Review: Yappy Hour by Diana Orgain


Someone’s been barking up the wrong barstool in this uncannily enjoyable new canine mystery series from USA Today Bestselling author Diana Orgain!

Every Friday night in the idyllic seaside town of Pacific Cove, California, the Roundup Crew, a group of dog-friendly folks, have a spirited meet-up at their local wine bar. But when the owner, Rachel, leaves town on mysterious business―and her pet-unfriendly sister, Maggie, takes charge of the bar―things take a ruff turn. Not only does Maggie find a body sprawled on the floor, it’s accompanied by an incriminating letter with Rachel’s name on it. On impulse, she hides the letter from hunky detective, Officer Brad Brooks.

“Pull up a chair, put your barking dogs on ice and enjoy the first in a hilarious new series.”
Kate Carlisle, New York Times bestselling author, on Yappy Hour.

With Rachel as the prime suspect, Maggie sniffs out the scene on her own while getting to know the Roundup Crew and their four-legged besties. The Doggie Daiquiris and Muttgaritas are flowing, but it’s not long before another body turns up. Thanks to the Roundup Crew, Maggie’s new litter of friends will do anything to save the bar and solve the mystery. . .and maybe find a bit of puppy love in the process.

“[A] true winner.” Kirkus Reviews

Rating: 5-stars


Yappy Hour by Diana Orgain is one interesting yet deadly ride. From the beginning, this story has proven itself. The main protagonist is left to help her sister at the last minute. She doesn’t like animals and has to take care of the humans and animals that frequent her sister’s business. Only as she takes over, does she find a dead body, her sister seems to be incriminated, and the local men including the sheriff on duty has his eyes on her. This was the most hilarious, engaging, entertaining and fun read! Combine cozy mystery with a romance novel and you get this perfect novel. I loved how it contained all my favorite elements, kept me guessing, and how it hooked my emotions. I laughed, cried, and rooted for the heroine. The sisters sure have an interesting relationship. The romance bubbling is quite a journey within itself. Diana Orgain has caught my full-attention, and I will be reading her next book! Also, if you love animals, this is the book for you!
