Bodyguard

GIVEAWAY
MCCOY, SHIRLEE
BODYGUARD

Safeguarding the witness

Close to bringing the Dupree crime family that murdered his parents to justice, FBI agent Ian Slade wants to track the leader -- not protect the man's niece. But with Esme Duree's uncle determined to silence her before she can testify against her brother, Ian and his K-9 partner are duty bound to guard her. Even if her family ties make him dobut her innocence. But as he and Esme fight to survive the chase through the Florida Everglades, it becomes clear to Ian that she's nothing like her family. And soon, Ian must choose between the vengeance he's craved for so long and a future rich in forgiveness and hope.

My Review:

Every time I read a book by Shirlee McCoy I think she can't get any better but she consistently ups her game with each new release. So I stand by my claim -- this is the best book yet by this talented author...for now. :-)

Dare I start by swooning over King? Belgian Malinois extraordinaire who gives the best K-9 hugs ever! He's definite bodyguard material but he has an upbeat personality and a sense of humour too. Yes, I'm gushing over a dog. But that's because he's a canine rock star!

And his human partner -- Ian -- is pretty yummy too. Despite his prejudice towards the Dupree family, he treats Esme with compassion. That doesn't mean he doesn't impose his iron will on her at times. Or struggle inwardly with the fact that she's related to the man who killed his parents. Love the way McCoy develops their relationship. There are some great heart-to-heart chats as well as light-hearted teasing -- and that includes some fun human/canine scenes.

Intrigue, romance and the thrill of the chase make Bodyguard a read-in-one-sitting kind of suspense. It's also the fifth in the six book Classified K-9 Unit continuity series. It could be read as a standalone but I think will make more of an overall impact if you've read the books in order.
