Staying away was harder than he thought …
Recovering from an accident was hell on anyone, but, for a stubborn guy like Carter, it was worse. No way would he be a burden. So he stayed away from Montana, where his best friend lived … and his best friend’s sister.
Until Geir and Cade ask Carter to check up on a dog delivered to a small town close by, but the dog never arrived. Considering this was one of the missing War Dogs that Titanium Corp was handling, Carter was happy to assist. Maybe even relieved as it gave him a reason to go where he’d been afraid to go before.
Walking into her partner’s office to find his dead body on the floor had sent Hailey down a nightmarish path that never seemed to end. Then it had started with Carter’s arrival. What else should she expect from the man who she’d always loved and who had rejected her time and time again. She’d hoped the attraction to him would have lessened by now, but it was even worse.
As the body count mounts, and the town takes sides, Hailey realizes that Carter was always the one to back her up, even when it meant he could die in this fight that’s gone to hell. Particularly when Carter finds the missing K9 dog, and his current owner is on the wrong side of the war …
Only Carter doesn’t care, knowing he’d always stand on the side of right, but maybe—if he was lucky this time—he wouldn’t be standing alone …
Carter (The K9 Files Book 7)
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Booksprout and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
If I could give this more than 5 stars, I definitely would. The mystery and intrigue surrounding the disappearance of this particular War Dog (WD) is one that kept me turning pages to get to the end. But there is more going on then just a missing WD. There have been several murders. Either the key suspect or the next murder victim, Hailey, is Carter's best friend's (Gordon) younger sister. Hailey has loved Carter for so long. But she made a play for him and was turned down. Then Carter married a b!t@h, a double whammy to poor Hailey. The sparks off of these two were hot. Gordon called it correct to Carter about Hailey's attraction but poor Carter doesn't see it.
I adored the dual POV format that the book was written in. Getting into both Carter's and Hailey's thoughts really helped me to thoroughly connect with them. The action was fast and furious. The mystery and intrigue just kept piling on. I couldn't read fast enough.
There was a sexy scene but it was tastefully written with nothing graphic in nature. I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book to anyone over the age of 18. This can be a stand-alone story BUT the entire series is really fantastic and shouldn't be missed.
