the fright of the iguana
Los Angeles attorney and part-time pet-sitter Kendra Ballantyne has a lot more time to tend to animals now that she’s determined to stay out of the perfectly toned arms of superhunky investigator Jeff Hubbard.  But all too soon, her time is tied up chasing a truly nasty pet-napper.

Kendra’s nightmare starts when she makes an early stop at the home of an überwealthy film producer to check on his beloved pup and iguana--only to find them missing and a ransom note on the iguana’s cage.  Through her Southern California pet-sitting club, she learns that other four-legged clients have been snatched, too.  Then a fellow pet-sitter turns up bludgeoned to death.  Kendra has her suspicions, but it soon appears she’s barking up the wrong tree.  And it becomes clear that she’ll need nine lives to escape this cold-blooded killer who’s friend to neither man nor beast . .
Read A Review:

Kendra Ballantyne, Los Angeles attorney and part-time pet sitter, is horrified to find two pets in her care missing and a ransom note in their place. The missing pets are a wealthy film producer's beloved pup and iguana. Soon she discovers that other pets have been snatched when under the care of her fellow Southern California pet-sitting club pet sitters.

The police aren't very interested in finding missing pets. After a fellow pet sitter is found murdered, Kendra knows she must get to the bottom of things.

In the meantime she's trying to decide between her hunky investigator boyfriend and her new beau, a wonderful vet.

Can she juggle two men, find the missing pets, and unmask the killer without putting herself in any danger?

I really like this series. Kendra is a wonderful character. I like the pet sitting theme as well. I was happy to see that she makes a decision between the men in her life; I just hope that it will hold!

I always enjoy the pet-sitting antics in this series. The author has done a great job of making the reader care about the animals. Plus their personalities really shine through.

The Southern California is enjoyable as well. I highly recommend this book and series.
