LET'S GET COZY! OODLES OF POODLES: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

 
GIVEAWAY ENDED
OODLES OF POODLES 
A Pet Rescue Mystery
BY LINDA O. JOHNSTON
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Shelter manager and pet rescuer Lauren Vancouver once again takes on the role of amateur sleuth when there’s a murder on a film set . . .

Has Hollywood gone to the dogs? Pet rescuer Lauren Vancouver is observing production on a new movie called Sheba’s Story. The title character—a white Miniature poodle—is played by many similar-looking poodles, and to make sure no animals are harmed, Lauren’s friend, veterinarian Carlie Stellan, and Grant, a handsome representative from the American Humane Association, are on location. But when the film’s director is killed in a suspicious hit-and-run after arguing with Carlie about animal safety, it’s up to Lauren to clear her friend’s name and catch a killer before someone else ends up in oodles of deadly trouble.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Linda O. Johnston has been interested in writing since childhood. She attended law school but couldn't stay away from fiction and soon published several short stories in Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine. The first, "Different Drummers," won the Robert L. Fish Memorial Award for best first mystery short story of 1988. Recently, Johnston's first mystery short story "Love on Sunset Boulevard" was published in the Sisters of Crime, Los Angeles Chapter, mystery short story anthology, Murder on Sunset Boulevard. Her first novel was the 1995 Love Spell time travel romance A Glimpse of Forever.

Johnston is best known for her romance work but is making her mystery debut in January 2005 with Sit, Stay, Slay. Johnston recently left her full-time law job to devote more time to writing. She is a member of the Orange County, Los Angeles and RWA Mystery-Suspense chapters of the Romance Writers of America. She also belongs to Sisters in Crime, Los Angeles Chapter, and the Mystery Writers of America. Johnston lives in the Los Angeles area with her husband and two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, and enjoys frequent visits of her two young adult sons.
