Who’d have thought mulch could cause such a stink?

Low Country dog walker Andi Grace Scott is happy to score some free mulch from one of her brother’s landscaping jobs — until she discovers the dead body buried beneath the bark.

Worse, her brother’s landscaping tools were used to commit the murder. Once the police arrest her brother and seem happy to have “caught their man,” Andi Grace has no choice but to track down the real killer. She’ll risk everything to prove her brother’s innocence. Even if it means turning over every rock in town.

If you love small-town coastal life, dogs, and strong heroines, you’ll love Dog-Gone Dead.



About the Guest Post

Hi, thanks so much for having me on your blog today.

In A Low Country Dog Walker Mystery series, the main character is dog-walker Andi Grace Scott. People sometimes ask me if the character is based on me. She’s not, but we’re not total opposites either.

Andi Grace and I have a few things in common, but she’s spunkier than I am. We both love our families and would do just about anything we can for them. Sacrificial love is a trait we share.

We both love dogs, and we love to read. I have a Westie, and Andi Grace has a German shepherd. Our daughter-in-law, Bill’s wife, teamed up with our youngest son, Scott, in 2006 and found Westies available for adoption. I have so many allergies, and Westies are hypoallergenic, so it made sense. Amanda and Bill adopted Chloe, and we adopted Heinz. I truly don’t have any allergy problems with Heinz. Andi Grace doesn’t have allergy issues which is good since she’s a dog walker.

I’ve never had to defend a family member who was accused of murder. The closest thing I’ve done was get my passport when Scott did. He was heading to Spain for a semester, and I wanted a passport in case he was kidnapped or hurt. If something had happened to him, I would’ve done everything possible to get him back. Thank goodness he had a great semester, and I didn’t have to go to Europe and cause a commotion.

In Dog-Gone Dead, Andi Grace’s brother is a suspect in the latest murder. She does everything she can to prove her brother is innocent.
