Isn't the cover of this book great?! The second book in this series is just as wonderful as the first. Marcia Banks is busy training dogs for veterans suffering from PTSD. Soon Marcia is embroiled in the "drama" surrounding the life of the prospective human meant for the adorable Lacy. I was totally caught up in the twists and turns of the story. And interested in learning how each dog is matched/trained with their new person. The secondary characters in the story - the people the inhabit Marcia's world - are back, too. And, of course, Buddy (the black lab that was the star of the first book) is also a part of this tale. I love the "after words" shared by the author at the end of the boo. I look forward to the next book in the series! In the meantime, I know there will be a new book in the other (Kate) series by this author. Do yourself a favor and start reading the books by Kass Lamb. DISCLAIMER: I was provided a ARC copy of this book from the author for an honest review.
Another Kassandra Lamb cozy mystery featuring dog trainer Marcia and her adorable canine sidekicks. Just as Buddy the lab mix was the star of To Kill a Labrador, Marcia finds herself working with a new dog, Lacy and a new client with a new set of issues. While skillfully weaving in the very real story lines of the victimization of women in the armed forces Kassandra Lamb manages to keep much of the tome light as stubborn Marcia insists of trying to do things her way even when the hunky local sheriff is her boyfriend. Light and humorous in places, informative and darker in others this is a great airplane or vacation read with characters that you can follow across what is sure to become a multi book series.Disclaimer, I received an advance copy of this book from the author in return for a personal and unbiased review.
Remember young Lacy from To Kill a Labrador that Marcia was training to go for help (the Lassie thing)? Well now Marcia is working with Lacy's handler, but there are complications. This is another one of those set aside a day books (8 hours reading time) with ups and downs but well worth the time investment.
I was looking forward to book #2 in the Marcia and Buddy series just from the teaser in the first book. Arsenic and Young Lacy lived up to my expectations. This book is an easy read that is fast paced with a lot of twists. Fasten you seat belt before you take off. Kassandra Lamb brings us a female veteran with PTSD and some very realistic complications at home. Marcia, our service dog trainer, wants to get paid for her labors and she wants to get her latest service dog, Lacy, settled in with her new owner. Lacy has to be placed in order for Marcia to get paid and herein lies some complications. Home life with her new owner has Marcia questioning whether or not Lacy is safe with such a not so stable placement.I have to admit that just about the time I decided that I knew what was coming next I found myself blindsided with a new twist. This is an enjoyable read with a lot of information thrown in about a very real situation in our society, PTSD. I highly recommend the Marcia and Buddy series.I received an advance copy in exchange for an honest review.
I loved the title and cover of this book as soon as I saw it. Then you start reading and love it even more! It's a real page turner and I couldn't wait to pick it up again. A good book to give you a reason to read until the wee hours of the morning.Kassandra Lamb has another great series going, with this being book #2. Not only do you get a great mystery with this book, there's a bit of romance, some suspense, and you'll learn about PTSD and how service dogs are trained to help their owners.Whenever I thought I knew who the villain was in the book, the author would throw some more twists and turns to the story that made me doubt myself! That always adds more intrigue to a story and I'm already looking forward to book #3 and more of Marcia's adventures.This was a good mystery I would highly recommend!* I received an advance copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
