Whatever the age of your dog, these titles can help you begin training your dog now.
As a college student, Fiona managed to escape from a serial killer. A few months after her escape, the killer ambushed her policer officer fiancÚ and killed him and his K-9 dog, but the dog was able to injure the killer enough so that he was caught and put in prison for life. Fiona has recovered and has made a good life for herself, running a dog training school and working with a K-9 search and rescue unit. She is living on Orcas Island, near Seattle, and runs her business out of her home.
Simon, her new neighbor and a wood artist, arrives at her house with an enthusiastic new puppy that badly needs training. Simon's blunt manner delights her and soon, they are training his puppy and starting a relationship with possibilities. One day, a sheriff's deputy arrives to tell her that a killer with the same MO as the one she escaped from has surfaced and killed. The race begins to find out who is copying her assailant before more women are killed.
Roberts fills her novel with a cast of believable secondary characters, such as Fiona's dogs, her stepmother, her best friend, Mai, and the people in her search and rescue unit. The details of her dog training and rescue missions are wonderful.
