Seek and Find is book three in the Rookie K-9 Unit continuity series. I have not read the other books, yet this story stood on its own just fine. Seek and Find has tons of intrigue and danger and plenty of questions about who is behind the multiple deaths that have occurred over the past years.
I really liked the main characters, Madison and James. They both came from complicated backgrounds. Both had serious trust issues. And both had guilt weighing them down, especially James.
The distrust that they both had for each other made for some tense situations as James and Madison were thrown together. The attraction they felt for each other, yet resisted due to their insecurities, was powerful and worked well with the story. Seek and Find was a very suspenseful, exciting, and enjoyable book to read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Reporter Madison Coles wants to write an exposé on the crime spree rocking Desert Valley, Arizona—but the small town’s residents and police are tight-lipped. Even when Madison herself is attacked, the only help she can get is protection from rookie K-9 officer James Harrison and his trusty bloodhound. Suspicious of the reporter’s motives, the handsome cop keeps her at arm’s length. But the more Madison’s life is threatened, the more focused she is on finding the truth—and the closer she gets to James. Can he help her find the story without them both ending up in the obituary pages?
