Properly trained a man can be a dog’s best friend.
This is the story of Fiona Bristow and her three dogs. She lives in a little cottage on an island off the coast of Washington state. Her dogs are trained to be rescue dogs and she runs a dog training business. This sounds like a good life. But Fiona is the only survivor of a serial killer called “The Red Scarf Killer”. That man is still in prison but he has trained another man to copy his style and this man is coming after Fiona because she was the one that got away. To complicate matters, there is also a man named Simon who has recently moved onto the island and his young dog, Jaws, needs training. Could Simon be the one to share the rest of Fiona’s life? This book is especially good for how it weaves together a murder mystery with a romance in a very interesting way.

By the bull that bought me, I do not know! That thing has killed six times in a night. Let him go out no more.
This is a collection of classic stories about Mowgli, a boy who is saved from a tiger as a baby and raised by wolves in the wilds of India. He learns the ways of the jungle from many teachers including Baloo the bear, Bagheera the black panther and Gray Brother, a wolf. He also has an enemy, Shere Khan the tiger. After many attempts Mowgli finally defeats him in the story Mowgli’s Brothers. My favorite story is called “The King’s Ankus.” It is a story about a golden object left in the jungle and found by thieves. As Mowgli follows their trail, he finds that all the men kill each other for the possession of this object. Along with the fables about the animals of the jungle, Kipling has also included poems in the book which are enjoyable.
