Pat's Review:

This is not a typical K-9 rescue novel; it follows the adventures of an Animal Rescue Specialist (Pet Detective) who stumbles into some dangerous activities.

Macayla (Mac) Burkett enjoys her job as a pet detective most of the time. There were those days though -- "she'd been bitten by an accidentally cornered squirrel and sprayed by a startled skunk." Her last job was finding three very expensive racing greyhounds, which didn't end well. She found the dogs dead, and witnessed what appeared to her as a man being shot. She reported it to the police, but they could find no evidence. Chasing a Pomeranian from under a dumpster was her present task. A very tall gorgeous Aussie named Oliver Kelly with his Australian Shepherd Jackeroo end up helping with the rescue, and then protecting her from thugs that were bashing in her car. Oliver is intrigued and attracted to this crazy woman. Mac is trying to ignore his muscles and a very attractive butt!

Oliver works for an organization called BARKS......Bolt Action K-9 Services. He's in St. Petersburg, Florida for a conference where he is supposed to give a speech. He is terrified of speaking, but Mac talks him down and helps and all goes well. He changes his plans and decides to spend more time with Mac, especially when she is accused of being a part of a dognapping ring. Things get dangerous and Max confesses a tragic and frightening incident in her past. Not only dangerous, but the heat rises when Mac and Oliver realize their attraction is more than a fling.

This novel has lots of laughs, sizzles and dogs. The danger and intrigue make this an enjoyable read.
