Los Angeles attorney and part-time pet-sitter Kendra Ballantyne has a lot more time to tend to animals now that she’s determined to stay out of the perfectly toned arms of super hunky investigator Jeff Hubbard. But all too soon, her time is tied up chasing a truly nasty pet-napper.
Kendra’s nightmare starts when she makes an early stop at the home of an uber-wealthy film producer to check on his beloved pup and iguana—only to find them missing and a ransom note on the iguana’s cage. Through her Southern California pet-sitting club, she learns that other four-legged clients have been snatched, too. Then a fellow pet-sitter turns up bludgeoned to death. Kendra has her suspicions, but it soon appears she’s barking up the wrong tree. And it becomes clear that she’ll need nine lives to escape this cold-blooded killer who’s friend to neither man nor beast.
Linda O. Johnston is a lawyer and a writer of mysteries, paranormal romance, and romantic suspense. She lives in the hills overlooking the San Fernando Valley in California with her husband, Fred, and two Cavalier King Charles spaniels, Lexie and Mystie.
