Enough for Now, At Least... and a Giveaway


by Carrie Kennersly, veterinary technician and owner of an adjoining barkery and bakery, whose adventures are memorialized in the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries by Linda O. Johnston



Okay.  You may know that I was involved in my third--yes, third--murder investigation recently. 

I still don't know why so many murders have occurred lately in my wonderful adopted town of Knobcone Heights, California.  Nor do I really like getting involved.  But I was the main suspect in the first one, and some friends became suspects in the second and third.

Enough already!  Or so I hope... though I suspect that's not the situation.

Meanwhile, I can live my life normally now, or at least that's what I intend.  I'm the owner of Barkery & Biscuits, a bakery where I sell the healthy dog treats that I created, and also its adjoining human bakery Icing on the Cake.  Plus, I still work part-time at the Knobcone Veterinary Clinic as a vet tech.  That's where I developed my recipes for the Barkery.

Just so you know, though, my most recent investigation was described in a book called Bad to the Bone.   And because that situation has been resolved I'm going to give away a copy of Bad to the Bone to a U.S. resident who leaves a comment here along with contact info.  I'll have my wonderful dog Biscuit randomly choose a name on Monday.

So... what do you think of dogs, doggy treats, and people treats?


BAD TO THE BONE, the third Barkery & Biscuits Mystery by Linda O. Johnston, was a May 2017 release.  And yes, there are more to come.

  1. I love them all. We used to have dogs but my daughter developed an allergy. What is life without treat? We all need them even my furry friends.

  19. I love dog's. I had a faun boxer that was a great member of our family. Of course, he loved dog treats, but give him a marshmallow, oatmeal cookie sans raisins, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream and he was extraordinarily happy!

  21. One of our elderly neighbors likes to borrow our dog for company on a weekly walk. Our dog loves it as he always gets dog treats when they finish the walk.

  22. What do I think of treats, human or animal? They are fine as long as they are few and far between. And healthy. The dog likes sweet potato, broccoli and carrot sticks. The cats like broccoli and carrot sticks. All cooked of course. My sweet potato is cooked the carrots and broccoli are raw. For the doggie and me an occasional peanut butter or pumpkin 'cracker' will do. Book looks very interesting. I look forward to reading it. Della at deepotter (at) peoplepc (dot) com

  28. Hello Linda! I LOVE your books, and this series is great! I LOVE DOGS, DOG TREATS ( NO I don't eat them!) ha, and just everything about dogs! This series is so good and I would LOVE to win a copy of Bad to the Bone! I have had Hodgkins Lymphoma for 15 years, and I would always bring a book to my chemotherapy treatments, and after I was done reading it, I would leave it there for another patient to pick up and enjoy! I "might" finally be in remission since I am on a new drug that destroys cancer cells and my doctor has me on a break from treatment since he saw NO cancer cells in my last three CTscans! I live in an apartment now, and my last dog passed away a few years ago. He was always near me when he knew I did not feel well! I sure do miss having a dog! I just love them! Thanks for the chance to win one of your books! I think the Barkery idea is great! Loved the first book! Patty pc1977@zoominternet.net

  31. My cats like treats. When we had a dog, she'd let my husband give her treats, but would ignore me. Guess we know who her person was. cheers (at) MarjimManor (dot) com

  34. We used to have big outdoor dogs on our farm. Now we live on a smaller farm right off a highway and we had to restrain our dog too much for him to be happy, so no dogs now. However, they loved anything extra we wanted to give them. My problem is too many treats. Thanks for this opportunity. jluebke(at)frontier(dot)com

  36. This looks like another fun series I'd like to check out. My toy poodle Ziggy would have loved Barkery and Biscuits. He thought he should live on treats alone. :-)
