Set in the deceptively sleepy town of Foxglove Corners, this delightful mystery will draw you in and keep you turning the pages! Wonderfully drawn characters, including the not-quite-Terhune-like Collies, keep the suspense flowing to the dramatic conclusion. The Collies romping through A Shortcut Through The Shadows are destined to challenge the Alaskan Malamutes and the Standard Poodles for Best In Show of doggy mysteries.

As usual, Ms. Bodoin's writing is clever and intriguing. This is a book that you can't put down—I'll admit freely that I read it all in one sitting! The characters (Jennet, Winter, Halley, Crane, Lucie, etc.) are as engrossing and witty as ever. Every word of A Shortcut Through The Shadows is a joy to read. Ms. Bodoin is an absolute menace to Saturday afternoons—I can't get a bit of work done with a Bodoin book tempting me to cuddle up on the couch with a cup of coffee and the latest enthralling episode of Jennet and her adorable dogs. If you're a Foxglove Corners fan or just considering visiting the town, you'll find A Shortcut Through The Shadows impossible to put down. Good work, Ms. Bodoin—I look forward to Jennet's further adventures.
Not usually a mystery reader, I found myself so drawn in I could not put the book down until I reached the final page. This book is a find for mystery readers and an adventure for the rest of us.
