Mina Calvi, Italian transplant to Southern California, thinks her love life might finally come together, just as her professional life has. Her Furry Friends Foundation, a no-kill shelter for rescued cats and dogs, is a success, and Mina hopes she may find a loving forever home for herself, in the arms of Diego Moran, her elusive, frustratingly mysterious, on again-off again, lover.
When a seemingly innocent night out with friends lands Mina in a hospital bed and Diego undercover, and not the covers Mina wants him to be under, Mina has to draw on all her new-found maturity, and all her supportive friends for strength.
Meanwhile, a Best in Show cat takes up residence at the Ritzy Cats B&B, Mina’s other venture, setting Mina on the trail of a suspicious character who might not have the cat's best interests at heart.
Add a Matchmaker to the Stars, a temperamental Italian chef and the usual menagerie of people and pets, stir it all up and you have an entertaining, hard to put down romantic tale of suspense.

Praise for the Book
"I absolutely LOVE Mina's adventures. Maria Grazia Swan is at the top of my must read authors. [...] Each of Mina's adventures can be read as a stand alones but I must say, you will grow to love each of the reoccurring characters and the books will have a deeper connection if you read them all." ~ C Bradley
"I'm a Mina fan, I'll admit that up front. Her adventures are always unpredictable, with some romance in the mix. This time around we get to see what Diego, the love of her life, is really thinking, and what was going on in his mind in the previous book, when he ran into Mina after not having seen her for a long while. It is very sweet how he understands her and keeps her fears and insecurities in check. They make a great pair. And through the adventures in this book, you can feel their strong attachment, and get the feeling that it will last for a long time to come." ~ Italophile Book Reviews
"There are wonderful twists and turns in the book. The character are exciting, charming, funny and extremely captivating. I really enjoyed reading this wonderful story about Mina. I loved how her life is progressing with her business and Diego. If you have not read the series about Mina I highly recommend it. Maria Grazia Swan is a wonderful author and she brings her stories to life and keeps you wanting more. This is a must read!! I hope you love the story as much as I do." ~ Kim
"Once again, Mina’s adventures are numerous and unexpected. I love spending time with Mina and her friends, and Best in Show is like a visit with old friends, or maybe peeping into Mina’s diary. Her reunion with Diego is interrupted in a frightening and dangerous way and the search to discover who is behind the situation leads to a surprising discoveries. We also have a bitter sweet reunion with Kalinda who we get to know better. Mina hasn’t seen her since the explosion that was supposed to kill Diego. I think her experience are the best part of this novel. Another cat is the focus of questions and concerns and leads them in an unexpected circle." ~ Jeanie Jackson
"Another great one by Maria Grazia Swan. As usual her books leave you wanting for more, and she certainly delivered with this one. If you haven't read anything by this author you are depriving yourself of some really great books to read. Mina is still her feisty self, and all the people who are associated with her are always dragged into her escapes. Diego the love of her life constantly slips in and out of her life, I suspect one of these days he'll slip in and stay." ~ Margaret Mauro
