Since there is no mention in the description...

There is ABSOLUTELY NO MENTION of the Christian undertone/overtone in the short blurb, I figured I'd give other listeners a heads-up.

It had the potential to be a good suspense novel... unfortunately it was turned into nothing more than a mediocre Christian romance. And it's obvious that the author has zero experience/knowledge of law enforcement or K9 handling.

There were far too many references to god (i.e., relying on god, being where god had placed her, knowing god would protect her and her child, etc.), prayer, Christianity, and faith in general. It's supposed to be a K9 FBI/murder/suspense book, with a dash of romance; yet everything that happens returns to god/prayer. She's being shot at and her life is being threatened, she's under the protection of a team of FBI agents, but god will be the one to protect her.

At times it felt peachy. After the umpteenth reference to god and prayer within the first few chapters, I stopped listening and had hoped to return it, unfortunately I wasn't able to do so. The only reason I ended up finishing listening was because I didn't want to search for another book while driving and had already wasted a credit on it.

Aside from all of that, the narration was pleasant (albeit her little boy voice is fairly irritating)!

suspenseful but continues

I liked the story but was a bit disappointed in the ending. I was hoping for more. I will probably buy one more in this series to see how it all ends.

Do not bother!

This book is advertised as fictional account of FBI canine unit and the team members. Sample starts with team attempting to arrest a crime/drug lord & an agent is kidnapped. It very quickly devolves into an unbelievable & unrealistic romance between a guilt ridden agent and the woman in his protective custody. Canines are almost secondary to the storyline. The dialogue is laden with prayers to God, thanks to God etc...extremely disappointing.

Rushed ending

I was enjoying this book mostly, but the ending was too rushed. That just took the enjoyment out of the build up. Overall, the characters could have been developed more. Like grandpa. But the ending was just so rushed that I was left very disappointed.

This series is Christian Romance w/ FBI K9

NOT a happy listener! I had no idea that this series is more about emotional flip-flopping over relationships than the K9/ law enforcement I was looking for. It has a lot of religious thoughts and statements throughout the book, and although I'm Christian, I dislike like not being told that it's a strong part of a book. However, what I found most annoying is the constant relationship thoughts of I want but can't, Maybe I will, but no. Should I?, but no, and on and on it went with both the MC's. If you take out those bits, I'm guessing the 6-hour book would be about 4-hours., and would have enjoyed it, as the K9/Law part was interesting. I truly did try, made it through the first book, but gave up in the early/mid-part of book 2. Sadly, I purchased all 6 books in the sale so, I'm out that money.

The Gauridian

could have been a good story appropriate characters but very quickly turns so sappy that it just took away from everything

Good Classified K-9 Story

I selected this book because of the title and there are dogs in the story helping people and searching for murderer. A fellow FBI agent is kidnapped and witness disappears in the beginning of the story and Leo Gallagher will not stop until he finds both of them. Leo has a trusty K-9 partner named True and go to question Alicia Duncan about what she witnessed and protects her and her son from the murderer.

I LOVED this audiobook.

Exciting from the first paragraph. Interest and story never lagged. The writer writes in word pictures. Ofcourse the dog is wonderful and adds another element of interest.
I learned a lot from this book.

My thoughts

I enjoyed this audible book. It revealed how we as individuals blame ourselves for things that are not our fought and we need God to help us to forgive ourselves.

This was a very “nice” story. It was a mystery of sorts.

Though it wasn’t a who fone it it was a where is he? The chemistry between the main characters and for once the heroine does not do what she has been told not to do which puts her in danger. No unnecessary sexual content. Just a good suspense drama.
