Collared - L.A. Kornetsky I have been waiting for this book since the first time I heard about it. LA Gilman writing mysteries? Could it be anything but good?The Seattle that Ms Kornetsky described, felt like it was written by a Seattlite. It managed the fine balance of being detailed enough to be believable, yet not so detailed that the description bogged down the narrative.The characters were deliciously snarky, but what I especially liked was how Gin and Teddy complemented each other. Ginny was good at finding information and Teddy talking with people.I also liked how they had... not a love-hate relationship, but they were definitely not the best of friends.The mystery was well plotted and kept me hooked from the beginning. I loved how Gin and Teddy gradually started to realise that they were in over they heads. Yet, they refused giving up. After all, Gin had promised DubJay to find his uncle and her reputation was important for her busniess.I loved seeing how the attitudes in the Estate business had changed from when Joe started it in the 80's.One thing that I especially loved was that every scene in the plot was actually related to the mystery. (Yes, it might sound like an odd thing, but that's my pet peeve: Mysteries where something happen in chapter one, and then there is 150 pages of describing the characters life, and then they stumble upon the sollution.)So... What I didn't like. The pets POV:s. I enjoyed reading them, but it felt like they didn't add anything to the story. But maybe that will change in the second book.
