Snowflake’s Gift
by Lindsay McKenna
 
Two veterans—one human, one canine—have returned to Montana to recover from the traumas of war. Former Army Ranger Nick Conway depended on his WMD dog Snowflake to help him navigate IEDs on the battlefield.
Now he needs his best friend to help him cope with his PTSD and acclimate to civilian life. When he meets Holly McGuire and agrees to help her deliver meals to the elderly, her inner light calls to him, but his demons hold him back from giving in to his attraction. But Snowflake takes an immediate shine to the kindhearted Holly—and he has never led Nick down the wrong path.  

Review

First thing that nabbed me here was not one but two veterans Nick and his WMD Snowflake.  I love animals and I totally get that they can get PTSD too. It happens not only from war but even abuse can cause an animal to be affected.

This story hits a lot of my emotional triggers with feeding shut-ins and the charity itself. Holly is an incredibly strong woman battling with her own issues while helping others. Especially the one who fights it the most Nick.


Their efforts to get the feral dog Lady to trust enough to allow them near brings me to tears even as she gains weight and gets healthier with there efforts.


A beautiful love story in the spirit of the Holiday season. Keep the tissues handy and enjoy this wonderful read.

SEAL’s Christmas Dream
by J.M. Madden

When Veterinarian Willow James’ office is broken into, it’s natural that she turn to her soul mate, former Navy SEAL K9 handler Joe Flynn, to track down the  culprits. The trail leads to a notorious Pit-Bull fighting ring. It may take a  Christmas miracle and a helpful nudge from an old partner to get everyone home
safely.

Review

Right off the bat I have to say I love Willow and Joe and their every growing family. More pets the merrier and now with their daughter that will only expand I’m sure.

Joe continues his collecting of all types of strays. This time however he found one he couldn’t just bring in. A young boy and his dog have been hanging around near the clinic. The dog is undernourished and Joe scared them off with a can of food but by leaving cans near the spot they know the boy gets them.

The boy comes to the clinic carrying his dog, and much is learned about him. Mateo keeps his dog away from his family and he had gotten tangled in his chain unable to get to his water or food.

To pay for his dog Ranvir’s treatment, the boy starts working at Willow’s clinic. Mateo wants to be a Vet like her and help animals not like the rest of his family. Things brought to light when Joe and Maya bring what appears to be a bait dog used in pitt bull fighting to the clinic.

I cried again, for the dogs for Mateo and well for everything. I laughed at the animal’s antics and I totally loved this holiday story, it is filled with love, charity and hope.


5 Contented Purrs for J.M.!



Noel’s Puppy Power
by KaLyn Cooper

Tanner Hill is better at communicating with animals than women. That might be
why he hasn’t had a second date in over two years. He’s also been extremely busy with his kennel that has become the premier training facility, specializing in supplying dogs to veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Then again, there is this psychologist he can’t get out of his head, or his heart.
Dr. Bailey Conrad would never allow the loss of half her right leg to an IED in Iraq to stop her. Every day at the VA hospital, she sees patients who have lost so much more to the war effort. It’s her goal in life to help as many vets as possible to find a ‘new normal’, because she knows firsthand, it’s the internal scars that can be the most difficult to heal.

Review


This book starts with Bailey arriving in time for a puppy or two to make their appearance. In the first few minutes after Apollo’s daughter is born Love takes root and not just between Bailey and Noel. Tanner definitely has more than a professional interest in Bailey. Proving it as he escorts Bailey to her car by asking, or was he telling her she is his date for Case’s New Year’s Party.


With Bailey training for the Paralympic Team and Tanner going back to school they have difficulty coming together. Once they do, it is both an emotional and sensual explosion. Fan’s self, and there is no sex in this book!


We also see many puppy antics that will make you giggle just like I did.


KaLyn makes you feel everything her characters are going through and this book is emotional with highs and lows. There is a lot of information hidden in it about PTSD and Veteran Suicide. Rough topics that need to be brought out in any forum we can get them in. Every book is a big Thank You to all our Serving and Veteran Military for their service and sacrifices.

Lindsay McKenna lives her life as a risk taker, and it shines through the books she loves to write; romance, adventure and suspense. She started writing at age thirteen and continues to hone her writing skills to this day. She sold her first romance novel in 1981. The rest is history. Because she went into the military, this experience became the backbone of her writing—she is credited with writing the first military romance novel (Captive of Fate, 1983, Silhouette Special Edition) and has created a thriving sub-genre within the romance field! As a New York Times Best Selling author, she has sold 23 million books and in 32 foreign languages in her career thus far. Her many experiences in the U.S. Navy are backdrop for her understanding of the military in general, and also her very successful Morgan’s Mercenaries, which is an ongoing series in Silhouette to this day! Forty-five books strong!
Lindsay has gone Indie in 2015 and has created a new family saga on par with Morgan’s Mercenaries It is known as the DELOS SERIES. There will be paperback and eBooks created under Blue Turtle Publishing, her company for her fans. Readers who love Morgan and his family are bound to fall in love with the Culver family. Delos is romantic suspense, which Lindsay is well known for. It took her five years to create and bring DELOS to her readers. It was worth the wait, but we’ll let you decide that. Lindsay loves to hear from her readers and loves to know what they’d like to see her write next.
