Default Can anyone name this book/series? (female, crime)

This is going to be rubbish so apologies in advance.

Its probably going to be crime/mystery type as thats mainly what I read. The main character is a female. She runs with 1 or 2 dogs. I think one is called Pippa or something. The dogs belong to her neighbour/landlord.

I thought it was Sue Grafton - Kinsey Millhoune but i'm at S and the dogs haven't arrived.

Any idea? TIA

Dogs named Rowdy and Kimi by any chance? Maybe it is a Susan Conant book?

Nope, thanks for trying though.

The dogs are totally incidental to the plots.

This sounds familiar. Women author--three names. In other words, it isn't like a Sue Grafton (two names) but more like a James Lee Burke (three names). See what I mean?

Eh, no, I was wrong. That one writes about cats, not dogs.

Could it be author Gerald Hammond? There is a dog named Pippa in his books.

I had a hunch (haven't read these books for over 15 years) and I found your answer: The V.I. Warshawski books by Sara Paretsky.

Interview with Sara Paretsky, the Creator of the V I Warshawski series
