Nora Roberts delivers another exciting romantic suspense story with her latest novel The Search. Fiona Bristow is a dog trainer and leads a canine search and rescue team on an island near Seattle. Years earlier, she fought back as a serial killer attempted to abduct her, assisted in his prosecution and moved on to take control of her life. She worked to be independent and not consider herself a victim but a survivor. Her new neighbor Simon comes to her classes to train his uncontrollable puppy and sparks begin to fly between the two. Simon resists his attraction to Fiona and she asserts her independence. A copy-cat killer threatens Fiona and she and Simon work to cope with the danger and find the killer together. Both are strong, multi-faceted characters with lots of chemistry between them and both are are forced beyond their comfort zones to become involved with each other. Adding interest for me was the information about dog training and canine search and rescue that Roberts weaves into the story–another taut thriller form Nora Roberts.
