Groomed for Murder (Going to the Dogs #2) by Zoe Dawson

We first met Brooke in Leashed (Going to the Dogs #1).  Brooke owns Pawlish an upscale dog grooming establishment.  When Mimi a bad tempered show poodle with an even worse tempered owner gets a bad cut things start to go wrong for Brooke.  Mimi’s owner is now suing Brooke for therapy for Mimi and is doing everything she can to destroy Brooke's business.  Enter Drew.  He is an ambitious young lawyer who is promised a corner office if he can convince Brooke to settle out of court.  Once he meets her his plans change.  He has never met anyone like Brooke and she reminds him of the man he wanted to be before life interrupted.  When Brooke is accused of killing Mimi’s owner Drew is forced to choose sides.
I bow in appreciation to the author.  It takes a lot to make a good girl like Brooke both real and likable.  Usually I want to gag when introduced to the sweet giving type Brooke is.  But the author made her real and somebody I wouldn't mind hanging out with.  I had a harder time with the oh so lickable Drew but he was real too.  I look forward to the next installment.
