    entertaining Read

    This is a great series. Fun ,intriqueing, great characters, like the way the author is so creative and descriptive in telling the story.
    I always enjoy the varied pet sitting settings in this series, ,after reading feel have increased my knowledge of varied pets and their care.
    Kendra, herself is a very interesting character and her romantic encounters add interest but does not take away from the mystery.
    The way she incorperates her legal duties with pet sitting weaves a good story. Hope this series continues. I now have eight of books in series which I plan to keep in my personal Library for further re reads.

    Petsitting for your lover's ex-wife can be murder

    Amanda, Jeff Hubbard's ex-wife, asks Kendra Ballantyne for help avoiding her stalker. She wants Kendra to take care of her two Bengal cats for a few days. Kendra agrees begrudgingly. The stalker shows up and demands to know where Amanda went. Kendra refuses to tell him and realizes just what a menace he is. When Amanda returns home and finds the stalker dead in her house, she asks Kendra to help her prove her innocence. Kendra agrees only if Amanda will promise to get out of Jeff's life. Kendra soon finds out that Leon was a serial stalker and there are quite a few people who are happy he's dead. Problem is she can't find any one person who she thinks actually killed him. Plus Kendra begins to wonder if Jeff really wants Amanda out of his life. He says he does, but his actions tell another story. Can Kendra find the real killer without putting herself in danger? Does she still want Jeff? I love this series. Kendra is such a fun protagonist. She gets herself in some interesting situations. I love the peripheral characters and all the great animals she takes care of. The author has done a great job of creating such a likeable character that is three-dimensional. There is plenty of humor along with a well-plotted cozy mystery. I highly recommend this book.

    humorous, cleverly constructed murder mystery

    After an ethics violation, Kendra Ballantyne¿s law license was suspended and she became a pet sitter to pay the bills. Now that her license is reinstated she moved to the laid back law firm belonging to Border York and company where most of the lawyers are senior citizens. She works with Borden and is free to choose her own cases including those involving pets. She is still a pet sitter and has called her business Critter, TLC, LLC to prove she takes the business seriously. When her lover¿s ex wife Amanda Hubbard asks her to watch her two cats while she goes out of town Kendra very reluctantly agrees. The stalkers show up demanding to know where Amanda is and Kendra realizes how scary he is. She thinks he got into Amanda¿s home because the refrigerator was open. When Amanda returns home she sees her stalker dead in her house and the police think she is the killer. She begs Kendra, who has solved homicides before, to help her, and Kendra agrees when she promises to get out of her ex-husbands life. The problem is Leon was a serial stalker and had many enemies all glad to see him dead. Kendra comes up with a way to smoke the killer out and gets more than she bargained for with her intelligent but offbeat idea. --- MEOW IS FOR MURDER is a humorous, cleverly constructed murder mystery that fans who love and take great pleasure in intelligent and clever who done-its will thoroughly enjoy. Pet lovers will also appreciate Linda O. Johnston¿s latest crime caper with an eccentric cast that infuses the plot with a sense of jocularity and pets that readers would love to adopt. The heroine juggles her jobs yet still has time to help animals. --- Harriet Klausner
