Lots of Christian Emphasis

I only listened to the first hour or so, but there were frequent references to god, prayer, christianity, and faith in general in that short time. It was fairly heavy-handed, too. I am not religious and don't enjoy being preached to when reading for pleasure. And it absolutely felt like preaching. Also, I felt that the writing quality was poor. I will be returning this book, but since there is ABSOLUTELY NO MENTION of the christian influence in the blurb, I wanted to point that out to those who avoid and/or look for that type of story.

Amazing Book As Usual

The post by kestergayle is a good lesson that one should look up an author before reading a book. The book is not preachy but truthful. Those who are lost often see truth being spoken as preachy and it’s sad. Terri writes wonderful and entertaining books. This is a great read and I recommend it to everyone

Weak writing

This is set on an air force base. All the women come across as weak fragile flowers that needed to be protected. Also they ignore red flags and act stupid. This book drove me nuts.

K-9 ??? More like juvenile romance

My bad, I should have noticed the publisher. Sloppy romance...no actual dog handling. Even with the open ending, I'll not waste a credit on any more in this series.

I Love Dogs

Love stories with dogs and this was a good one. This has dogs working with people and there is a lot of action.

I like dogs and story is good and clean, but....

Narrator has such on nasal quality to her voice that every character sounds shy and timid and very female. Her voice inflections are good but sadly there is nothing she can do to change the quality or sound of her voice. I would like to listen to more from this author but it looks like all of the books in this series are narrated by the same person and I just can't do another book by this narrator.

Not Enough Dog

This was a sappy romance. There was some action from the dog, but not enough.

Good Book

As far a the story go it's quite a page turner. I also commend the author reference to the strong religious belief of the female military character. Many military members have a strong religious belief. It is understandable to have a personal guard for the targeted military character as caring weapons on base is usually for security police. only. lt shouldn't be a sign of weakness on the military female's abilies.
On the negative side the author could have done more research regarding military protocol . What irrated me the most is the references to enlist members saluting other enlisted members. Enlisted salutes officers not other enlisted members.

Poor representation of female service members

Heavy religious overtones, weak simpering women. Not a military K-9 focused book as the cover leads you to believe. Narration is flat, but even if the narrator was freaking awesome it wouldn't fix the horrible storyline. Definitely not worth a credit expense.
