Just finished this one, it was another excellent read by Nora. I loved the parts about the dog training, and Simon was a great hero. Good story, it moved right along for me. I finished it one night.
I loved this book it had just the right amount of suspense to keep you guessing to the end.
This was a wonderful book! I enjoyed it from the very first page. I am a dog lover and Fiona having a Search and Rescue business was very interesting to me. It has a lot of mystery, a splash of romance, and a very strong main character, Fiona. She has been traumatized in the past but has struggled to rebuild her life. Nora Roberts has a GREAT one in The Search. Loved every page of it!!
Roberts at her best! A dog trainer, she is the target of a serial trainer and has issues with a love carver. Good read to the end!
This book was an interesting but difficult read. Although Nora Roberts is an amazing writer, this book seemed to get away from her a little. The story is focused on Fiona Bristow, a woman who owns a dog training school and operates a Search and Rescue team. Fiona has returned home to an island off Seattle's coast in order to heal from an attack from a serial killer. Eight years earlier Fiona was the sole survivor of a deadly rampage from a serial killer that took the life of her cop fiance Greg. Now, Fiona has settled into a comfortable life where she is surrounded by family, friends and her beloved three dogs. Recently, Fiona has found romance in the form of artist Simon, a handsome, blunt man who asks her to train his feisty dog. When a copycat serial killer starts sending Fiona deadly messages and begins a new killing spree, Fiona knows it's only a matter of time until the killer tries to take her out. Although this book was interesting, I didn't particularly feel that the characters were ones I could relate to. The romance was so-so, filled with a few hot love scenes. I honestly think a large portion of this book should have been edited out. Perhaps editors don't edit a big writer like Nora Roberts but a huge portion of this book was extraneous and unnecessary. Overall, this book was good but far from her usual greatness.
