The body was found in the early morning, face down in the murky waters of the marsh. There was no question that he had drowned. The question was did he have help? And if he did, who, among the many, irate people upon whose toes he had trod, had helped to send him on his way? The only witnesses have frog legs and they have nothing to say on the matter.
It is summer and the weather is hot but politics in Dunbarton are even hotter. At the centre of the debate is the future of a few acres of wetland, home to mosquitoes, cat-tails and frogs. Life hasn’t been the same in the normally peaceful lakeside town following a proposal to sell the local inn to a developer who plans to turn it into a world-class golf resort. The news is greeted with enthusiasm by local residents until it is learned that part of the plan involves the filling in of a large, environmentally sensitive marsh. Battle lines are drawn and, as the heat rises, so do tempers in the small town.
Chris and Alicia Mallory find themselves on opposing sides of the controversy but put aside their differences when one of the protestors is found floating in the marsh. Before long, they are on the trail of a killer and the water hazard has never been deadlier.

I live in a nineteenth century cottage in Ontario, Canada. My passion, besides writing of course, is horses and the sport of Dressage. I have owned three horses in my life. Two are now gone. The third, Devon, is a Canadian Sport Horse/Arab cross. Dogs, specifically Jack Russell Terriers, have played a big part in my life. My current JRT is Jamie, a rambunctious bundle of energy.
I write cozy mysteries. CATNIP and HORSE SENSE are the first books in the Dunbarton Mysteries series.
