About the Book:
For the past year, Chloe St. John has been working as a K-9 cop with her German shepherd partner, Hank. After being dumped by her fiancΓ© for another woman, Chloe has decided that Hank is just about the only male she likes. She's over the whole romance thing and focuses her attention on doing her job. Because a serious case of human trafficking with connections to her missing cousin just landed in her lap.

When US Marshall Blake MacCallum's daughter goes missing, he's ordered to kill the judge he's protecting and tell no one about his daughter's disappearance or she will die. Blake races against the clock to rescue his daughter while Chloe and Hank are asked to be a part of the task force assembled to bring down the traffickers. Chloe finds herself attracted to the silent, suffering man, but thanks to her previous bad judgment, she wonders if she can trust him. And can Blake trust himself around this firecracker of a woman?

Releases July 31st!

Wow! What a tough subject matter to have as the centre of the investigation and it hits really close to home for quite a few characters. Right from the first page in the action starts and is non-stop the rest of the way through. There were so many times that I was holding my breath waiting to see what would happen next. It did not take me very long to connect with the characters and wanting things to work out for them. The villains had absolutely no regard for human life which made them terrifying. Can Chloe, Hank, Blake and the rest of the team find Rachel and the other girls in time?

I felt drawn to Rachel; she is in such a frightening position. I loved that we got to follow her point of view; this showcased not only how scary her situation is but her determination to overcome. She pushed herself in order to fight for freedom and justice, not only for herself but for the other girls as well.

It pained me to learn what Blake went through in his past relationship and how it has affected his relationship with his daughter. I felt his fatherly love shine though and really hoped Rachel would get the chance to know just how much he loved her.

I enjoyed how the talents of Chloe’s canine partner, Hank, were featured. I enjoyed how the relationship between Blake and Chloe developed slowly and took a back seat to the case. I liked that it was not pursued until the case was wrapped up. You could feel the connection between these two but they both put their focus on the case first.

Ms. Eason writes a gripping story that provides just enough detail for you to connect with the characters but does not go overboard on the details that will make you cringe. I loved this book and can’t wait for the next installment to be released.
