CR - The Scent of Murder, Felicity Young

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Third book in the extremely excellent Dr Dody McCleland series which combines strong plots, good characters, a touch of romantic attraction and a good strong dose of the reality of life for women in the Suffragette era.

From the Blurb:

'If a black dog appears along the old corpse way, the route a funeral procession takes to the churchyard, it is thought to be escorting the dead soul to the afterlife. A black dog sighting without a funeral procession, however, is supposed to foreshadow death.'

2012 - Top Books

Anybody who knows me will be aware that I'm mathematically challenged. Besides, I hate giving numbers of stars as reviews and Top 5's or 10's or whatever numbers give me heartburn, so instead, I wanted to just re-mention some of the books that made my reading 2012. I was rather pleased to have hit the 120 that I set myself as a goal on Goodreads (in fact if I was up to date with reviews) I reckon that number will end up much closer to 140, which is not a bad effort given that it was a hellishly busy year all round. But enough waffle.
