Many thanks to Lisa and publisher Harlequin Books for my spot on this Blog Tour.
A fun read during turbulent times. I deliberately chose this book as I wanted suspense and murder along with hint of love. With a K-9 on the cover (and my friend GIN loving dogs) I had to read this.
When a couple was murdered and a child was the lone witness, the case reminded the cops of another murder with the same M.O. twenty years ago. Nate with his K-9 partner Murphy was soon on the right track to protect the child and her aunt Willow and get to the murderer.
My first book by author Laura Scott, I relished it with a gusto. I needed a whodunit which didn’t have too many gruesome scenes despite being a Copycat Killer. The author did a brilliant job in keeping my mind distracted for three hours.
There was action and suspense in the entire plot. Romance too awakened between the lead characters but you know me. I didn’t read much of that. So I skipped that and went to the basic investigation. I loved the whole trope of K-9 and cop getting to the truth.
Camaderie and friendships were well shown. The writing kept me stuck to my kindle with minimal stress. Characters were dynamic, and I basically didn’t want to solve anything. I just wanted to escape and live inside the book. Thanks to the talented author, I soon got back a small amount of my sanity with this pre-midnight read.
A fun murder mystery.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

Murder strikes close to home
for a new K-9 unit in Brooklyn
When a double homicide is strikingly familiar to a twenty-year-old cold case, Detective Nate Slater is rattled by the parallels. With a child as the only witness, he and his K-9 partner must protect little Lucy and her aunt, Willow Emery. Nate’s rough past means he always keeps an emotional distance…but in this case getting closer is the only way they’ll all survive.
