One of my favorite cozy series is Pet Sitters series by Linda O. Johnston.  Probably because I love dogs (have 2 myself) and I like reading where pets are always involved in the storyline.  Well Linda created a new series based off a character that made an appearance in Howl Deadly, Lauren.  Lauren runs a no-kill shelter…something I wish all shelters were but realize that it can’t always be that way.  This series is called the Pet Rescue series.

Anyway, if you visit Dollycas Thoughts you will have a chance to win 1 of 2 copies of The More the Terrier which is the 2nd book in this new series.  I’m entering…..and hope I win this new book!

Today I’m reading Mind over Murderby Allison Kinglsey which is the pseudonym for Kate Kingsbury or Doreen Roberts Hight.  She even writes under the name Rebecca Kent.  Whew, talk about your multiple personalities!

Cousins and best friends, Clara and Stephanie Quinn run The Raven’s Nest Bookstore, where people go to find their most coveted reads. But they have no idea it’s the psychically-gifted Clara who’s reading them…

The bookstore has made an enemy of the town crier, Ana Jordon, who claims that the store’s occult collection is “poisoning” the town’s youth. Meanwhile, the store’s number-one employee, Molly, has made no secret of her anger over Ana’s antics. So when Ana is found dead, killed by the bust of Edgar Allen Poe sculpted by Molly, the evidence is stacked against her. And Clara must rely on her gift to make sense of this senseless murder…

So the teaser comes from page 161

Her first thought was that she was about to die. Hot on the heels of that thought came the determined vow to live, no matter what it took.

ooooh, I’m not this far yet but boy that has me intrigued about the book!  I am about half way through and it is pretty good and while there is the “Quinn Sense” it isn’t an overt psychic ability and Clara has shut out the voices for awhile so it is taking her awhile to get used to them again.

Can’t wait to see how this turns out!
