Karen Chisholm

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.'
