BLURB from Goodreads
Disgraced Texas beauty queen, Melinda (Mel) Langston, owns Laguna Beach’s Bow Wow Boutique. Mona Michaels, Mel’s most despised client, owns a star dog, Fluffy, who's worth millions. When Mona is found whacked in the head with Fluffy’s Daytime Emmy, everyone wants Fluffy. And someone won't stop at murder to get the pooch.

Secrets. Blackmail. Mel tackles the case like a dog with a bone. But can she dig up the truth before the killer buries her?

MY REVIEW
As I explained in my review of Desperate Housedogs I downloaded the special omnibus edition which also contains Get Fluffy from Netgalley.
Again I love the chick-lit, almost cartoon type of cover. I also still like how the cover links into the books being detective stories with animals in them. This book picks straight up as the other left off. We jump straight into the scene of the Furr Ball event.
Get Fluffy is book two in the Pampered Pets Series and is centred around Melinda, rather than Caroline as in Desperate Housedogs. There is still the funny feud going on over the brooch. The lengths these cousins go to, to retrieve the brooch from each other is both amazing and comical.
Caroline also features in this book but much more briefly than in book one. Another character from Book One is the detective Malone. Again the murder victim is from the posh gated community and has a very pampered and rather spoilt pet dog.
Melinda runs Bow Wow Boutiques and so sells lots of doggy outfits to her posh/rich clients.
Again this book was funny, at time laugh out loud funny! It also had its sad elements, and all the mystery and suspense that we had in Book One.
So did I enjoy it? Yes, would I read more? Yes Would I recommend? Yes, this is the type of book to get you back into reading, its light, fluffy and funny too.
