By Dorothy Bodoin
Spring brings danger to the collies of Foxglove Corners when poisoned meat begins to appear in their yards. Another collie is threatened with dire consequences unless her owner withdraws her from all future shows. In the meantime, a ghost moves into the wildflower field planted at the site of the burned down Victorian house on Huron Court.
What They Are Saying About All the Pretty Little Collies
All the Pretty Little Collies is the twenty-eighth installment in Dorothy Bodoin’s Foxglove Corners Mystery Series. Filled with surprises, twists, and turns, it is another winner that will keep you riveted until the last page.
The book begins with Jennet Ferguson, an amateur sleuth/teacher, visiting a friend’s horse ranch to take her turn caring for her friend’s collies. The dogs discover a slab of raw meat tossed into the grass. Alarmed, Jennet manages to grab the meat before the dogs touch it. Worried, she has it tested by her deputy sheriff husband and discovers that it’s been poisoned. Who could be trying to kill dogs in Foxglove Corners?
Heightening the suspense, Jennet learns that her friend, Annica, has seen a ghost, a young girl picking wildflowers on the site where a pink Victorian house once stood. Intrigued, she investigates the phenomenon.
As if that isn’t enough to keep Jennet busy, she learns that Minta Maynard, owner of a prize-winning blue merle show dog named Sparkle, is receiving threatening messages in her mailbox. If Minta continues to show Sparkle, the collie will be harmed.
Readers will be perched on the edge of their chairs wondering how these storylines will be resolved. I highly recommend this new addition to the Foxglove Corners Mystery Series.
It is exciting to note that the collie on the cover of this new book is the author’s own blue merle collie, Fantasy’s Bell Bottom Blue—Layla.
