    Reality pet show and murder

    As if Kendra's life wasn't full enough, now she's helping start a reality TV show about pets. She meets Dante DeFrancisco, the man financing the show, and there is an instantaneous attraction. When one of the judges is killed, the show's future is in jeopardy. I, personally, was sad that she was not with Jeff in this book, but I soon grew to like Dante. I like Kendra a lot in this series. She is smart and practical but yet can be spontaneous when the need arises. I have enjoyed every book in this series and look forward to more. I highly recommend this book and series.

    my first visit to this series

    Never say Sty is a fun little title. So are the others in this Kendra Ballentyne, Pet-Sitter Mystery series by Linda O. Johnston-Sit, Stay, Slay; Fine-Feathered Death; Nothing to Fear but Ferrets, to name but a few. And the book has a very fun cover-sweet little puppy jumping through a hoop, except that on closer observation that puppy's a piglet.

    This isn't the first book in the series, but the author does a good job of telling just enough to make the background make sense. Kendra works for law firm Yurick & Associates in her everyday life, but enjoys a second career as a pet-sitter, combining clever animal psychology with excellent people skills to earn an extra penny or two and keep the wolf from the several people's doors. She's also embarking on a third career promoting a new TV reality show where animals train and perform, and get voted off by audience and judges of course.

    The show is financed by intriguing millionaire Dante DeFrancisco, who apparently likes Kendra for more than just her animal skills. And it's judged by the usual trio of suspects, one of whom seems set to make a few too many enemies.

    The combination of human and animal mysteries makes for a fun read and keeps the pages turning, even if Kendra does seem to fall too easily under the spell of Dante's charms. The author's timing, pushing each mystery a little way forwards then spinning back to another, is excellent, and whatever I thought I'd guessed as I read, there was always more to seek.

    A very well-constructed tale, with pot-bellied pigs (yes, and dogs); I certainly enjoyed this and I'll be looking out for more.

    A view into the world of reality shows

    All of her Kendra books are interesting. I especially liked this one because of the supposed view behind the scenes of a reality show about animals. There is a bit of romance, but it is not overwhelming or explicit. Every lawyer's life should be so laid-back.

    a refreshing fascinating whodunit

    She is both a Los Angeles attorney and a pet-sitter, who solved a client¿s litigation problem by helping to create the pet reality show Animal Auditions. It is a Survivor type show using animals who are eliminated each week until the last one standing wins a great prize. At a meeting she met tall, dark and handsome Dante De Francisco who owns the chain Hot Pets. Kendra Ballantine is attracted to him and him to her although neither welcomes the feelings.<BR/><BR/>The first animals to be judged are pot-bellied pigs, who have a sense of smell, which is a key component of the competition. One of the judges mean tempered Sebastian Czykovski who is nasty towards the pigs and their owners. When he is murdered, the detective in charge Howard Wherlon leads the investigation as the usual sleuth has a conflict of interest being a contestant. Ned and his sister Nia are the prime suspects so Ned asks Kendra to help him find the real killer. She, her former lover, his assistant and Dante create an ingenious plan to smoke out the culprit.<BR/><BR/>Putting aside the fact a professional asks an amateur for help in a murder case, Linda O. Johnson¿s latest Pet-Sitter mystery is a refreshing (the normal in this series- see DOUBLE DOG DARE) fascinating whodunit. Still reeling from her break up with PI Jeff Hubbard, Kendra is hesitant to begin a relationship with an also reluctant Dante, who has a secret past that does not exist on record before his military duty. As is typical in this engaging series, the animals steal the show; this time the scenes with the pot-bellied pigs are hilarious as are those with the canines. Fans will enjoy the latest pet sitter caper.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
