I thoroughly enjoyed RELENTLESS. The story stayed with me when I put the book down. There were several elements that made RELENTLESS a fabulous read. First, it’s a love story focused on the horse world. As a horse lover, any novel involving horses catches my attention. As a horse rescue operator, having Bren, the heroine, involved with rescue and fighting the dirty secret—horse slaughter—well, that’s an important subject too often swept under the rug.
P. J. O’Dwyer tackles the horror and heartache of slaughter, hopefully bringing attention to a cruelty that needs to be stopped. Finally, as an avid reader, I found RELENTLESS to be well-written with surprising twists and turns. The action kept me riveted and surprised. I’m truly looking forward to the rest of the Fallon Sisters Trilogy.

When Tom Ryan was murdered, his wife Bren was relentless in the pursuit of his killer, to the point she thinks that the man that stole her horse and sent it to the slaughter house is guilty of murder. Now, wild horses are being rounded up and sent to the same Mexican slaughterhouse. When Bren is kidnapped by her husband's murderer, will the new love of her life, arrive in time to save her?
Sometimes the least expected enemy can be a friend and a friend becomes a cold blooded killer.

“RELENTLESS is a page burner of a murder mystery with an unlikely heroine, staged in a quiet little piece of animal welfare that is very near and dear to my heart. Bren is a strong-willed, feisty redhead whose #1 life passion is saving, rescuing, and rehoming horses in need, until the day her husband is murdered.
“Even with her heart, her mind, and her time largely consumed with finding Tom’s murderer, Bren continues with their life’s work of Grace Equine Sanctuary . . . and that mixture of unending dedication leads to a ‘never saw that coming’ finish you won’t want to miss.
“While clearly a fictional tale, O’Dwyer’s depiction of certain elements of the underbelly of the equine world is accurate and eye opening to those horse lovers who may have little or no idea of the dark realities.”

The story has a lot of twists and turns. Is there a killer? Not what one expects. Kept me in suspense throughout. Cannot wait until the next book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

“RELENTLESS perfectly describes the heroine in this novel. Bren’s passion, determination, and dedication are qualities anyone involved in horse rescue can relate to. The imagery surrounding the conditions and processes of a slaughter house, coupled with the suffering of both the horses and Bren, are powerful and riveting themes the author perfectly intertwines. This book had my full attention from the first to the last page. Real life issues close to my heart, along with romance, mystery, and common, everyday struggles left me wanting more and more! This is a must-read book for all avid horse lovers and the champions who work tirelessly to improve conditions for all horses!”

RELENTLESS, an enjoyable ride of a novel. From the depth of the characters to the reality of small-town life, this novel is one to be reckoned with. O’Dwyer nails the seriousness of the horse slaughter issue through mystery, intrigue, suspense, and romance.”

“Thanks to Ms. O’Dwyer for having a horse rescue advocate as her heroine in RELENTLESS. In 2007 the Unwanted Horse Coalition estimated that there were approximately 170,000 unwanted horses in the United States. Building awareness of this issue is so important for those of us working for the horses. Thanks so much for making it an enjoyable read as well!”

“Lovers of horses, mystery and romance rolled into one intriguing package will want to place Relentless at the top of their must-read list for 2012! O’Dwyer’s vivid writing hooks the reader in for the ride, but beyond that illuminates the urgent issues surrounding wild horses, slaughter and horse rescue. This book is a many-sided gem you won’t want to miss!” ~ Carol M. Upton, Co-founder Sunshine Coast School of WritingWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
