Book Description

Dec 31 2008 Wheeler Cozy Mystery
It's been a rough month for lawyer and pet-sitter Kendra Ballantyne. Her boyfriend and sidekick, Jeff Hubbard, PI, has gone missing -- right after they decided to move in together. It sounds like a case of cold feet until the authorities find his car submerged in a canal. Kendra's panicked inquiries lead her to Jeff's Aunt Lois, an ex–pole dancer and full-time eccentric. As Kendra picks up the scent of Jeff's investigation, she wonders: Was Jeff kidnapped?

3.0 out of 5 stars So-So June 20 2008
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I wasn't all that impressed with this installment of the series.

I really hate stories where the main character comes up with an idea or does something and all we're given is evasive comments about it. Such was the case with Kendra solving the mystery -- out of nowhere, she came up with the solution and managed to wrangle a group of strangers together to present it. I had no idea where any of this came from.

I also thought the whole Poop Scoop thing was silly and blatantly obvious right from the start. It added nothing to the story, other than to make me roll my eyes.

Kendra is also a lousy pet-sitter -- hugging and giving treats doesn't compare with showing up late to tend to her charges or pawning them off on the assumption her assistant is readily available to take over for her or bringing hers and Jeff's dogs with her to either meet strange animals or leave them sitting in her car. If my pet-sitter showed up with strange dogs, she wouldn't be pet-sitting for me anymore.

The author has such potential with this series, and I don't understand why she's not able to run with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars not as well written as the others, unbelievable plot lines March 19 2009
By 4fabfelines - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First off this one was not as well thought out and written as well as the others.
Kendra was just obnoxious to her friends and others and whining about her Financial state got old.Some of the plots were very forced and unbelievable, and i got real tired of the continuing fighting between her and Jeff.
Either poop or got off the pot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Time to say goodbye Dec 18 2012
By bookfanatic1979 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I think this is going to be the last book I read in this series. The plot seemed to drag on for much too long with little to no payoff. I've never (thank God) been in Kendra's situation with a missing-presumed-dead loved one so perhaps I'm not as sympathetic as I should be, but Kendra's frequent "Where's Jeff?" soliloquies coupled with the copious use of darling adjectives to describe the various creatures got on my nerves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cloning and Murder Aug. 17 2008
By Dawn Dowdle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Jeff Hubbard, Kendra Ballantine's boyfriend, is missing. Jeff had gone out of town like normal related to his work with his security and private investigation business. But when he ends up incommunicado and his Escalade is found in the aqueduct, there is concern he isn't coming back.

Kendra is a lawyer and pet sitter. She's also done some investigating in the past and helped solve some murders. Lois Terrone, a surrogate mother to Jeff Kendra had never heard of, enlists her aid. She had gone to The Clone Arranger to try to have her dog cloned. She feels they did something that caused her dog to die. Kendra visits The Clone Arranger to see what she can find out under the guise of wanting to have a dog cloned. Lois also tells Kendra that Jeff had come back to town to look into The Clone Arranger for her before his Escalade was found. Could he have found something that caused him harm? Is he alive?

Plus Kendra has her law practice and pet sitting to keep up with. These keep her plenty busy. She ends up working with a couple that run a business that trains animals for the movies. Some of their unhappy customers are suing them because their pets never got any parts. They never promised results. Can Kendra come up with an agreeable outcome to everyone?

This was a great installment in this series. I devoured it in two days. I thought the author did a great job of presenting the cloning aspect without too much controversy. I like how she intertwined the stories so seamlessly. She also did a great job of having Kendra having to go on with her life and yet showing her devastation at not knowing Jeff's fate. I really like Kendra, Jeff, their two dogs, and the other regulars in this series. Having Kendra working as a lawyer and a pet sitter gives so many great storylines in this series.

I hope this series will go on for years. I can't wait to read the next book! Please write fast!

I highly recommend this book.

I have learned a lot about the breed of malamutes. I enjoy this author's mysteries. The characters are lots of fun. Thanks!
