In her most catastrophic adventure yet, Whiskey Mattimoe proves that even bad examples need love-and a bullet-proof vest-too. Although the recession has chilled the tourist trade in Magnet Springs, Whiskey and Jeb are heating up. Before Whiskey can ruin their on-again romance with self-doubt, Odette lands a huge real estate contract with a wealthy, but philandering, developer. However, to sweeten the deal, Whiskey and Abra must attend the Midwest Afghan Hound Show; not as handler and prize-winning Afghan, but as examples of Worst in Show. Things go well until the shooting starts and before it's over, cars and bodies are riddled with bullet holes. To make matters worse, Abra runs off with the prize winning pooch, and Whiskey comes down with weird flu-like symptoms while unsuccessfully dodging bullets in Amish country. Will Whiskey survive her foray into the world of dog shows, or will the killer make sure she never sees Magnet Springs again?

Publishers Weekly, 2009-06-01 At the outset of Wright's frothy fifth cozy to feature Magnet Springs, Mich., realtor Whiskey Mattimoe (after 2008's Whiskey and Water), Whiskey agrees to enter her thieving "diva dog," Abra, in the Midwest's Afghan Hound Show as the "Education Dog" or "Bad Example." On the way to the show in Elkhart, Ind., breeder Susan Davies, who invited Whiskey and Abra, and Susan's co-breeder are shot at in their car. Soon after Whiskey arrives, breeder Mitchell Slater is shot dead. Meanwhile, Whiskey copes with bouts of the flu (or is it, gulp, morning sickness?) and frets about her affair with her singer ex-husband, Jeb Halloran. Dog show fans will find much to grin about, but sometimes the action gets too silly, and some readers may wonder why the neglectful celebrity parent of Whiskey's crime-solving eight-year-old sidekick, Chester, isn't reported to Child Protection Services.
