A vet for domestic animals,Ben has a rather quiet life- great partner,fantastic dog and the odd emergency or two. Until a series of deaths lead him to believe that they are deliberate instead of random. Weapon of choice seems to be poison,but the motive is not obvious. So he decides to call in the police to investigate.
Poisonings of animals aren’t exactly high on the list of Constable Tim Geary’s priorities,but since there is a chance it could escalate,he’s going to look into it. Meeting the vet who’s handling it makes Tim wonder how they hadn’t met before since they both live in the same small town. Even though the attraction is immediate, life in it’s own inimitable fashion creates obstacles to throw in the path of love and romance.
Although this is a romantic tale,Drew Zachary has shown life in all it’s ironies and humor. I especially enjoyed his in-depth look at the realities of trying to establish a relationship amidst the friends and colleagues who have to learn to give the couple space to “learn” each other. The gentle humor he puts in here has enlivened the story and it is one to really enjoy reading again.
