Few authors create a lasting impact in readers mind and Luke Gracias is one among them. We read and appreciated his last two books which were sequel: The Devil’s Prayer and No light Without Shadow. The earlier 2 books were on Environmental topic and historical thrillers. The expectation was that his 3rd book will be on same genre, but a twist came when we got to know his latest book is a story about a woman who marries a dog whisperer. Sounds interesting?
