Publisher's Summary

In Susan Wilson's The Dog Who Saved Me, former Boston K-9 unit policeman turned animal control officer in bucolic Harmony Farms is up against rescuing a gun shy and wounded dog gone feral, and proving that his low-life older brother is back in the drug business.

Fighting his shattering grief at the death of his K-9 partner killed in the line of duty, and a staggering loss of confidence from physical and psychic wounds of his own, Cooper Harrison is back where he started, where his father Bull was once known as the town drunk. Where his brother was a delinquent and bully. Where he's one of "those" Harrisons. Where Cooper must learn to forgive and, only then, heal.

    "4 or 5 stars?"

    The story was a bit depressing, bad people doing bad things. The protagonist being depressed as well.

    Tho the ending was 5 stars all the way. Really redeemed the whole experience.

    "Easy Listen"

    I really enjoyed this book it had a little bit of everything a sweet romance but that was not the main plot. it touched on the devastation of alcoholism that can cause so much grief in a family. The importance of the bond between ots owners and their incredible instincts and intelligence. I enjoyed it till the very last sentence. It was a light read with some important life issues. if your on the fence about it jump off and get it you won't be sorry you did.

    "Loooove!"

    The different view points make for an exciting read. I felt anxious to pick up where I left off each time i listened. Not a tear jerker. More of a heart warmer. :)

    "Enjoyed"

    Easy listening and although predictable I enjoyed the story. I might try another by the same author.

    "Susan Wilson has another winner"

    I love this author, and love how she weaves a tale, no pun intended. This is a heartwarming story that grabbed me from the beginning and kept my interest throughout the book. The narration was great, and the different narrators made it very easy to tell which character was speaking. I will be looking for more books by this author!

    Story
    "Like visiting a good friend"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most of my friends love dogs. This book would be enjoyed by any one of them.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, Cooper. He was broken. I've been there. I could relate...


    Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've not previously listened to this narrator, but liked him very much. Smooth masculine voice came across as an easy listen.


    If you could take any character from The Dog Who Saved Me: A Novel out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Bull, Cooper''s father. He also was broken but well worth rescueing.

    Story
    "Totally predictable"

    Wait....was this a book or a soap. Everyone in this book was a damaged cliche. The outcome was clear from the first couple of chapters. And the narration was even more painful than the story.
