I love a good Lucie Rizzo Mystery and Dog Collar Chaos by Adrienne Giordano is everything the series represents. From the wonderfully wacky yet loveable characters to a mystery that takes a lot of whit and hijinks to solve. It doesn’t hurt to have a protective mob boss father and a hot Irish detective to add to the entertainment. The result includes lots of laughs and heart warming fun.

Lucie always has the best of intentions but somehow she always ends up in an uncontrollable adventure where she

A fabulous addition to Giordano's Lucie Rizzo Mystery Series, Dog Collar Chaos is definitely my favorite so far!
Coco Barknell teams up with industry big wig, Foo-Foo Entertainment, to put on a charity fashion show. Lucie and Ro hoped partnering with such a renowned company would help to grow their business further. What they didn't expect was to have their designs stolen or for the owner of Foo-Foo Entertainment to end up dead! When Ro is accused and arrested for Buzzy's murder, Lucie sets out t

This book was adorable. The characters have you adoring them. The story was light hearted and fun. Ro was loud and boisterous. She was talented and had a heart of gold. Her and Lucie’s brother were a hoot. He pretended to have control while she humored him.

Lucie was the one with quiet strength. She was trying so hard to prove she wasn’t a Rizzo that everyone knows that she forgets the good to the name and learns it in this book for sure. Her romance with Tim was so sweet. They were adorable tog

Another terrific Lucie Rizzo story! Adrienne Giordano's talent for comedy keeps bringing me back for more. This time, instead of Lucie getting in trouble with the law, Ro (Roseanne) is in the hot seat. It is fun watching Lucie, whose father is a mob boss, trying to convince people that she is not involved in her father's way of life. Even funnier is her boyfriend is a police detective who manages to keep true to his calling. I highly recommend this book.

I was pulled right into this story. The story has laughs, suspense, and heartbreak.

If you have not already read the below I would recommend reading those books first:
Dog Collar Crime (Lucie Rizzo Mystery, #1)
Dog Collar Knockoff (Lucie Rizzo Mystery, #2)
Dog Collar Couture (Lucie Rizzo Mystery #3)

This is more of Lucie's story. Lucie is trying to save her business. When Lucie’s business partner and BFF is accused of murder she knows she will do anything to help her out. When she has to get h

This series was absolutely brilliant! I really enjoyed reading this book because it is a cozy mystery that has a different twist as well as entertaining. Not only does it involve romance, mystery, suspense, but it was humorous as well and it will keep you glued to the pages of this fascinating story.

Dog Collar Chaos is the fourth book in the Lucie Rizzo Mystery series by Adrienne Giordano. Lucie and the gang always provide an amusing storyline with quick-witted banter from her sidekick Ro, brother Joey and detective boyfriend Tim. Throw in her mob boss father and you get one wacky story that gets better and better as it progresses. In this mystery, Lucie and Ro have joined together with Buzzy Sneider, the competition, to sponsor a charity fashion show for dogs. (I .love that there was no “f ...more

Another fun entry in the Lucie Rizzo series!

Somehow Ms. Giordano keeps coming up with the most hilariously implausible yet somehow possible crimes for Lucie et al to get swept up in (murder by atomic wedgie? Only in this series!) and all we can do is sit back and go along for the ride--with a great big smile on our faces. The quirky characters, offbeat crimes, and laugh out loud humor of this series reminds me of the Stephanie Plum books, but better--no PITA love triangle, because Lucie's defini

How many authors can turn the life of a mafia princess into a cozy mystery and make it work? I know one!! Whacked may be my favorite of this series although it is tough to pick among books I love. Adrienne Giordano’s trademark of intelligent characters, wonderful wit, and unique stories keeps me coming back for more.

Then Ro discovers that their fashion show partner, Buzzy, has been stealing Ro's designs and marketing them as her own. Ro, being a hot headed Italian woman, threatens to kill her.

There is one thing, among may others, you can depend on in this series, a roller coaster ride of hilarity, banter fired quickly and perfectly timed, and Lucie in the thick of things she should have given second thoughts to.

