Protect and Serve

GIVEAWAY

REED, TERRI
PROTECT AND SERVE

Person of interest...

When rookie K-9 officer Shane West and his German shepherd partner find the lead police dog trainer murdered, he's determined to bring the killer to justice. But then he discovers Gina Perry hiding nearby -- a pretty junior trainer who had the motive, means and opportunity to kill her boss. Gina insists her troubled brother is the real murderer...and this isn't the first time he's killed. And when Gina's brother comes after her, Shane is assigned to protect her and uncover the truth. Suddenly, Shane -- a cop who always hoped to join a big city force -- vows to stay by Gina's side as a murderer lurks in the small-town shadows.

Rookie K-9 Unit: These lawmen solve the toughest cases with the help of their brave canine partners.

My Review:

Sqqqueeeallll! New continuity series centred around K-9s....and this one has puppies!!!!! Don't know what has me more in a tizzy -- the canines or the hero. That's a good conundrum for dog lovin' bibliophile to be in. Reed does a great job of setting up the intrigue for the series. There's more than one mystery to solve and some suspense threads will carry over into the next books though there's closure for Gina and Shane in this one. Love the even blend of romance and suspense. Both build to an exciting conclusion and while I'm blissfully satisfied on behalf of Gina and Shane's happily ever after, the author has given me a lot to think about where other characters are concerned. Can't wait to read their stories and see if my amateur sleuthing skills are up to the task of solving the major suspense thread.

  3. Glad you liked this one Kav, isn't it good??? And I knew you'd love both two footed & four footed K-9's equally (especially those puppies) :-)

    I've both read this and ordered the next one already (Truth and Consequences) because I'm so excited for this series! And I NEED to know/find out the connecting theme :-)

    2. When you open the cover of Terri's book, it will list all the other books in this continuity series....author, title and when it comes out. Yes, next one is by Dana Mentink! Since I'm on her "preferred reviewer" list, I'll get first dibs on this. I am going to be buying all the rest, it's such a good series so far and I've only read the one!

    3. Ohhhh....just looked inside the cover and see the line up for the next four books. And yep, Dana Mentink is June and the Lynette Eason, Shirlee McCoy and Valerie Hansen. Awesome authors all!
