When a patient leaves his estate to Piggy, a sexy photographer beings sniffing around Nell. Piggy devises a plan to keep Nell's head out of the clouds--and more in the cookie jar.

What a fun book! I often wonder what goes through my dog's head throughout the day. No need to wonder ever again after reading this charming story about a sexy, financially savey hooker that is reincarnated into the body of a short, fat Corgie service-dog!

Beautiful Lynda Keene was selfish and nasty until she was murdered while making "whoopee" with her best friend's husband. Lynda awakened to find herself condemned by Stanley the bean-counter to work undercover on earth doing good deeds. However, Lynda finds that she does not return as a perfect 10, but ironically as an obese Corgi, looking more like a "basketball with legs".
Now living in Cottonwood, Arizona, her current owner writer Nell Jordan places Miss Piggy as everyone calls her on a strict diet forcing the starving canine to seek crumbs. The two females visit medical facilities and nursing homes to provide comfort to the patients and residents. When senior citizen Frank Cramer dies, he bequests a fortune to that 36-24-34 soul, Miss Piggy, whom stayed with him until his last breath. Private investigator Dan Travis goes undercover as a photographer investigating Nell at the request of his agitated mother over her dad's estate going to the dog. Miss Piggy does not trust this gigolo romancing her pet human, but those feelings conflict with her prime directive of performing good deeds through matchmaking.

When Miss Piggy wags her tail, the story line is clever, insightful, and fun as a not so repentant Lynda acts good, bad, but definitely no longer sexy. The story line has a bit of suspense with a wannabe dognapper, but that takes away from the charming prime theme of Piggy matchmaking yet also preventing a match as the dog struggles with FINDING MR. RIGHT for Nell. The animal therapy scenes are educational and augment a strong romance with a funny bone that sends fans to the dogs.
