HOWL DEADLY features L.A. lawyer/pet-sitter Kendra Ballantyne. This is the 8th title in the series.

During a weekend getaway in the San Bernadino Mountains, at a wildlife sanctuary, a caretaker is found dead in a cage. A female wolf has escaped, leaving behind her three young pups. Kendra is determined to locate the missing wolf and the killer.

Fans of the series will no doubt enjoy the author’s blend of mystery, humor, love of animals and romance. As a reader new to the series, I wasn’t as fascinated by Dante DeFrancisco (the romantic interest) as I should have been. Perhaps if I had started reading the series from the beginning...

Still, the writing and storyline held my interest, for the most part, and I wouldn’t hesitate to read another entry in the series.

Other titles in the series include:
SIT, STAY, SLAY
NOTHING TO FEAR BUT FERRETS
FINE-FEATHERED DEATH
MEOW IS FOR MURDER
THE FRIGHT OF THE IGUANA
DOUBLE DOG DARE
NEVER SAY STY
