird that I feel like Lucie Rizzo is one of my best friends? Her relationships with her friends and family are written so well, that I can't help but feel like I am a part of the group. Plus, they have so much fun, who wouldn't want to be a part of this team? I find them irresistible. Lucie and Tim are the cutest couple, and Joey and Ro are awesome too! This is my favorite Lucie Rizzo book so far. The mystery and the story was strong, and the humor was off the charts. Let me just say that the convention and everything that happened there was hysterical. Kudos to Adrienne Giordano for being able to put hilarity in just about every aspect of the story. I think books this funny are a perfect escape from everyday life. It was captivating while I was reading it, and I have a feeling it will be bringing smiles to my face for a long time. I will think about it every time I see a peacock feather, and I will probably chuckle whenever I am walking down a hotel hallway as I envision Lucie...taking control of a situation. I don't want to give anything away. If you are looking for something fun, definitely give this one a try. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Lucie works with her best friend Ro, her family, friends and Eric the P.I. working for the insurance company in hopes of clearing her name and finding the missing dress.
