                What kind of adventure grabs your attention?  Is it books with love, battles, relationships, animals, friends, military or nonmilitary?  This latest novel by Ronnie Kendig is a riveting page-turner that keeps you going literally until the last page!  There are intricately woven threads of clues that include all the above that might fool the reader into thinking he/she knows how the ending is going to play out.  An author who writes stories like this is definitely one to follow!
                Heath is in the Green Berets and is the handler of the MWD named Trinity.  She isn’t treated as a pet but rather what she is, a part of the military.  The many tasks, assignments, and training form a bond between Trinity and Heath.  The opening pages introduce us to the characters closing in on an enemy.  What happens next changes the course of the lives of the whole spec-op unit.  As you read Trinity Military War Dog, a lot of information is packed in about war dogs and the service they have had as well as continue to provide.  At the end of the book, readers are told what sparked the author to use her gift for storytelling to shed light on the history of war dogs.
                Then, we are introduced to a whole variety of characters that may or may not be what they appear to be.  Some of them come from British intelligence, the Chinese government, and even the Russian military.  All are somehow tied to each other in the cold months in Afghanistan.  Russia is loosely tied into a secret with the Chinese to detonate bombs that are meant to throw confusion into locating them as the finger-pointing begins as to who are the real traitors. 
                Darci (or is it Jai?) has gone undercover and infiltrated the foreign government at the highest level possible.  Now, with soldiers after her, she runs into someone who just might love the “real” her.  With all her might, she forces away the love interest to focus on her very difficult and most demanding assignment yet.  When she is at the lowest point in her life, questions about God smack her full in the face.  Now with so many lives, including her own, hanging in the balance will she return to the God her mother lost her life over?
                I could share much more about the story and the various themes that are highlighted here, but that would ruin your enjoyment.  It is a wonderful and fun work of fiction to read that kept me on the edge until I read all the way to the end!  Grab a copy, hold on to your hat, and enjoy the ride!
My rating is 5 stars!

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.
This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
