Publisher's Summary

Ray McKenna returns from the war in Iraq to find that she had attained unwanted celebrity status back home. As the only surviving American soldier of a well-publicized hostage crisis, she is the center of attention at a time when all she wants is solitude. Struggling to overcome the fear and anxiety that plague her, she relies on her psychiatric therapy dog Jagger to help her through the vicious symptoms of PTSD. Veterinarian Dr. Carly Warner hasn't yet figured out how to open her heart to the possibility of falling in love again after the death of her longtime partner. When Ray McKenna walks into the North Coast Veterinary Clinic with Jagger, she and Carly begin a friendship that takes them both by surprise. Brought together by their shared love of dogs, Ray and Carly discover that they are both capable of moving forward, if only they are brave enough to try.

Wish I read reviews of narrator first

I remember reading this book and loving the story. Yesterday I saw if had an audiobook upgrade so I bought it with out reading reviews. Big mistake. I honestly stopped listening before the first chapter. The narrator is horrible and I've heard some other bad ones. I wish they would re record this and get a much better recording because it ruins the story. Read the book don't bother with the audio it is worth paying the e book version. It's 2 bucks wasted.

Nice story Horrible Narration too bad :-(

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No, it would have been better if I would have read it instead.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Amanda Goodyear?

Almost anyone else. I personally like Felicity Munroe, Lisa Cordileone or Alexandria Wilde.

Any additional comments?

It is a shame that this book wasn't narrated better. The story is really good, I usually love Meghan O'Brien books this one left me upset with the bad narration. I should have stopped listening and bought the book instead, the narrator spoiled the it for me. I really hope they get a different narrator for her next book.
