A really enjoyable lite read. Am buying the next one for a couple of nights when I can't sleep and need a short relaxing read.

Good mystery; Buddy and Marcia are a good combination! Jimmy Garrett is a former Marine amputee suffering from PTSD acquired in Iraq. When Jimmy is arrested and charged with murder of his wife, his service dog, Buddy, a Labrador Retriever is cared for by his former trainer, Marcia Banks. While making sure Jimmy is being cared for properly in jail, she becomes acquainted with Sheriff Will Haines. She also begins to realize that something stinks in Collinsville, Florida and it centers around the death of Jimmy’s wife. Disoriented by Jimmy’s apparent suicide in jail, Marcia feels she must help clear Jimmy’s name, the results of which place her in danger and threaten her life. To Kill A Labrador is a excellent murder mystery that will make readers hang on every page to see what is going to happen on the next page. The story is rich with information about service dogs and their training. Buddy is lovable, as is Marcia, although I would have to characterize Marcia as a little headstrong and foolish. Nevertheless, a gamble she takes in training Buddy in an unusual skill so he can help train another dog, pays off handsomely in the end. Will Haines, the other main character, remains an unknown until the very end. To Kill A Labrador is a fun story that will be enjoyed by every reader of mysteries, and adventure stories. It will also be enjoyed by anyone who loves animal books or about service dogs and their training.

Kassandra Lamb's To Kill A Labrador Great new series featuring Marcia Banks who trains service dogs for veterans suffering from Post Trauma Stress Syndrome. The first dog, Buddy, that Marcia trained is being returned to her when the veteran owner is arrested for murder. Marcia does not believe that he is guilty and set out with Buddy to prove the veteran innocent. This is a fast paced, action packed story with many twists and turns which keep you guessing. All the characters are vivid, colorful and well defined. Captivating writing, vivid description, murder, mystery, mayhem, a engaging plot, thrills, chills with unexpected twists makes this a good book to read. Learning about training service dogs is an added feature. Thank you to the author for this eBook. My opinion is my own

I loved this book from the very first page – and it had me captivated to the very last word. Marcia (pronounced Mar-See-A) Banks is a fun and quirky character – who trains service animals for those afflicted PTSD – mostly combat veterans in small-town Florida. What’s not to love about a cozy mystery that involves a person dedicated to such a worthy cause – and a dog named Buddy, too?! The story truly sucks you right in and keeps you riding along the til the very end. This is the first in a new series by Kassandra Lamb – author of the great Kate Huntington mystery series. Just like the Kate books, I now can’t wait for the next in this new series. I know it’s a guarantee if it’s written by Kassandra Lamb that I’m going to savor every word and search for clues along with the protagonist(s)!!! By the way – the cover is adorable, too!!!!
