#TBTH – To Catch A Treat by Linda O. Johnston

To Catch A Treat by Linda O. Johnston

Carrie Kennersly, owner of a dual bakery serving both fresh dog treats and treats for the humans who love them has once again gotten involved in a murder investigation. This time her brother’s new girlfriend has been implicated after the woman she accused of stealing her dog is found dead.to-catch-a-treat

Carrie lands herself in the middle of this investigation by rationalizing that her brother may be in the crossfire, but it is obvious that her love of dogs and indignation over the dognappings is what fuels her fire. At times this didn’t feel like a cozy as the investigation took an extreme backseat to Carrie’s businesses. There seemed to be more information about part-time workers schedules than clues. I have to admit that the concept of a canine bakery is an interesting one and the treats as described were mouthwatering even for the dog treats.

The story does offer suspects galore and Carrie’s unsophisticated investigation style keeps the story moving a great pace. The end was a bit of a surprise as I couldn’t decide which of the suspects I was leaning more toward being the bad guy. This was a quick entertaining read.

This is the second installment in the five-book series ‘A Barkery and Biscuits Mystery”. The latest book, ‘For A Good Paws’, was released earlier this month.
