My very first read of D.D Ayres hasn’t been disappointing, yet “Physical Forces” is definitely missing a spark.


The concept of a pet detective seems novel and add in a K-9 Search and Rescuer to the equation, the plot is good, the concept is neat, but I missed the chemistry between Macayla Burkett and Oliver Kelly and that emotional connection of a pair that would jump off the pages of the book. Individually I liked them both.

“Physical Forces” is a one time read for me. Would I entertain reading D. D Ayers again? Absolutely. Like I said, narration was good, storyline was entertaining, just the wow factor was missing for me.

Received a copy from St. Martin’s Paperbacks via NetGalley for an honest review.
