After a prominent senator's son is murdered, Capitol K-9 Unit captain Gavin McCord wants answers. The senator was a mentor to Gavin, and he'll stop at nothing to bring the killer to justice. With his team of elite K-9 cops and his loyal dog, Glory, at his side, Gavin discovers that a child at Cassie Danvers's nearby foster home may have witnessed the murder. He's drawn to the determined and beautiful woman, but she doesn't want him interviewing her traumatized charges. Yet trusting Gavin is the only way to stay one step ahead of the deadly gunman when Cassie becomes a target.
Capitol K-9 Unit: These lawmen solve the toughest cases with the help of their brave canine partners
I just love the K-9 Unit. Gavin's job is to protect and serve. He and Glory (his k-9 partner) are investigating a murder when they come across Cassie. Cassie has had a stressful night of her own trying to evade a man with murder on his mind. I just loved Cassie's heart for kids. She has her own past but she does love the kids as if they are her own.
Gavin has his own past, slightly similar to Cassie's, that has taught him how to help kids cope with stress. Their similar backgrounds make both of them wary of people, but both have always wanted/needed love. With the kids in danger and trying to keep Cassie safe, Gavin has his hands full. He isn't an over-the-top cop but a really well written one that is very likable.
It was a 4/5 for me. I still have questions that hopefully are answered in the next one!
