Dog Collar Cuisine

Lucie Rizzo Mysteries


If big business is a dog eat dog world, Lucie Rizzo’s tasty new idea will take Coco Barknell to the top of the food chain. Nothing says pampered pet chic like customizable dog food. At least Lucie thinks so. Her BFF-turned-partner isn’t so sure. Ro is the creative genius—not to mention the boobs—of their operation, but Lucie has the discerning business palate. And this venture smells like sweet success. All they need is the right investor.

French chef Antoine Durand made casseroles sexy again. His closely guarded secret recipe built a billion-dollar empire. He’s got the food industry cred and the cash to turn Lucie’s dream into a reality. And he just happens to be a Coco Barknell client. She gives him a taste of her proposal, and Antoine’s about to bite when a fire breaks out in his restaurant. Lucie saves herself and the chef’s prized Griffon Bruxellois pup. But in the chaos, Antoine’s priceless recipe is stolen.

The number one suspect? Lucie. Because a girl can’t shake her criminal connections in this town. She might be a mob princess, but she’s no thief. And she’s certainly no blackmailer. Someone has beef with the chef. The Rizzo crew needs to find out who, before Antoine puts Coco Barknell out of business…and Lucie behind bars.
