Lauren Vancouver is the head of HotRescues, a no-kill animal shelter north of Los Angeles, but it's often human nature that puts her in the path of danger. Just like when she helps rescue four adorable beagle puppies that were dumped down a drainpipe at a nasty puppy mill. One of the mill's employees has a history of dog abuse-and a bone to pick with Lauren. And when he's found dead at HotRescues after threatening her, Lauren will have to sniff out the real killer to keep herself out of a cage...

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 10, 2011 – Animals play a passive role in Johnston's less than engaging first in a new series featuring Lauren Vancouver, who runs HotRescues, a private no-kill animal shelter in Granada Hills, Calif. After raiding a puppy mill, Lauren is certain that Efram Kiley, an animal care apprentice who'd abused his own dog and was working for her as part of a legal agreement, tossed beagle puppies down a drainpipe. When Efram is later found stabbed to death at Lauren's shelter, she briefly becomes a suspect, but she quickly transitions into a skillful investigator helping skeptical LAPD Det. Stefan Garciana and love interest Capt. Matt Kingston of Animal Services. Insights into the plight of homeless animals make this an informative, if sometimes too fervent, spinoff from the author's Pet-Sitter series featuring lawyer Kendra Ballantyne (Feline Fatale, etc.).
