Kendra Ballantyne has her hands full again in Never Say Sty. This time it is
working her day job as an attorney, her part-time job as a pet sitter, and being one of
the developers of a new reality show, Animal Auditions. Of course, the murder of one of
the judges does not help lighten her load. Some of the suspects hit close to home. Kendra
is forced to investigate a possible new beau and her long time friend when the police do
not seem to be doing their fair share of detective work. Kendra hopes that she is able
to solve the murder mystery before another judge is murdered.
Ms. Johnston continues to make Kendra Ballantyne a likeable character with a sense of
humor and with the wits about her to not get overwhelmed with everything going on.
Whether she's trying to figure out who her close friend is now dating or to solve a murder
mystery where a beau is one of the suspects, Kendra keeps her head on tight.
The scenes with the animals in training for the reality show are funny and realistic.
It is perfect in today’s world of American Idol, Survivor, and The
Amazing Race. Never Say Sty is well thought out and an enjoyable read.
