Bad To The Bone
by Linda O. Johnston
The premise of this storyline is cute. I loved all the pets and their owners who frequent Barkery & Biscuits and Carrie has endeared herself to the townspeople.
~Cinnamon, Sugar, and a Little Bit of Murder
I enjoyed the book. I enjoyed getting to know the characters.
~The Journey Back
This book is a great example as to why I have a newfound love for cozy mysteries…This was a really fun yet mysterious and a little romantic read…
~Rainy Day Reviews
The story was good and I’m glad we got to know more about Carrie and Reed’s relationship. I wonder if there will be wedding bells soon for these two?
Definitely kept me engaged until the mystery was solved which was great totally wasn’t expecting who the murderer turned out to be or why. Definitely a paw above the rest.
As usual, the dogs add a much needed lighter and cuddly element to this cozy series.
I really liked Carrie she was a fun character and when a book is told from the first person, that character has to be fun.
~A Chick Who Reads
There were many twists and turns in this book that kept it really interesting, and since I am a dog lover, reading about all the wonderful dogs was a huge plus.

Overall, Linda hit this one out of the park. It was delightfully catty in some spots, and Carrie was the perfect sleuth in this case.
