Dark Summer by Iris Johansen, Read by Joyce Bean
Well, I made it to Disk 7 and just couldn't take it anymore. I mean, really, I was rolling my eyes as I listened to this in the car. I've loved Johansen before, but this was just too much. Dogs who have been raised by an Apache medicine man have super powers and can cure people just by being around them. Um, sure. And, of course, the female vet falls for the ex-Navy SEAL who has been apprenticed to the shaman. Oh, geez. I just couldn't take the dramatic conversations, the horrible Irish accent of one of the characters, and and stoic gentleness of the rebel dog owner. Ugh.
