Book Review: Conrad by Anne L. Parks

by Anne L. Parks

Army Ranger K-9 handler Conrad Matthews (and his dog, Georgie) are the first responders into perilous operations—until a terrorist’s bullet shatters his entire world. His career destroyed, his dog lost, and the beautiful doctor who saved his life out of reach, Conrad vows to reclaim the life he’s lost. First on his agenda: locating his four-legged best friend.

Julie “Doc” Sutton returns from her deployment in Syria as an Army Reserve physician, determined to rebuild her medical practice, her life, and her broken heart. Looking to fill a solitary void, she adopts a retired military service dog.

When Conrad learns Georgie is being fostered by the Brotherhood Protectors, he travels to Eagle Rock, Montana—and comes face to face with the woman he left in Syria who still owns his heart. But Doc’s world is in chaos from threats against her life. With her would-be assassin closer than ever, Conrad vows to protect her—even if it means sacrificing himself to save her.

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

“Hot date with Rosie, sir?” Bart asked, raising his hand and spreading out his fingers.

… she didn’t need the reminder that her husband wanted a woman who was basically the town bicycle—most men in the area had ridden her at one time or another.

How she had ever thought that man was her lifelong partner was a mystery to her. She chalked it up to youth and stupidity.

You saved a lost, wandering soul, Dr. Sutton. And released him in a way that was honorable.

My Review:

Conrad was a quick, action-packed, and eventful read that started in the heat of Syria and ended in a small town in Montana.  I enjoyed the premise, characters, and easy to follow storyline that included a bit of everything - heartbreak, humor, steam, a sweet dog, betrayal, danger, and suspense.
