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
Could you imagine having your beloved pet stolen? If anyone did that to my wonderful Biscuit I don't know what I'd do. And I most certainly felt sympathetic to Janelle Blaystone, a photographer who came here to Knobcone Heights to get away from Los Angeles and its dog parks for a while after her dog Go was stolen from one of those parks. My brother Neal introduced her to me. She appears to be his newest romantic interest, and I do like her--and felt sorry for her.
Then Go miraculously reappeared, all the way here in
. Odd and coincidental? I thought so.
But there was a lot more to it than I originally imagined. Knobcone
Would you be surprised to hear there was a murder involved? I'm really not the kind of person who enjoys solving such things, but I am the kind of person who gets involved if I believe I can help. And since Janelle became the main suspect in the murder I had to at least try to help her.
The result was the story that's now been documented in To Catch A Treat. No, you can't read it just yet... but wait a few weeks. It'll be published in May, I understand, written by the same person who wrote about the first murder I solved, Linda O. Johnston. I was a suspect then, and what happened was documented in Bite the Biscuit, which was a finalist in the fiction category of the Dog Writers Association of America's Maxwell Awards. Interesting, right?
I thought so, although I'd much rather any fame I achieve be as a result of the wonderful dog treats I created and now sell at my dog bakery Barkery and Biscuits here in
, with my human bakery Icing on
the Cake right next door. Knobcone Heights
Anyway, I think you can preorder To Catch a Treat, and in any event it won't be long till it's available.
TO CATCH A TREAT, to be released in May 2016, will be the second Barkery & Biscuits Mystery by Linda O. Johnston.
