Mary Hannah Gallo works with Second Chance Ranch Animal
Rescue to train therapy dogs for traumatized patients. But
when brooding A.J. Parker enters her very carefully
composed life she is suddenly not so in control. Not sure
if it is A.J., the puppy they are training or herself who
is calling out RESCUE ME.
Detective A.J. Parker left undercover work in Atlanta to
join the small-town police force in Tennessee hoping the
easier workload and the solitude of his cabin would keep
him sane. He gets a taste of his old life when an animal
rescue leads to a meth lab and hints of a dangerous drug
The dog rescued by that event is badly traumatized
no name and only treated nicely when pregnant is given the
name Holly, and a chance at a good life. She just needs to
learn a little trust, OK a lot of trust, a few tricks and
maybe she can bring the two opposites that are training
RESCUE ME is delightful ... it is a book filled with love
many levels as well as deep emotional hits that bring pain
and pleasure. Along the way there are a number of
unexpected twists and turns that will take readers to an
unexpected ending. I loved Holly, the rescue dog's, words
of wisdom at the top of each chapter and her love for TV
was so funny, as well as the snippets of her thoughts that
we get to read. Every page is filled with people working
through past pains and toward good, strong futures, so as
we watched Holly grow to find the world is a good place,
we get to see the humans around her learn the same thing.
The romance between A.J. and Mary Hannah is realistic with
ups and downs as their pasts come up and get worked
and the trust builds. Author Catherine Mann writes a
compelling book about rescue dogs in a way that makes you
believe in love for all God's creatures.
A rescued dog returns the favor in the latest Second
