A Pet Rescue Mystery
Berkley Prime Crime
Los Angeles animal shelter manager Lauren Vancouver has a
soft spot for animals in need—and a keen eye for crime. . .
Thanks to a savvy ad campaign featuring teacup pups
sporting HotPets Bling—a new line of faux jewelry dog
collars—small dog adoptions have skyrocketed across the city. So
when Lauren discovers a shelter in the Midwest with more toy
dogs than it can handle, she arranges a private plane to swoop
in and fly the pups back to LA.
But Lauren didn’t count
on rescue worker Teresa Kantrim coming along for the ride.
Teresa has cared for the dogs since they were found and doesn’t
trust anyone from La-La Land to take over the job. Her biting
comments clearly haven’t earned Teresa any new friends, but when
she turns up murdered, it’s time for Lauren to dig into Teresa’s
past and find out who wanted her put down.
"Teacup Turbulence is a cozy mystery. This book
is the fifth in a series. You don't need to read the previous
books to understand this one, and this book didn't spoil the
whodunit of a previous books. Overall, I'd recommend this
novel to dog lovers or those who are interested in these aspects
of the pet industry." -- Debbie,
"This was the second book that I have read in this series and it
just keeps getting better. This book kept my attention
throughout. If you love a good mystery and are an animal lover,
then this book is for you. Great job Linda, I can't wait for the
next Pet Rescue Mystery, and I am going to try to read the ones
that I have missed." -- Melina,
"I had no clue who the killer might be. That kept me turning the
pages, searching for clues, and surprising me with the culprit
in the end. I really didn’t see the murderer coming. I’ll be
reading more from this author and I’m sure I’ll be entertained."
-- Laura Thomas,
"I love books about animals, especially dogs, and I am
definitely no stranger to Linda’s books! I first got hooked on
the pet sitter series (and I guess that series is dead since the
last book was in 2010 and Kendra makes appearances in this
series) and so I had high hopes for the Pet Rescue series.
Linda has not disappointed me yet! This book has two mysteries
that have to be solved…hope I’m not giving anything away there.
They tie together in the end." - @penguincozies,
"This is the 5th book in series but first one I have read. I had
no problem with picking up the story. I think it can stand alone
easy enough. I would like to read the other books in the series
though." -- rhonda1111,
O. Johnston once again thrills readers and pet lover's alike in
her latest book in the Pet Rescue mystery series, Teacup
Turbulence. Johnston is not only giving readers a great whodunit
in this one, but also raising awareness for rescue animals and
the dangers of puppy mills and other situations that are
inhumane. Johnston's protagonist, Lauren Vancouver and the
HotRescues crew are always up for taking on new projects
including some puppy bling in this one. A great addition to the
series!" -- Debbie,
