Publisher Description

Just because helping out is the right thing to do doesn’t make it easy …

Pierce is on the hunt for Salem, a K9 military dog that belonged to Pete, a veteran, who can no longer look after himself or the dog. So the dog has been handed from owner to owner—until she’s become too much to handle—and now the law is involved. No one has Salem’s best interests in mind … and they definitely don’t have Pete’s either. Pierce is about to change all that … whether they like it or not.

Hedi, a young deputy, has lived in Arrowhead, Colorado, all her life and knows Pete and Salem but was helpless to do much when greed overtook his friends and family. She recognizes in Pierce the same qualities that Pete has, and, by Pierce’s actions alone, she knows a corner has been turned. She also understands the locals won’t take it lying down, and this means war …

Pierce served his country overseas for many years, and seeing another veteran in trouble makes him realize the fight isn’t over, even after life in the navy ends. In fact, this battle has just begun. But … this one … Pierce will finish. And he plans to win.

Great action!

This is book 2 in the K-9 Files series and it features Pierce and Hedi. Pierce is a man of honor. These two hit it off as friends pretty quickly. In a town full of corruption, the good guys tend to gravitate towards each other. The story really tugged at my heart strings. Helping a rehabilitating veteran and his canine veteran war dog stay together, makes for a fabulous read! The action and suspense were great. Even though the story line was amazing, the romance was little on the slow side. Characters, good and bad, were fantastic. The flow of the story was constant and was full of action. I’m looking forward to more!

A happy ending for all

I was kindly provided this book as an ARC; in exchange for my honest review. This is book 2 of 3 (so far) in The K9 Files series. This book centers around Pierce and Hedi.

Pierce former Navy K9 handler is severely injured and his dog, Trigger killed. Now, Pierce is out of the Navy and tasked by Titanium Security (see SEALs Of Steel series) to locate/rescue one of a about 12 dogs potentially in trouble that had gone missing or were in bad situations. The dog assigned to Pierce to follow up on is Salem, a K9 military dog that belonged to Pete, a veteran, who was severely injured and forced to return to the VA rehab. Pete thought he’d left his beloved dog in the safe hands of his brother Ross. Only to learn his brother and others had abused her and were threatening her life.

No one has Salem’s or Pete’s best interests in mind. Pierce arrives in Arrowhead, CO to discover a county in crisis and a potential new love in Hedi.

I’ll state this story definitely flowed much more easily than the first in this series and didn’t feel so “laid-out.” Again, it seems the author is moving more toward writing mystery/suspense rather than straight alpha type romance that this genre typically falls in. It’s still very good, but may not be what the reader is expecting. As always, the grammar, editing and spelling are top-notch (which anymore is NOT common and makes me crazy 🥴.)

Pierce: The K9 Files 02

Pierce is the second book of the K9 series. He volunteers to search for the missing K9 Salem in Colorado and finds more than he expected. He meets Hedi, daughter of the former sheriff and a current deputy in a department that does not defend or protect. She is one of the few who is protective of the missing dog and her community. Together, Pierce and Hedi piece together what happened to Salem, her master and the going ons of the neighboring property. Respect, mutual support, community. Another wonderful book in the K9 series and I look forward to more books to come. Bravo!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
