In several novels lately about returning female soldiers, authors have gone so overboard trying to make their heroines tough, they masculinize them to the point they are no longer engaging. Frankie, however, is an appealing character, worrying not just over her mental wounds, but how her physical ones will appear to others. By the end of the book it becomes apparent, though, that with help of her two lovable mutts, Frankie can take care of herself. The author is to be praised for her sensitive and realistic portrayal of a returning veteran in this page-turning mystery.
Lots of characters to keep up with, but also lots of suspects. This one will keep you guessing until the end.
After being discharged, she returned to the states looking for work as an EMT. Failing to find employment in a big city, she settles for a job as EMT, with the volunteer fire department in Hawksford, her small hometown in North Idaho. She wasn't looking for any recognition as a war hero, and keeps her medical problems to herself, afraid that she might be disqualified from the job she badly needs.
With her rescue dog, Banner, a big Samoyed, Frankie moves into a run-down duplex where the former tenant left behind a strange assortment of items which puzzle her. Right away she suspects something is not right but can't place a finger on it. When Banner discovers the previous owner's dog, Shine, wounded by a gun shot in the nearby woods, she suspects foul play. And after it turns out the duplex was the scene of a murder, Frankie and the now two rescue dogs move out. Her problems don't end there, attempts are now made on Frankie's life.
The story is filled with quirky characters and the reader gets a real feel for small town life. This is a page turner from beginning to end. The reader will have to read the entire story to see how the mysteries (there is more than one) are solved. Well-done, C. K. Crigger.
