She's bringing his son home

A missing little boy triggers San Diego K-9 officer Shannon Clemens and her canine search-and-rescue partner into instant action. For the rookie cop haunted by a childhood tragedy, bringing Sawyer Evans's son safely home is more than a job. It's a mission she can't fail… But forging a friendship with the father is a tactical error that could compromise her first solo assignment. Yet the deepening bond between them is almost impossible to resist…

Kate James is one of my favorite Harlequin Heartwarming authors and I love her K-9 Unit series.  The dogs in these books are such a fantastic addition to the stories.  This is the fourth book in the series but it can stand alone.  

In this book, Shannon is a new K-9 unit handler.  She and her dog specialize in search and rescue and she gets called in to find a missing boy who had been camping with his father.  Shannon lost her brother in almost the exact same way years before which is why she chose this profession.  Shannon desperately wants to find Sawyer's son and the two form a bond pretty quickly.

I really liked Shannon.  She was tough but still feminine and tenderhearted.  Sawyer was maybe not my favorite guy, I was a bit bothered by his back and forth commitment to Shannon but there was no denying his love and devotion to his son.  

The mystery kept me interested and wondering all the way through the book.  There were twists I didn't see coming and that always makes a book more fun.  

Content:  Clean, some mild kissing
