Book 2 in the Barkery & Biscuits Mysteries 
by Linda O. Johnston

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.


This second book in the Barkery & Biscuits Mystery series is every bit as delicious at the first, BITE THE BISCUIT! Scratch that…it’s even better!

Seriously, author Linda O. Johnston knows how to win my heart. Dogs, a dog bakery and connecting human bakery? Pinch me I must be dreaming!

A missing dog, murder, and sweet treats, TO CATCH A TREAT has it all! Add to that of course, author Johnston’s wonderful writing, and you have a fantastic mystery that will leave you begging for more.

Make no bones about it, TO CATCH A TREAT is a doggone entertaining tail…um, tale.

Book one is this series if

Veterinary technician Carrie Kennersly has become known for offering healthy dog treats at the clinic where she works. So when the owner of the local bakery moves away, Carrie jumps at the chance to buy the business and convert half of it into the Barkery, a shop where she can make and sell her canine delights.
But Myra Ethman, co-owner of another pet product store, hates the new competition. At the Barkery's opening party, she badmouths Carrie's homemade dog biscuits, insisting she'll find a way to shut the place down. When Myra is found dead with a Barkery biscuit beside her, Carrie must prove she didn't do it before she's collared for murder.

  1. Thanks, Lisa. Hope your Sunday is relaxing.

  2. I want them. She is such a good author and dogs are my thing. I can identify with the Janelle; we never did find out who stole our baby girl but I was so angry and worried about her feeling rejected for at least the 3rd time. Mysteries and dogs, the perfect combination.

  3. Cute review. I just finished this one last week. Thanks for sharing.
