First things first. Author Jerusha Agen. I NEVER miss an opportunity to read her books!
I have LOVED her Guardians Unleashed series. It’s filled with strong women, each one with a different skill set that is integral to the success of the Phoenix K-9 Security and Detection Agency. They’re all very different people, many of them women of faith. One is a demolitions expert. Another, a woman who runs the cybersecurity setup for the agency. Each woman has a K-9 (or trained service dog) with a different talent and training. And the protagonist of Covert Danger? She’s a CIA agent in hiding, who’s changed her name and identity to keep herself from being framed for a murder.
Amalia Pérez is a fascinating character. One who has loved, yet been burned and betrayed by that love. Who cared for the weak and small–until she learned at a horrible cost that she just can’t. And one who served her country with pride and honor, until someone else made that service impossible. So Amalia has coped. She’s built walls. Shut down her tender heart. And become even more of an exceptional and effective warrior than even the CIA trained her to be. Until her walls are threatened by the reappearance–and assignment to protect–her best and most beloved friend from her childhood.
Michael is an effective and idealistic journalist, one who’s written exposés which brought down traffickers, criminals, and those living nefarious double lives. When he’s reunited with Amalia, he can’t believe how she has changed. And his efforts to investigate what happened to her in the years that they’ve been separated might just put them in unimaginable danger. (Not to mention the feelings they’re developing for each other, at a seriously inconvenient moment!)
I absolutely loved Amalia’s character arc. I was also inspired, again, by the female friendships of the agency. They support one another, have each other’s backs, and work alongside their teammates (including their K-9s) with trust, humor, and extraordinary strength and faithfulness. I really liked Michael (even though there were moments when I wanted to shake him) and his faith and idealism. And Rocky, too!
Don’t miss Covert Danger. You will LOVE Amalia and Michael–and of course, the dogs! Incredible suspense that is uplifting and fascinating.
