Molto bello. Storia d'amore e thriller, con cane supereroe. Mozzafiato. Anche il peggior criminale non deve sottovalutare la forza delle donne e il valore dei nostri angeli a 4 zampe. ( )

An okay story. Sad, but not as sad as I expected from a Sparks book. ( )

Slow start, but the story gains momentum and roars to a finish. Part romance, part suspense, this is also a love story to a dog. ( )

What an entrenching story. Once again, it is shocking to me that a man can write these fantastic books for women. This one was both a romance and thriller. The story of a woman and her dog and her finding love again. It also involves a man who becomes obsessed with her and stalks her. Very scary thing to endure for any of us. If you have ever had someone act even remotely like this guy to her, you will be able to relate to her character and her fear of this man. Do not read if you cannot handle tear jerkers that involve the fur babies in our lives. ( )

Nicholas Sparks writes really interesting books and his dog characters are outstanding. Highly recommended.

Julie Barenson's young husband left her two unexpected gifts before he died - a Great Dane puppy named Singer and the promise that he would always be watching over her. Now four years have passed. Still living in the small town of Swansboro, North Carolina, twenty-nine-year-old Julie is emotionally ready to make a commitment to someone again. But who?

Should it be Richard Franklin, the handsome, sophisticated engineer who treats her like a queen? Or Mike Harris, the down-to-earth nice guy who was her husband's best friend? Choosing one of them should bring her more happiness than she's had in years. Instead, Julie is soon fighting for her life in a nightmare spawned by a chilling deception and jealousy so poisonous that it has become a murderous desire... ( )
