Yet another fantastic book by Ms. Heiter. Kensie Morgan was in Alaska to find her sister who was
Kidnapped. Was the note a hoax? She didn’t think so. She had to find out one way or another.
What she found was trouble and Colton Hayes with his dog Rebel. It wasn’t a great introduction and she wasn’t sure he would believe her anymore then the FBI and police did. They wanted her to give up, and put it all behind her. She needed his help along with Rebel’s.

When Colton saw Kensie he didn’t know what

This is my 1st time reading a book by Elizabeth. I loved the book. The way she draws you into the story right from the beginning is interesting. For its about the kidnapping of a sister 14 years ago with a new clue. I love Kelsie how she can't give up even if its for wrong reasons. I also love who Elizabeth picks for her hero Colter and Rebel. The fact that they are flawed by war makes the story stronger for they understand each other. Its full of action and suspense in it. The end is the bigges ...more

K-9 Defense by Elizabeth Heiter is a fast-pasted romantic suspense set in rural Alaska.

Kensie Morgan has never given up searching for her younger sister, Alanna, who was kidnapped at the age of five.  After learning of a note which is purported to have been written by Alanna, Kensie rushes to the small Alaskan town in hopes of finding her. Unprepared for the harsh weather conditions and isolated area, she cannot be dissuaded from her search for Alanna. Meeting reclusive Colter Hayes is a stroke

Kensie heads to Alaska in search of her sister who was kidnapped when she was 5. She has followed so many leads in her search and hit so many dead ends. Then in the dead of Alaska winter, she comes across another lead she thinks is credible and happens upon Colter. He has his own set of issues that he is avoiding working through by living near nobody. Elizabeth Heiter does not disappoint in this page turner. The mystery twists tighter before things start to unravel, and it's hard at times to tur ...more

A wonderful read. Beautifully written. Very engaging. Grabbed my attention and didn’t let go until the end. A lot of emotions, from Colt, Kensie, and of course Rebel. A completely different setting from Elizabeth Heiter’s previous books, Alaska. And even the setting plays a role due to the harshness of the weather. I didn’t want to put the book down once I started. I had to have the answer, would Kensie find her sister? Kensie goes to Alaska to find her sister that has been missing for years. Wh ...more

Her research has taken her into the minds of serial killers, through murder investigations, and onto the FBI Academy’s shooting range. Her novels have been published in more than a dozen countries and eight languages; they've also been shortlisted for th ...more

“She had no idea what she was asking. If he tried to help her, he knew what would happen.

He'd have a mission again. A reason to reconnect with the world.

And connections meant pain.”
