Mystery Pet Star Games and a Giveaway by Joyce Lavene

Mystery Pet Star Games
By Joyce Lavene

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Today we have a round-up of your favorite mystery pet stars from across the spectrum of books from Joyce and Jim Lavene (also J.J. Cook).

On my right is the pet star cat of the Pet Psychic mysteries, Baylor. Beside him is Shakespeare, the Great Dane from the Peggy Lee Garden Mysteries.

On my left is Creme Brulee, famous star of the Biscuit Bowl Mysteries, and Hero, the Dalmatian of the Sweet Pepper Mysteries.

My first question to all four star pets is: “How important is your role in your mystery series?

Baylor: “I’d say my human, Mary Catherine Roberts, couldn’t solve a mystery without me. That’s why she keeps me with her all the time. There wouldn’t be a pet psychic if it wasn’t for me."

Shakespeare: "I love Peggy. She’s the best person in the world. She saved me, you know. It wouldn’t matter if I was with her or not. She’d always do the right thing.”

Baylor: “You’re such a dog, dude! Show a little backbone, huh?”

Same question to Creme Brulee and Hero!

Creme Brulee: “I love Zoe Chase, my friend, but she wears me out just watching her. Always looking for something else to do. She’d be better off if she just sat once in a while – maybe take nap, you know? Are there any snacks around here?”

Hero: “I work with the Sweet Pepper Fire Department like my fire chief, Stella Griffin. I’m part of the team, saving lives, and houses. One of us alone isn’t important. It’s the whole team that matters.”

Baylor: “Another dog opinion!”

Hero: “What’s wrong with wanting to help our special people?”

Creme Brulee: “What’s wrong with some salmon in a bowl?”

Baylor: “Hey – Creme – food later. Debate now.”

On to our second question!

Baylor: “I’m so out of here.”

Creme Brulee: “ZZZZZZ-um-pff.”

Hero: I’m ready when you are!”

Shakespeare: “I need to go for a walk. Are there any trees around here? I really like pin oaks, but I’d settle for a nice pine or an elm.”

Thank you for being here for Mystery Pet Star Games!

  1. I enjoyed the Q&A portion of the Mystery Pet Star Games, and how the pets view their humans (and each other in some cases). LOL

  14. I loved the interviews... Now I'm wondering what my dog thought of us when she was alive. To the J's. I love your books and as you well know I own a few of them.. I'd never heard about the Peggy Lee series until just a week or so ago. So, just sayin, if I'm the lucky one I'd love one of them to try, or the latest Missing Pieces. LOL

  34. Such an entertaining interview! I can imagine what our 4 dogs would have to say if they could speak "human". I believe they rarely have difficulty getting their wants across in dog speak and action. Just curious, what pets do you share your home and love with? servedogmom@yahoo.com

  37. Love your books. I love the ones set in Tennessee. Lived in Nashville for twenty years and with my job, the only county I never visited in TN was Lake, Saw the entire state. Places that no one else even dreams of driving to unless they live there.
