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.

do not order dog the book!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I don't think anyone I know would enjoy this poorly written story. I kept hoping it would get better. But it never did.

What was most disappointing about C. T. Wente’s story?

It went on and on about how beautiful this young lady was and how smart she was . In fact she is just like so many young women, only she is a bar keeper who says smart remarks to the men who tell her she is beautiful. She is a rude person who is doing nothing but working in a bar.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He was not good!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

DISAPPOINTMENT . Only the title was interesting , Down hill from there.

Any additional comments?

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.
