To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I would have read this in one setting if I hadn't had an appointment, so needless to say I couldnt wait to get home to finish reading. PTSD trained dogs are such a worthy cause so it was great to read a little about the training that goes into them to enable them to help sufferers. The story was good and the characters believable. I will be looking forward to the next story.
I enjoyed the book, it was simple and gentle. Sometimes it's good to just read something pleasant to get respite from all the crime and violence (which I do love to read). Being a dog lover myself, I appreciated the theme of responsible dog rescue, which is in vast contrast to what really happens.
I really enjoyed this book. It's a nice read for in bed. The title may be a bit putting off but in the end it's a great book. A story of a dog trainer (Marcia) and a dog, Buddy. (Obviously there are other characters, or that would be boring) it tells story of love, hate, and much more. It's very... emotional. Personally, I really enjoyed it and recommend getting it. There are a few little grmmar mistakes but ignore them. It's the story that matters. Most peoe will just skp over this review because it's long, so, thanks if you're still here. I've a few more things to say. Firstly, the book did confuse me a little bit at the start. Secondly, the chapters are quite long, and I like to finish off on a chapter, so I am not in the middle of something. And lastly, I think most people won't get this book because of the title. I mean, who on earth wants to kill a labrador, letalone any dog? I'd do four and half stars if I could.
Not to worry, this is a murder mystery and the labrador is a character in the plot, he's well protected and completely unharmed. Marcia, who trains service dogs, is determined to discover the murderer of her client's wife and subsequently finds herself in danger with her snooping. The local sheriff wants her to keep out of his case but is this only to stop her inquiries or for some other reason? In the process of her investigation, Marcia continues to annoy the sheriff and a bad tempered alligator threatens her - still no animals harmed. An enjoyable and well written murder mystery with 'will they, won't they' from Marcia and the sheriff to fill the romantic element.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book - it is well written, easy to read and it is easy to empathise with the characters. I loved the relationship between the protagonist and the dogs - some of the scenes brought a few lumps to my throat. I look forward to readying some of the other books in the series.
Good book, good story. Army vet arrested for killing his wife. His service dog goes back to his trainer and she sets about trying to find wife's killer. A lot of description about the training of service dogs which I have to admit I found fascinating. Oh and there's a love interest. Well it is a light-hearted read!
Liked the book, especially the insight into the dog training. This is another book that I nearly didn't read because the title put me off choosing it. Perhaps the author could rename it 'Run Buddy, Run'.
