A Dog With Two Tales
Meet Ivy, soon-to-be hobby farmer, as she solves her first crime with help from a brilliant border collie in this short prequel to the Bought-the-Farm Mystery series.
Rescuing a neglected pup could bring her a whole new life… if it doesn’t kill her first.
Ivy Galloway doesn’t know how desperate she is to escape the big city and her human resources job until she meets a border collie pup in need of rescue, too. Over the past 10 years, Ivy has had to downsize so many people that her boss nicknamed her “the grim reaper.” It's time to leave all that behind and go home to the rolling hills of bucolic Clover Grove.
But first, she’s determined to do whatever it takes to save the neglected pup she calls “Keats.” Enlisting her best friend Jilly Blackwood, she confronts the dog’s deadbeat owner with logic, humor and professional courtesy. When her best HR skills fall flat, conservative Ivy starts breaking the rules. The clever border collie digs in to help by unearthing a chilling clue that could put his owner away for good.
Can Ivy, Jilly and Keats evade a genuine grim reaper long enough to gain a new leash on life in the country?
This short prequel to the Bought-the-Farm Mystery Series is a perfect page-turner for lovers of dogs, mystery and funny, spunky aspiring sleuths.
