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.


"A mystery to delight dog lovers."―Booklist

"This sophomore outing is as delightful as its predecessor."―Library Journal

This is book two in the series and I enjoyed this one. The atmosphere is welcoming and fun. Dog lovers will not want to miss this one. Carrie has her hands full with her Vet job and her two barkeries. When she decides to take some time for herself and do a little hiking she never thought she would fins a dead body. Now she has to do what she can to clear her friends name and get back to work. This is a fun whodunit that will keep you wanting more.
