    The Search is still my all time favorite novel by this author I read it at least once a year And if you are a dog lover this is a BOOK I would recommend you to read I should start by mentioning that I always wanted a dog, but unfortunately it hasn t happened yet But every time I read this book, my desire of wanting a dog goes through the roof Just be warned lol Fiona Bristow, dog trainer extraordinaire, who survived a kidnapping years ago, finally lives a peaceful and content life on Or The Search is still my all time favorite novel by this author I read it at least once a year And if you are a dog lover this is a BOOK I would recommend you to read I should start by mentioning that I always wanted a dog, but unfortunately it hasn t happened yet But every time I read this book, my desire of wanting a dog goes through the roof Just be warned lol Fiona Bristow, dog trainer extraordinaire, who survived a kidnapping years ago, finally lives a peaceful and content life on Orca island north of Seattle She is a kick ass heroine, busy training dogs and with this I can do it myself attitude but also has a good head on her shoulders.Simon, a grumpy, taciturn, and blunt hunk of a wood artist, and new owner of an energetic puppy, is in dire need of help which Fiona can provide They meet under not the best circumstances Simon s puppy just ate the head rest in his new truck and all he wants is HELP or one of her dogs in exchange for his misbehaving puppy When Fiona, an independent and strong female collides with Simon, socially stunted and cynical it gets quickly interesting Even so they are different in disposition it s surprising how well they compliment each other And that s mostly because both respect boundaries, and each other s way of living Although neither expected this kind of change in status quo, Fiona is game, whereas Simon is the one that takes a little longer to accept what s happening.The relationship between them starts slowly, Jaw the puppy is the glue that brings them together, but their individual personalities is what draws them closer I love the slow burn, and love how their relationship grows with mutual interest, attraction but also moves along naturally.The book had a whole cast of interesting secondary characters, human and canine The search and rescue portion of the book was incredibly detailed and full of fascinating information It s one aspect that always stands out in a NR novel the details and deeply researched topics.I believe this book would be a perfect and enjoyable read for any dog lover and owner

    I read the Search by Nora Roberts and this is one intense read The characters Fiona Bristow and Simon Doyle are hilarious which helps during the tense scary parts Fiona is a dog trainer and works on the search and rescue canine team Her dogs are brilliant and when Simon comes over with his unruly, ill mannered dog Simon is about ready to wash his hands of him until Fiona helps him teach Jaws to be a smart puppy It was so nice to see the dogs being trained over and above the typical obedienc I read the Search by Nora Roberts and this is one intense read The characters Fiona Bristow and Simon Doyle are hilarious which helps during the tense scary parts Fiona is a dog trainer and works on the search and rescue canine team Her dogs are brilliant and when Simon comes over with his unruly, ill mannered dog Simon is about ready to wash his hands of him until Fiona helps him teach Jaws to be a smart puppy It was so nice to see the dogs being trained over and above the typical obedience training There was a serial killer that captured Fiona when she was younger and when she escaped from him, he stalked and killed her fiance She has not really opened her heart to anyone since The relationship that Fiona and Simon have made me laugh out loud on several occasions Simon, who I love by the way, was so unwilling to have a woman or a dog in his life So he had both popping up all through the story Great writing on Nora Roberts part She as always, gave these two so much personality and background that you really got to know them One of the best Nora Roberts books I have read, and I have read a lot by her as she is one of my most favorite authors Her humor and her intensity are so well balanced that you feel like you have been through the gritty and grimy events with the main characters The dogs were so on point They almost stole the book away from Fiona and Simon Excellent story with a lot of intense moments and many creepy moments with a couple of serial killers

