THE PROTECTOR'S MISSION
Honoring a promise to a fallen comrade, former army medic David Evans heads to Arizona to check up on the soldier's sister. But as his train pulls into Desert Valley, David witnesses a drug run gone wrong and narrowly avoids the bullets flying his way. And when the police show up, he discovers the investigating officer is the woman he's supposed to look after. With a fiercely protective K-9 partner and a new badge, Whitney Godwin insists she can take care of herself and her infant daughter. But the criminals want both David and Whitney permanently silenced, so David will stop at nothing to protect the family he yearns to join.
Rookie K-9 Unit: These lawmen solve the toughest cases with the help of their brave canine partners
A love story, that seems like kismet delivered by her late brother, in a midst of a small town crime spree, with all the odds against the rookies of the K-9 unit.
I loved how Whitney and David got together, there's just something utterly beautiful, romantic, and serendipitous about how they met. And even though the connection between them is strong, the attraction is there, and they genuinely like each other, the road to be together isn't easy, automatic, or without obstacles.
The faith both Whitney and David has in God, and the trust they have, for Him to guide them, in the moment of need and danger, is reassuring.
Even though I think this book can be read as a stand alone, there's ongoing investigations of several crimes, that started in the previous book, book one of the series, and I believe will be going on until the end of the series. There's fast paced action, crimes committed, drug cartel on a loose, and lives are in danger, as David helps Whitney to solve the case. It was tense, chaotic, and fearful, since it seems both David and Whitney are targeted especially by the criminals.
The crimes that started in this tale, are solved within the book, but the previously happened murders are still open cases. Interesting concept, and great cast of characters, with multiple authors, that are carrying the series, and doing a stellar job with it. The circumstances within the small town, the police station, the K-9 unit, and the rookies themselves, are all intriguing matters in the series, and holds the interest high, I can't wait for the next book in the series
