I enjoyed this clean Christian based story that is an addition to the contemporary Lawkeepers series and also one of the K-9 stories. There is a great cast of characters along with two special people and some of their personal issues that will become involved in a relationship. This story has strong Christian principles and faith in God.

Officer Aiden O'Connell joined the Clear Mountain, Colorado police force, along with his K-9, Cooper. He is the second K-9 team that also works with search and rescue; the first time is Zach and his K-9, Harley. Aiden needed a new location after his fiancé left him for another police officer, one with a better rank. He is over the women who are nothing more than badge bunnies. After the death of his parents when he was in college, Aiden turned away from God and the Christian upbringing he was raised with.

Social worker, Lindsay Wright wants to make a difference for children. She knows that they are usually victims of circumstances beyond their control and need a voice to speak of for them. She has poured herself into her job since the breakup with her boyfriend over a medical condition that the doctors have told her will prevent her from carrying a baby to term.

The story shows the lives of both the K-9 officers and their dogs on multiple search and rescue calls and how they usually can make a difference. It also shows the work that Lindsay encounters as a social worker and the children she assists.

Not once, or twice, but several times Aiden and Lindsay have run into each other, and while they seemed to like each other during the brief encounters, nothing seems to happen. Lindsay is wearing a ring on her left-hand ring finger, does that mean she is married? What happens when Aiden casually ask her about her son, Alex, or her husband? Is that the opening for a date?

“She wondered if she had finally just had her serendipitous moment?”

When he finally asks her out, could it go any more wrong than it does? Barely into the date, she will ask him to take her home. She is so disillusioned with men and their shallowness. God works in mysterious ways and through the new series of sermons at church that Lindsay and her roommate, Erica attend. What happens with Aiden shows up at church and ask for another chance? Can she trust him and allow that to happen? Will this be what it takes for Aiden to turn back to God?

Both Aiden and Lindsay have a past with family issues and also with people they dated. As they get to know each other better, can they see a chance for a future? When a little boy, Alex, that Lindsay has a soft spot in her heart tries to contact her and then can’t be found, she turns to Aiden for help. Together they learn to lean on each other and trust in God.

“Nothing is wrong with wishing for something, because sometimes wishes do come true.”

Together, Aiden and Lindsay discover that God never turns his back on us and that he is always there when we come back into His fold. Also, that with the right person there is a chance for a bright and happy future.
