      Clawed is the second book I have had the chance to read in the Gin and Tonic Mystery series. I enjoyed Clawed just as much as I did Doghouse. I love a good mystery and when you add in a couple of adorable animals with it, well I am a happy reader. Ginny Mallard and her loyal four legged companion Georgie are excited at the potential of a client in another town. Little do they know they are about to become a part of a big mystery that Ginny and her side kicks will be compelled to help solve. Tedd [...]

      Too disjointed. I think if the author had gone full out for the sidekick-pets-telepathically-communicate-and-help-solve type mystery this might have been cute and different. But she only half heartedly did this. She also only half-heartedly tried for a sassy girl protagonist. The book ends up being neither here nor there. Quite a few typos which was surprising. A poor, unbelievable (even for a book with communicating pets) ending. In all too many flaws to let slide.

      "Clawed" is the third book that I've read in the Gin & Tonic series, having somehow missed book two. By now the characters are well established. Ginny, "Gin" and Teddy, "Tonic" still push each other's buttons but now it's mostly for fun, because they can, instead of genuinely trying to get a rise out of the other. They've become friends and business partners. There's a tiny hint of romance and honestly, I hope that Kornetsky doesn't go there. I think their relationship would lose something i [...]

      Read my full review here: mimi-cyberlibrarian.c It's Mystery Month in the book world. and I have about 50 mysteries on my Kindle. 30 days and 50 mysteries. Don't think I will get them all read.Today's entry is an OK start with a cozy mystery called Clawed by L.A. Kornetsky, due out at the end of the month. It is the fourth in the series called "A Gin and Tonic Mystery" a name that is just too cute for words. Ginny is the "Gin" and Ted Tonica is the "Tonic." See what I mean! Ginny has a dog and T [...]

      Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine. - Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), CasablancaGinny walked into Mary's neighborhood bar and might borrow Rick's other famous line, "Teddy, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." Ginny (with George the dog) and Teddy (with Penny the cat) have turned their friendship into a budding hobby of private investigation in three previous novels. For their fourth adventure, CLAWED, Ginny's event planning business [...]

      Clawed by L. A. KornetskyThis is another pet's are smart mystery. Ms. Kornetsky has Georgie, the Sharpei, and Miss Penny, the cat as major characters. This mystery brings Ginny into conflict with both the police and a mysterious murderer.Once again I am appreciative of the relationship between Ginny and Teddy as well as the relationship between Georgie and Miss Penny. There is amusing musing by Miss Penny in this story. The relationship growth between the two humans is glacially slow. However it [...]

      Ginny Mallard (concierge), & Georgie (Ginny’s Shar-pei) are headed to Portland, OR for her 1st. job. Ginny arrives only to find her client Mrs. Adaowsky (72, retired teacher) dead. Will she be blamed? Teddy Tonica (P/T PI, bartender, Seattle) & Penny (bar cat) try to help Ginny solve the murder mystery. Will Ginny & Ted solve the crime before the Portland P/D does? I did not receive any type of compensation for reading & reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publ [...]

      I've only read the book before this one and I think you could pick this one up with no problems as well. You would know there is back story but nothing of such import that you can't follow along. While this one seemed to have less of Georgie and Penny (the dog and cat respectively) but they were still involved enough to lend some humor to the case.I have to say that this mystery had a lot of twists and turns and I found myself more invested in the people in the story than solving the murder. I w [...]

      Kornetsky's Gin and Tonic series are the best of cozies. Fantastic characters who we've seen grow over the course of four books and plenty of mysteries to solve. I especially like the interplay between the four-footed characters Mistress Pennydrops and Georgie.This book mostly takes place in Portland, where Ginny is meeting an out of town client. She's hoping this will help expander her burgeoning concierge business. Unfortunately, all she finds at the client meeting is a dead body. With Tonica [...]

      I received this book from GoodReads. Although I enjoyed the antics of Ginny and Tonica with their cat Penny and Sharpei Georgie in their researchtigations, I am puzzled and left with so many questions. . It was a pleasant "cozy" murder mystery with elements of whimsy . My one dissatisfaction: elements of the story were not integrated into consistent ending. We never know who initially hired Ginny, who is Michal, why the Feds were involved in the investigation, what role Dave and Ben played in WH [...]

    12. Kim Ledford on said:

      I would read more in this series. Things done well: Characterization of the pets was interesting without being too unrealistic. I enjoyed the way the cat and dog worked through their limitations of animal-ness, and helped without being "magical." I enjoy animal mysteries, because the multiple plot lines keep me interested. There were several plot twists that kept me guessing.Thing I would change: I didn't understand the motivations or thoughts of the main woman, Ginny. She seemed to do a lot of [...]

    13. Cheryl on said:

      This is the first of this series I've read. I was a little disappointed that the animals together weren't move involved in solving the crime. Their separation did add to their attachment to each other. Ginny did find the body but she had a strong alibi so she was never really considered part of the investigation by the police. The story was interesting with several twist and turns it kept you guessing whodunit and why. Although these questions were resolved not everything was concluded like agen [...]

    14. Vera on said:

      Ginny really could get herself in a mess. Even after finding a dead body and her fingerpints on stuff in a house she had no business entering since nobody had answered the door for her. Didn't even answer the phone when she called. She still went back to check around.Took me a few days off and on to finish. Lots of questions still no answers for when book ends. So can only give it a 3 star rating.

    15. Gloria on said:

      This entry in the Gin and Tonic series does have a murder, and while Ginny and Teddy would normally leave this to the professionals, the fact the Ginny has been drawn out of town to the house where she ends up finding the body makes her unable to let it go. Not my favorite, though a good entry. I just found the way they got Ginny from Seattle to Portland to be a little improbable. that's a quibble, though. Fun read.

    16. Janet on said:

      This one is set in Portland, and Ginny and Georgie carry a lot of the investigation on their own.

      ***I received this book as a First Reads Giveaway.***Cute & easy to read. Nice book to escape with, like on a long flight. I will definitely read more books from this series.
