Mission to Protect by Terri Reed ~ Review

Lucie's Review:

The first in a new series about Military K-9's, set at Canyon Air Force Base.

The Red Rose Killer from prison and breaks onto the secure Air Force base, letting all the dogs loose, and to leaving roses for his former basic training classmates. Felicity escapes death when she unknowingly switches shifts, and is missed when the killer comes after her.

Sergeant Westley James puts himself and his dog, Dakota, in charge of protecting Felicity. Wes has always been gruff and tough on Felicity, so she is surprised when he volunteers to keep her safe. Wes has always been aware of Felicity and tried to keep his distance from her because of the military's no fraternization policy.

Can Wes and Dakota help to keep Felicity safe before it's too late?

Felicity is still grieving her father's mysterious death, her father's friend is unofficially investigating, and strange things have been have been happening even before Red Rose escaped. Felicity is given a position as a military photographer in hopes that something will turn up in her pictures and to draw out the killer. Felicity was raised in a military family, she's smart and capable, but feels like she has to prove herself everyday as a woman in her father's shadow.

Wesley is an excellent dog trainer, he understands the work you have to put in before you can rely on a dog. He is good at his job and is committed to the Air Force. He struggles to trust, due to his rough growing up, but Felicity brings out the best in him, and draws out his softer side.

Suspenseful, with three ongoing mysteries throughout the book. There's a lot going on and it sets up the future books in the series well, I like how this book explores the discipline of the military K-9s. Felicity and Wes book are strong characters, who can come off like they have a chip on their shoulders, but they bring out the best in each other. A great start to a new K-9 series!
