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!

My Thoughts

Undercover Assignment is written by Dana Mentink. Ms Mentink is one of my most favorite authors to read. If you have never had a chance to interact with her on social media, you are missing out. She is so funny, she will keep you laughing. Especially when it comes to her animals. 

Undercover Assignment is a Love Inspired Suspense book .This is part of the Rocky Mountain K-9 Series. I have not read all the books in the series, but I will. The books can be stand alone books, but characters from previous books are mentioned. Officer Daniella Vargas and K-9 partner, Zara are sent to go undercover as a little boys nanny. Daniella comes across as all business and not overly kid friendly. She feels like her talents could be used elsewhere and at first thinks that innkeeper, Sam Kavanaugh is overreacting.... Until she realizes he is not. 

True to Mentink style, the books contains a lot of action, suspense and heart pounding scenes. This is a book where everyone is a suspect.  Who would want to harm little Oliver? (The cover design team at Harlequin did such an amazing job with this cover). I loved the who dun it vibes through the book as Daniella and Sam  try and figure out who is behind all the chaos. 

This book is well written and  contains well developed characters. The book is full of action and suspense. I could not put this one down. Thank you to the author, publisher and Celebrate Lit for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
