As a technician for a local vet and the owner of the Barkery & Biscuits dog bakery, Carrie Kennersly is proud to give back to the community by helping out with a rescue animal adoption event.

PICK AND CHEWS has a well thought out plot. The murder comes later in the book which gives readers a chance to learn more about their surroundings and characters instead of jumping right into the murder.
Author Linda O. Johnston puts her all into each and every book she writes. PICK AND CHEWS, like her stories before, lea ...more
I'm really sorry to say this, but I just couldn't complete reading this book. There were various grammatical errors. The plot seemed like it was going at a sluggish pace, and it wasn't paced well enough to keep the reader engaged into the book. While the summary of the book seemed interesting enough, the actual book itself disappointed me. Also, at times it felt that the author meandered away from the plot.
All in all, I wouldn't give this ...more
Ouch. The awkward moment where a book that should tick all the boxes ends up ticking none and you cannot wait for it to be over. Let me start by saying this is my first Linda O. Johnston book, although I have had them on my radar for many years. I even put the first book in this series on my Christmas wish list (Kind of hoping they pick one of the 50+ other options now) So I went into this with high expectations. They all ...more
The mystery was decent but it dragged a bit. It took way too long for the victim to be killed, and the pacing never really picked up from there. I was surprised by the killer, but by then I really didn't care who did it.

So I fell in love with Carrie and Biscuit back with book one so of course I just had to get my hands on this newest installment and I was not disappointed. This time Carrie gets wrapped up in the murder of vet that came to town and Reed is one of the main suspects since the two did not get along. Of all people to be murdered I have to say I was not upset at the choice for this one. That wa ...more
I was extremely disappointed in this book.
I did volunteer to read an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley.
This is the fourth book in the Barkery and Biscuits series, and this was my least favorite in the series. The relationships between the characters didn't seem to gel as well as in previous books, especially between Carrie and Reed. The murde ...more
I felt this story was off to a slow start. I didn’t have a nice warm & fuzzy feeling for Carrie & Reed. I really hope they don’t make it as a couple.
As for the murder & solving it, in my opinion it took way too long to happen and then solve.
This is a standalone story that you do not need to read any of the others. You are told what you need to know and the ...more
This fun story will keep you guessing and re-guessing up until the very end. Join Carrie and Biscuit and the gang as they try to say Dr. Reed and thus save Reed and Carrie’s relationship.

I found the story dragging on and the writing style clunky. While others complain of grammatical errors, ARCs clearly state that the book is not edited o ...more
As for my review, I didn't like the story that much just like other fellow reviewers because a lot could have been done wi ...more

It’s the story of Carrie Kennersly, owner of Bakery & Biscuits and Icing On The Cake, part time veterinary technician at the Knobcone Veterinary Clinic, and a pretty good amateur sleuth when it comes to solving murders.
Bakery & Biscuits and Icing OnThe Cake is really one business but with two entrances. They share a central kitchen where goodies for both four legged critters and humans are ...more
