A light, new cozy series starring a tiny Chihuahua with a HUGE personality. Pepe talks but only Geri can understand him. She's newly divorced; he was rescued from the Los Angeles pound. And, at least according to Pepe, he's had lots of adventures. All of which will help Geri solve the murder she has stumbled on. It's a cute idea - similar to many other mysteries with animals, but a good representative of the genre. I must admit that Pepe comes on a little strong at the beginning (he's rather conceited and arrogant), but he grows on you as the book progresses. I'll be keeping an eye out for the next in the series.
