Pedigreed Bloodlines - A Leigh Dennison Mystery

Author Sandra Robbins

Publisher: Barbour - Heartsong Presents Mysteries
ISBN-10: 1597896020 ISBN-13: 978-1597896023

Genre: Inspirational/Mystery

When Leigh Dennison’s dear friend and champion show-dog breeder, Addie Jordan, is killed, Leigh goes on the hunt to sniff out the murderer. If only she could devote more time to her sleuthing. But Leigh, who has never been a dog lover, now finds herself as the owner of Addie’s kennel, which houses a puppy with a bright future in the show ring.

Leigh must overcome one obstacle after another as she sets out to succeed with the kennel and find the person who killed the woman she loved like a mother. At the top of her suspect list: a homeless Vietnam veteran, a young Cherokee high school dropout, the owner of a rival kennel…and the man with whom Leigh is falling in love.

As clues unfold to the killer’s identity, she makes another surprising discovery…there’s a reason dogs are known as man’s best friend.

This was a very enjoyable book with lots of twists and turns…and, of course, a surprise twist at the end that I wasn’t expecting, but one that made the book very memorable for me.

If you like spiritual, (light/family friendly) books, and enjoyed Nancy Drew as a young girl, you will thoroughly enjoy Pedigreed Bloodlines.
