Publisher's Summary

Suspicion of guilt...

When Special Agent in Charge, Max West, and his K-9 partner, Opal, look into a series of bombings in Northern California, horse trainer Katerina Garwood instantly seems suspicious. As the ex-fiancee of a man tied to the criminal Dupree family, Katerina may know more than she's letting on - especially since the infamous syndicate is targeting her. And Max isn't sure he can believe her when she says she knows nothing. Despite his reservations, though, he can't deny his attraction...or the impulse to protect her. And with the criminals closing in, Max must separate the truth from lies, or he and Katerina may not live to share tomorrow....

Schlocky and Stereotypical

I bought this expecting a K-9 themed mystery--don't be fooled. It's a silly romance with next to no actual writing about the work of the dog team. Max is an FBI officer, perfect in every way except he's never met the woman of his dreams. Katerina, 10 years younger, and nearly killed in an explosion, catches his eye because--because it's that kind of book. Katerina is a devout Christian, and of course Max rediscovers his faith too, because--because it's that kind of book. No one thinks it a poor idea for an FBI agent to become romantically involved with someone who is initially a suspect in a major crime. No one thinks that it's a poor idea for Katerina, recently dumped by her criminal husband, to leap into a relationship with this man about whom she knows nothing at all except that he saved her life. Transference, anyone? He falls in love with her because, well, she's so brave and cute and vulnerable while he saves her life. Transference, anyone? And poor Opal, the valiant bomb-sniffing boxer, is an afterthought in this book, barely mentioned, unrealistically portrayed when she is mentioned, and incidental to the plot. So if you're looking for anything about actual K-9 work, or for a good mystery, or for characters of any depth, or anything other than a trite romance that's REALLY a poor idea for the characters involved, this is so not the book for you.

Horrible

Gaslighting, verbal abuse, and cognitive dissonance masked as a "romance". Please don't recommend this to younger women. So unhealthy.

Good but same storyline.

Kind of was the same story line as the other ones I’ve read/listened to. Good, just same story line as the other two.
