Reviews

"As excellent as Johnston's debut novel (SIT, STAY, SLAY, 1/05), NOTHING TO FEAR BUT FERRETS is a fantastic escape into the mind of a woman who wants to do the right thing, loves animals and continues to become embroiled in crazy situations. Kendra is a likable protagonist, and the descriptions of the animals being pet-sat contributes to the integrity of the work. This is the perfect book to read in the blazing sun by a pool or in the chill of the air- conditioner with an animal on your lap." -- Vicky Gilpin, FreshFiction.com

"Linda O. Johnston has a definite talent for infusing humor in just the right places in the storyline so that readers will find themselves chuckling out loud after a particularly tense scene is followed by a funny one. The heroine is a stubborn pet lover who plans to incorporate being a pet advocate into her practice if she passes the tests. Pet lovers and amateur sleuth fans will find this series deserving of an award as well as a place on the bestseller lists." -- Harriet Klausner

"I really enjoy this series. Kendra is such a fun character. Her pet sitting adds so much to the enjoyment of this series. Plus her relationship with Jeff and police detective Ned Noralles make for a fun read.  This cozy is a fun, easy read. I always find myself coming to the end of the book before I realize it since I just want to keep reading! I highly recommend this book and the whole series. Can't wait to read Fine-Feathered Death, the next in the series. Armchair Interviews agrees." -- Dawn Dowdle, Armchair Interviews
