Overview

When a Dog-Snatching Scheme Leads to Murder, Carrie Must Sniff Out the Truth

Carrie Kennersly, veterinary technician and owner of the Barkery and Biscuits bake shop, agrees to a day of hiking with her brother Neal—mostly because she wants to meet and critique his latest romantic interest, Janelle Blaystone. But instead of judging her, Carrie feels only sympathy for Janelle, whose beloved black Labrador, Go, was recently dognapped.

Janelle thinks the culprit is Ada Arnist, a wealthy homeowner spotted at the dog park where Go was stolen. Soon after Janelle confronts Ada, though, the woman is found dead. With Janelle and Neal on the suspect list, Carrie must solve the mystery before the police bark up the wrong tree.

Set in the mountain resort town of Knobcone Heights, Calif., Johnston’s uneven sequel to 2015’s Bite the Biscuit finds baker and vet technician Carrie Kennersly up to her eyeballs in dogs and disaster. Her younger brother, Neal, is interested in the pretty newcomer from Los Angeles, photographer Janelle Blaystone, who’s unhappy because her Labrador retriever, Go, recently disappeared from an L.A. dog park. Fortunately, Go later surfaces at an animal shelter, but the woman believed to be the dognapper turns up murdered. Meanwhile, Carrie’s romantic relationship with veterinarian Reed Storme blossoms, but several other men appear to take an interest in her. What could be a truly fun read for dog lovers suffers from too much repetitive detail about baking, while Carrie endlessly speculates about the possibilities involved in the crimes, to the point of considering virtually everyone a suspect, even Neal. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Creative Media Agency. (May)
