I Love The Dogs! This story started out slow! I thought that it was going to be a dud. Well, I was wrong! It kept me on the edge of my seat until we found out what happened to all concerned people. I was worried that one of the dogs was going to get hurt. It is bad that there was one dead body, but not a hurt animal, that would be too much! It was a very well written mystery and I enjoyed the animal training spots. All in all it is a good read.

I stumbled upon this book by accident and found it to be very good. Not too long. A nice recreational read. Appalachia and dogs. Can't go wrong. I do hate books where the dog dies and this one not only lives but succeeds. I'll be looking for another by this author.

A very good story played out very well. However, much editing should have been done before publishing. I still enjoyed the story.
