Hadn’t heard of this series before, but after listening to this one I so want to read more. The characters are appealing and being a dog lover, Jay and Drake stole my heart. The mystery was interesting and the main culprit was a surprise.

Thoroughly enjoyable cozy mystery. Loved the characters too. Sawdust the cat and the robotic vacuum cleaner added a delightful humorous touch.

Bennie Rosato's all-female Philadelphia law firm has seen better days, so it's no surprise when she jumps at the chance to represent Robert St. Amien, a debonair French businessman whose US interests are being stolen. Though Bennie sees dollar signs, there is a group of similarly situated foreign businesses also seeking damages, which brings the case to class-action status, something Bennie and her associates know very little about.
