Bite the Biscuit A Barkery and Biscuits Mystery by Linda O. Johnston

Carrie works as a vet tech and has now opened a new business, too.  It's actually a combo of two new shops.  One sells pastries and the other sells healthy dog biscuits, muffins and other treats.  She can create a treat that will help your doggie's digestion and more.  She didn't expect to have a big fight with the other pet store owner on the day of her grand opening!

Midnight Ink and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published May 8th.  

When the lady who yelled at her is found dead the next day, Carrie becomes the number one suspect.  The fact that she was home with her brother and wasn't guilty doesn't seem to impress the cops.  After all, they found half a dog biscuit with her trademark on it at the site of the murder and the lady had a leash around her neck.

She tries to focus on her work and forget about the investigation but no one seems to be doing anything but focusing on her.  She's going to have to do some investigating on her own.  That doesn't seem to work very well.  She just gets more confused.

She's also a bit confused about her love life.  She has an out-of-town sales person for a big pet food company sniffing about with talk of buying her recipes.   She's not sure she wants to sell them, but he is good looking and flirts easily.  On the other hand, she has a handsome vet who actually asks her out on a date.  He's fun to be around and understands her life.  But when he accuses of her of dropping off human food for the dogs that had chocolate chips in it (fatal to dogs), she's not sure what to think of him.

I was surprised by the murderer.  There were a lot of people who didn't like Myra.  The killer was just trying to protect themselves.  But murder is still murder and if you can do that, you're not a very nice person.

See if you can figure out who the killer was and let me know if you thought it was obvious.  Obviously, it wasn't obvious to me...
