Book Hungry's on the Scent

This months selection for the Book Hungry club was Scent of the Missing by Susanna Charleson

Here is the description from Amazon:
In the wake of the Oklahoma City bombing, Susannah Charleson clipped a photo from the newspaper: an exhausted canine handler, face buried in the fur of his search-and-rescue dog. A dog lover and pilot with search experience herself, Susannah was so moved by the image that she decided to volunteer with a local canine team and soon discovered firsthand the long hours, nonexistent pay, and often heart-wrenching results they face. 

Still she felt the call, and once she qualified to train a dog of her own, she adopted Puzzle, a strong, bright Golden Retriever puppy who exhibited unique aptitudes as a working dog but who was less interested in the role of compliant house pet. Puzzle's willfulness and high drive, both assets in the field, challenged even Susannah, who had raised dogs for years.

Today I am supposed to offer up some witty insight to the book that was selected for us this month by our very own Cynthia Reese.  Unfortunately, I didn't read it.  Not that I didn't want to, or it didn't interest me.  Quite honestly, I just forgot.  

I know, I feel pretty bad about it too.  

I still plan to read the book.  In fact, I already bought the book.  I just didn't get to the reading part yet. 

So make sure you stop over and see what everyone else thinks of the book, but before you go, did you read it?  If so what did you think.  And since I never have enough books on my TBR pile (which really isn't a pile since I read on my kindle) have you read anything good lately?

Share please.
