Rowan came to California searching for a missing retired K-9 and it was personal. A vicious fire just went through the area making the task much more difficult. The terrain was unstable, the fire destroyed evidence and Rowans gait was far from normal while he was still recovering from his injuries. He met Brandi early on but she was guarded and still dealing with her loss of her close grandmother, her home, as well as her pregnant dog. Brandi was gone during the fire so she is coping with guilt about not being there , while the mystery increases as veiled threats turn into gunshots while Brandi tries to figure this out as well. Rowan is up for the challenge and just in time. I love the way this author deals with people. This book is part of a series which just keeps getting better and better. The epilogue talks of another rescue, this one in Texas which sounds just as exciting!

(4.5) Loved this one. I wish there was more of Hershey but when he is on the pages I am all in. Rowan our wounded ex military who works for Titanium Corp is on the search for Hershey, in fire devastated California. He brings strength, compassion and intelligence to this story. Brandi, who he runs into on his search, works for a Stem cell research Lab and has suffered numerous loss and heart break. I was a little flummoxed to her response when first meeting Rowan. Not the hesitation, heck they are strangers, but when he asked if she was searching for a lost pet. Dale does an exemplary job laying out the devastation from the fire through Rowans eyes. I felt like I could see it, feel the loss. There is a mystery, well done enough that I thought several people who were supposed to be "good" would turn out to be in on some of it. I love when I read a book at has heroes 4 legged and 2, but the cherry on top was the intrigue, the mystery - not angst between the couple. I am thrilled to receive this arc and freely volunteer my thoughts and opinions. Thank you Dale Mayer, thank you Booksprout.

This series always got me excited, a rescue mission to find/save the war dog, and this time it's a mission for Rowan to find Hershey, but everything is getting more complicated when there are potshots and dead bodies following them. Yes this book is definitely a page-turner with all the mystery and suspense in every corner, a perfect amount of suspense and sweetness, and a cute wonderful bonding between dogs and their handlers, definitely a book that can easily to be devoured in one sitting. If you're looking for a light suspense romance read, this book is for you.