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Scratch head Was this a romance story or a training guide for dogs I enjoyed it, but I swear this readlike a training guide for dogs with a romantic suspense story thrown in for good measure While I do love a good Nora Roberts book, I find too many are just filled with waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much filler content Fortunately for me I love dogs to pieces so it wasn t always boring stuff, but once I finished the book I realized how much of it was just filler fluff and not all t Scratch head Was this a romance story or a training guide for dogs I enjoyed it, but I swear this readlike a training guide for dogs with a romantic suspense story thrown in for good measure While I do love a good Nora Roberts book, I find too many are just filled with waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much filler content Fortunately for me I love dogs to pieces so it wasn t always boring stuff, but once I finished the book I realized how much of it was just filler fluff and not all that relevant to the story OK, now that I have that off my chest, I really did like the romance aspect of this story The heroine Fiona Bristow was a likeable enough heroine, and her love interest Simon Doyl grew on me over time In the end, I became a full believer in their love for each other They took the romance slow and steady, and I loved how Simon dealt with his changing feelings His simple bachelor life was melting away right in front of him, and he begrudgingly found himself enjoying the change.The rest of the story centers around dog training, uh, I mean a serial killer reaching out from prison to get redemption for his one and only botched kill Eight years earlier Fiona escaped his clutches so he took retribution by killing her fianc She identified him and he was sentenced to life in prison, but even now he is plotting her death by enlisting and training a copy cat serial killer The suspense part of the story was minimal and not overly gripping We follow the new serial killer from time to time to watch his endeavors as he plots to kill Fiona, but for the most part she is busy teaching us about search and rescue techniques with her volunteer K9 unit The ending wasn t what I predicted, and I found I liked this ending much better so it did end on a high note for me Overall, I give this one 3 milk bones

    If you have a dog and want to train him her then by all means pick up this book as this readslike a how to guide I like dogs but this was overkill Seriously, page after page on how to train your dog and what s involved in search and rescue missions.She gets a point for starting off the book really well but that s about it There was no suspense and the killer storyline could have been so, so much better What I found to be unbelievable was the romance between Fiona and Simon Nothing a If you have a dog and want to train him her then by all means pick up this book as this readslike a how to guide I like dogs but this was overkill Seriously, page after page on how to train your dog and what s involved in search and rescue missions.She gets a point for starting off the book really well but that s about it There was no suspense and the killer storyline could have been so, so much better What I found to be unbelievable was the romance between Fiona and Simon Nothing about these two made them stand out as they are so not interesting In fact, I find it hard to believe that any woman would put up with a man like Simon who is bossy, irritating and plain rude A total turn off As for Fiona, I have to agree with another reviewer that it felt like she was training Simon like she trains her dogs I just didn t understand the attraction between the two He even tells her that she s not beautiful and she still wants him For people who can t even figure out their own feelings about one another, she Roberts has them conversing several times as psychologists assessing what the killer is feeling and why he s doing what he s doing, as well as acting like profilers of killers Yeah, whatever As for the ending, pretty bad It s as though after 480 pages Roberts realized she better wrap it up and she did Badly I ve read a few of Nora Roberts books and some are hits and some are misses Guess where this one belongs

    I ve been getting a little worried because the past couple of Nora Roberts books haven t really tripped my trigger But this one was awesome Fiona Bristow was kidnapped almost ten years ago, the only survivor of a serial killer who would find single, athletic women, kill them and then bury them in a shallow grave in a national park After Fiona managed to escape, the killer went back and killed her boyfriend and his K9 unit In his memory, Fiona opened up a dog training school which does eve I ve been getting a little worried because the past couple of Nora Roberts books haven t really tripped my trigger But this one was awesome Fiona Bristow was kidnapped almost ten years ago, the only survivor of a serial killer who would find single, athletic women, kill them and then bury them in a shallow grave in a national park After Fiona managed to escape, the killer went back and killed her boyfriend and his K9 unit In his memory, Fiona opened up a dog training school which does everything from simple obedience to search and rescue Simon Doyle is a gifted carpenter who sells his wares in Fiona s stepmother s art gallery He has a puppy in need of some training and comes to Fiona for help He s somewhat attracted to Fiona but not really sure if he wants it to go any further than attraction, after all, it s a small island But then, someone starts imitating the serial murderer who went after Fiona and she is once again thrown into danger.Some fun dog training tips A little annoyance on my part that Simon felt like he was being trained but got over it pretty quickly and who does that I read this book in a quick couple of days and loved it
