Coffee with a canine: Carola Dunn & Trillian

The current featured duo at Coffee with a Canine: Carola Dunn and Trillian.

Carola Dunn is the author of two mystery series, the Daisy Dalrymple mysteries, set in England in the 1920s, and the Cornish Mysteries, set in the 1960s.

--Publishers Weekly

"Returning from a successful business trip to London, artist Nick Gresham finds his paintings have been destroyed in his studio. When the culprit is murdered, Nick is the prime suspect, and amateur sleuth Eleanor Trewynn swings into action. [A Colourful Death] Dunn's second cozy set in 1960s Cornwall (after "Manna from Hades") is a delightful romp, full of busybodies, unscrupulous artists, and a charming Westie with character."
