ABOUT THE BOOK
Title: Deadly Conclusion Series: Deadly Secrets #3 Author: Kathy Harris Publisher: Iron Stream Fiction Release Date: November 2, 2022 Genre: Christian Romantic Suspense
A Fast-Paced Suspense Book You Can’t Put DownIn the thrilling conclusion of the “Deadly Secrets” series, search and rescue dog trainer Keely Lambert breaks in Titan, a new shepherd, during a rescue mission to find little Conner Wells. Aided by childhood friend, Beau Gardner of the TBI, who is also Conner’s uncle, Keely finds the boy deep inside Metropolitan Nashville’s Beaman Park. But Conner is not all that Keely finds. On the way back to the welcome center, she notices something sticking out of the dirt—the military dog tags of her father who disappeared more than two decades before. The discovery sets Keely on a hunt to unearth her father’s killer, only to be thwarted by multiple setbacks—the murder of Beau’s father, the kidnapping of her mother, and her kennel being set on fire in the middle of the night. After Keely is kidnapped, Beau leads a manhunt to find her before the outcome reaches a “deadly conclusion.”

My thoughts about Deadly Conclusion
Secrets. They often cover pain; or tragic events; or just something that their owner wants to put out of their mind.
Deadly Conclusion opens with working dog trainer Keely Lambert answering a call with her newly-trained German shepherd, Titan. A little boy is missing from a large, wooded park. When she and Titan are out searching for 6-year-old Conner, she’s reunited with the man she loved–whom she hasn’t seen in ten years.
Beau Gardner is an agent for the Tennessee Board of Investigation; and yes. He walked out on the young woman he loved ten years ago, without a trace or a call. And now here he is with her again, face-to-face. He has some forgiveness to ask for, and time to make up for. But frightening events are happening. And they don’t add up to an obvious suspect, or connections with the people involved: an elderly woman, suffering from disease; a little boy; Keely, and her coworker Adam. What is the connection between these people, the past, and a concealed secret?
Remember the old saying, ‘Never trust someone your dog doesn’t like?’
Keely Lambert, Deadly Conclusion
I have to tell you, there isn’t a Kathy Harris book that I’ve read that I didn’t love. The characters in Deadly Conclusion won my heart from the get-go. Keely: efficient, smart, disciplined, faithful to her family, the Lord, and the dogs she is training. Beau: a good man with family brokenness behind him, that impacted his choices; but who loves God and his people; and, a fantastic law enforcement agent. And the two of them together with quite a history.
The past really doesn’t ever go away, does it? Beau and Keely are discovering that in spades. The past of broken, unhealed relationships. Unforgiveness and pain. Flashbacks of a traumatic event. The loss of a beloved parent…and maybe more. Kathy Harris has crafted an incredible thriller (with a teeny tiny bit of clean romance tucked in) that will capture your heart and keep you holding (and later on, gripping) the book in your hands until you’ve turned the very last page.
It will give you chills, just as it did me. And you’ll be rooting for Beau and Keely–and for the very bad bad guy to get what he deserves. Don’t miss Deadly Conclusion!
