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-fiancé 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...
Classified K-9 Unit: These lawmen solve the toughest cases with the help of their brave canine partners.
What a great continuity series! I get so excited to see a new book coming out each month. I love looking for clues relating to the over-arcing suspense that will carry through all six books (this is Book Three) but I also enjoy the fact that each book reads very well as a standalone. Special Agent brings both romantic and suspense resolution for Max and Katerina...and Opal, bless her big ol' drooling heart!
So, aside from being enamored with the beautiful boxer on the cover, I think her partner is pretty droolworthy (doggy pun intended!) as well. Max is intense and single-minded when it comes to crime solving which puts up barriers where Katerina is concerned. He doesn't trust her -- or to be more accurate, he doesn't want to trust her but there's something about the spunky heroine that's hard to resist. And that makes Max a tad tetchy. Love me a moody hero with strong protective tendencies.
Katerina's whole world has been turned upside down thanks to her erstwhile ex-fiancé and she's struggling to get on with her life. Which is kind of hard to do with a target on her back. There's plenty of action, a ton of danger and a puzzling mystery to solve. Not to mention the ups and downs of a romance brewing between this pig-headed couple. Perfect fodder for a page-turner of a story!
