I AM SHOWCASING A FAVORITE DOG STORY.  ROBO is a K-9 dog and by reading in order you follow him as he meets handler, Mattie. I highly recommend this series.


The Stalking Grounds

Thursday, Mid-October A bead of sweat rolled down Deputy Mattie Cobb’s face beneath the plastic guard on her helmet. She tilted her head to keep the sweat from going into her eyes and caught a glimpse of the sky.”

My review

The second book continues the story of Mattie Cobb and Robo, a K-9 dog. A missing person case Deputy Ken Brody’s girlfriend is missing. The team begins to search for her but there are almost no clues to where she might be. An anonymous phone sends Mattie and Robo into the high country where they find the body. It is late and Brody leaves to bring the CSI team and supplies. Mattie and Robo stayed with the body. An early snowfall arrives and the night is cold and long. The description is so accurate you are right there with Mattie and Robo.
Dr. Walker leaves at once to take food, tents and other supplies. He arrives in time to help Mattie. I was so engrossed that I read it in one sitting. The sheriff officers find the clue to the answer and headed to arrest the killer, only to learn Dr. Walker has not returned from a visit to the ranch.  I HIGHLY recommend this book and series.

  1. Happy Friday!!

    My FLF comes from a book I’m hoping to get to soon, Looking for a Hero by Debbie Macomber.

    Savannah Charles watched the young woman wandering around her bridal shop, checking prices and looking more discouraged by the moment. Her shoulders slumped and she bit her lip when she read the tag on the wedding gown she’d selected.

    Have a great weekend!!

  2. Love one sitting reads! I’m sharing from Michelle Griep’s The Innkeeper’s Daughter on my blog today, so here are the first two lines from another one of my current reads, Winter in Thrush Green:

    “Autumn had come early to Thrush Green. The avenue of horse-chestnuts, which ran across its northerly end, blazed like a bonfire.”

    Happy Friday!

  3. This series sounds like something I might enjoy. Happy Friday!
