Title: Must Love Wieners
LOVE—UNLEASHED. . .
First in a wickedly funny new series brimming with mystery and romance!
Piper Summers works like a dog juggling three jobs to put herself through veterinary school—driving taxis, delivering pizzas, and singing telegrams. Thankfully, Piper has her devoted dachshund Colin to help her keep things in line. That is, until she gets fired...and someone throws her a bone that is too good to resist.
Aiden Caldwell is an Armani ad come to life—a billionaire CEO who’s just adopted a dachshund from the rescue center where Piper volunteers. He’s hot on Piper’s tail to be his personal dog walker...but he may be after more than a walker for his wiener. The gorgeous, spirited Piper is everything he’s ever wanted from a woman—and more. But can Piper ever love, and trust, a man who has never learned to open his heart—or has she bitten off more than she can chew?

I fell in love while reading Must Love Wieners. Colin and Sophie are so cute together. I wanted to read more about them and I could not get enough of their fun and games. These two dachshunds stole my heart from the moment they entered the story. Before you ask, yes I had 2 Wieners in a previous life. They were so adorable but didn’t like hearing a no. Casey Griffin captured the essence of those dogs in her book, they are so stubborn but looking at them it is making every single person melt as ice under the sun.
Colin is present throughout the story. Knowing that I chose to read this book especially for the dogs, it made it a key element that contributed to its success. Colin and Sophie are treated as human characters and that how it should be when dogs are part of a story. It is refreshing to have them not as a fixture but having some character developments as well.
The story main focus is the dog rescue shelter and it felt as if I was there and hearing the dogs barks and play. The shelter mission is to take the dogs that would normally be euthanized and heal them. Once it is done, it is time to find a happy home for them. Piper is volunteering at that center. It is one of her many occupations while finishing studying to become a veterinarian. She is a character full of humor and she is stubborn (a little like a dachshund). She wants to do it all by herself, even though money is a problem. She is juggling between 3 jobs : taxi driver, singing telegram and delivering pizza. She is a little overwhelm and underperforming at them, but she desperately needs the money. Her brother is a big shot lawyer and has a lot of money. She despises him and his money and vowed to work hard to gain money. She is not one that will ask for help and she won’t accept it if someone tries to make it easier for her. Aiden is at the other end of the spectrum. He is a CEO of a big investment firm and has little time for anything else than being serious. He has a lot of money and works hard to protect his father legacy. As soon as he lays his eyes on Piper, he knew he was in trouble. As a twist of fate, Aiden went to the dog rescue shelter to adopt Sophie and he and Piper met again. He asked Piper to walk Sophie when he is at work, and little by little Aiden and Piper get to know each other. Aiden is a loving character, all about not mixing business with pleasure and he has a golden heart.
A lot is going on in this story. Piper is on the receiving end of a lot of threats and incidents. It is full of mysteries and each time that we think we know who is behind those actions, Casey Griffin is shifting the focus in a whole new direction. We get to know what really happened at the end of the story and I have not seen it coming. I love this book. It is heartwarming, stressful and full of humor. It is very unfortunate that I have to wait to have the chance to read the second book, I want to read it right now!
