~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book​

This is a promising start to a new series and one that kept me guessing right till the end.
~Musings and Ramblings

The story line is well developed and Carrie as the protagonist is likable with both depth and believability.
~Christa Reads and Writes

This is a mystery that keeps you guessing till the revealed. I liked the main character Carrie. Lots of drama. Lots of animals.

Linda O. Johnston gives us a victim we dislike and plenty of suspects with motive. Bite the Biscuit gave me clues, red herrings, and lots of detailed characterization which had me puzzling over the suspects. Since the author also had me craving baked goods, I’m pleased to say she also included recipes for both humans and dogs.
~Cozy Up With Kathy

Full of interesting characters, dog care information, a well-constructed mystery, and lots of yummy food for both humans and dog, the story kept me engrossed. I read it in one sitting.
~Bea’s Book Nook

This is a fun first mystery in Linda O. Johnston’s new series.Carrie is a great protagonist, and the book is well written, with a good mix of description and dialogue to move the story along quickly.

You can always count on Linda O. Johnston for a great pet cozy, and this first book in the Barkery & Biscuits mystery series is no exception.
