Going home wasn’t part of his plan …
Agreeing to travel home to Maine to hunt down Ketch, a K9 dog the system had lost track of, wasn’t an easy decision for Zane. It meant facing his drunk of a father, his cold older brother and, worst of all, Holly, his kid brother’s widow—who used to be his girlfriend.
Finding Ketch looked to be the easiest part of this dysfunctional homecoming. Only he wasn’t the only one hunting Ketch.
Holly has been through a whirlwind of emotions in the last few years. But the good thing in all of this was the hope that Zane would finally come home again. They had a history to clear up and a future to forge … she hoped.
A call for help brings the injured shepherd to Holly’s doorstep, plus a hunter looking to finish what he started. All thoughts of a future with Zane are threatened now and forever as the hunter decides two-legged prey are just as good as four-legged ones.
Zane by Dale Mayer
Another heartwarming story of saving a K9 military dog. They saved thousands of our soldiers lives often losing theirs.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
I absolutely loved this book. I sat down and couldn't stop reading it. I love this series. It is such a heart-breaking one. Each book touching on one war-dog. There are twelve war-dogs that have gone missing in some way or another. A wounded vet is assigned to one dog to locate and see if the living conditions are such for an honored hero. What each dog has gone through after service to the country is just a tear-jerker. This one had my teary eyed a lot.
Zane is assigned to go to Maine and locate Katch. A large shepard mix who is suffering from PTSD. Unfortunately the dog was last to be in the company of a hunter. It is the worst place for a dog suffering from PTSD to be. Zane doesn't want to go to Maine as he is from there. His ex-girlfriend, Holly married his baby brother after they broke up and he left for the military. His brother is dead now but Holly seemed to want to get back together with Zane and he isn't exactly sure how he feels about being with her now.
Holly is a veterinarian. She has never stopped loving Zane but when they were younger, she couldn't deal with Zane going into the military. Holly is no longer the selfish young girl that she was but she is afraid that Zane will leave again. These two come together to locate and help Katch. Unfortunately Katch is being hunted down and tortured. As the story goes on, reading the dual POV format really helps to understand Holly's side of their history and how she is dealing with the situation of him being there and possibly leaving afterwards. I really needed this as I initially had a hard time in understanding her actions.
The events that go on throughout this story will keep you glued to your e-reader as well. The action starts right from the beginning and doesn't stop. Just when you think it does, watch out. I highly recommend this to everyone. You really don't have to read the prior stories but I would. Each one will tug on your heartstrings for both the dog and the man.
Zane: The K9 Files 03
K9s. Used in the military for rescue, for explosive and drug detection, to save lives. 12 dogs were lost in the process of them being retired from service and returned to the United States. Former SEALS, themselves discharged from service due to medical reasons, are recruited to find and confirm the K9s and ensure they are safe. Zane is sent to Maine to locate Katch. This is also the area that Zane grew up and a former girl friend still lives. Finding Katch was fairly easy. Protecting the War Dog and determining the why of the attack, not so much. And there is Holly.
