Title: Lone Star Protector (Texas K-9 Series #6)
Author: Lenora Worth
Publisher: Love Inspired Suspense
My Rating: 5 stars
This story is the conclusion of the K-9 series that reminds us of the consequences of redemption and retribution played out by two main characters. Throughout the whole series the overarching mystery has revolved around a man who cannot easily be identified, but is known throughout the crime syndicate as “The Boss.” He has terrorized the Sagebrush community for years though has recently been ramping up his quests and without hesitation ordering the lives of others to be extinguished.
The captain of the K-9 unit is the focus point of this story, and it becomes apparent that all the occurrences over the last couple of years are somehow tied to him. Now the team of police officers with their K-9 partners must put together the puzzle pieces before someone else is placed in danger.
Each book of the series beginning with Tracking Justice, Detection Mission, Guard Duty, Explosive Secret, Scent of Danger and Lone Star Protector have been filled with adventure to make a grand series of stories. The dogs and characters are hard not to care for, especially when faced with imminent danger. I better understand now why reaching the end of a series is hard for authors who become so attached to their stories. While I truly found the continuity and individual books fascinating, it is still hard to know that this series is complete.
In the series, canines are shown to be attached to their handlers and vice versa. There are themes of love, hope, faith, and a score of budding romances. Facing the unknown brought many of the characters in contact with their deepest heart’s desire: a relationship with the Lord or a renewal of that special relationship. It is my fervent hope that readers will read the whole series of these stories and enjoy them as much I did! There are more stories published by Love Inspired Suspense, and I for one plan on reading more of them in the days ahead. Will you join me?
