Teacup Turbulence by Linda O. Johnston – Book Review

Teacup Turbulence by Linda O. Johnston – Book Review

Teacup Turbulence by Linda O. Johnston is part of the Pet Rescue mystery series. This was such a fun cozy for me to read! Even though it is the first book in the series that I’ve read, I felt like Linda did a nice job of explaining the characters and back stories. It was easy for me to immerse myself in the story. I really loved Lauren’s character! She is caring and smart, plus an awesome animal advocate.

Teacup Turbulence by Linda O. Johnston is a great cozy. The characters are enjoyable and the plot really held my attention throughout the book. It was a great ‘whodunit’ and I found myself wanting to …
