This K-9 will stop at nothing to keep a child safe.
When a little boy is threatened, Officer Daniella Vargas and K-9 partner, Zara, are assigned to pose as his nanny to uncover the culprit’s identity. Suspecting one of the guests in his inn, widower Sam Kavanaugh’s only option is to begrudgingly trust Daniella and Zara to help. But can they solve the case and its mysterious connection to Sam’s late wife before it’s too late?

This is an enjoyable romantic suspense featuring a K-9 officer. Daniella is a good heroine. She is brave and tough and loves her faithful K-9 companion. She is not ready for romance, however, as she has guilt and pain from the past to overcome. Sam is a lodge owner under attack and Daniella is assigned his case and is required to stay on site. Sam has shut his heart to romance since the death of his wife. I like how God has a loving way of healing then both, preparing them for a new venture.
The mystery plot is a bit complex. Someone wants something in the lodge. The suspects include all of those staying at the lodge. Mentink gives us hints but it is not until near the end and a murder happens that the clues come together. The pace is consistent as suspicious activities continue to happen.
I enjoyed this novel. The characters are fine, especially sweet little Oliver. The character development shows how barriers to romance can be broken. The mystery is sufficient while it, along with the romance, is accelerated to a quick conclusion at the end.
Mt rating: 4/5 stars.
About the Author
More from Dana
What a joy to participate in a series with seven other talented authors! A continuity series is a set of books, each written by a different author, and each with its own suspense plot along with an overarching series plot and characters. It’s a very complicated project to complete, but the fantastic part is chatting, collaborating, and sometimes commiserating with other writers. What a rare treat, since most of our work is done alone in dark rooms with computer screens and bottomless cups of coffee! This series was especially fun to write because of the whole wilderness lodge setting which is my favorite type of story. Picture it! Ancient cliff dwellings, a freak electrical storm, twenty-four hours with no power and a killer on the loose! That’s my kind of suspense novel. I hope you will enjoy this multi author series as much as we enjoyed creating it!
