Description

A canine Search and Rescue volunteer fights danger and finds love in the Pacific Northwest wilderness in this riveting #1 New York Times bestseller from Nora Roberts.

To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life—a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school and a challenging volunteer job performing Canine Search and Rescue. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare: an encounter with the Red Scarf Killer, who shot and killed Fiona’s cop fiancé and his K-9 partner.

On Orcas Island, Fiona has found the peace and solitude necessary to rebuild her life with her three loyal Labs. But all that changes on the day intensely private wood artist Simon Doyle barrels up her drive with an out-of-control puppy, desperate for her help.

As Fiona embarks on training Jaws, and Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona’s life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands...

    Fiona was a strong brave woman that had endured more than I could have. Of course it helps when you find a love and have family to love and support you. It had amazing twist and turns that kept you off balance, but in the end came together nicely. The narrators were perfect for this book, they had energy that kept you listening.
  • Another predictable story line

    First Nora Roberts book I've read, and I'm hooked. Great story line, and found myself laughing out loud and totally swept up in the store. Didn't want to put it down.

    If you are looking to train your dog, look no further, cause this book is for you. Roberts knowledge of dog and puppy training is vast, even specialized search and rescue training as she details the exercises emphatically and over and over and over and over again throughout this elite book on dog training. Correction, reward, proper human to dog interaction, how to be the pack leader, this book leaves no stone unturned. Oh, and somebody is murdering women and there's some romance or something going on in there too....
  • Exciting!!!
