A canine Search and Rescue volunteer fights danger and finds love in the Pacific Northwest wilderness in this riveting #1 New York Times bestseller from Nora Roberts.

To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life—a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school and a challenging volunteer job performing Canine Search and Rescue. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare: an encounter with the Red Scarf Killer, who shot and killed Fiona’s cop fiancé and his K-9 partner.

On Orcas Island, Fiona has found the peace and solitude necessary to rebuild her life with her three loyal Labs. But all that changes on the day intensely private wood artist Simon Doyle barrels up her drive with an out-of-control puppy, desperate for her help.

As Fiona embarks on training Jaws, and Simon begins to appreciate both dog and trainer, the past tears back into Fiona’s life. A copycat killer has emerged out of the shadows, a man whose bloodlust has been channeled by a master with one motive: to reclaim the woman who slipped out of his hands...

    Good read with enough heat to turn the page. Drags in places but always moves the reader forward.
  • No need to search for suspense...

    By ES the horror fan
    That title is right. If you love romantic suspense, and you’re looking for a great book that delivers both, if you’re looking for an author who can really tell a story, your search is over! There’s a reason Nora Roberts has such a huge fanbase, why she is one of the most popular novelists in America! The Search proves why! Simon and Fiona make a great couple, providing plenty of romance with every other chapter. In a suspenseful plot about a copycat serial killer, readers are treated to a storyline that offers suspense so thick you could cut it with a knife, a plot line that offers such a suspenseful, chilling, intriguing mystery that you won’t be able to stop guessing right up until the story’s frightening climax. This is not only a great book about family; it’s also a wonderful story for dog lovers! For fans of powerful romance and electrifying suspense, this book will keep you begging for more!👍🏻👍🏻

    Once you start reading this book you will not or can not put it down. Suspense in every page. Keeps you sitting on edge every page. And the romance just keeps going along. One of the best books I have ever read.

    Fiona was a strong brave woman that had endured more than I could have. Of course it helps when you find a love and have family to love and support you. It had amazing twist and turns that kept you off balance, but in the end came together nicely. The narrators were perfect for this book, they had energy that kept you listening.
