A sheepdog in training. A flock under threat. Can he find a killer before the case unravels?
Beau dreams of being a champion sheepdog just like his aunt. With the help of new livestock friends and a kind-hearted farmer, he vows to lead the herd proudly through the lush valleys of South Wales. But when one of the sheep goes missing, Beau never expected a woolly crime scene…
While his aunt warns him not to get too friendly with the flock, his connection with the sheep gets him both respect and a target on his back. As the brave pup frantically sniffs for clues, he’s got one chance to solve the mystery before the farm starts counting sheep for all the wrong reasons.
Will Beau learn the ropes in time to protect his friends from a flock fatality?

Sarah Jane Weldon is a British cozy mystery author. On an average day you’ll find her working on the set of a new film or television series, ice swimming in a remote location, or sat in her favourite fire-side chair plotting a character’s demise.
Sarah isn’t a fan of her middle name ‘Jane’ (she prefers to be called Sarah) but readers were getting her mixed up with another person who wrote hot and steamy books, so she decided to add ‘Jane’ to help readers find her.
Outside of her writing, Sarah is a lover of cats, and even her Italian Greyhound is more cat-like than your average dog.
Sarah is passionate about children’s literacy and regularly works with schools through Skype in the Classroom, School Speakers, as a STEM Ambassador, and through the UK registered environmental and STEM education charity ‘Oceans Project’ which she founded with a small group of IDP children whilst working for the Ministry of Education and Science in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia. In 2014 Microsoft Education named Sarah as a ‘woman changing the world through technology’ for International Women’s Day for her work with schools worldwide.
A large percentage of Sarah’s book royalties directly supports Oceans Project’s work with disadvantaged young people, sending them on Earthwatch expeditions worldwide where they get to work one on one with sharks, coral reefs, and in the rainforest carrying out citizen science projects with leading experts in the field.
UK readers can support Oceans Project by shopping on Amazon Smile.
Sarah’s love for the water was recently filmed for a Channel 4 documentary series looking at her DNA and family history: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nia9uY8iD1k&t=1s
