My Rating:

Former model Serena Oakley has opened Paws-A-While, a doggy daycare and spa in San Francisco. When a ruggedly handsome client walks in, holding a Yorki-Poo too dainty for his personality, Serena knows something's not right.

Undercover PI Nick Whalen has followed a series of identity frauds to Serena and is determined to dig up secrets he's certain she is hiding. Despite their mutual distrust, Nick and Serena find themselves bonding over an injured, orphaned dog. And soon they're arousing more than just suspicions. But will the pair trust in love enough to thwart a danger circling too close to home?
Serena has given up modeling for a career in the dog business. But when her doggie daycare, Paws-A-While, clients fall victim to identity theft, Nick Whalen arrives to find the culprit.

Nick goes into this case believing that Serena is the one stealing her clients identity. He poses as a new client with the aid of his aunt's Yorki-Poo Bessie. Serena is immediately suspicious of Nick because of the size of his dog.

Once Nick does realize Serena's innocence, they work together to find the real person behind the theft. They ultimately begin to become closer and develop deep feelings for one another.

This installment offered a dose of mystery just like its predecessor. Nick and Serena are both likable characters. The storyline just never took off for me. It was a little slow moving and never really offered any true connection with any characters.