Another hilarious Lucie Rizzo adventure. Life around the Rizzo family is never dull but what’s a girl to do when her best friend gets arrested for a murder she didn’t commit? She buckles down and decides to help of course and thus the hilarity begins.

In this well written comedy/mystery, Lucie is hot on the trail to find a killer, with aid from her father the mob boss, her crazy brother Joey, the Cock-Heads, the Ninja Bitches and of course Mr. O-Hottie. Yep, the gang's all here and on the loose

𝑾𝒉𝒂𝒄𝒌𝒆𝒅, Lucie Rizzo Mystery, Book #4 (also sometimes known as "the adventures of a frustrated Mob Princess") by Adrienne Giordano.

I'd read the first 3 books in this series a few years ago and just never got back to it. Names of the early novels have changed (i.e. this one used to be called 𝐷𝑜𝑔 𝐶𝑜𝑙𝑙𝑎𝑟 𝐶ℎ𝑎𝑜𝑠). A classic case of too many available books, not enough time!!! However, I recently picked up books #4 and #5, so will be reading more of Lucie's zany adventures soon.

Adrienne Giordano never fails to make me laugh with her Lucie Rizzo series. All the books in this series, including Dog Collar Chaos, are designed to help you destress as you read about the antics of Luzie and Ro, and their relationship with each of their partners Tim and Joey. There's never a dull moment in the relationship between Ro and Joey and even though I felt like strangling them sometimes, they really bring a lot of life to the story. And I absolutely adore Tim. He is a saint to put up ...more

Things seem to be going great for Lucie. Her dog couture business is getting more successful, and she is involved in a dog fashion show with a well known personality that could make her business soar. Things are going smoothly until Ro discovers that one of her designs has been copied and sold by the other company. While trying to work this out, the same thing happens and Buzzy (from the other company) winds up dead. Unbelievably, Ro is arrested for her murder. Enter the usual cast of crazy frie ...more

When Ro gets arrested for murder, Lucie decides she needs to prove her innocence. This is a fun, fast-paced mystery that had me from page one all the way to the end. Fans of well-crafted cozy mysteries should add Dog Collar Chaos to their must-read list. Ms. Giordano never disappoints and I look forward to reading more from this ...more

Oh my I have missed Lucy and her crazy adventures and family and friends. This time though it hits close to home and she not only needs her dad and his connections. Then of course there is Tim, her cop boy friend who just might stroke out at what she does.
Read this book in one day as I just had to find out what was going to happen. Kept fingers crossed for Lucy and Tim.
Another great addition to the Dog Collar series.

Lucie is at it again! Only this time it's personal – her BFF, Rosanne (Ro) isn't going to be sent up the hoosegow if Lucie has anything to say about it. The story took on the twists that I've come to hope for with the previous Dog Collar books. Tim (McHottie) is along for the Lucie experience when she involves everyone to figure out the truth. I just love McHottie, he is the sweet but passionate family guy that every girl should find. And Lucie is Lucie, her friends help keep her grounded. Defin ...more

I love Lucie and her crew. This new adventure is so much fun. This time Lucie isn't in trouble, but Ro is the one arrested. Lucie can't let her best friend stay in jail and be convicted of a crime she didn't commit, so she has to investigate. Tim loves Lucie, but she is giving him an ulcer. Lucie is happy that Tim is able to handle the Rizzo circus, but she wonders how long that will last. I really enjoyed this new adventure.

Marvelous mob princess is at it again. Another hilarious adventure with her friend Ro and Detective O'Hottie. Best one yet. I probably said that about the last one and may say it again when the next one is published. Adrienne Giordano puts a smile on my face from page one to the end. I have to force myself to put down the book and rejoin life, but I really don't want the book to end. The author provided a copy for my voluntary review. I thank her for making my day so entertaining.

Loved this book!!

Best in the series so far. Lucie and Ro are doing great in businesses, things are going well with Tim (O'Hottie) and Lucie is coming to terms with the "Mafia Princess" title. What could possibly go wrong, then murder and Ro is arrested. I know I thought it would be Lucie too.

This book is funny, well written and just the right amount of romance. A must read in my opinion. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
