    A lawyer gets her licence suspended for something she didn't do. Now she gets talked into pet sitting and she discovers that she loves it. Kendra wasn't thrilled about the snake but hey who would be even with the extra pay. But things start happening to her clients of which she is innocent but someone is framing her as with her law job. Now she has to investigate as she doesn't trust the police as they have blinders on.

    An excellent opening to a new cozy mystery series!! And it has dogs!! And a snake. I really enjoyed this. A good mystery and a good dash of romantic suspense. Plus the final reveal came out of left field - at least for me!

    Not bad. I though Kendra was okay as a character, and I liked Jeff. I got really annoyed with how the the antagonistic police detective was written - I can't believe he would really have been that fixated. Not bad.

    Good start to the series. I enjoyed this book and think the series has some potential. I liked Kendra and all the different dogs were cute. The mystery kept me guessing until the end. I'll read more because I want to see what direction Kendra decides to go in now. Good start to the series. I enjoyed this book and think the series has some potential.

    I very much enjoyed this cozy mystery starting a recently suspended lawyer forced to make ends meet by pet sitting. I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 simple because I got annoyed by the sleuth's constant yearning for the male client/PI she's housesitting for. There wasn't anything graphic, sex wise. Just thought too much energy in the book was spent angsting for it. I very much enjoyed this cozy mystery starting a recently suspended lawyer forced to make ends meet by pet sitting.

I put it in my purse and read it occasionally but never really got the urge to pull it out and finish it. The pet sitting was an interesting concept, but I never really connected with Kendra. I was surprised that Susan, her secretary, was the one behind all of her troubles; from leaking the strategy to the murders to the stolen car. That was a good surprise.

    Kendra is smart and a quick thinker but keeps finding herself in trouble. What's a girl to do? In Kendra's case, it is figure it out herself!

Dogs, cats, rabbits and even a ball python are among her client list these days. This light reading was fun and entertaining like her other pet cozy series, A Barkery and Biscuits Mystery.

    While the plot line had me guessing as to who was framing Kendra and I would have never guess who did it. At times though I felt the books was a little hard to read. Its probably just me because I like to read books where the words don't make you ponder exactly what they mean. I felt the author was trying a little too hard to be very intelligent with her words rather than just simplifying it and letting the story speak for itself. With that said, I did enjoy the story line and will probably read While the plot line had me guessing as to who was framing Kendra and I would have never guess who did it.

    Although I enjoy discovering new cozy mystery series with a dog theme, for some reason (that I can’t put my finger on) this struck me as a somewhat different story. Regardless, I enjoyed the difference, and while I came close to figuring it out “who done it”, it wasn’t until maybe a chapter before the reveal that I actually did! In addition to adoring the dogs, puppies, and cats, this book even made me like a certain reptile! Looking forward to reading book two (etc).

    I know many of the reviews are not too positive, but I personally really liked this book. It was easy to read, quick paced, fully o funny stories about animals. Maybe I would prefer less sex and more romance, as this was a little bit unusual for a cozy. But all in all I liked it and look forward to read another from the series.

    Well written and fun, a good light read. Compaints--The use of a python in one's pocket to startle the bad guy, was set up a bit too thoroughly but then unconvincing at the denouement. And Kendra went over old ground a bit too much for my taste. Still a charming first book in a series. Well written and fun, a good light read.

Kendra claims she was framed for leaking private client information. To make it even worse, the client in question was killed due to the information leak. Kendra is forced to sell nearly all her possessions (save a BMW, every girl needs her BMW to survive) and rent her beautiful Hollywood home to a former reality tv star and boy toy. To add insult to injury, Kendra now lives above the garage with her Cavalier King Charles, Lexie, watching the parties of the rich and famous-for-no-good-reason. Things perk up when Lexie's former boarding facility (headed by a friend of Kendra's) is in dire need of a pet sitter. Kendra volunteers reluctantly, only to meet the (conveniently) handsome private eye, Jeff, whose Akita instantly loves Lexie. As more pet sitting jobs come rolling in Kendra begins to feel that her life is finally perking up a bit. Then, life turns out to be more of a bitch than Lexie. (view spoiler)[Kendra finds two different pet sitting clients (both of whom are former law clients of Kendra's) stabbed to death in their homes. With no real suspects, the police center on Kendra as a "person of interest". Adding flame to the fire, the head of the investigation happens to have a vendetta against Mr. Sexy Jeff (with whom Kendra is now trading pet sitting favors with to prove her innocence). Each chapter brings up new suspects and new problems as Kendra is further implicated in pretty much every crime in the area. (hide spoiler)] The author does a good job making anything Kendra does backfire pretty miraculously. While there are some parts I felt were not entirely realistic (how much access she had to her old job for one), I wasn't bothered enough to notice until after my reading. The ending will be a surprise twist for most simply because there is a crucial fact that the reader is not told until the end. However, the criminal is actually mentioned in the book more than once and is a reasonable candidate (view spoiler)[(in a crazy, conspiracy theory way) (hide spoiler)] . This is not a novel that will change the way you think, but it will amuse you. Parents: There is sex implied in this book. I would call it a "lime", meaning that sex is mentioned and then the bedroom door closes. There is definitely seductive mentions of how handsome so and so's chest hair is, but it's pretty PG13.

