The killer has haunted Penny since her childhood, now he is out for revenge.
Penny finds herself under the protection of Detective Tyler Walker and his K-9 partner, Dusty after the re-emergence of a killer from her past. Tyler is determined to do his job, while also keeping his young daughter, Rain, safe from harm. Tyler is guarded and loves his daughter more than anything, I loved how devoted he is to his role as a father, as well as how he is also close to his mother who helps with Rain while he is working.
There is plenty going on in this story with great tension and an engaging plot, as Tyler and Penny come to depend on one another as they work to catch the vengeful killer. I liked how this book picks up Penny's story, which has been mentioned the background of previous installments of this exciting series.
Overall it was an entertaining read, with great themes of faith, trust and commitment. Rain is an adorable little girl and I loved seeing her interact with and get to know Penny. A suspenseful read with great plot tension as well as romantic. An enjoyable read!
I received a complimentary ecopy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.

More from Dana
I love book covers with adorable children on them, don’t you? There’s something so angelic about those wee folks on the covers. I have two bear cubs myself, young adults now, and I love them devotedly. Tell you what though. Sometimes, just occasionally mind you, they were a wee bit naughty. Don’t tell anyone, but one reason I enjoyed writing Cold Case Pursuit so much is that hero Tyler is the single dad of a little girl named Rain who is….er…a handful. Sure, she’s adorable, but she’s prone to disobedience and the occasional tendency to flush things down the toilet. So in addition to the edge of your seat pursuit of a murderous clown killer, there are the shenanigans of a precocious preschooler, a highly trained yet distractible police K-9, and a romance that doesn’t exactly run smoothly. Fun to write? You betcha! I hope you enjoy coming along with me on this True Blue adventure!
