Publisher's Summary

Twenty-six year old Jeri Halston is brilliant, with looks as stunning as her intellect. She should be killing it on Wall Street or speed-climbing the corporate ladder. But she isn’t. Maybe her father’s death the year before is to blame. Maybe it's a quarter-life crisis. Even Jeri doesn’t know for sure. That's why she's pouring drinks for baby-faced co-eds and sullen old men at Joe's Last Stand Saloon. Tending bar at the ancient saloon on old Route 66 seems like the perfect way to sort things out.
At least, that was the plan. But then the letters started arriving. Funny, rambling confessions of love from an unknown admirer, postmarked from every corner of the world. A Polaroid photo in each letter reveals a tantalizing glimpse of their sender, but never his true identity. And always the same strange sign off - Don't order dog. Jeri can't help but be intrigued. But when an overzealous Homeland Security agent named Tom Coleman sees the letters and casually begins investigating the trail of Jeri's mysterious writer, a pattern starts to appear. A terrifying pattern. A pattern of murder and international terrorism that will throw Jeri's life into turmoil and force her to question everything she knows about the world, her country, and even her own past.
Please note: This novel has also been published under an alternate title: Ice Man Cometh.

Silly with a 'made for TV' sensibility

This may end up being one of your favorite new series but it was just fluff to me. I really enjoyed the narrator and liked that it takes place in Flagstaff, AZ but that's about the extent of it. It reads like a light version of The Blacklist or some other TV show where a woman finds out how strong she really is under the guidance of a man who is not who he appears to be. Oh, and throw in the current but stale theme in screenplays, corporate greed, add a little romance, sprinkle with some between-girls banter and you've got Don't Order Dog. Yawn.

Loved this story!

If you could sum up Don't Order Dog in three words, what would they be?

Fantastic fun ride!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

A slow starter that quickly picks up pace. Well developed characters and a plot that lured me in until I couldn't stop listening.

Which scene was your favorite?

Great, highly-evocative scenes from around the world kept my interest throughout, but my favorite place was the warm, cozy bar in Flagstaff.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book in just three sittings - a first for me.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next book!
