Product description

Product Description

Marcia (pronounced Mar-see-a, not Marsha) likes to think of herself as a normal person, even though she has a rather abnormal vocation. She trains service dogs for combat veterans with PTSD. Then the former Marine owner of her first trainee is accused of murdering his wife, and Marcia gets sucked into an even more abnormal avocation–amateur sleuth.

Called in to dog-sit the Labrador service dog, Buddy, she’s outraged that his veteran owner is being presumed guilty until proven innocent. With Buddy’s help, she tries to uncover the real killer. Even after the hunky local sheriff politely tells her to butt out, Marcia keeps poking around. Until the killer finally pokes back.

5.0 out of 5 stars This "Older Dog" does not need "new tricks" 1 June 2016
By B. Lanford - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a dog-person so I enjoy most all of the "dog books". I don't read a lot of heavy books that take a lot of concentration (I am 87 yrs. young and so have given up anything that takes a lot of thinking!!! My children bring me "those books" because they think I need stimulating reading. Ha!!
I think very young people and "older" folks would enjoy these "Dog Books".

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy read 18 July 2016
By J. McGinnis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I'm a sucker for novels with a dog character, but I have been noticing more and more that some authors are inserting dog characters and a pic of the dog on the cover just to make the sale without any real effort to write the dog into the plot. To Kill A Labrador is not one of them. The dog is clearly part of the story, and the human characters and plot are believable. I enjoyed the storyline immensely and appreciate the effort the author took to explain about service animals and their importance. I look forward to the next book in the series. Very talented author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun new series! 27 May 2016
By c-lu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The ex-Marine with PTSD and the murder of his wife set the stage for Marcia to somehow feel responsible not only for the therapy dog she trained, but for Jimmy as well. There are twists and turns and characters are not always as they seem initially.

Marcia's curiosity and outrage at the stereotypic response to the veteran lead to some interesting interactions while working with Buddy's despondence over his change in placement, her continued training of Lacy and Max, and the surprise in her living room. Then there's the hunky local detective and Marcia's hesitancy to engage in the possibilities there.

Well-written, with well-developed characters make for an enjoyable read on many levels. TO KILL A LABRADOR is bound to capture the interest of many.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great New Series 26 November 2016
By Barb Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To Kill A Labrador: A Marcia Banks and Buddy Mystery is the first book in a new cozy series about a Florida dog trainer who trains service dogs for veterans wih PTSD from deployment in Iraq and Afganistan. As a dog lover and would-be trainer, I was hooked from the very beginning. The characters are easy to like, the plot realistic and the story fast paced. I hope there will be many more books in this series!

5.0 out of 5 stars CUDDLING WITH THE LABRADOR 2 May 2016
By Kim Terry Schwarz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Being one who loves mysteries and dogs, to begin with, I knew I'd like this book, to begin with. Add the PTSD dimension, and I was hooked! Marcia Banks is a highly-believable, multidimensional character who is also really likable. And I reveled in Buddy's warm, assuring "dogginess" and Will Haines' "hunkiness". This engaging "read" has kept me good company while I've been hanging out with the hub, awaiting his surgery. Great job, Kassandra Lamb!
