Release Date: May 25, 2021
Genre: Christian, Romantic SuspenseIt’s up to a K-9 handler and her canine partner to stop a bomber before it’s too late.
Someone’s planting explosives on dams in the Twin Cities, and Bristol Bachmann and her bomb-sniffing dog must move quickly to find them before everything ends up underwater. That means relying on the dams’ supervisor—an ex-boyfriend Bristol never thought she’d see again. Hopefully Remington Jones has grown up from the rakish charmer she knew in her academy days. Because lives now depend entirely on them…
It’s an environmental terrorist who wants the dams gone, and his bid to set the waters free has lethal consequences. When he sees Bristol and her K-9 working to stop him, he sets his sights on them. Can they evade him in a lethal game of cat and mouse and protect the cities from devastating destruction before the clock runs out?
Jerusha Agen imagines danger around every corner, but knows God is there, too. So naturally, she writes romantic suspense infused with the hope of salvation in Jesus Christ. Jerusha loves to hang out with her big furry dogs and little furry cats, often while reading or watching movies. Find more of Jerusha’s thrilling, fear-fighting stories at JerushaAgen.com.
“Hey, Bachmann. Good to see you.” Miles gave her a smile as he passed through with Duke.
“You, too, Miles.”
Toby wagged his tail but held true to his training and didn’t try to smell the other dog as they followed Miles through the entryway and second set of doors.
They rounded the barricade blocking the entry from the escaping people and stopped in the lobby where the crowd dwindled to a trickle as the remaining visitors exited.
“I’m glad the sergeant called the Phoenix K-9 agency to bring you in, too.” Miles’s green eyes pulsed with his charac¬teristic insatiable energy. “Nick is out with an injury.”
“Oh, no.” Heavy blow to the MPD Bomb Unit, losing the K-9 star of their most experienced detection team. “Is it bad?”
“Just a sprain. Training injury. I’m glad we have backup now with your new partner.” Miles grinned at Toby.
“Me, too.” Relief washed through her. Maybe Miles understood why she had left MPD’s bomb squad to join the private K-9 security and detection agency owned by Phoenix Gray. “So what have we got here?”
Miles dropped his smile. “I was told the threat indicated an intention to blow up the dam, so there could be one or more devices anywhere in the building. Or in the dam itself.”
Nerves twisted her insides. She’d hoped the target was the new visitor center, not the actual dam. She swallowed hard. “Wouldn’t that cause flooding?”
“Probably. The safety supervisor for the dam is supposed to meet us—”
“That’s me.” The masculine voice with a hint of roughness singed her ears. It couldn’t be…
“Sorry to be late.”
She turned to see the source of the voice.
“I was overseeing the evac…” Remington Jones stood six feet away, his sentence dying off as his gaze locked on her face. He’d grown a closely trimmed beard and his golden brown hair was longer on top, but there was no change in those un¬mistakable chocolate brown eyes or the grin that slowly curved his mouth. “Bristol Bachmann.”
The sound of her name on his lips stirred her nervous stomach as though fish decided to take a swim in the tension pooling there.
“You know each other?” Miles cut in like a life preserver.
“Very well.” Rem gave her a too-familiar grin, as if they were still dating and she hadn’t learned his true character.
She tightened her abs, forcing away her silly schoolgirl flut¬ters. She may have fallen for him six years ago, but she never made the same mistake twice. Apparently, she needed to make that clear. “You’re in charge of dam safety?”
