“K-9 Defense by Elizabeth Heiter puts readers continuously on edge…This suspenseful story features a strong female character and caring hero. [A]dding a dog to the story makes all the characters come alive as readers see their emotional pain, fear, hope, and a desire to heal.”
–Crimespree Magazine

“K-9 Defense stands out not only for its superb, on-point research, but also for the pathos of watching damaged souls, man and animal, helping to heal each other. A one-sitting triumph of a read.”

“Set in the Alaskan wilderness, K-9 Defense is a fast-paced and suspense-laden romance.”
–Book Reviews and More by Kathy

“Oh, [K-9 Defense] hits hard. It is filled with emotions – regrets, survival guilt, emotional pain, expectations, hope, love, desire, fear – every moment of the tale counts as a peak as it is either in the hight of the suspense, in middle of an a-ha moment of growing, learning, and forgiving yourself, or in the midst of surviving the elements, or falling helplessly, completely, in love. This story kept me entertained and keen on finding out what happens next, so much so that I found it unputdownable.”
