If blood, gore and serial killers turn you on, check out OVERDOSE, MERCY, and POISON. If you’re into dark medical humor, check her STAY AWAY FROM MY ER. But if you’re into dogs, the K-9 Heroes series is for you, starting with BECOMING K-9: a bomb dog’s memoir. There’s the Kirkus review:”Excitement, tears, and many chuckles in a winning story about a courageous K-9″”Guinness is an irresistible lead character—smart and steadfast but also soulful and delightfully snarky. While the narrative offers adventure and some tragedy throughout, it also delivers humor and great tenderness. The scenes in Afghanistan, where Guinness is eventually deployed, are portrayed with a visceral grittiness. Readers can practically taste the ever present dust permeating the barren landscape. This is Jones’ first volume in her K-9 Heroes series, and it is a lovely tribute to the brave canine officers in the military.”Book 2, BIONIC BUTTER: A three-Pawed K-9 Hero, is about a mellow Lab who looks for her life’s new meaning after losing a paw in Afghanistan. Book 3, K-9 VIPER, is about a veteran Belgian Malinois who discover there’s more to life than work. Book 4, LOVELY K-9, is about a Springer pup who grew up in jail.For updates, free content and more, check out RadaJones.com. She loves hearing from you.
