ON A KILLER'S TRAIL
While on a mission to bring his sister's killer to justice, bounty hunter Riley Martelli spots a missing FBI agent in a Colorado national park. When he calls in the tip, he's joined in his search by Special Agent Harper Prentiss. Harper, aided by her faithful German shepherd, is determined to locate the missing agent...without falling for the charms of the handsome bounty hunter. Working together is the best option to find their targets, but it also doubles the danger they're in. With a killer looming large, poised to end their search for good, can Riley and Harper unite to find both men without becoming the next victims?
Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great adrenaline pumping series that will keep you glued to this book!August 18, 2017Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4One of my favorite jobs in the police force has to be the K-9 unit. As an animal lover I would love a job working with a dog and being in sync with them they are part of who you are. Then again, I would hate to think of sending a dog into a situation where they might not make it out alive, thus saving yours. I don't think I could do it. However if you pick up the series of books through the Love Inspired Suspense division from Harlequin, you might just want to pick up Bounty Hunter by Lynette Eason, book 4 of the Classified K-9 Unit.
In each book, they go deeper into the lives of the team of classified K-9 handlers working together as a team to locate one of their own, Jake Morrow, whom they believe may have been kidnapped by a local crime syndicate or acting as a double agent. They have had no luck with following up the tips they have been receiving lately until a random call from a bounty hunter, Riley Martelli who has been shot at by the man they've been trying to find.
When the K-9 unit arrives, FBI Special Agent Harper Prentiss and her dog Star are the first to talk with Riley. At first the team is unsure of his motives, especially when he seems eager to collect the $100,000 reward money leading the capture of Jake Morrow. So Harper follows him and learns that Riley needs the money to pay for his nephew's medical bills after being shot by his father Van Blackwell, who murder Riley's sister and left Asher, his nephew in his custody and now care. He has a bullet wedged along his spine and until he has surgery, he can't walk. So between helping the FBI catch Jake, he is also following his own pursuit to find and bring Van Blackwell to justice, if he doesn't kill Riley first.
I received Bounty Hunter by Lynette Eason compliments of Harlequin Love Inspired Suspense and TLC Book Tours. This is a pocket paperback which means you can take this book anywhere to catch up on this suspense adventure and trust me, there is NEVER a dull moment. I can't wait to read the entire series and readers even get a chance to get a sneak peek at Book 5, Body Guard at the conclusion of this one. I really love the tight knit family of FBI K-9 handlers because they work so well together and even manage to aid Riley in his own endeavors when one of their own is threatened. I love how it all wraps up in the end on one hand but gets you ready for the next adventure on the other. Trust me, murder mystery lovers and animal lovers will want to pick this one up. I give this a 4 out of 5 stars in my opinion.

He is joined by Special Agent Harper Prentiss and her faithful German Shepherd Dog, Star. The danger is soon doubled, with the FBI agent and the bounty hunter searching for two subjects.
The action flows freely and the book is well written. I enjoyed it very much and intend on reading the next book in this K-9 series.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love this seriesJune 28, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Things really heat up in this fourth installment of the Classified K-9 Unit continuity series. There are some startling revelations in the over-arcing suspense plot that will carry through all six books when we will finally get full resolution.
But there is also a suspense thread unique to Riley and Harper's story -- and it does have a satisfactory conclusion...after a breathless game of cat and mouse with a sinister felon who has murder on his mind.
This hero and heroine understand each other -- both are law enforcement professionals with distinct goals and plans for their futures. Neither has the time or inclination for romance. Love it when characters dig in their heels, forcing the author to drag them kicking and screaming towards their happily ever after. LOL
And, of course, I adore the K-9 aspect of this series. German Shepherd Star is our canine heroine in Bounty Hunter and she proves to be as stalwart and faithful as her counterparts in the K-9 Unit. Nothing like a little dog drool to cement a relationship. :-)
