Guest Review from Donna Cline
What I think you should know:
Cold Case Pursuit a Romantic Suspense by Dana Mentink is the seventh book in the True Blue K-9 Unit: Brooklyn. While it does help to have read the prior books in the series, you can read just this book and understand all of the critical parts of the story.
What you might need to know:
Penny’s parents were murdered in front of her when she was 4, prior to their murder they were neglectful to her and her brother.
The Killer dressed like a clown.
What I think about this book:
Mentink has a gift for writing a fast paced book that captures your heartstrings. Penny was a wonderful yet heartbreaking character, I quickly grew to love her and hated how she had so many insecurities from her childhood before the murder and due to it. Tyler was a wonderful hero, his love for his daughter and how he was quick to become protective and invested in Penny was great to read. I loved Dusty and Scrappy! I could easily picture the antics of Rain and the dogs, they were a great addition to the story. I highly recommend this book to any Romantic Suspense readers.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Dana
I love book covers with adorable children on them, don’t you? There’s something so angelic about those wee folks on the covers. I have two bear cubs myself, young adults now, and I love them devotedly. Tell you what though. Sometimes, just occasionally mind you, they were a wee bit naughty. Don’t tell anyone, but one reason I enjoyed writing Cold Case Pursuit so much is that hero Tyler is the single dad of a little girl named Rain who is….er…a handful. Sure, she’s adorable, but she’s prone to disobedience and the occasional tendency to flush things down the toilet. So in addition to the edge of your seat pursuit of a murderous clown killer, there are the shenanigans of a precocious preschooler, a highly trained yet distractible police K-9, and a romance that doesn’t exactly run smoothly. Fun to write? You betcha! I hope you enjoy coming along with me on this True Blue adventure!
