In Dogs We Trust!

Hot off the press and available now – my new novel In Dogs We Trust.


In this second volume of the Willow Falls mystery series, counterfeit traveler’s checks are creating a stir in Willow Falls, but Louisa McGuire has a more pressing problem: her house has sold and she has nowhere to live. So she agrees to mind a country bed-and-breakfast inn, where her friendly (or are they?) guests pop up in the oddest places. Things go bump in the night…but Louisa knows that In Dogs We Trust!

Renew your acquaintance with Louisa, her antique-shop-owner cousin Kay, and her dogs Emily Ann and Jack. You’ll also meet a new canine friend, Rollo the Cairn terrier…and he knows something that no one else knows!


In Dogs We Trust is available now as a trade paperback from my publisher, Saturday Books. Click here to purchase copies. (Still working on having it available from Amazon – but if you order from the publisher you’ll get a slightly better price!) The paperback is $15; e-books are $2.99 and are available for the Kindle and other e-readers.

There’s also a special price if you buy both books in the series,  Sleeping Dogs Lie and In Dogs We Trust. A wonderful gift for anyone on your list who enjoys a cozy mystery – or who likes to laugh!

Now, I know that the folks who read my blog are a frugal lot (and you know I am!). We’re used to finding our books for fifty cents, or free from the library. But I’d take it mighty kindly if you’d consider buying some copies of my book. And I don’t want you to just take my word for it. Here’s what some readers had to say:

“… It's a real page-turner!  I love all the characters, I feel like I know them personally!  And the dogs are great too!” – Kim Simester

“… I enjoyed this book even more than the first.  The characters are so great.  I just love Louisa, Kay and the gang including the lovely dogs.  What a treat.  I never even suspected that [BLEEP!!] was behind the whole scheme!” – Teresa Raines"

And Sleeping Dogs Lie readers said this:

“…I found myself not wanting to do anything but keep on reading. Her chapter ending cliff hangers, complete with murder and kidnapping, propel you through the book.” –Linda Wight

“Characters who become your friends…Don't get me wrong - the baddies are suitably bad and the plot is thrilling. But it is the sympathetic and very real main characters (dogs and humans) in this book who have stayed in my mind - in some way they have become part of my mental landscape and I rather expect to meet them one day. I certainly intend to 'meet' them in the next installment!” –M. Alison Heal

“This was a "can't put it down once you start" book. The characters are so funny and very real. I loved the dogs and their antics. I am looking forward to Sharon's next book. When I say you will Laugh Out Loud, I mean it!” –Linda MacKean



  1. I am so excited your book is ready for purchase. I so enjoyed Sleeping Dogs Lie. This is going on my Christmas list immediately.

  2. Aw, congrats on your new book! I sadly still haven't read the free copy you gave away last time! I had better get on that! The reviews sound so good. Hope it is a best seller!


I really love your comments. Thanks for coming along on my thrifty adventures!
