Kendra's first adventure
Berkley Prime Crime
Kendra is a high-powered civil litigator.
Or at least she was, till she got into some trouble and her
license to practice law was suspended. Needing a way
to earn enough money for Lexie and her to live on, she has taken
up petsitting and eventually, when her license is reinstated,
she begins to practice pet law.
But before she can resume her lawyering, some of her petsitting clients
begin to turn up dead--in the first Kendra Ballantyne mystery:
Sit, Stay, Slay.
And Kendra begins to wonder whether
losing her law license is the least of her worries.
"SIT, STAY, SLAY is
a very funny and exciting mystery. Although Linda O. Johnston
has written many novels, this is her best tale worthy of an
award nomination because it entertains yet shows the audience
what happens when an innocent person's life spins out of control
and how that person copes with the changes forced upon her. The
romance in this novel adds spice to a very clever crime
thriller." -- Harriet Klausner,
debut mystery series is excellently written and pays close
attention to detail. Readers will be eager to watch Kendra
adjust and then revel in her new life. This is a wonderful book
for winter reading." -- Vicky Gilpin,

"This is a fun, quick cozy to read. I
loved it. Kendra is a great character. She takes on pet sitting
with gusto and yet some fear. She is open to new experiences.
Once she starts investigating, she finds she has a knack for it,
along with a little help from Jeff.
I can't wait for the next book. I highly recommend this
book!" -- Dawn Dowdle,
The Best Reviews
"This promising mystery debut features
a puzzling mystery, a cute King Charles spaniel and a sunny Los
Angeles setting. The brisk
momentum of this clever plot, coupled with a surprising
conclusion, will satisfy even the most jaded armchair detective."

"This is the first book in the Petsitter Mysteries by Linda O.
Johnston. Overall, it's an exciting, fast-paced cozy mystery
with some romance thrown in to make it even more interesting.
Kendra is a young, energetic and mostly likable character.
I have already picked up the second
book in this series and have high hopes for it." --
