I am a Book Blogger and I accepted to read The Brindle from Free and Fast Reviews. I read this book thru Kindle Unlimited. If you ever watched Turner and Hooch with Tom Hanks and like it, it personally is one of my favorite movies, than you will absolutely love ths book! I gave this book 5 stars because of the emotional impact it had on me. Yes, I got very angry, and once again was amazed at how evil people can be for power and money. I had the Kleenex out many times, but you will have to read the book to find out why they were needed. This book takes place about 50% of the time in Georgia and 50% of the time in California, hence, it fit into the Southwestern location for our blog. I personally own a Brindle Mini Boxer, and when the book talks about the characteristics of the Brindle being smart, I can vouch that is so true. I've had many dogs in my life. but our Brindle is certainly the smartest. I was happy to see that the Author put a warning in the very beginning of the book concerning the violence that will be in the book. I have to say at first I was a little put off with it, but it really had to e in the book to understand the plot completely. Although there was the violence part, the Author chose to leave out the vulgar language that I'm sure would normally be there.. thank you for that. After reading the book, I read about the Author's history, and Sir, my hat is off to you, to be able to shake off your hard start in life , and decide to reach into yourself and express yourself thru your talents..... a little like Kitty, I would say. Certainly looking forward to your next book, I hope it takes place in the Southwest, so we can read and review it on our blog. Keep on Keep on writing. In the beginning of the book there were a few grammar errors, but I certainly quickly forgot about them after I got into the plot of the book.

Life is a struggle, we all know this. But if you adore animals you will love this one. We all know real life story's can be hard, and reality stinks at times but it tests our metal, and animals are no different. We all love a hero that supersedes all and this is how the Author wrote it, it happens in life to all of us, life can break you or make you and along the way the experience is for us . But for others who witness it, the strength is gained by all. Its life. Just like human souls, animals have souls as well. I know this... I have been on haunted cases where cats remain after their death. Only deep emotions cause this, and we have life after death. Animals are blessings to us all, and we are all so lucky to be loved by them. They travel with us, along our roads of life and we feel loved with them by our side. I have had 2 cats save my life, each attacked an intruder of my home that then ran out. Two different cats, two different times, two different homes. For it to happen once was a miracle, but twice... they both saved my life! We love them and they feel the same about us. Although this book by the J.Jennings Melton is a fictitious story it could very well be real, and perhaps is for many animals. We are all here for a reason, our own reason, and we are here to win or lose and its the same for animals. This story is about overcoming horrible situations. And in the end after all the struggles, after all is risked, what matters is what you risked all for, was right. In life as in death you can be a hero and a winner, even if life itself has been risked. It is true after all....If you don't live for something, you will die for nothing. ~Marisa Anderson

About the Author ▸ J Jennings Melton

J. Jennings Melton was born in South Bend, the county of St. Joseph Indiana, in 1979. He lived, as a child, in Texas, Northern Indiana and Tennessee. Raised by a drug-addicted father, he would spend many of his teen years incarcerated. It was in juvenile and penal institutions where he developed a love for literature and a passion for writing. Upon release, the author enrolled in college while on parole in Knoxville, Tennessee. The Brindle is the first of many works to come. Look forward to my new book “Love Letters and Lugers”, is the story of one man’s undying devotion and more powerful than the human heart seems capable of.
