"A funny paranormal romance that rocks"
After being murdered in Denver, drop dead gorgeous Lydia
Keane learns that she is not yet heaven bound because she
failed to take life seriously. Instead Stanley, agent of
the Powers To Be, assigns Lydia the job of matchmaking as
she recently did for her best friend, Amy Cameron. The
cosmic joke of returning to earth as a dog again takes much
of the bite out of Lydia's second engagement.
This time she must help wedding consultant
Josephine "Joey" Cole find an ideal mate. Joey is
arranging the ceremony between Alicia Sommers and the law
enforcement official who saved the bride's life, Ben
Ramsey. Lydia as Piggy the Corgi canine decides that Joey
and Ben belong together even if both deny the attraction.
However, the situation turns dangerous as someone stalks
the bride adding extra work for Lydia if she is to succeed
in her second matchmaking endeavor.
The sequel to the whimsical FINDING MR. RIGHT, DIAMOND
IN THE RUFF is an engaging paranormal romantic suspense.
The story line is fun when the amusing Piggy takes center
stage. However, the subplot involving the dangerous
stalker is exciting, but takes away from a facetious prime
plot. Lydia remains delightfully incorrigible as her
capricious outlook on life and the afterlife makes her a
modern day Holly Golightly. Emily Carmichael has the right
ruff with this series and hopefully the author provides a
heavenly romantic tale between the fluffy Lydia and Stan
the man (or whatever).
