Mattie is an intelligent and skilled main character, but with flaws and past demons to work through just like everybod else.

he character development added to a tal without taking away from the main investigation.

Mattie and Kobo stayed with the body.

synopsi is so accurate you are right there with Mattie and Kobo.Dr. Walker leaves at once to take food, tents and other supplies.

Thi best part of his series is the elationship between Mattie and Robo, her GSD K9 dog.

And I give Mizushima credit, she wants the fun of raising teenagers perfectly.

I like Mizushima 's books: they are lighter mysteries, less gore and macho swagger, but not exactly what I kno of as a 'cozy'.

Wors than book one but it actually look like the write is holding back, being safe in her writing.

I am surprised to kno that Stalking Ground addresses almost all those points I noticed in the irst, and in addition is an even bigge, tighter, more thrilling read.Mattie 's relationship with her K-9 partner Robo is a very mportant part of this autobiography ( and thi series) -- and not just because of the mysteries they solve.

Mattie and Robo are n't the only two in town; we also are privileged to watch busy veterinarian Cole Walker on his rounds, as he volunteers for search and rescue, and -- most importantly -- how he and his daughters adjust to th particularl difficult divorce in which his wife left the family.

When Mattie drew up beside him, he stumble to look into her eyes.

****** Stalking Ground by Margaret Mizushima is the seventh nove in the Timber Creek K-9 Mystery series.

fifth essa, Killing Trail, was a thrilling en to what has roved to be n exciting new series for me and his one was no exception.

As the clues to the crime emerge the danger and apprehension raised my heart rate higher and higher with each step Mattie and Robo come to catching killer!
