A case of burglary, crime and love. Is Rylee the innocent dog-walker, in the wrong place at wrong time, as you appears or she is the master mind behind high-profile thefts. Logan, a local reporter must find out.
I give this story 4 stars! The authors makes Charleston, SC come alive. As a past resident it felt like I was back in the Navy walking the streets. The authors did this by giving acute descriptions and vivid scenery. The area that I feel this book could be improved in is it's christian message. Honestly, I didn't clearly see one. As well as I felt that they way the authors described the physical characteristics of the characters was a bit over the top. In the end if you want a fun story filled with mystery and intrigue with romance thrown in and you are not looking for a deep christian message this is the book for you!

This is another book I took with me on my trip to Red River. This was a book with filled with suspense. And if you like a good mystery, you'll like this book.
Rylee Monroe is a girl living within modest means while she supports a grandmother in a nursing home. Her grandmother is afflicted with alzheimers, but holds the key to so many things in Rylee's past. And Rylee is a dog walker for the wealthy families of Charleston. The only problem is that the people she works for are being terrorized with break-ins. And as you can suspect, Rylee ends up in deep trouble. There's a love interest in the form of a reporter thrown into the mix who begins to show Rylee the stick-to-it-iveness that she's not known in men.
The end of the book was a total surprise to me. I never suspected the real perpetrator. I can recommend this book to you---I think if you like a good mystery, you'll certainly enjoy this book!
From the picture on the front cover, I thought I was getting ready to read a story set in the 1920's or 1930's set in Charleston. I know, I know, if only I had read the back cover, I would have known, but very rarely do I read back covers preferring rather to be surprised by the story. Surprised is a pretty accurate term when I started reading about Rylee Monroe as she unclipped a leash from a dog collar. Wait, this story is about a dog walker? Did they have dog walkers in the 1920's. As I kept reading, my dog walker had roller blades, so I finally figured out it was set in present day. The story is set in a wealthy neighborhood in Charleston, South Carolina. Rylee Monroe is a sweet, caring dogwalker who's only ambition is to make sure the needs of her ailing grandmother are met. She surrounds herself with her family of dogs and is quite content until she becomes unintentionally involved in a string of robberies committed by an unusual burglar. Who the burglar is and why he/she is doing what they're doing is the premise of the book, and just where does the mysterious newspaper reporter, Logan Woods fit into the whole picture.I must say that this book had me guessing a couple of times, which is a good thing and most books are not able to do. I have to say, though, my favorite part of the book was the Authors' note at the end. It was very charming and actually made me want to visit Charleston even more than the book did.I would highly recommend this book. I am looking forward to reading more books from each of these authors individually and hope they will collaborate again.This book was provided to me to review by Bethany House Publishers.
Engaging whodunit; I stayed up late finishing this novel as I just had to confirm who the villain was. Loved both the hero and heroine as they displayed realistic qualities such as determination, fears and spunkiness. Loved the dogs and the setting! Not overtly Christian, could easily give this book to anyone who enjoys a mystery.
