Dogcatcher in the Rye

(The first book in the Bought-the-Farm Mystery series)
A novel by

Rescuing this dog nearly killed me. Our new life on a hobby farm might just finish the job.

I’m Ivy Galloway, former big city corporate exec and newbie hobby farmer. If you’d told me a year ago I’d leave a successful career because of a puppy I’d have said you were nuts. But someone had to rescue that brilliant sheepdog, and the unlikely hero turned out to be me.

The stunt nearly got us both killed but I can't complain because the news coverage landed me a hobby farm with lots of quirky livestock back in my hometown. Now, I’m about to launch a quaint country inn and life really couldn’t be sweeter.

At least, until it turns terribly sour. What are the chances of my dog finding a dead body in the rye field days before my grand opening? And how could the chief of police—AKA Chief Hottie, my high school boyfriend—believe I'm responsible for the crime?

Luckily, I’ve got a genius canine on my side. With my HR skills and his sheepdog savvy, we’ll solve the mystery and get the inn launched on time. But when the killer comes after us next... I sure hope we can save each other all over again.

Dogcatcher in the Rye is the first of many Bought-the-Farm Mysteries. Great for fans of clean animal cozy mysteries who love heartwarming hilarity with a hint of homicide. Join newbie hobby farmer Ivy and brilliant sheepdog, Keats, as they wrangle rescue animals and ruthless killers with their crime-solving gang in Clover Grove.
