I love this series, but not the strongest entry. Buck is one of my favorite recurring characters and I loved his part in this, but I missed the usual dog show elements as well as Holly being in top form. This was more of a swing book to advance the personal life elements of the series, in my opinion. Worth reading for any fan of the series, however.
