Protecting the single mom
When a fellow FBI agent is kidnapped and a protected witness vanishes, Leo Gallagher will stop at nothing to find them both. So when he discovers a link between the case and a single mother in Wyoming, Leo and his trusty K-9 partner rush to question Alicia Duncan. Could she be the key to locating the missing persons? Not if a killer has anything to say about it. Someone is determined to keep Alicia from talking, so Leo and his chocolate Lab must keep her and her little boy safe on their family ranch. With danger lurking around every corner, Leo must work overtime to not lose another person who's important to him.
Classified K-9 Unit: these lawmen solve the toughest cases with the help of their brave canine partners.
Squuueeeallll. New Love Inspired Suspense continuity series! With K-9s!!!!! I'm so ecstatic. And Terri Reed does an awesome job of starting things off right from the prologue which sets the stage for the continuous suspense and introduces readers to all the law enforcement players. Woot! And I love that the whole team is actively involved. Can't wait to read each of their stories.
Leo and True are the heroes of Guardian. Perfect title-tie-in by the way. I'm not sure who I fell for harder -- the two-legged or the four-legged heart-throb. Edging towards the chocolate lab, I think. :-) No worries though, Alicia is more enamoured with Leo than True. Romance isn't high on her list of priorities...especially with a killer stalking her! Intrigue and danger lurk on every page, but can't quite squelch the growing attraction between Leo and Alicia. But they both struggle with leaving the past behind and trusting God with their future. Deliciously complicated stuff to contemplate when not dodging bullets.
If you are not familiar with continuity series, there is an over arcing suspense thread that is not solved as it plays out over six books. However, the immediate suspense is solved, new clues are collected to carry over into future stories and, of course, the hero and heroine get their happily ever after.
Awesome start to a stellar new series.
