The Dog Sit Affair
by Seán Kelly
About the Book
Looking to escape her personal grief for a while, Haley could never have envisioned the type of adventure and danger that would cross her path when she took on the role of "dog-sitter."
A young Haley was widowed in 2011 when her husband James, a senior civil servant, died in a helicopter crash while working in northern Russia. Russian sources confirmed all five on this flight died, including ‘Conrad-Kremlin,’ the organiser of this trip.
Doing her best to get on with her life in the UK following the disaster and taking a part-time job at an antiques shop in town, Haley never imagined the turn of events that would follow.
Little did she know that a call for help from her Dublin based sister would set about a chain of events that thrust ‘dog sitter’ Haley and her loved ones in danger but also see her step into a role she could never have imagined for herself.
Her training and awareness of security measures from being the wife of a top official would see her embroiled in a diamond heist, dangerous criminals, gangland feuds and a visit from her past that chilled her to the core.
This is an impressive first novel with a good plot that keeps you guessing until the last page.
It’s a light, easy read that will also make you smile.
