Seek and Find

GIVEAWAY

MENTINK, DANA
SEEK AND FIND

Killer headline...

Reporter Madison Coles wants to write an expose on the crime spree rocking Desert Valley, Arizona -- but the small town's residents and police are tight-lipped. Even when Madison herself is attacked, the only help she can get is protection from rookie K-9 officer James Harrison and his trusty bloodhound. Suspicious of the reporter's motives, the handsome cop keeps her at arm's length. But the more Madison's life is threatened, the more focused she is on finding the truth -- and the closer she gets to James. Can he help her find the story without them both ending up in the obituary pages?

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

My Review:

Hawk thrilled me to my toes. Still does, as a matter of fact. I fell for him hard. Those dreamy bloodshot eyes and satiny soft droopy ears! Be. Still. My. Heart. And those piercing looks that reflect the depths of his soul. He's not perfect, mind you. He can be a bit brooding at times -- especially when he's denied access to food...any kind of food.  And all that saliva -- but really I'm not the kind of girl to let something like a little drool stand in the way of my true love. I can also overlook his paranoia over squirrels mocking him. Hawk is sweet perfection even if the author has labeled him "a nose with a dog attached."

What? You're interested in my opinion of the human hero? Pshaw! He's nice enough, I suppose, if you go for the all-business-except-for-the-twinkle-in-his-eye-that-hints-at-something-more kind of guy. And he speaks Dog. That's a swoonworthy trait in any man as far as I'm concerned. But he doesn't speak reporter -- in fact he doesn't like reporters at all. Unfortunately Madison is a reporter and she needs protecting. Such a lovely romantical dilemma. There's plenty of action, an intriguing suspense and a sweet romance. You might just say this one is a howling success. :-)

Oh -- and FYI - Seek and Find is part of the Rookie K-9 Unit continuity series -- one book release each month for six months. Totally reads well as a standalone -- Madison and James get their man and a happily ever after though there are still a few open-ended story threads that need to be tied up. Looking forward to book four -- Honor and Defend by Lynette Eason.

  7. Bwahahaha!! I needed a good laugh. Best review ever! Not entering this one only because our library is so good about getting these series and I don't want to take away someone else's chance. I couldn't help but comment on the review, though.

  8. Kav I didn't read your whole review only the part about Hawk, but you had me howling with laughter to my hearts content already! Since I'm going to be reviewing this for Dana, I decided not read the rest of the review and possibly spoil it for myself. I'll check back on it when I'm done :-)
