A new book review for dog lovers!

Dorothy Bodoin is one of my favorite authors, as she writes mysteries that always involve a collie or two, and sometimes many more.  In her newest book, The Deadly Fields of Autumn, we return to Foxglove Corners and to the lives of Jennet Ferguson and her collies.  Jennet, a school teacher and member of collie rescue, is always stumbling upon some new mystery to solve.  And with the help of her friends and collies, Jennet always takes us on a new adventure.

In this newest book in the series, Jennet begins a new program in her rescue, where she places older collies with seniors looking for a companion.  Sounds innocent enough, but right after placing a collie with a woman named Charlotte, both the collie and woman disappear!  Before long Jennet is trying to track down the missing pair, solve a hit and run, and avoid a strange man who seems to have a case of road rage!  Want to know what happens?  You'll have to read the book yourself, to discover the answers.

The Deadly Fields of Autumn is the 25th book in Dorothy Bodoin's Foxglove Corners series.  Each book contains a different mystery, and can be read as a stand alone book, but they are best read in order as they are part of a continuing story.  These books are available in paperback or as a Kindle book.  If you enjoy fiction that features lovable dogs and mysteries, you should give these books a try.  Even though the books are occasionally spooky, I always end up laughing, as Jennet's collies remind me so much of my own collies.  I even have a favorite, the naughty Candy, and if you do read these books, I'd love to hear which of Jennet's collies is your favorite as well!