    Cozies depend on their sleuths, so when I hate the sleuth, I'm going to hate the cozy. And I hate the sleuth. The writing isn't bad and the plot was okay. The protagonist was painful.

In danger of losing her upscale Los Angeles home, she is forced to rent to a former reality show alumnus contestant. Kendra moves into the maid’s quarters. The owner of Doggy Indulgence Pet Resort frequented by Lexie, her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, recommends her for a job with his animal owning clients. In need of money and to keep from watching her new renters trash her home, Kendra agrees to a live-in pet-sitting gig. At least she can make some money while she rethinks what happened to her career, and she can take Lexie can keep her company. Her first position is for sexy detective Jim Hubbard. She can take care of other animals while she house-sits his Akita. Her next job is a former law client. He returns home sooner than expected and when Kendra arrives to feed his black mutt, she finds him murdered. Shortly afterwards another of her clients is killed. Since Kendra is the only suspect the investigating detective has, she finds herself doing some sleuthing herself – with the help of the sexy detective. I’m an animal lover and I enjoy finding a new series with pets playing a major or even small role in the plots. So far, Kendra Ballentyne hasn’t won me over, but I’ll probably give her a second chance by reading the next book in the series.

    I'd really like to go 2.5 stars here, but am rounding down this time. The premise is cute, as are the animals, but the actual mystery--let alone the police procedural part--felt oversimplified to this reader, esp. Noralles' too two-dimensional nature. Also, so only Kendra is capable of proving her own innocence? Really? Yet she consistently inserts herself in situations where it could only be read as a conflict of interest and/or entirely self-serving.

In an altogether different vein, why are Kendra's cat clients only mentioned in passing? Just sayin'. And finally, if Hubbards' "geeks" (geez, that got old the first time it appeared) are so darn good at research, they why didn't they make the crucial link back to Kendra's first big win? (Can't say more without spoiling the fun.) All told, the series has potential, but the mystery part needs to vastly improve or it'll be grossly overshadowed by cute animals and a somewhat neurotic/emotionally inconsistent protagonist.

I found Kendra a great sleuth, who was very determined to clear her name. Her interactions with sexy PI, Jeff, had my toes curling and left me wanting more. A good, strong mystery, with a nice romance angle. I will definitely be back for more.

    I much prefer the Blaize Clement series of pet sitter mysteries over this one. While waiting for the next ebook to become available from the library, I gave this one a try. I haven't finished it yet, so apologies if it turns a corner and gets awesome, but so far I don't like the whole attitude of the book — the main character falls into pet sitting reluctantly, doesn't much like cats, is a woe-is-me snob from a rich background who's fallen on hard times … I'm finding it really hard to be sympath I much prefer the Blaize Clement series of pet sitter mysteries over this one.

Maybe it's just because I'm a former cat sitter, but the first two characteristics really rubbed me the wrong way. A lot of people who'd read a pet sitter mystery are going to be fans of cats and of pet sitting, so why portray them as less-than? Someone can let me know if I should bother to keep reading, but for now I'll just chalk it up to not my style.

    I usually love cozies. I didn't love this one. It was boring. I actually fell asleep a couple of times while reading. (Which I almost NEVER do!) I was frusterated with the story and just wished that I knew who did it already! I didn't enjoy the ride. What little it told about the police investigation led me to believe that there was none and that Kendra had to do her own investigating for there to be any at all.
