Mystery at the Marsh
When mystery writer, Victoria “Vicky” Cooper moves to a sleepy little town in coastal Georgia with her three Welsh Pembroke Corgis, their number is soon increased to four by the arrival of a small black Corgi puppy.
But a few months later, the normal peace and quiet for both humans and dogs is shattered when Vicky’s farmer neighbor is murdered.
The local sheriff, Jake Robbins, soon suspects that one, if not all of the dogs, were witness to the crime, and when his investigation stalls, he asks for their help.
At first, Vicky is reluctant to allow the dogs to get involved, but when Jake assures her that nothing bad will happen, she finally agrees.
Highly intelligent and adventurous, and despite some stern warnings, the Corgis also begin investigating on their own. And typically, they get into a lot of trouble in their quest to bring the bad guys to justice.
When they make headlines in the local newspaper, and a TV station film crew arrives in town, matters take a definite turn for the worse. Now a target, and after several narrow escapes, a kidnapping, and help from an unexpected source, the Corgis eventually get the bad guys cornered, with a surprising result.
In this first book in the series of Carolyn Eastwood’s Corgi mysteries, readers will meet Skipper, the leader of the Corgi siblings, Duke, his older half-brother, Duke’s younger sister Misty and their baby niece Tango.
The Red Fox of Cobbs Creek (coming in 2014)
The marsh, surrounding the sleepy little coastal town of Cobbs Creek, Georgia, is home to a red fox. But one dark night, he comes face to face with Tango, the youngest of the Welsh Pembroke Corgi siblings. Not one to pass up an opportunity, Tango immediately gives chase, and the fox’s nightly hunt is quickly forgotten. Trying to get Tango off his trail, the fox heads to town, hoping to disappear amongst the houses. With Tango=s big brother, Skipper, in hot pursuit, they unexpectedly stumble upon a burglary in progress.
When Sheriff Jake Robbins begins to investigate, he realizes that Skipper probably knows the burglars, and asks Skipper’s owner, mystery writer, Vicky Cooper, if Skipper can help.
On a stakeout, after the same house has been robbed three times, Jake is attacked, and Skipper fights back. The Cleaver brothers are now at top of Jake’s list of suspects, and as Jake begins to gather evidence, a rich investor from Philadelphia arrives in town. On the night he hosts at dinner party for all the local dignitaries, yet another house is robbed. As Jake maintains that Cobbs Creek has the lowest crime rate of anywhere in the country, he slowly begins to connect the dots.
Then, during a fierce tropical storm, the local high school math teacher disappears, and all four Corgis, along with their friend, Benny, go missing. A frantic search by Vicky, and Benny’s owner, Patty, eventually lead them to the local marina, where Jake and his two deputies arrive, just in the nick of time.
In this second book of Carolyn Eastwood’s Corgi mysteries, the reader will again meet Skipper, the leader of the siblings, Duke, his older half brother, Misty, Duke’s younger sister, and their little niece Tango, along with their friend Benny, the Rottweiler.
