What did you love best about Paw and Order?

Great little romance for the humans and the dogs, but not to goofy and stupid.

What other book might you compare Paw and Order to and why?

If you like Diane Kelly, you will like Donna Ball's Raine Stockton series.

The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn't much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he's content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.

With each and every new novel, Dean Koontz raises the stakes, and the pulse rate, higher than any other author. Now, in what may be his most suspenseful and heartfelt novel ever, he brings us the story of an ordinary man whose extraordinary commitment to his wife will take him on a harrowing journey of adventure, sacrifice, and redemption to the mystery of love itself, and to a showdown with the darkness that would destroy it forever.

What an incredible book full of insights that are based on sound research. Thomas Stanley, and William Danko, have really hit a home run with this book. Best of all, there is no prieching, just what they learned from their research about how real millionaires live. This book serves as a reality check for many I am sure.
