I bought this becuase it was on sale and thought I would give it a try. I enjoyed the interaction of the 2 main characters and the storyline. I did think it was way too long and it went in to too many details about dog training (which I have to admit that I picked up a few pointers). Not bad.

You really need to have a soft spot for the canine in order to appreciate this book. 80% of the book is about training puppies and their humans, 10% romance, and the other 10% is about a serial killer that appears maybe every five chapters. Being that i love puppies and dogs i enjoyed the book, however Ms. Robert's could have added a few sub plots to make it more enjoyable. What i'm trying to say is if you aren't interested in search and rescue dogs, or the information on how to train a dog/puppy you may not enjoy this book. The narration was pretty decent, i'd listen to her again.

What did you like most about The Search?
It was unusual for a murder mystery insofar as the context was a pleasant story of a strong woman running her own business and falling for a man she met in the course of it. The main characters were exceptionally well drawn and even the secondary characters were engaging. In the early stages of the book, the sinister tale of a psychopath flicks in and out, building until that aspect overtakes the characters the listener/reader has come to know so well.
What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
The narration was first class.
Any additional comments?
Some reviewers have said this book would be good for those who like dogs. I think that risks suggesting its just 'okay'. This is far from the case. I really struggled to put it down. I was compelled to set aside time to listen instead of engaging in my normal routine. It is a 15 hour audio book and I finished it in two days.

Well-written, interesting plot, easy to get lost in, topped with great narration. What else could I ask for?

I wish it had revealed the journalist's informant. I felt that could have been explored.
I think the story was good, but the narrator's voice just did not fit this novel. I struggled to stay engaged.
