In this second Gin & Tonic mystery, the stakes are raised when someone connected to an embezzlement scheme Ginny Mallard and Teddy Tonica are investigating is murdered.
A professional problem solver, Ginny Mallard can’t resist a call for help. And try as he may, Seattle bartender Teddy Tonica is powerless to resist a challenge. They may not agree on much—Teddy prefers bar cat Mistress Penny, while Gin’s shar-pei, Georgie, is her constant companion—but these friendly rivals make perfect sleuthing partners.
When Gin learns that the shelter where she adopted Georgie is being ripped off by a thief, she’s determined to find out what kind of lowlife would steal from a place devoted to rescuing dogs and cats. Gin and Teddy plan to rattle a few cages and save the animals from losing their home.
But when a body is discovered, and nearly everyone is lying, Gin and Tonica discover that it takes more than talk to nab a killer. Sometimes the best way to solve a crime is to bring on the big dogs. Or dog and cat, as the case may be. . . .

Fixed by L.A. Kornetsky: ‘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.
