    Chapter 1

    "Alex. Alex. Alex." The unnerving sound of my own name being called repeatedly aroused me from my sleep. I took in my surroundings and found myself to be in the room I always woke in— a poorly lit academy appartment with dark chestnut wood furniture. I peeled back my black and white checkered covers and hopped on the cold wooden floor, pulling on my black hoodie. A rattling noise sounded as I spread open the velvety curtains, revealing a small window. It appeared as a screen expressing the scene of a grey rainy day over a low moor. I spun around in slow circles, trying to locate the sound of the voice. But there was nothing to be heard or seen. Yawning sleepily, I glanced at the digital clock at my bedside to find the bright green screen projecting the numbers 6:30 AM. Way too early for me. Classes started at eight anyhow. Assuming I had enough time to doze, I started to crawl back into bed. That's when I heard a disruptive noise. A low machine-like hum followed by a metalic clang echoed off the walls, seemingly just outside my room, but coming to high to belong to someone else's since I housed at the top floor. "Hullo?" I said ever so quietly. All the response I recieved was another clang. The AC could possibley be having problems, but I'd never heard this before. I shrugged it off then turned back to my bed, but then came the voice. "Alex?" I heard a small creak then soft thud behind me and whipped around, finding myself face to face with a rusty brown-haired boy about ten years old, three years younger than myself. His face was a pale ivory, which made his eyes brown eyes deepen in darkness and seriousness. His white skin was one thing, but something else worried me. Id never seen him in my life and he knew my name. "Hello, Alexandera. I've been looking for you." (Ending abruptly. Sorreh.)

    Missing wolf and murder

    The mama wolf goes missing at the wild animal sanctuary Dante runs. Kendra jumps in to help find her. Since a human would have had to help her escape, everyone related to the sanctuary is a suspect. An employee is found dead. He doesn't seem to be who he said he was. Can Kendra figure out who killed him and why as well as who kidnapped the mama wolf and why?

    I really enjoy this series. Kendra is such a likeable sleuth. Dante DeFrancisco, the new man in her life, is growing on me as well. I like the other regulars in the series. I always look forward to reading a book in this series. I highly recommend this book and series.

    an enjoyable tale

    When she was a big shot Los Angeles attorney Kendra Ballantyne hated her on call 24/7 life. She reengineered her lifestyle becoming a pet-sitter who also works animal rights cases. Adding to her belief she lives the near perfect harmonious life is her boyfriend Dante DeFrancisco, owner of HotPets pet supply chain.

    Dante sponsors HotWildAnimals sanctuary in the San Bernardino Mountains. Everyone is ecstatic over the birth of three wolf pups. However, the elation is tempered by the fact that the mother is missing, which means feeding the infants from bottles. The biggest concern is that for the wolf to vanish from the compound required a human letting her out or perhaps abducting her for ransom. Kendra meets Dante's friend, movie star Brody Avilla, who seems to exclude her when the men talk seriously with one another. She conducts an inquiry starting with Dante's computer that leads her to employee Jon Doe, who's found dead in the wolf enclosure.

    The latest Pet Sitter amateur sleuth whodunit (see Double Dog Dare and Never Say Sty) is an enjoyable tale with two mysteries; first there is the missing she-wolf and second identifying a killer. The shift in locale refreshes the fun series as Kendra's enthusiasm is catching. Although she has success in catching criminals including murderers, readers, especially newcomers, will have doubts that the pet sitter should investigate the homicide even with the missing mother mystery seemingly tied to the murder. Still fans will enjoy Kendra's latest whodunit as her energy, élan and love of animals (as well as Dante) make for an appealing investigative story.
