Review of Dog Days by Donna Ball

When a lost dog is brought to Raine Stockton in the tenth book of the series, Dog Days,it’s the end of summer, the busiest time of the year in Hansonville, NC. The white golden retriever is covered in blood, but otherwise healthy. When the dog escapes from Raine’s care, she’s eventually found with her owner at the bottom of a gorge. The woman is close to death and eventually dies, but Raine suspects there’s more going on than the accident her husband claims it is. But an encounter at the local fair could end up costing Raine her life when she heads off on her own to ensure the safety of her dogs.

Raine is without Miles and Melanie in this story. They’re in Rio visiting with Miles’ ex-wife, who has decided she wants to sue Miles for custody of their daughter. Add in that Raine’s ex-husband Buck marries his new girlfriend without telling Raine and she’s not in a good place emotionally. She’s still suffering from PTSD after the events of the last book, Home of the Brave,and she’s seriously overworked. If she didn’t have a new helper at Dog Daze Boarding and Training, she’d be out of business. But in the end, Raine is starting to realize what really matters to her, which is a big step in the right direction.
