    Two books in one quick, easy reads Good suspense and good characters although the stories are so short that the couples fall in love really quickly Not sure I would trust the police in this town who are constantly checking for the bad guys and then still allowing them to slip in and cause problems But without that, I guess we wouldn t have a story.

    A continuation of the Capitol K 9 series with two short stories It is great to see Virginia and John Forrester s relationship beginning while he protects her life Then Dylan Ralsey, in the second story, finds a woman to love Both stories reintegrate the courage of these great officers.
