Heather Gudenkauf has created memorable characters here in Amelia and her service dog Stitch. I loved what their relationship brought to the story and that is what made this story an enjoyable read for me. It was very refreshing to read a story with a person/dog connection. Stitch by far was the best character in this story and I loved his attitude “I will listen when I need to” and that reminded me of my dog.
Amelia is not your typical thriller heroine. She is the woman in trouble character that brings on the some trouble herself and I will admit had me a bit frustrated at times. I did find that her decisions and prying added some tension to the story and had me yelling to her in my head “why would you do that” and “what are you thinking”. It added some fun for me.
I did think the ending was pushing it and I was not completely satisfied with it. Some will find this one predictable with not much guesswork but for me, sometimes I just don’t want to think to much but just read. I recommend for others looking for a light fun thriller, that doesn’t require much guesswork.
