This was just ok. I like the relationship Creed had with all his dogs. He truly understood them. Creed was a man who was still suffering his demons ..Show More »about the war. The dog were strays who suffered some trauma. Creed was able to ease the tormented dogs and in turn they helped Creek stay connected with his humanity. There was a strong sense of loyalty between Creed and his dogs.
I enjoyed listening to Creed and Grace when they were working. Grace is this cute little Russell Terrier with a high intelligence and an excellent tracker. The author was able to give the dogs such personalities that was true to their breeds. I knew I found a flaw in the book when it describe a Russell Terrier as a tracker. So I research it and learned something new. That is something I like. It was emotional for me when Grace discovered the kids. That little boy... he had my heart.
I normally have at least two stories going at the same time. After I finished the other book, I did not feel the desire to finish this one. One thing that did happen was there was not enough action. I might finish it one day just to see how the crime is solved, but unfortunately, I just lost interest.
Alex's second best book yet! (Only to my first read & all time favorite, Exposed). If these same characters as Benjamin Platt and Ryder Creed had been..Show More » incorporated into the Maggie O'Dell series earlier, it would've improved the series 150%. The only things I'd like to see differently in he future/aspects that could've improved this novel is a bit of romance incorporated (other then how Alex had Maggie emotionally stuck between both men to a certain degree, yet will only have about 5 minutes' reading be about what they say to eachother to acknowledge it or do physically rather than all this tip-toeing around everything.). The only other improvement is another general characteristic seen in all her novels, which is too abrupt of an ending without any sense of resolution. Other than that, I really enjoyed this book and wouldn't hesitate suggesting it to anyone- especially to those who've enjoyed this series in the past or who are huge dog fans and fascinated at their helpful capabilities like I am.
This is the third book in the creed series. - it is a break off from the Maggie o'dell books. The first two were very good. All about Creed and..Show More » his working dogs. They were front and center. This was good story had all the characters from the other books. My only complaint - not enough dog! The main dog was in the story. But many others were never mentioned. This book was more like the Maggie books -
