Homicidal librarian? Small town? Strong female lead? Yes, please! My favorite part of this series is internal struggle Afton has with wanting to kill. Trying not to spoil anything but once she embraces who she is, things get very interesting. Let’s just say she turns on the badass and it’s so cool to see. I also love the side characters. Jones did a fantastic job and letting us as an audience fall in love with them too. Kind makes me want a spin of series... 10/10 would recommend for those of use who love a bit of dark humor, strong female leads, and an action-packed story.

P.S. The voice actor for this series was so PERFECT!

Nothing could have prepared Brennan Glover for the car crash that claimed the lives of his wife and six-year-old daughter. Stricken with grief, the only things that get him through each day are breaking his sobriety and clinging to Fender - the family dog and the sole survivor of the crash. Desperate to distance Brennan from tragedy, his two closest friends take him on the cross-country road trip they had always talked about. But what begins as an effort to mend his broken heart ends up unraveling a secret that changes everything he thought he knew about his family.

What an emotional journey! Fender is a wonderful story of discovery + hope. As a certified dog mom (yes, I made that up), I loved reading the interactions between the pup Fender and his human Brennan. I also thoroughly enjoyed the progression that the road trip symbolized. I don't want to give anything away too much but some of my favorite moments are at the halfway point.

The author does a great job of getting you to care for the main characters and absolutely despise some of the others. Brennan's late wife's parents are the worst! His friends genuinely care for him. By the end, you're rooting for Brennan to succeed.

I also loved the narration! The voice actor did a fantastic job of capturing the emotion.

All in all, I highly recommend this lovely book to everyone! You don't have to be a dog lover to enjoy the story either.
