Mystery of the Month: The Silver Sleigh

Lost and found.

A white rescue collie named Sparkle escapes during an unscheduled stop at the deserted River Rose Collie Kennels, former home of the missing Rosalyn Everett...

A blue merle collie appears alongside the house which is strange as all of the River Rose collies were supposed to have been rescued and in new homes...

And during another unscheduled stop, Jennet buys an antique silver sleigh, little dreaming that she has stepped into a dangerous new mystery that may well be her last.

  1. Your novel sounds intriguing, Dorothy. And I love that your collie is the inspiration for your novels.

    1. Kinder is a never-ending source of inspiration for me. Just yesterday she howled 3 times at the fire siren. I've never heard such a bone-chilling sound. I can use that in a book."

  2. I've read all of your books and find a surprise in each one. You occasionally add just enough of the paranormal to keep this reader on her toes. Can't wait to read the new novel! I also love that your collie is so inspirational.

  3. Love the collie on that cover--wish I could handle to responsibility of being a dog owner. Will go put your book on my TBR! It sounds great.

    1. Thank you for reading, Anna. Owning a dog is a great responsibility. I haven't always lived up to it, but I've tried. Dorothy

  4. Dorothy is having an issue with leaving replies, so I'm posting them for her.
