Arf, Woof and More

by Biscuit, Carrie Kennersly's dog in the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries by Linda O. Johnston

Hi, it's Biscuit again.  I've barked here lots before.  I'm a dog--what people call a poodle-terrier mix--and I supposedly belong to Carrie Kennersly, the human who's the subject of the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries, but as I say often, in my opinion she belongs to me. 

Last time I was here, I said I thought my person Carrie might get involved in solving another murder.  She does that a lot, after all.  Well, it turned out I was right.

Before I say more about that, I'm going to repeat some more stuff about Carrie, me and our lives together.  She helps to make my life fun, though I'm tempted to eat all the time.  You see, I spend a lot of time in one of Carrie's two shops, Barkery and Biscuits, since that's the one where she bakes and sells lots of treats that I love to eat.  She calls them healthy dog treats that she created at her other job, as a veterinary technician at the Knobcone Veterinary Clinic.  Her other bakery is Icing on the Cake, which is right next door.  I like the scents that come out of there, too, but she doesn't let me go inside.  For one thing, Carrie sells some stuff there that she says could hurt me, like chocolate, so I listen to her--mostly--and don't pop into that store often, at least not when Carrie's there to stop me. 

Anyway, last time I barked--er, posted--here, it wasn't yet the month that humans call May. But May of this year was when the latest book about Carrie's murder-solving adventures was published.  It's called For a Good Paws, and since I consider my own paws good, I like that title. 

But will Carrie solve any more murders after this?  She seems to think she won't... but we'll all see.

FOR A GOOD PAWS, the fifth Barkery & Biscuits Mystery by Linda O. Johnston, was a May 2018 release from Midnight Ink.

  1. I hope Carrie has lots more murders to solve. Ooh, that sounded pretty gruesome, didn't it? :)

  2. Carrie tells me she has actually gotten used to solving murders--which she agrees is a bit gruesome, whatever that is. But she said that the publisher who's picked up her previous stories won't be publishing any more books at all, so even if she finds another murder to solve she's not sure it'll make it into a book.
