I'm Glad... and I'm Sorry

by Dr. Reed Storme, veterinarian at the Knobcone Heights Veterinary Clinic, featured in the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries by Linda O. Johnston

Hi, everyone.  This is Dr. Reed Storme.  As I've said before, I don't blog here very often... but here I am.

That's because Carrie Kennersly is involved in investigating yet another murder.   I'd been encouraging her to back off from her amateur investigations no matter who the main suspect was in the latest Knobcone Heights murder.  That's because I was worried about her and her safety.

But last year I backed off from telling her not to get involved because I was that major suspect.  That situation was memorialized in Pick and Chews.  And...well, yes, she helped to get me off because I wasn't a killer.

So now, this year, she's involved yet again, and I don't think she even knew the person who became the main suspect in the murder of Henry Shulzer.  Henry had been married to our town's first female mayor years ago, and Mike Holpurn was convicted of murdering poor Mayor Flora Shulzer.  But Mike was paroled early from prison, and when Henry was found murdered after that, Carrie got involved again.  The likely murderer had to be Holpurn, but Carrie wasn't convinced. 

And so, yes, she conducted yet another murder investigation.  I'm glad, because she seems to enjoy it.  And I'm sorry because she put herself in danger once again.

At least we saw each other a lot, spent time together along with our dogs Hugo and Biscuit... and increased the intensity of our relationship.

That latest book describing what Carrie was up to is called For A Good Paws.  And I have to admit I like the way it turned out...


  1. Can't wait for the opportunity to read "For a Good Paws" by Linda O. Johnston and to read more about Carrie and Reed and the adorable pooches!
