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
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 Loved it! 10 June 2017

I have to admit, that title almost put me off. I'm from the "I so t care who dies In a book, as long as the dog lives" school of thought. The last thing I wanted to read would be a book about killing a Labrador. How horrible. But.....I'm delighted to tell you the book is seriously misnamed. The Labrador in question is an especially sweet dog, as are several others in the book. No spoilers. But if you're a crazy dog loved like I am, you can read it without fear.

It's great as a mystery - a strong smart savvy female protagonist whose only real fault lies in forgetting her cell phone, or allowing the battery to run down. Surely none of us have ever done such a thing, right? There are other believable characters and a host of not - so - nice people who form the villain lineup. But what's really interesting are all the facts and tidbits of information about how service dogs are trained and paired with - in this case - veterans suffering from PTSS. Fascinating. My dogs are always the worst trained in the room. They tug on the leash, they jump up to welcome friends - or probably burglars - they beg for a bite of whatever I'm eating, so it was fun to see how these lifesaving four footed companions are taught not just their manners, but how to serve their humans individual needs, whatever they might be. It was an inspiration to me, to try to install a bit of discipline in my fur babies.

This was the first book I've read in this series - won't be the last. If you love dogs, don't miss this great book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worthy read 18 July 2016
By J. McGinnis - Published on

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

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 good read about service dogs and mystery 5 June 2017
By krysha - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved this book. I grew up with dogs and adore them. Marcia trains service dogs. Buddy is her first trainee and he is with a vet who lost his leg. He is accused of murdering his wife. This story runs to all different suspects and keeps you wondering. Of course no good story wouldn't have a sexy sheriff in it. Read the book. A good read for lovers of dogs. I like to see how they actually train service dogs. Good job.
