This K-9 will stop at nothing to keep a child safe.
When a little boy is threatened, Officer Daniella Vargas and K-9 partner, Zara, are assigned to pose as his nanny to uncover the culprit’s identity. Suspecting one of the guests in his inn, widower Sam Kavanaugh’s only option is to begrudgingly trust Daniella and Zara to help. But can they solve the case and its mysterious connection to Sam’s late wife before it’s too late?
If you like Christian suspense books that include a strong female lead and a working dog, check out Undercover Assignment by Dana Mentink.
Daniella is an officer with a K-9 partner named Zara. Daniella poses as a nanny for a young boy named Oliver, who has been threatened. The culprit is believed to be a guest at the inn where the boy lives. Sam, the boy’s father, a recent widower, and the inn owner, must trust Daniella and Zara to keep his son safe and solve the case. However, that proves to be challenging at times.
The story gets interesting when evidence is found within the inn linking Sam’s late wife to the case.
The book was a fantastic page-turner staying true to the suspense genre. I welcomed the many but unexpected twists and turns throughout the story. I also found the mysterious link to Sam’s late wife a great addition, making the story even more intriguing.
Finally, I appreciated how the author was able to weave in Christian elements throughout the book. Sprinkled throughout the story are God’s timing, healing, and love.
Excellent read. I give Undercover Assignment 5 out of 5 stars.

More from Dana
What a joy to participate in a series with seven other talented authors! A continuity series is a set of books, each written by a different author, and each with its own suspense plot along with an overarching series plot and characters. It’s a very complicated project to complete, but the fantastic part is chatting, collaborating, and sometimes commiserating with other writers. What a rare treat, since most of our work is done alone in dark rooms with computer screens and bottomless cups of coffee! This series was especially fun to write because of the whole wilderness lodge setting which is my favorite type of story. Picture it! Ancient cliff dwellings, a freak electrical storm, twenty-four hours with no power and a killer on the loose! That’s my kind of suspense novel. I hope you will enjoy this multi author series as much as we enjoyed creating it!
