Description:

Carrie Kennersly, a veterinary technician, has become known for offering healthy and popular dog treats at the clinic where she works. When the local bakery's owner moves away, Carrie jumps at the chance to convert it into the Barkery, a shop to 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. So 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. 

My Thoughts:

This is the first book in the Barkery and Biscuits series and it follows Carrie Kennersly a vet tech, who has opened to stores one that specializes in adult bakery items and one that specializes in doggie treats.  Carrie makes these homemade treats on the premise.  At the grand opening of both stores she seems to be doing well until Myra Ethman and her  husband Harris come in and instigate fighting verbally with Carrie.

The next day Carrie awakes to find that Myra has been killed and is shocked to learn that the police seem to be narrowing in on her.  Carrie has to find out who really did it so the police will bark up the right tree and not Carrie's tree.

I loved this adventure and mystery.  I have loved every book written by Ms. Johnston she is really a great writer with her writing about pet owners, and the care they take with their animals and also adds the element of mystery that the main character has to muddle through to find out the bad guy.  Can't wait to see what she comes up with next! Definitely a barking great adventure!
