Lauren Vancouver is the administrator at HotRescues, a No-Kill Animal Shelter in Los Angeles, California, but she works with a whole network of groups and people to save and protect our furry friends. Save Them All is a new shelter that is a place for those handicapped and senior pets that need more care and are extremely hard to place in loving homes. Lauren is thrilled about this new shelter and it all ready to help Bella Frankovick promote her new venture anyway she can. Then Bella's husband is murdered and Bella is the prime suspect. To help Save Them All, Lauren must help Bella prove her innocence and get a leash on the real killer. Again Linda O. Johnston shines a light on another pet issue, handicapped and senior pets. They may have issues but can live without pain and a pretty good quality of life. They just need to find the right homes. Save Them All Shelter sets up the perfect bridge between the two. She wraps this information is a clever mystery for amateur sleuth Lauren to solve with plenty of distractions to keep the reader guessing. These are wonderful characters that connect through their love of animals and become friends and maybe a bit more. Pet lovers will love this story and you may even want to rescue a pet yourself.

I love books that bring attention to societal concerns and in this one the focus is on shelters for handicapped and elderly animals. In this caper, the woman in charge of this facility quickly becomes the prime suspect in the death of her husband. Knowing that she’s innocent, Lauren begins an investigation and soon Lauren is in the crosshairs of a killer. In this evenly-paced mystery, I was so sure I knew who the killer was until the author’s direction led me to other possibilities with the many twist and turns that kept me guessing throughout most of this page-turning drama. Lauren is a likable character and I enjoy watching her dogged pursuit in bringing a killer to justice. This was a good read and I look forward to the next book in this endearing series.

The latest edition to the series fails to captivate. The second installment was better than this edition. The characters and plot presented a couple of issues for me. The main character comes across as a bit superior to everyone and spends more time away from the shelter than actually running the shelter. The main plot line is that the main character, risks the shelter, the animals in the shelter, not to mention herself, for someone she doesn't know and has no reason to trust. Throughout the book, the character talks about a marathon for which she is training. It wasn't, it was only 6 miles. It included pets. But if that simple fact was incorrect, it makes me doubt the other facts presented.
