THE MORE THE TERRIER is the second book in the "Pet Rescue" mystery series written by Johnston. The author also writes the Kendra Ballantyne, Pet-Sitter series.

Lauren Vancouver is a shelter manager who is shocked to discover that her mentor, Mamie Spelling, is an animal hoarder. Lauren wants to help the woman and the hoarded critters. When Mamie is accused of killing the CEO of a pet shelter network, she needs Lauren's help even uncover and expose the real killer.

The author does an above average job of weaving a murder mystery that most cozy readers, especially animal lovers, will enjoy. For me, the mystery takes a back seat to the animals, however. I wouldn't care if no one was murdered as long as the author wove a story around animal rescues. Ms. Johnston's storytelling skills are outstanding. And even though I like her pet-sitting series, I like her pet rescue series even more.
