New Leash on Life (Gone to the Dogs, #6) by Kathleen Y'Barbo


How Is a Missing Military Working Dog Related to Two Local Fires?
Snuggle with your trusty hound and settle into a small-town mystery in book 6 of the Gone to the Dogs series.
Air Force veteran Dr. Lane Bishop and Nora Hernandez’s romance has cooled. He is busy working as a researcher at the vet school, and she’s busy with her restaurant and opening an antique shop. What Lane hasn’t told her is his PTSD, which manifests mostly with nightmares, makes him believe he’s damaged goods. But that is about to change when he meets a stray pup that acts a lot like a military working dog.
When a tornado hits Brenham, there is damage in the downtown area and a fire is ignited in Nora’s new store. A Belgian Malinois dog is seen at the fire and later Lane sees him at a wedding venue where an explosion occurs. Not long after, a second explosion rocks Brenham and sends Nora and Lane on a hunt for the person responsible. Will the pair find the guilty party before more damage is done to the city’s landmarks? And will Lane find the words to tell Nora how much he loves her before it’s too late?

My Review

 This is a read that really highlighted the senses of a dog. Of course, the dog is well trained, or so it is assumed.

This is the sixth book in this series, and it can be read alone, there are recurring characters, and the other books are so good!

This is Nora's story and her relationship Lane, and family and friends are wanting them, or Lane to make a decision!

Enter a solution, on a round about way, a tornado, fire, and unfortunately, drugs, but on the upside a beautiful well trained military dog, that in the end changes lives.

There is also a rescued cat, but there is a mystery, and as the facts unfold, wow, I really didn't see a lot of it coming!

Can't wait for the next book in this series!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
