Enter the world of the Military K-9 Unit
A riveting new series begins!
When the Red Rose Killer leaves his calling card for Staff Sergeant Felicity Monroe, she knows exactly what that means-- she's on his revenge list. Her boss, Master Sergeant Westley James, and K-9 German shepherd Dakota become her guardians, but they'll have to act fast to escape the man who wants her dead.
As a huge fan of Terri Reed's writing, I have been looking forward to reading this book. And it definitely didn't disappoint. It has the perfect mix of romance, suspense, and Christian faith-based elements. The story is intense, riveting, humorous, scary, and inspiring.
The K-9 stories have always had a special spot in my heart, and this story made me appreciate and respect them even more. The dogs play an important role in the story, and Dakota is a hero on his own rights.
Staff Sergeant Felicity Monroe and Master Sergeant Westley James are both strong, capable characters who have deep pain and sorrow in their hearts from their past. Both of them have struggled with their relationships with their parents, both of them have overcome obstacles and made a good life for themselves, lives where they are comfortable in, where they thrive and are successful. All this could come to an end if they would act upon the attraction they feel for each other.
I loved the frenemies to romance theme that was going on here. It gave the story a dash of a thrill, angst, and humor to see Felicity and Westley find a way over the walls they had built around themselves to protect their hearts, and thus their future lives in the air force.
The danger surrounding the base with the serial killer on the loose is constant, the intensity is high, and the attacks and crimes keep piling up, creating confusion and distraction. The series continues with the hunt for the serial killer, thus a little cliffhanger at the end, but the crimes in this story were satisfactorily solved.
A captivating and intriguing story that was easy to get lost in. The characters were alluring, their faith in God inspiring, their strength and willingness to serve was heartening, their connection to each other was true, honest and fervent. The scare and terror the killer created was a constant factor yet the military staff handled the cases with cool, calm, professionalism that was impossible not to admire.
I enjoyed the story immensely, looking forward to more in the series.
