Blood Red, White and Blue: A Canine Cozy Mystery by Kathleen Delaney

Mary and her cocker, Millie, had met the man who was killed during the fireworks show.  He had a German Shepard named Ranger and he was a nice man.  But someone must have felt threatened by him...

Severn House and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published July 1st.

The more Mary learns about the man, the more puzzled she is.  He was a cop who specialized in jewel robberies.  She knows he was looking at a necklace in the local shop.  Were the gems in it stolen?  And why kill him?  He hadn't caught them yet.  He must have been getting too close.  Who's going to take in Ranger?

There are police on the case but Mary is doing better at gathering facts than they are.  After all, she's lived here a long time and knows a lot of people.  She also knows how to ask the right questions.  That's dangerous in this case...

When the jewelry store owner is killed in his office, it's apparent this is bigger than just a stalled investigation.

Mary keeps sticking puzzle pieces together and that leads her to the murderer.  But can she confront them and come out alive?
