Scent of Danger

More pieces of the puzzle are revealed along with some unexpected twists and turns in book 5 of the Texas L-9 Unit.

Scent of Danger brings us closer to the "boss" and understanding what's going on in Sagebrush. Personally, I can't read the books fast enough. I want to see how this all plays out.

It was heart wrenching for Melody. Some of the things she learned about her nephew and sister just made you want cry. Yet each revelation, and in spite of the danger, made her tenaciously

Whew! The ending of this novel was so exciting and really captivating!

Tracking Justice, Detection Mission, Guard Duty, Explosive Secrets and now Scent of Danger intro

Detective Melody Zachary has set up a teen centre in memory of her nephew Daniel to help teens like Daniel & keep them off the streets.

Only someone seems to think that it is the perfect cover to distribute drugs to teens.

That makes Melody furious. She is going to find out who is making a mockery of the centre. In doing so, she just may find out who killed Daniel. And that has now put her right at the top of someone's hit list!

A good continuation in the Texas K-9 Unit series - this is #5. I r
A proper romantic suspense fiction.
The potential emotional impact from both the threats and the hurting part Melody faces are deepened her attraction to Parker, and the favor is mutual.
Transition between process steps within a suspense to romance process was featured as dependencies between two main leads, which can realize the equilibrium of beliefs and actions.

Another good read in the series. I began to have a guess as to the identity of the Boss in the last book and that guess seemed to be supported in this book or else it sure is a good "red herring." I look forward to reading the next book to see if I'm right.

Terri Reed is a proven Christian romance/suspense writer, and she doesn't disappoint in this book 5 of the Texas K-9 unit series. Great research and understanding of the K-9 officers. Absolute surprise ending!

Scent of Danger review

Scent of Danger is the fifth exciting romantic suspense book in the Texas K-9 Unit series written by author Terri Reed.
Aug 20, 2013 Mary rated it it was amazing
Written well as usual by Terri Reed, the loss of Detective Melody Zachary's nephew has pushed her into a search for the killer. Not wanting to believe that her nephew and sister were involved with the BOSS of drugs in the area, the investigation points that way. Melody has a partner at the Teen Center where she works some of the time, but another young detective begins to take on her obsession to find out who the BOSS is and why people have been murdered. He is kind, attractive and available...h ...more

As I am not a religious person, when I first realised that this book was faith orientated I was a bit put off at first. But reading it I was comforted that it wasn't full of religious messages. Despite this I didn't mind this book as I like saga's but from the get go I 'knew' who the suspect would be. That was a bit disappointing but the saga still continues which I like. Overall it was well written despite my perceived misgivings on the religious theme and I finished it with a sense that I want ...more

Love Inspired Suspense Texas K-9 Unit series It only took a morning to read. Brings in other stories from the series so you "know" some of the people. I had a couple of things figured out, sort of. Melody and Parker and his dog Sherlock save the day! Can they trust in love again? it is Love Inspired, so you can guess the ending!

I like this type of book because it is a quick easy read, the books fit in my purse for when I am waiting for something, and I don't really have to think too much as I re

Probably one of the worst I have read, and I have read A LOT of these "love inspired suspense" novels (my wife got me hooked). The editing was so bad that, in one point, the dialogue was senseless. In addition, it is the 5th of a six part series of mysteries, and was so poorly written that, not only did I figure out from the beginning who the villain was, the book probably told me who the villain in the next book will be.

The Texas K 9 Unit series continues as the team draws closer to finding who is head of the crime syndicate. Parker and Sherlock team up with Melody to find out who killed her nephew, and yes, Melody and Parker begin a beautiful love story.

Loved the book, full of lots of action, but my print copy some of the pages were in the wrong order, but I figured it out, and the book is great, have already starting reading the last book in this series.

I don't know if its because I just read a few amazingly well written novels that this one seems so poorly done or if its just so poorly done. It just never grabbed me and I didn't care for the characters :(
