Publisher Description

A canine Search and Rescue volunteer fights danger and finds love in the Pacific Northwest wilderness in this riveting #1 New York Times bestseller from Nora Roberts.

To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life—a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school and a challenging volunteer job performing Canine Search and Rescue. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare: an encounter with the Red Scarf Killer, who shot and killed Fiona’s cop fiancé and his K-9 partner.

On Orcas Island, Fiona has found the peace and solitude necessary to rebuild her life with her three loyal Labs. But all that changes on the day intensely private wood artist Simon Doyle barrels up her drive with an out-of-control puppy, desperate for her help.

As Fiona embarks on training Jaws, and Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona’s life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands...

    " I did't think the ending had enough 'punch..." "

    " Good characters and story. Could have been shorter, parts dragged on and didn't add much to the overall picture. Loved that Fiona was so strong as well as Simon. They make a great team. How obedient the dogs were makes me want to get some and I am not a fan of dogs. "

    " Really liked this book. Never wanting the story to end of course. Would be a great book for dog lovers too cuz the main character is a dog trainer. "

    " My second Nora Roberts title. Well, her writing certainly trumps Danielle Steel, but if I never read another Nora Roberts I won't lose any sleep over it. "

    " Very predictable, fairly typical Nora Roberts. I enjoy her books when I have a couple hours to kill and don't feel particularly like thinking. The thing I like best about Roberts is the detail about the careers of the main characters. I knew nothing about dog training prior to reading The Search, but now I feel like I have a rudimentary understanding of the process. This book is different from most of Roberts's prior novels because you know who the killer is almost from the beginning, and so does the protagonist. Usually in her books, it's the ubiquitous but unassuming supporting character, and the main character finds out immediately before the killer shows up for the climax, so this story didn't annoy me by following that pattern.

    " Probably my favorite Nora Roberts book in a while. While the characters fell into her standard types, they did feel a little more developed. I loved the descriptions of dog training and Search and Rescue procedures. And I wish I could see the tree stump sink. "

    " Liked this way better than I expected to. Love JD Robb, but have only tried 1 or 2 NR. But this was full of the snappy dialog that is a big part of the JD Robb attraction, plus the main character is a dog trainer, and the male lead reminds me of Jack Reacher. Nuff said. "

    " Snooze fest. It strung you along for forever with very little payoff. the Protagonist love intrest is a wash. The serial killer not at all frightening and the stand off over in about a minute needed some serious editing. Story line would have been better as a short story "
