Description:

As a technician for a local vet and the owner of the Barkery & Biscuits dog bakery, Carrie Kennersly is proud to give back to the community by helping out with a rescue animal adoption event. She's also happy to be in a relationship with veterinarian Dr. Reed Storme, despite his repeated pleas for her to butt out of the murder cases she keeps finding herself involved with. But when Reed is accused of killing nasty Dr. Raela Fellner, a former veterinary colleague who is now trying to compete with him, he seems a lot more amenable to having amateur detective Carrie butt back in. Can Carrie clear Reed--or does she care too much for a killer?

My Thoughts:

This book follows Carrie and her friends and family.  In this one Reed is trying to help hire a new veterinarian when someone from Reed's past comes back to make trouble in a big way Dr Raela Fellner is determined to undermine the local vet hospital anyway she can.  Before she  can implement her plan she winds up murdered in her own vet. clinic.  Did Reed kill her?  Or was it one of her other previous co-workers?  Carrie is determined to figure out who injected the lethal dose.  Can she figure it out in time or is Biscuit about to be a victim of murder?

I enjoyed seeing what everyone is up to in this series.  We got to see how things have been going or not going so to speak!  When Reed ends up in trouble Carrie really comes through to figure out what is going on.  I really thought it was a great animal cozy mystery for those animal lovers out there who love a great mystery.  I even found myself surprised at the end!
